E: Type 'nchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-wine-ppa-maverick.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.

The above is the console output when i type sudo apt-get update

Update manager throws the same error so now I can't install or update software :(:(:( Help me! :confused:

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-wine-ppa-maverick.list Delete the text, and add

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu maverick main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu maverick main

Save and exit, retry
sudo apt-get update
