Re: ubuntu-users Digest, Vol 168, Issue 3

Ubuntu mailing list
Hi Colin,

Thanks. i tried it but sudo apt clean didn't work, generated this output:

E: Malformed entry 60 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list (Component)
E: The list of sources could not be read.

Not sure what my next move is . . . . Thanks for the response.

best,

david
