It seems there aren't any repositories for ubuntu under packages.mate-desktop.org, so you might as well remove that one.

I have tried several mirror servers including the recommended one for my location and it makes no difference, the error message is still there.

@ grizzler

I can now confirm that removing the 2 Ubuntu packages killed the error message. Thank you very much for your help. Best wishes.
