hi, i'm new here i got ubuntu this week, and i seem to have a problem with sources.list, i have this error:

E: Type ‘hardy’ is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/

this happened after i typed into the terminal:

sudo apt-get update


i have no idea what is wrong with my installation but i think that my sources.list is corrupt, is there a way to fix this error?

kindest regards
gv

Hi

Type in terminal
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.listto check your source list.

You can see default source list from this post
