Hmm, looks like there is a problem with the site:

"Medibuntu has now been shut down, the packagers were either obsolete, unnecessary or moved to the official Ubuntu archive. "

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

To avoid the error, you can edit /etc/apt/sources.list and remove the offending line. If you are using libdvdcss, you could add the videolan repository to make sure you get updates.

Here's one way:

Code:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
That will open sources.list in the gedit editor.

Then add the appropriate line from the Videolan link in Robhogg's post and delete the dead repos. Save the file.

No what he was saying above that Mediubuntu reporsitory is shutdown for good, end of life.

So if you need libdvdcss or want to keep it updated, at the other repository he suggested. Even if you have it installed, I would recommend you to add the repository so it can recieve updates.
