this is sugree's launchpad page: https://launchpad.net/~sugree

somewhere along the line, you or another using your system with root privelages added his/her repository to your list of software sources.

let's go ahead and remove him from that list and give it a shot:

system -> admin -> software sources -> third party software -> uncheck the box that says 'sugree' somewhere next to it. now, run this:

sudo apt-get update

and see if things are cleared up.
