It seems that the PPA jon-severinsson/ffmpeg has been set to restricted access.

I suggest that you try finding other sources (PPAs) for ffmpeg (and if needed for frei0r-plugins)

PPA candidates (for ffmpeg): https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=ffmpeg

redhwan nasser (algabri) said : #2

first of all, thank you so much
 I used (for frei0r-plugins):
this https://launchpad.net/~adrozdoff/+archive/ubuntu/opencv-ffmpeg
and used (for ffmpeg):
https://www.faqforge.com/linux/how-to-install-ffmpeg-on-ubuntu-14-04/

please help me, how to remove this message:
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/jon-severinsson/ffmpeg/ubuntu/dists/trusty/main/binary-i386/Packages 403 Forbidden

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

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #3

Try the command

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:jon-severinsson/ffmpeg

redhwan nasser (algabri) said : #4

I used it before, output:
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:jon-severinsson/ffmpeg'.
Please check that the PPA name or format is correct.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #5

What is the output of the command

grep severinsson /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list

redhwan nasser (algabri) said : #6

output:
/etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jon-severinsson/ffmpeg/ubuntu trusty main
/etc/apt/sources.list:# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/jon-severinsson/ffmpeg/ubuntu trusty main

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #7

Open a terminal and issue the command

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

This will ask for your password as confirmation for an administrative action and will then open an editor with the sources.list configuration file loaded.

Locate the two lines that contain jon-severinsson/ffmpeg (probably near the end of the file) and delete these two lines.
Save the file and close the editor.
