    but they are hashed out. So, should I uncomment them? I am feeling really stupid [concerning Ubuntu and Linux in general] at the moment, and please forgive me missing obvious things.

    Thanks for all your patience and help!!!
    No,leave them with the # so they don't cause further problems.Or delete them from the sources.list file.

    W: Duplicate sources.list entry quantal/partner i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.canonical.com_ubuntu_dists_quantal_partner _binary-i386_Packages)
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
    I think that problem is caused by the [distro] line being in sources.list and has left an incorrect file in your .list files.

    To correct the error,open a terminal and run
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    to delete the .list files and then run
    sudo apt-get update
    to reload the .list files.

    Good Luck
