I have a problem after trying to install Wine using a method posted by WineHQ, which caused corruption.
I tried running suggestions made elsewhere by @drpjkurian but still end with errors.
I'm using 21.04 via PosOS and KDE cosmic
Here is the terminal commands I used and the err messages that followed.
$ sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/lists/ $ sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/apt/lists/partial $ sudo apt-get update
E: Malformed entry 1 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/archive_uri-https_dl_winehq_org_wine-builds_ubuntu_hirsute-hirsute.list (Component)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
As a result I can't run and GUI package managers like Discover or Muon.
The problem started when I tried following WineHQ's instructions for installing Wine via Terminal commands. Here is the original enteries:

Here is the contents of /etc/apt (which shows duplicate sources.list files with a ~ added. Maybe this means duplicate or unsaved files.

I have tried registering with WineHQ's forum but can't answer their anti-spam questions during registration. Because of this I'm trying my luck here.
Thanks in advance if anyone has a solution.
