How do I report a bug?

I get following error while issuing the command sudo apt-get update

Reading package lists... Done
W: Duplicate sources.list entry precise/partner i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.canonical.com_ubuntu_dists_precise_partner_binary-i386_Packages)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

I have seen several such post on this site like:

I do get the solution for this problem i.e. to remove the duplicate entry, but my question is why to display the message as

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

when this error has occurred on running the same command. Doesn't anyone see this as redundant or misleading?

I want to know where to record such things so that they get fixed. Is there any issue tracking system for ubuntu, where I can add this as a ticket.


I had heard that is now the official site for ubuntu support. Is this correct?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Seems worthy of a bug report to me, too. – John S Gruber Aug 25 '12 at 21:29
@mtk See discussions on meta.askuntu for info re. 'officialness' of askubuntu. It is part of the official ecosystem, but community run. – belacqua Aug 25 '12 at 22:46

Please see How do I report a bug?. AskUbuntu is but one way to find support for running Ubuntu. See this web page.
