Ubuntu: 404 Not Found error after “apt-get update”? Here's how to solve

One of the most annoying problems that may occur during the use of Ubuntu, Is to not be able to "find" some of the imported repository. Typing the classic "sudo apt-get update" you will get an error like this:
404 – Not Found
and Ubuntu will suggest you to solve the problem, run the command with the suffix --fix. Unfortunately this will not be able to restore the situation and will not upgrade the system. How to fix then? Or open Software Sources and defeat all the PPAs that are causing you problems, or simply, you rely on a convenience script/smallprogram: fix404.

Fix404 is a simple tool that checks for errors such as "404 Not Found" and restores all the PPA disabling causing the problem. All you have to do is download the deb package (tested on Ubuntu 11.04 and Ubuntu 11.10) And install it. Now run the script by typing:
sudo fix404
and, once the process is finished, everything will be arranged and fully functional!
