    Exclamation Unable to purge Miro ppa (pcf/miro-release) from Ubuntu Natty Narwhal

    I've tried to purge the Miro ppa after I uninstalled it. I've tried using Ubuntu Tweak, Synaptic package manager and the terminal to remove it. I'm removing it because its giving me a 404 error when I try to update it.

    Here is the terminal code and response when I try to purge it:

    admin@mothership:~$ sudo ppa-purge: pcf/miro-release
    [sudo] password for admin:
    sudo: ppa-purge:: command not found
    admin@mothership:~$ sudo ppa-purge pcf/miro-release

    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/pcf/miro-re...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
    Warning: apt-get update failed for some reason
    PPA to be removed: pcf/miro-release ppa
    Warning: Could not find package list for PPA: pcf/miro-release ppa
    admin@mothership:~$
    Please help me completely remove this ppa. I need this fix urgently!

    UPDATE: I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal

    You didn't say what version of Ubuntu but for maverick ppa-purge. You might find it in the repositories for your version.
