W: Failed to fetch http://www.statux.org/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Then I tried sudo apt-get update and i get

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
So clearly something is wrong with banshee. When i try to update it via synaptic, I get a window that says "can't find repository indexes" and "Failed to fetch http://www.statux.org/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."

Any advice on how to get past this?

Open a terminal and copy and paste this command into it

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
type in your password when prompted hit enter and it will open Gedit for you with your sources.list file.

Now that your sources.list file is open comment out, by placing a # in front of the entries that correspond to the failed and ignored files in the list you have above. Now save your sources.list close the file and

sudo apt-get update

then tell us how you go.

'sudo apt-get update' only refreshes what needs updated from the repositories. To actually update your system you need to run update-manager or simply type in

sudo apt-get upgrade

Im having a similar but slightly different problem, I have th red-triangle in th corner, and when I click on "Check" for updates, an error message appears and it says to check my internet connection. The details listed in the error message box are this:

W:GPG error: http://debian.tagancha.org lucid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5BC4CFB8EEF818CF, W:GPG error: http://debian.scribus.net lucid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5BC4CFB8EEF818CF, W:Failed to fetch http://debian.tagancha.org/debian/dists/lucid/non-free/source/Sources.gz 404 Not Found
, W:Failed to fetch http://debian.tagancha.org/debian/dists/lucid/non-free/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found

, W:Failed to fetch http://debian.scribus.net/debian/dists/lucid/non-free/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
, E:Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

What to do. I know my connection is good as I have been installing updates, however this triangle is often around now and the same error message appears when I try and check for the updates.
