    'E:Malformed line 59 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (URI parse)

    Well I get a update notification and then this error appeared. So I go to the file and this is my 59 line (I think)

    deb index of / lucid partner

    But heres my sorce.list file. I have read some threads, but I don't find what they say is the error.

    Ubuntu 12.04 in a Alienware M17 not running in dual boot.

    Thanks

    It would make it easier if you would include line numbers in the future.

    Code:
    cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb index of / lucid partner
    deb-src index of / lucid partner

    Both of these need to be removed.

    My bad, I feel kind of noob, I changed permissions to rw and then tried to edit it, but I got a error saying that gedit can't make a backup so I click save anyway, but its not getting saved?? what should I do?

    Thanks

    oo yea, my bad.

    Code:
    $ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    then I deleted the last two sentences:

    deb index of / lucid partner
    deb-src index of / lucid partner

    save it and reboot, just in case. Now working normally again.
