Hi. I'm new to Ubuntu. My first one is 10.10 so imagine the experience that I have with it. Anyway, the problem is that after visiting many websites, I changed the sources.list a number of times, so now I started to have weird errors when I'm trying to update. Can you please give me a source list that is good and complete? Or, where can I get one?

Sorry about the possibly stupid question that I made, but screwing it up is a way to learn :D

Thanks

Load up System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager and go into Settings > Repositories > Other Software tab, then deselect the troublesome lines or do it by editing your sources.list using this command


gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and place a # sign in front of the troublesome lines.

It is probably easier and safer to so it the first way.

Open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and run
sudo apt-get update and post the output to the forum.Your screenshot doesn't show the whole error message.

You seem to have some PPA's added to your sources.list which are causing problems.

For a new sources.list go Here (http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/)

Good Luck
