You didn't say which package manager you are using, apt-get et al.,
aptitude, or synaptic. So I'll assume the latter. In synaptic,
Settings-> Repositories. Then Other Software. Uncheck the repo you
don't want. Close. Then hit "Reload". That should do you.

The error message is harmless. It just means that that repo was not
updated. But other repos were, so you are OK.
