There is a space between ubuntu/ and maverick in your URL, which is wrong.

Type this command into a terminal window to edit your sources.list file and remove the offending space:


gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list &

and then run the commands I gave earlier to update your package information and try installing lsb-core again.

EDIT - ignore that (my mistake), please post the content of /etc/apt/sources.list so I can see what you have.

sorry for only coming back now but things have been a bit hectic.Thanks for your help.
If I type /etc/apt/sources.list in root or normal terminal it says permission is denied.Am I doing it incorrectly? Just to give you a bit of background,everything revolves around the installation of googleearth which I use in my line of business.I have now for three years and four complete system installations been trying to get it going with no luck.
Thanks.
