Can't figure out where my problem is.

I tried to post my sources list but apparently Ubuntu won't let a new user post more then two hyperlinks so yea any suggestions on how to post that.

The Update manager is telling you what's wrong, open the sources file with gedit and look for the error. – Uri Herrera Feb 16 '12 at 1:59

you will need to edit your sources.list

open a terminal and make a copy of the sources.list

sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup

now edit the file

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

move to line 59 and compare that line with the others. SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE a basic line will appear as this example: deb-src natty-security main restricted

If you are unsure of the correction that needs to be performed then you may comment that line out using "#" it would then appear as this:

#deb-src natty-security main restricted

once the line is edited you can save and resume the update

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

please post back any errors or use pastebin and report
