    Wink [Solved] Virtual Box Reporitory Error!

    Hello there,

    I am getting virtual-box repository download error as given below:

    Code:
    Failed to fetch http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/dists/maverick/Release  Unable to find expected entry  non-free/source/Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)
    Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    Repository:
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian marverick non-free

    Re: Virtual Box Reporitory Error!

    as this message says: it cant find "Sources" (because it has been installed by error, it really dont exist)

    so, open synaptic repo tab (third party) and remove the second line about virtualbox: the one ending with "sources"

    then update again
