Source list is the issue going to have to open up a terminal find that line that is starting with (URI) as posted and simply put an # before it til someone else can figure exactly what is wrong with that source. If you can post that entire line am sure one of use can figure out how to adjust it. Ubuntu Linux as a rule is set out of the box with wireless drivers in fact better than most other OS's have ever thought to be. Problem here is the source list and believe me I have made so many blunders on my own source lists that I know this is an easy thing to do for anyone. One month a source is read one way and next month, is a different story and useless. This has happened to me on countless builds I have created as I continually delve into making my own systems.

Unless that source list is fixed seems updating will not work. Is odd as in most cases I have seen, just get error messages at the end of sudo apt-get update. Any way be sure to do as said and if need anymore help just post and am sure one of us will get you on track.
