How do I fix “malformed line” errors in sources.list?

I seem to be running into some difficulties with the acquisition of the latest libreoffice deb pkg.

When I type

sudo apt-get update

I get

E: Malformed line 60 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist) E: The list of sources could not be read.

I don't understand of that means that I did something wrong or if there is a problem at tuxfamily.

Any help is, as always, greatly appreciated.

Full contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.

Post your output of cat /etc/apt/sources.list –  karthick87 Dec 15 '10 at 13:23
    
karthick87 -the actual output was over the posting limit by some 2300 characters. This is the last line (which I thought might be helpful). <deb hxxp://download.tuxfamily.org/gericom/libreoffice/> –  beachbuddah Dec 15 '10 at 15:40
    
@Beachbuddah Throw it up on pastebin.ubuntu.com that'll be easier. –  Jorge Castro Dec 15 '10 at 17:19

I removed and re-added the repository and when I did, I fixed an earlier problem (I was temporarily blocked from updating my system) but got a new message: "W: Failed to fetch download.tuxfamily.org/gericom/libreoffice/Release Unable to find expected entry Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)". While I was in the software sources GUI, I checked and the key was there but either I added the repo incorrectly (copied n pasted) or the target is missing. –  beachbuddah Dec 15 '10 at 22:21
    
@Beachbuddah follow @Jorge Castro's answer. –  RolandiXor Jan 14 '11 at 17:58

You should probably just install LO from the PPA: Is there a LibreOffice PPA?
