    Re: Error trying to edit sources.list

    It sounds like you downloaded a raw web page instead of a plaintext version of the medibuntu.list file - what were you doing right before this happened?

    My understanding is that the medibuntu project has been discontinued btw

    Moved to own thread.

    @ogburnpaul, your problem is somewhat different from the thread you posted to. It's better to start your own threads.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.

    As steeldriver said, the medibuntu repo is no more.
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu*
    
    sudo apt-get update
