It sounds like there's a typo somewhere. Please post the relevant section from '/etc/apt/sources.list' so we can look it over.

Truthfully though, Automatix2 isn't the best thing to put on your system. Which particular codecs/applications are you trying to install that you want/need Automatix for?

If i'm not mistaken Automatix is no longer available, i think there was an article on the softpedia website about it and their website go here http://www.getautomatix.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=2424

Even if you can or could get Automatix your next upgrade will probably be horrible. In spite of the quick resources that it provided you couldn't remove everything to upgrade due to there being no record of installs of packages which can cause an upgrade to fail.

i would stay away from it. i got it . thought--- wow, this sure makes things easy.

then i ran my weekly scan, found a root kit. i only use my box for email

and a little searching. wiped the drive and reinstalled.

never did get automatrix again and my scans

have been clean since.

Now I can't install updates cuz of this stupid Automatix.... as i told u i get a error while installing it, that's the reason my Ubuntu is not able read the update pakages!!!!!!! it says

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 '“deb' is not known on line 58 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'

Step 1
Close the package manager.

Step 2
Open a terminal (http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/terminal)

Step 3
Paste these commands in the terminal:
sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.automatix
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list The second command should open an empty text file.

Step 4
In the empty text file, paste in this text:
## Uncomment the following two lines to fetch updated software from the network
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy main restricted
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy main restricted

## Uncomment the following two lines to fetch major bug fix updates produced
## after the final release of the distribution.
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-updates main restricted

deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ hardy free non-free Then save and close the file.

Then follow these instructions to install what you probably wanted Automatix for in the first place:
