I found this site where it says all the things I need to do and the commands in Terminal and Everything. So Now I need to type in sudo apt-get update. I get this error:

tomi@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update
N: Ignoring file 'getdeb.list.bck' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension
E: Type '' is not known on line 3 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/libdvdcss.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.

Move getdeb.list.bck file to another location.

sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list.bck ~/Desktop

And then remove '' from the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/libdvdcss.list in the line 3.

You can do this through sudo nautilus command. Finally run sudo apt-get update command to update all repositories .
