It looks like precise(12.40 has not been added to the ppa yet

You can wait for these to be added and deal the error messages for now. Or you can untick them from the "Other Software" tab is Software Sources. Or you can permanently remove them from you software source list.

Hope this helps

I have the similar problem. When I changed mirror to main server I am getting this error

E:Unable to parse package file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-security_main_i18n_Index (1)

I am new to Ubuntu so may need solution in details. Thanks in advance.
