Bug Description

Sorry if I filed this against the wrong package but it was a best guess. In anticipation of Ubuntu GNOME Vivid Alpha 1 I attempted and upgrade from Utopic to Vivid and get this error message:

W:Failed to fetch http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/vivid/main/source/Sources 404 Not Found
, W:Failed to fetch http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/vivid/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

The upgrade starts as expected if you first disable the extras/independent repos in software sources.

@ Bruce Pieterse, if you need the packages offered by the extras/independent repos you can use the Utopic versions of just those repos for the time being until the Vivid versions are built.
