Ubuntu :: Malformed Line 59 In Source List Etc/apt/sources.list?
Sep 1, 2011
There is a problem with my source list (apparently) I'm running 11.04 if that helps.When I try to use apt-get install update for example, I get: "Malformed line 59 in source list etc/apt/sources.list"The same error occurs when trying to access synaptic package manager, it tells me there is a malformed line and the list of sources cannot be read.This error prevents me from apt-getting anything, updating and i suspect it is affecting the software center too.
I tried to change the basic toolbar to cairo dock,a tutorial that i found told me to write in terminal gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.listso i write it and a window opened,i couled not find the text that told me(the tutorial i mean)so i closed the window,after that i keep taiking the same error
E: Type �sudo� is not known on line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialogue to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
now whene i got in the winehq.list the text has gone and i take this error in update manager,my software center doesn't work and my terminal whenever i type sudo commands says
E: Type �sudo� is not known on line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
When opening "Update-manager" I get this error: E:Malformed line 47 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
What I was trying to do was update my Opera web browser, when I tried, Ubuntu told me that I was attempting to download from an unauthenticated source, I checked the software sources list and Opera was in there, so I deleted it and re-added it, I must have done it wrong because after closing out and refreshing "Update-manager" it gave me the error above and closed. So now I can't update anything.
I'm having a problem updating or even running the software center. Each time I open either of them, I get an error stating "'E:Type 'ntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-wine-ppa-natty.list'" and the update manager or software center closes. This has just been happening a few days ago and I would like a fix for it. I'm using 11.04 beta 1 and my WINE version is the latest development release. Anyone know how to fix this error? I tried unchecking my WINE PPAs in sources but that don't seem to do any good.
report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message: 'E:Type 'deb' is not known on line 54 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'
I only started using it about two weeks ago now though I've had fun this morning I tried to update with update manager but I got this message: Could not initialize the package information An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message: 'E:Type 'main' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'
I have installed and uninstalled Ubuntu four times now due to various errors. Right now I am getting error messages anytime I try to use the update or package manager and I get the same message from both:
E: Malformed line 54 in source list/etc/apt/sources.list (URI parse) E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E:_cache->open () failed, please report.

In a typical sources.list in a Debian-based distro, I see a line that begins with "deb," and right below it, the same repo preceded by "deb-src." I can figure out that that means "Debian source," but what's the difference between a "deb" and a "deb-src"?
My current sources.list has almost all the deb-src lines removed; I believe I did that at some point because Synaptic was giving me error messages over there being too many entries in my sources.list, and I must have thought the deb-src lines were redundant. I assume I was wrong, eh? The deb-src lines must be there for a reason. I might not have been certain the error messages were due to having too many sources, either; maybe that was only my guess.
In my netbook /etc/apt/sources.list contains the cdrom asdeb cdrom:[Ubuntu ....]/hardy main restrictedIf I keep the iso file in /ubuntu and then want it to be refreshed during #/etc/apt/apt-get updatehow must I motify /etc/apt/sources.list
This error comes from the update manager, but I can not see duplicate entries in the software sources. Is there a program that removes duplicate sources? If not how do I find the duplicate entries.

In my sources.list all I can see is online addresses but there is another directory in my pc which has all the sofwares but I don't know how to add its address to sources.list. I need to know the format of how to add it.
I just upgraded from Debian 8.1 stable to testing and finally to unstable, looking for latest software.However, I cannot find sources for security or software updates, the only repository that works from me is
today i finished my first debian lenny install. x86 version. i ran into problem with sources.list # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.4 _Lenny_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20100131-18:53]/ lenny main deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.4 _Lenny_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20100131-18:53]/ lenny main
