Bug Description

I just noticed that following files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d have wrong urls which causes Elementary Loki updates not be delivered fine.

-elementary.list-
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu loki main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu loki main

-patches.list-
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/os-patches/ubuntu loki main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/os-patches/ubuntu loki main

Which needs to be updated as follows,

-elementary.list-
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu xenial main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu xenial main

-patches.list-
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/os-patches/ubuntu xenial main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/os-patches/ubuntu xenial main

Here's the 'apt update' error before the fix,
---

This brought updates for many pantheon-specific stuff.
If this is common for other users too,they might be missing future updates from Elementary not even knowing so.
