View Full Version : [ubuntu] update manager crash

July 8th, 2008, 04:03 AM
Could not initialize the package information

A 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 77 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'

I was trying to install zsnes yesterday from terminal using instructions from some random site, and something in my gut tells me that's the problem. May I please get some advice on how to fix this? I'm actively learning about the usage of linux, but I'm still very inexperienced when it comes to troubleshooting it.

Try to post your sources.list file:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
