Hi,
When trying to run an apt-get command, I get the following error:
E: Malformed line 59 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
E: The list of sources could not be read.


Can anyone please help me? This is how my /etc/apt/sources.list looks like:

# deb cdrom:[Kubuntu 12.04 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release i386 (20120423)]/ precise main restricted

# See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
# newer versions of the distribution.
deb http://tn.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted
deb-src http://tn.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise restricted main multiverse universe #Added by software-properties

## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
## distribution.

hi,
at first glance I don't see a problem with your /etc/apt/sources.list file. in fact the error message says the error is found in line 59 and I only count 54 lines in your sources list.
Here are a couple things you can try.


sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get update

see if they give you the same message. post any different error you get

deb http://archive.canonical.com/precise partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/precise partner
Above portion is repeated.

Also IMHO, you should comment out 'deb-src' lines unless you really need them.

Thank you all, well it seems that the problem was with the two last lines as neo_1in just said. I commented those lines out and everything is now alright :)
