This post does not fit the theme of this forum. In fact, the error message says it all, ask the repository maintainer for a solution, they can fix it.

Okay, sorry for the inconvenience. I will be careful next time. Thanks for your guidance

No problem at all. Note that this is likely just a version mismatch, your Ubuntu version is Focal (fossa) and the repository is precise (pangolin). Removing the repo from your sources and replacing it with the right version should do it.
