repository problem

i am using Ubuntu (now Kubuntu) 7.0.4. I am having a small problem. When i go to system-->update manager .... it finds some updates but gives an error for the following url saying it could not connect to it. i think may be i am using a wrong url or some thing.

Also, during apt-get update i get the following error

Err feisty-seveas/all Packages
404 Not Found

Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

Can anyone help me fix this problem??

Thank you for your help

I went to the second link you posted, and it said that dapper-seveas and edgy-seveas were available. I think that you also need to include the subdirectory dists in the url as in:
