Hello Mr. Martin... from the information you have provided, the error 
you are getting while updating your system's software, it appears that 
ppa listed in your /etc/apt/sources.list config file, related to 
google's Chrome browser.
Your error indicates that code/program your system attempts to update is 
hosted by launchpad.net and is maintained by Canonical - the maker of 
Ubuntu OS.
This error is absolutely unrelated to Tox chat client and has nothing to 
do with tox project what so ever.

Now, why are you missing the tox.ini file - that is something no one 
would be able to tell you. Is there a chance you may have deleted it by 

In any way, run:

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

to bring your tox client up to date and it may resolve your missing 
tox.ini file.

To fix the broken ppa link to update google chrome, you would have to 
edit by hand:

Place #1 - /etc/apt/sources.list

to do that, run:

sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list

Look for the PPA reference :




and simply delete them.

Once you deleted those two lines, save your sources.list config file and run:

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

This should help with error messages and failed update/upgrade command for apt-get.

Let me know if this makes sense... and if it worked for you.
