    Looks to me as if you have at least one third-party repository enabled that causes problems. Try to disable the repository and see if update manager is able to proceed.

    I tried to launch the Ubuntu Software Center but it does not launch. Is there other way to disable the repository?

    Open update manager. Bottom left corner is 'Settings'. Go to 'Other Software' and disable the repo.

    The settings button in the lower left corner of the update manager accesses the software sources, where you can disable the extra repos, in 'other software'.

    What version of Ubuntu are you running? It's always advisable to include this in support posts as different versions behave in different ways

    Re: Help with update manager

    From the error message, it looks like you're running Precise, if you're not, then that's the problem. The ppa is for a precise distro.

    Anyhoo, you can use terminal to remove the ppa

    There's a couple of ways:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository --remove [ppa string]
    where ppa string is the string you put into the add ppa dialog. That should neatly remove it. If that doesn't work, you can try

    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/ppa.launchpad.net_shantzu_clipit_ubuntu_dists_precise_main_binary-i386_Packages
    This will remove the offending file, but I'm not sure how neat that approach is and it's almost certainly better to use my first suggestion. Also check this:

    Code:
    ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d
    and remove any references to the shantzu repo with rm

    After either approach do

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    To update your package lists. That ought to do it
