E:Malformed line 62 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I am about as green as they come, I recently updated to xubuntu 12.10 from an older suite. I followed instructions I found in other postings $ cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list | grep 62 62 deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jonabeck/ppa/xubuntu main $ sudo gedit /etc/apt/source.list the source list opened and the document was blank. I'm wondering how I got here and if there is anything to do besides load a new source list. Any help is appreciated, thanks. (HowTos)
