You should delete the PPA added to the sources list.
Try this on a terminal:

~$ sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:elegant-gnome/ppa
~$ sudo apt-get update

thanks for prompt response but i still get the error whenever i do update manager

~$ sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Do this and try to find the line with something like

Delete the line, save the file and close the editor, then update

i cant seem to find the line you are referring to . . . is there a command that will automatically delete that line?

You have an error in the repository: Instead of saying "elegant-gnome" it says "elegant-genome ", so you can solve the error typing:
~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elegant-genome/ppa

and if it not solved, you can go to Software Sources in System → Administration, then Other Software, and there find the line and delete it or disable it
