I accidentally deleted /etc/apt/sources.list. Now apt-get update doesn't quite get as much good stuff as it's supposed to. Please, somebody, paste contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list so that I can copy-&-paste it back.

I'm on Kubuntu 10.10.

I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 as well, this comes from my sources.list. You should change nl.archive.ubuntu.com to your local mirror.

If you have a LiveCD / LiveUSB, you can start Kubuntu from it in Live mode and copy the file over. Just another safe option. –  Lekensteyn Mar 6 '11 at 20:21
    
Thanks, this perfectly helped :) –  Septagram Mar 9 '11 at 4:11

Ubuntu Sources List Generator

To use the Ubuntu Sources List Generator, all you have to do is select the applications for which you want to generate a sources.list, then click the "Generate" button at the bottom, then open your sources.list file with admin rights:

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and paste the generated repositories, then do:

sudo apt-get update
