    It appears that you have source list issues - it would have been easier to move the System error box

    No matter - please make sure software centre or synaptic are closed, open a terminal with Ctrl Alt T then run

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    It will ask for password - when you type it - it will not appear, this is normal.

    Once apt-get has run please copy and paste the WHOLE output to a new post

    Please use code tags - if you are using New Reply button - highlight text and use the # button in the text box header.

    If using Quick Reply then [code] at the beginning and [/code] at the end.

    Code:
    E: Malformed line 6 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
    E: The list of sources could not be read.
    Did do that correctly? I sincerely apologize, I am somewhat new. (I have ran Linux on several computers) However I have never had these kinds of issues..

    Yep that's fine

    Lines in sources.list should on ever be deb deb-source or # you've got something wrong at line 6

    Run
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    from term and paste it all here please

    Go into Software Sources and uncheck the partner repository, then try your update again. If that works, try re-enabling the partner repo and do another update.

    How do I go about doing that?

    This what I got after running: sudo apt-get update

    I also ran Update Manager and ran into the same errors as Synaptic and Ubuntu Software Center.
