This is what the end of output after I run sudo apt-get update on Ubuntu 12.04:

35% [Working]W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/eclipse-team/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/eclipse-team/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/eclipse-team/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

My version of Ubuntu is 12.04.

Update:

I figured out dates with this command

find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \;

Here is output:

As far as the first bunch of 404 errors is concerned, it seems that http://ppa.launchpad.net/eclipse-team/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise does not exist (you mention it in your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/eclipse-team-ppa-precise.list). I reckon you don't need this anymore, as the eclipse platform is included in the standard Ubuntu repositories.

The second bunch of 404 errors cannot be explained, unless you have other source lists that you didn't include here.

Have to solve this trouble? Can you explain more? –  nazar_art Sep 16 '13 at 10:20
    
Remove the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/eclipse-team-ppa-precise.list or comment out its contents. –  nickie Sep 16 '13 at 10:38
