    someone please help me out

    I by mistake updated my 8.04 with some feisty mediubuntu repos

    Now when I go to synaptics package manager i get the following error

    E: Type '<!DOCTYPE' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.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.

    please someone help me out

    lets just take a look at the file and edit manually. Run all the following commands in terminal.

    1. Backup the file in case we really screw up:
    Code:
    sudp cp /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list.bak
    2. Post the contents of the file to the forum:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
    Then copy out of gedit and into the terminal so we can help you find the errors.

    Also a title of "someone please help me out" is very useless. Next time make it something more like: "E: Type '<!DOCTYPE' is not known"
