    You have two ways

    Method 1: Open your Software sources and from the Other software Tab you can disable them by unselecting the checkboxes of these particluar repos.

    Method 2 : Install Y PPA Manager

    Do try a few more times. If you hit the repository while it is updating, a 404 is possible.

    Edit the sources.list file.
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    Comment out the offenders by putting a hashtag (#) at the front of the relevant lines.
