W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
What does the quoted message mean?

I tried
Code:
sudo apt-get autoremove
to see if it can do something, but nothing happened but the message!!

It means exactly what it says: you have two of the same entries in your source.list. Specifically, the main Ubuntu ones are doubled. You should go into your sources.list and remove the duplicates.

You seriously need to fix your sources.list. The extra ppas you have are all wrong. They do not have packages for precise, only for oneiric. I would suggesting making a new one here. But if you can, fix it on your own.

Thumbs up Worked, thanks!

@kedarp @Abrinister Thanks to both of you. Kedarp deserves a real thank for making me understand the problem, its source and its nature in depth. Whereas Abrinister simply posted a link which made my problem solved.

BTW, apart from editing /etc/apt/sources.list, I had to put my hands on /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder and manually removed some entries. Does not sources.list and
Code:
sudo apt-get update
enough? Because when the problem solved and I ran an apt-get update, it was showing some "duplicate entries" in "var/...[whatever]" folder. I manually removed the entries from /etc/apt/sources.list.d and it worked.

Does Precise have some problems with google? I had to comment out google repos to get a result.
