    "E: Malformed line 64 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)"

    Ok--I was trying to add a ppa for the new version of Libre Office to my update manager. I must have typed it in wrong because all of a sudden my update manager crashed and my software center keeps crashing when I try to open it. I get this error message that says:

    E: Malformed line 64 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)

    What did I do to myself and how do I fix it? Help! I have Ubuntu Christian Edition 12.04

    Re: HELP! I did something to my ubuntu software center and my update manager!

    Ok I found an answer already and fixed my problem. I typed into my terminal sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list and I was able to get in and fix the problem in the command lines. I missed a space in 2 of the command lines. Where there was supposed to be a space, there was no space at all.
