Repository error (SOLVED)

When updating and for the last couple of months I have been getting a repository error on both LM13 and LM14 which doesn't seem to affect LM15. Below are the results of 3 commands which hopefully will enable one of you to explain what has happened and help me to fix it. Thanks.
