Hello, Brahim.

This error message does not mean that you experience any problem updating Linux Mint 14 at all.
All that this error message tells is that a particular PPA repository cannot be contacted.
Going to this address, http://ppa.launchpad.net/venerix/, I see a subfolder blug-deletedppa, but no more folder blug. This seems to suggest that indeed the PPA does no longer exist.
Visit this page: https://launchpad.net/+search?field.text=venerix and search for venerix. Find out whether the PPA repository has just been moved to a different location or whether it has stopped existing.
Correct the list of your repositories accordingly.

Thanks that's the PPA of Tv-Maxe I have removed it thus:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove --purge tv-maxe

sudo apt-get autoremove --purge

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:venerix/blug

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge

sudo ppa-purge ppa:venerix/blug

sudo apt-get update
