This question already has an answer here:

I recently installed ChrUbuntu onto my Acer C7 Chromebook. I tried running the update manager from the terminal and I keep getting the same message

E: Malformed line 60 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
E: The list of sources could not be read.

Someone help me, I'm so new to Ubuntu.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • This means that there's something wrong with your sources.list file at line 60. In a terminal, do gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list, copy the contents of the file, paste it in paste.ubuntu.com, click "Paste!", and give us the URL of that page. – Alaa Ali Jul 18 '13 at 5:20

I sugest you to generate here a new sources.list file and replace with your /etc/apt/sources.list that obviously have something wrong inside ("The list of sources could not be read").

See here how to replace sources.list with the new one.
