    Re: Need help, I'm a new user of Linux

    You have multiple identical entries in /etc/apt/sources.list. Just remove the duplicates. The error message even tells you the offending line numbers. Looks like removing lines 53 and 54 should do the trick. After you make the edits run "sudo apt update" to see if the problem has been resolved. Make a backup of the sources.list file first just in case.

    This file can only be edited by the "root," or administrative, user. In Ubuntu, that means using sudo to run a command. Open a terminal, then type
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    You'll be prompted to enter your password. Nano has a useful menu of commands at the bottom of the screen.

    And you just might like nano, as well. I certainly do.
