    E: Malformed line 57 source list

    Hey guys. I'm trying to $ sudo apt-get update but get this error.

    E: Malformed line 57 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (URI parse)
    E: The list of sources could not be read.

    I tried to search on Google but couldn't really find a solution for line 57, only some of the other lines.

    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    correct line 57 and other offending lines if necessary

    should basically read

    deb http://whatever.com/ubuntu precise main
