None of my accounts have delegates, most are having the issue.

Still no fix to this issue? This is not the kind of support we've come to expect & love from Apple and / or Google.

Mine has not thrown the error in a few days. I think the "fix" was rolled out. If you continue to have problems, clearing the cache and removing and completely re-adding your Google account is the first steps.
Just putting my "It looks fixed for me" out there.

I deleted accounts and caches and error messages are still popping up constantly... argh!!

few days it was not terrible...once or two times per day. However, Monday morning brought 3-4 "404 errors" per hour.

Same deal. Apparently they are "working on a fix" here:

Nevermind. Error was gone for a few days, but now it's throwing errors again. Not the 404 though.

Here's the answer, straight from Google:
tl;dr: it's a problem on their end, they know about it, and will take a few weeks to fix it.

ARGG! I removed and re-added my Google Calendar because of a similar issue and the problem got even worse. Before, it was more like only occasionallly telling me the error, but I was able to still modify my calendar and its delegates. However, after getting fed up with these error messages today, I removed and re-added the calendar but now I'm constantly getting the error messages and it can't access any of my delegates.

I suspect the issue has to do with closed ports as my school internet (I'm a teacher) has closed down certain ports. The errors do happen at home as well, but only after I've been at school where the errors are frequent. After being at home for a while, the errors seem to stop. Weird!
I haven't set up a VPN to bypass the closed ports and test this theory, but might if I have time to figure out how to do that.

I'm still getting this error:
https://email@example.com/user/ is not a location that supports this request.
I did follow the Google link mentioned above, but it seems they still haven't developed/pushed out a fix. It is getting really annoying.

I'm aware that this is a Google problem, but for me the the fact that Calendar keeps throwing dialog boxes about it is a bigger annoyance than the actual connection problem that cause them in the first place.
How much would it take for Apple to add a "Don't bother me about this again" option in the dialog box?
Does anyone know if it's possible to completely disable this error notification?

Adding my name to this list of frustrated Google / iCal users. I've tried a variety of things to solve this (all mentioend by others) without luck. These intermittent errors are driving me mental and I hope Google and Apple figure out how to play nice soon so I don't have to make a hard decision.

It's been driving me crazy, and one of my New Year's resolutions was to eliminate as many energy-draining annoyances as I could from my life. Sorry to say, Google Calendar was the first one to go! Now we just use iCloud calendars.
For a variety of reasons (including the fact that my employer may start to use Google Calendars for scheduling meetings beginning in late 2013), I'd _like_ to use Google, but it just wasn't worth the annoyance.
Let me know if there is a proven fix, and I'll try it again, but until then, I'm sick of messing with it without success.
Happy 2013 to all!

This one has been a mystery to me, because it affects only one of my 3 macs. Reading the published response from Google clued me into a change Google made, where they report:
"As of now, it is no longer necessary to sync secondary calendars using delegates. To choose which calendars are displayed, visit https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect ".
So, they changed how they manage shared calendars, which iCal treats as 'delegates'.
On a hunch, I went into the link above, and selected ALL of the calendars listed. Immediately iCal began syncing, and all the calendars appeared. I then simply deselected the calendars I did not wish to display via the 'Calendar' button on the main iCal view (top left).
No more 404 for me now. Good luck.
