I trying to remove this PPA without results.

I've Debian 8 as OS and want to remove the PPA since after running

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

it gives the error W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu/dists/jessie/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found

By running sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list I do not find the corresponding PPA e trying to remove it by running sudo add-apt-repository to update the package or sudo ppa-purge to delete it I don't get a solution.

Could someone suggest any solution to this problem?

Thanks all in advance!

The relevant files for ppa's are unter /etc/apt/sources.list.d.

apt-add-repository -r ppa:ehoover/compholio And avoid Ubunu-ppa's unter Debian. Debian !=Ubuntu. :D
