This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It says line 54 is broken, So you have to repair that line. Open Teminal and run gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list Find above line, you can use Ctrl+F Replace the line with following

deb quantal partner

save and quit the editor. Run sudo apt-get update Tell us how it worked out. cheers..!
