Hi all
I am a green Ubunto user and have been playing,......oh dear! Can anyone help me with this message?

Could not initialise the package information

An unresolvable problem occurred while initialising the package information.

Please report this bug for the 'update-manager' package and try to include the following error message:

'E:Type n is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-mozilla-daily-ppa-karmic.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'

Any help gratefully accepted.

Regards, Hoohaa

Edit your sources to comment out the offending line.

Open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and copy/paste the following...

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-mozilla-daily-ppa-karmic.list

Put two "##" at the front of the line one. Save and try again.
