Today I made a mistake when I was installing google chrome web browser.I got a error said ” Malformed line 62 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)” when executed sudo apt-get update command in terminal.Here is how I fixed it.
The error message “Malformed line 62 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list” means something wrong of the line 62 in file source.list.
Use the following command in terminal :
cat -n /etc/apt/source.list | grep 62
You will see the content of the line like this:
wraith@wraith-desktop:~$ cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list | grep 62 62 deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty
Run following command ,then find out the above and make a change.I lost main at end of the line and I just add it.
sudo gedit /etc/apt/source.list
If you’ve no idea with it,just delete it.Close and save the file and done.
