    Updater error about virtualbox.

    Ubuntu 12.04
    gnome environment.

    In terminal I downloaded virtualbox key
    sudo apt-key add oracle_vbox.asc
    But did not finish the installation of virtualbox.
    Virtualbox 4.1.12_ubuntur77245.
    was already installed, using software centre.

    When running update manager I now get this error message:W:Failed to fetch http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/
    debian/dists/precise/InRelease Unable to find expected entry
    'contrib/source/Sources' inRelease file (Wrong sources.list
    entry or malformed file)
    ,E:some index files failed to download. They have been ignored,
    or old ones used instead.

    How can I end the error messages?

    Thank you.

    Uncheck "source code" in Software Sources.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Location: software centre -> edit -> software sources -> other software.
    http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian precise contrib
    http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian precise contrib (Source Code)

    Are these 2 those who should be unchecked?

    No, just uncheck "(Source Code)" as I noted above.

    Location software centre -> edit -> software sources -> ubuntu software

    The source code box was never checked.

    But the error messages remains.

    Suggestions?
    Thanks.
