'E:Type "is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list

Asked by Kath OConnell

I am receiving the above error message when I try to run update manager. Update Manager is no longer appearing in my side bar and all I am getting is a red circle with white line across it along the top of my screen and when I click on this and select show updates this is the message I get. I have tried reinstalling update manager and nothing is working. Every attempt to reinstall it says it cannot be downloaded. I also cannot get Software Center to open either. Help I really do not know what to do now.
