E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I have also seen some suggestion in net to delete lines with multiverse and universe in /etc/apt/source.list but there is no ppa source line in that file

That PPA has apparently been removed. You'll need to contact its owner (https://launchpad.net/~rwky) if you can't find a replacement.

@cjwatson If I want to remove this ppa from my machine ? Do you have any idea about it maybe then after at least I will not get this error.

Colin Watson (cjwatson) said : #3

It should be in one of the files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory (you only mentioned checking the /etc/apt/sources.list file before).

Yeah got the file and deleted it. Now i am not getting any error thanks @cjwatson.

Can you help with this problem?
