Sorry this is not a bug (unless new to ubuntu user error counts). I changed the url in the source list based on the error message and that fixed it. Sorry for the confusion on my part.

Thanks, Brian

Thanks Brian. Sorry about that. I actually fixed the problem after
rereading the error msg. I tried to remove the bug from the list serve but
couldn't figure out how? I just logged in and was able to close out the bug
report.

Thanks for your help, Brian
