E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/versable/elementary-update/ubuntu bionic Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

I tried accessing the link that had the error, and it is true, there is no "bionic" dist folder. Any fix for this?

EDIT: I have fixed it by running sudo add-apt-repository --remove http://ppa.launchpad.net/versable/elementary-update/ubuntu.
