    Problems with updater manager

    Hello everybody,

    I have Ubuntu 12.10 in my laptop. A few days ago, I got the following message:

    "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:Malformed line 56 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list(dist parse)"

    Since then I have not been able to install new software in my laptop.

    Any tip on how to solve this problem is greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    Hello and welcome to the forums.

    Can we have a look at your /etc/apt/sources.list file? Something is wrong on line 56.

    Just incase your wondering how to do that

    Open a terminal and enter:

    Code:
    cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list
    And post the output of that command using code tags.
