squeeze-lts has been archived on archive.debian.org. The warning is
valid and it reminds people that the support for Squeeze has ended.

If you want to ignore this warning you can use the following apt-get option:

-o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false

sudo apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false update

However Alexander is absolutely right, our recommendation is to upgrade
to a supported version either Wheezy or Jessie.
