problem in line 57

Asked by ahmed_843


This is my first time using Ubuntu 7.10

when i open (update manager) or (synaptic package manager) display this message:-


E: Malformed line 57 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

I hope someone could help me fixing this problem
