Now... this is odd.
Focal Fossa is still supported.
And... Another thread was just opened on a similar issue:

At first, I was thinking that the user added a PicoNets repository.

But after seeing your thread, I did some checking.

The Regional Server for India is using Piconets Webworks to host their packages.

Please switch to the Main Server using Software & Updates
Under Download From: Select Main Server.
Close Software & Updates and allow it to refresh.
Next, in terminal, run sudo apt update and ensure that all repositories return a good status.

EDIT: I just contacted the piconets mirror to report the outage, in case they are unaware.

You can remove the duplicate volian sources file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory to fix this.
