When running the update manager I get an error.

Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/murrine-daily/pp/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Your getting the standard 404 page not found error. The same you would get browsing the internet sometimes.

You may want to check the PPA for that and make sure something has not changed. The easy way is to copy and paste the URL into a browser and try to open it. Whomever owns that program may be doing something to the site and has it down for maintenance. Either way, you can keep trying the update and it should get through eventually.

Did you manually type this in ?

You might be missing an "a" from ppa... shouldn't the line read

I copied and pasted that from the error window.

The link works. Maybe just temporarily down.

The link is automatic in the update manager. Is there a way to edit it for the update manager?

Yes;
The line should be located in either /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
(I think it's in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/)

in a terminal use cd to navigate to the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
and typ
ls to get the list of files located in there

You can use gksudo gedit to edit the files there;

example:

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/team-xbmc-ppa-lucid.list
(the xbmc ppa)

or when it's in /etc/apt/sources.list

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

edit;
Ps:
After editing the file you needed to edit; save the file and try running update manager again

Alright so I edited the files, rebooted and tried again. It did not work. Found the sources list through the directory and opened it and found the link under other software. In there it allowed me to edit the link. Ran the update and no errors. Thanks for the help!
