When I update to "sudo apt-get update" appears this errors into terminal. How can I solved it? Thanks!

after googling your repository i deduced that you want to install facebook messenger desktop :)

so follow these instructions as said on github

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv 6DDA23616E3FE905FFDA152AE61DA9241537994D

2nd step, he said replace with stable, beta or dev so result can be (the recommended one is stable but you can also try the dev or beta one and you can uninstall it if it has a problem :

echo "deb https://dl.bintray.com/aluxian/deb/ stable main" |
  sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/aluxian.list


echo "deb https://dl.bintray.com/aluxian/deb/ beta main" |
  sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/aluxian.list


echo "deb https://dl.bintray.com/aluxian/deb/ dev main" |
  sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/aluxian.list

after that:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install messengerfordesktop

Try removing all the repository source with 404 error code, In case you would like to automate the same,

Go Here

Once the ppa's that are not found are removed apt-get update will work just fine.
