doing apt-get update on google repository

Some chatter on the siduction forum recently about google changing where to download from

from DeepDayze post near end.
QuoteI suspect Google no longer allows direct access to the repo and I don't get it what caused the pepperflash updater to break. For now I just grab the Chrome deb and extract the pepperflash plugin manually.

Fell free to sleuth some more.
