Hello Enrico. I recognize this error, and it is not a bug but a user mistake. Please continue to use this thread for help, but I'm converting this to a question to clean up the bug list.

The Software Center is complaining that there is an error in the list of software sources in /etc/apt/sources.list. Please open the file (run "gedit /etc/apt/sources.list" without quotes) and paste the first few lines of the file here.

PS - I see from your profile on Launchpad you just joined now to report this. Good spirit. :D

Thank you for your time thus far on my behalf.
I opened the terminal and entered gedit/etc/apt/sources.list and received the following: bash: gedit/etc/apt/sources.list: No such file or directory.

Please advise as to further steps I can take to resolve this issue.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your help.

can you run:

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/n-muench-vlc-lucid.list

what is output?

Thanks

actually we'll do it the smart way:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/n-muench-vlc-lucid.list; sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome-media-player-development/development; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade

Done. No more issues

Please be advised that the Update Manager isn't working either.

Message: Could not initialize the package information

'E: Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/n-muench-vlc-lucid.list, E: The list of sources could not be read.

Yes the command I gave will delete the bad file and add the repo properly

actionparsnip Thank you. The Ubuntu Software Center and Update Manager are both up and running.

Problem solved.

My sincere thanks to you and Alexander Lancey for your efforts on my behalf.

Good to know you guys are here, an I'm glad I decided to move to Ubuntu.
