As yu can see in http://ppa.launchpad.net/mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily/ubuntu/dists/ xenial is not supported. You have trusty or utopic version only. But you can use anther repository for Tweaks:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks
