I just upgraded from 7.10 to hardy.

I can't upgrade because of this error

Please tell me what line 67 is or any advice

I can do a little code. Thanks.

Randy, I'm not sure what line it's referring to, as there are only 57 lines in the file as depicted in the screenshot. If that's the entirety of the file, then try commenting out that last line.

You have to get rid of all third parties in your sources.list. Then try again.

I'll try both in that order.

Thanks guys

you can also just comment out line 67 by using the pound sign (#).
then run sudo apt-get update
to check for errors

without reading the lessons
Now it works cause i got rid of them
thanks a lot!

Yeah--thanks i'll do that
it's good to know otherwise i'd keep
posting images.

I SOLVED THE PROBLEM i had by removing
third-party sources!!---Thanks again....

I put in the third- party sources too soon I think.

I took them out and now I can update....

THanks a lot.....now i'll divorce Windows for good..!
