    [solved] Installing JRE on Ubuntu 10.04

    I am very new to Ubuntu. I am trying to install JRE on Ubuntu 10.04.

    I add the partner repository using the following command:

    sudo add-apt-repository “deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner”

    However when I run:

    sudo apt-get update

    I get the following error:

    E: Malformed line 54 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)

    Can someone please tell me what's going wrong? It'll be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!

    Remove that repository and instead add:
    deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu lucid partner

    You can do this in the GUI, if you prefer: System > Administration > Software Sources.

    I am not an expert on this but perhaps you can give us more details by posting your sources.list

    Press Alt+F2 (Run Application), type:
    Code:
    gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    and press ENTER, then copy the contest of the sources.list file here. Hopefully then someone will be able to spot out the cause of the problem.

    That will, however, leave you with an old Java update with some security issues. Java 6 is now up to Update 31.

    I'm on my cell phone on a train, so I can't give you the link. However, if you google the following terms you will find an excellent, well-explained tutorial for installing Update 31:

    I suggest you try This. You need the latest version to help keep your computer protected.
