View Full Version : [all variants] Problems with Update Manager

April 27th, 2011, 12:35 AM
Hello there, I am very new to Ubuntu, but everyday I like it more and more!
I'd like to ask a question concerning my installation. It is Macbuntu 10.10.
I installed VirtualBox to then install WinXp for a program that I don't find a replacement.
After installation I have this error in the update manager

Could not initialize the package information

An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

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

'E:Type 'usage:' is not known on line 60 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list'

I will be very thankful for any help you can provide me.

Hi, welcome to the fora.

For Ubuntu, bugs are reported in Launchpad:

It would be great if you could report it.

Might as well have a look at your sources file as well. From the terminal post the output of

cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Kind regards
