I have trouble with three of my PPAs. I stupidly installed some PPAs in order to install the newest version of Wine, not really knowing what I was doing and there is now a typo in some of them (I deleted a space character because I thought it wasn't supposed to be there). Now I can't open the software manager or install PPA purge. Using Mint 20.1.
Line 5 (and the following) in
deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/groovy main deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/focal main deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/bionic main
What I get in the terminal when I try installing ppa purge or when trying to open synaptic is:
E: Malformed entry 5 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list (Component) E: The list of sources could not be read. E: Malformed entry 5 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list (Component) E: The list of sources could not be read.
Somehow I am supposed to be able to install PPA purge "manually". But I don't want to break anything more than I already have :) So I am asking for HELP! Please! :)
UPDATE: I managed to correct the files, adding a space where it belongs. That allowed me to install PPA purge and open the software center again, yay!
Now I want to get rid of the PPAs: I understood using purge is best. but when I insert
sudo ppa-purge ppa:wine-builds
it doesn't work. Is that the correct PPA name?
