when i do "sudo apt-get update" following output is generated at the end:-

N: Ignoring file 'google.list’' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension

Any solution for this????

sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list’ /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list

I thinks this should work as the file currently has the name google.list’, but it needs to end in *.list to work - the above command should move/rename it to a file with the appropriate extension.
