    problems running software updater

    I am running ubuntu 12.10 64

    when I try to check for updates I get this:

    W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-adk-...source/Sources 404 Not Found
    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-adk-...amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-adk-...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    ubuntu-adk-admins is either down or no longer available. Uncheck them from your software sources for now and try them again later.

    Re: problems running software updater

    Another way to do as ibjsb4 says (which is correct) is to run

    Code:
    gksu nautlius
    and navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and find the files corresponding to the non-existent repositories. Delete them and run the update again.
