    Re: how to remove and reinstall apt package manager

    I do not think that apt can be removed so that it can be reinstalled. Ubuntu is built on the Debian Linux distribution and so it has inherited the Debian package management method. Please read about it.

    https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/d...gtools.en.html

    If you tell us about the problems you are experiencing along with information about the version of Ubuntu that you are using and information about your hardware, someone on this forum might suggest what to do to fix the problems.

    What issues are you actually having? Removing an application then reinstalling it removes files, then puts the same files in the same place.

    E: Malformed line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grapejuice.list (type)
    E: The list of sources could not be read.

    Ok

    1. Reinstalling apt won't fix that.... at all
    2. If you give the output of
    Code:
    cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grapejuice.list
    We can advise and get the config file straightened which will solve the problem you are having

    OK then the file is worthless. You can run
    Code:
     
    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grapejuice.list
    sudo apt update
    This should now be smooth
