    Ubuntu 12.10 "Failed to download repository information"

    Wondering if anyone can help me out with this, whenever I try to use update-manager I get this error. I was able to update the other day but now I seem to be getting this problem :

    HTML Code:
    Failed to download repository information
    
    Check your Internet connection.
    
    W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/piotr-zagawa/ma2/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found
    
    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/piotr-zagawa/ma2/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
    
    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/piotr-zagawa/ma2/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
    
    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    I am not sure how to go about fixing this as I never had this problem before. was hoping to update to 13.04 today

    Thank you

    Maybe this will help http://askubuntu.com/questions/65911...or-using-a-ppa
    I would DL the iso from http://www.ubuntu.com or http://releases.ubuntu.com/13.04/ and burn it to a disk or make a bootable usb drive.
    Cheers!

    This PPA has no 12.10 listing and needs to be removed in your software sources list.

    No, we don't have that functionality.
    You have written a 'thank you' and the thread is marked 'solved' using the drop-down box, not the title (I removed that) so everything is fine. Welcome.
