Looks like they might have made some changes to the repo or you did not install the key.

The updater is correctly warning you that the URLs you yourself have added to your software sources are dead links. If you are new to Ubuntu then I recommend using the official Ubuntu repositories only to prevent this type of error. Users breaking their software sources is one of the Top 10 issues/questions I've seen in my years on Ubuntu Forums.
