No, it doesn't say that. The message does not include text-speak garbage...spell out your words.

Googling for this error brings up lots. The part of the error you need to pay attention to, you left out, which is WHAT repository(s) it failed on. Find that in the error box, and un-check the failed repository, or update it to the correct location:
