    Could not initialise the package information

    An unresolvable problem occurred while initialising the package information.

    Please report this bug for the 'update-manager' package and try to include the following error message:

    'E:Type ‘n’ is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plaxx-random-fixes-lucid.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'

    Seems to me as if something is wrong in your /etc/apt/sources.list. It could help if you post the content of the file.

    'E:Type ‘n’ is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plaxx-random-fixes-lucid.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'
    There is an error in a ppa list.

    You can edit the file by hand if you know what it should be.

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plaxx-random-fixes-lucid.list
    If not where did you get the ppa from?

    It says...


    # deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/plaxx/random-fixes/ubuntu maverick main
    n

    ... I guess it's the n on the second line that is loose, I've deleted it and it's all fine. Thank you!!

    Looks like the PPA is disabled anyway unless there are other lines.
