When I open the synaptic manager, this error shows up:

E: Type '<!DOCTYPE' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
E: Couldn't read list of package sources

I think Ive screwed up something a few days ago when adding some repo sites. Thanks.

Maybe if you delete the "medibuntu.list" file the problem might go away. You can do it using the terminal by
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list And then trying adding the repositories again. What way did you follow to add the repositories?

Thanks Jualin. Ive already resolved the problem. I followed one of the old posts. Yup, I removed the medibuntu.list. Apparently that doesnt work anymore. I saw this site and copy and pasted some commands, it was a tutorial on how to enable and add repositories. Thanks again!
