Ubuntu – Software Updater Issue 16.04


Whenever I click on software updater it says Failed to download repository information.

It's been saying this for the past few days now and I don't know why, my Internet connection is fine, I am able to manually download software.

Sometimes it crashes when I click okay, then attempts to look for updates again and gives me the same message.

Any ideas?

I just tried an answer posted where I reset where the downloads come from, but I was left with this message:

W:The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/noobslab/noobslab-conky/ubuntu xenial Release' does not have a Release file., 
W:Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.,
