For testing I have the Linux version of Google Chrome installed, recently I was seeing the following error in my Package manager

failed to fetch http //dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/release

The fix is fairly easy, update your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list file in the following way

deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

to

deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

Then refresh your sources list. The file does warn that it'll be auto generated. So this might well occur again, but doesn't seem to be auto-generated often so should be good for a while.
