    No packages for quanal in that repository, you will need to remove the references to that ppa in software sources.
    after that things should work properly.

    But how do you find the reference to remove it? I'm not finding mine - QuickFox - by searching. If I go further into the line and look for that, I get thousands of names, none of which I understand. If I could just tell it to forget about the whole thing I would be so happy.

    This will work but you really need to know what you are doing.

    in Terminal

    Code:
    sudo -i
    type in your password

    Code:
    gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    add a # sign and a space in front on the line(s) you want to temp kill. then save the file. If all works great then go back into the file and delete that line or lines.

    Welcome to the forums.

    ... or go into Software Sources> Other Software and untick them. Refresh.

    I think you will need:

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    ... to delete the lines with the method given in the last post.
