    Cannot open software centre

    Morning guys,
    I tried to install itunes on my computer, after which I found I could not open the software centre.
    If any one can help I would be most greatfull.
    The error code shown when opening the pacgae mager is listed below.

    E: Type '<!DOCTYPE' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
    E: The list of sources could not be read.
    Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.
    E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

    Thank you,
    Michael.

    Re: Cannot open software centre

    AFAIK iTunes sucks
    There is no Linux application of it and running it is done via Wine, and IIRC only an odd version or so will work, and then only limited/poor.

    If I were you I'd start planning to dump all your Vendor Lock in stuff and free yourself from the burden.

    What I mean is you tied yourself in to Apple
    I don't have any Apple products on principle. Dump meant, change to a more open device.
    Some i devices (ipod iphone etc..) might work ie; managing music on your device, using rhythmbox
    My guess is also that there is no Ubuntu One/Music app for your Apple device either

    Re: Cannot open software centre

    can we get this back ontopic and deal with the issue at hand first or they'll not be installing anything - thanks

    Open a terminal - paste this command in and post the WHOLE output back so we can check you've only got the one error in it.

    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list

    Re: Cannot open software centre

    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.

    Ok - so yea - that is rather broken.

    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list && sudo apt-get update
    That will remove the bad file and update apt again.

    At that point you'll be able to use software centre again.

    If you want to use the playonlinux repos then you need to redo the installing of it again.

    Where did you get the information from to add it last time - and what version Ubuntu are you using?

    As far as your itunes issue goes - some manage for a short while, others don't. I never got into that situation, much like carl4296. Can't help you with that.

    This is the result of an itunes search on *buntu specific sources - http://bit.ly/1hbpy7D
