Looks like a ppa that doesn't exist, Disable your ppa's before upgrading.

Suggestion, if I may, regarding "upgrade". Don't do it! If you want to step up a level in Ubuntu don't do it as an upgrade. Instead download the one you want, cut it to cd, save all of the files you want to keep on an external drive and do a full install.

I just tried going from 10.04 to 10.10 via "upgrade" on site and finally downloaded 11.04 and did a clean install. Too many hiccups in the "upgrade" to correct and it actually took longer than it did to download and clean install 11.04.

I took all of my important files, saved them to an external harddrive and loaded them back in when 11.04 finished. All working fine.

Hope this helps in your pursuit.

+1 on this quote you have to upgrade 1000 or more packages at times why not just do
a fresh install into same partition # and set up. Does not take that long and a lot cleaner.
Here is a couple of post installation guides for new users and a installation guide from Ubuntu with graphic views on how to do.

## And new users to firefox you can backup your firefox bookmarks and import them to
new install. Gives you a file .json when backed up and just have to select it when importing
does it by itself. Back them up a lot I would hate to lose my bookmarks.
