Ubuntu – Failed to download repository information | Ubuntu 12.10


I already checked for a possible answer to my question, but, how to fix this since my details are different from the other people here. Here's my error information on Software Updater:

[W:Failed to fetch http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
, W:Failed to fetch http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.]

Any advise would be great. Thanks!
