I'm a new user of Ubuntu 13.10. I recently tried to resolve a Skype installation issue and added some PPA involving binary-1386. Every time I run
sudo apt-get update, I get the following error:
W: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/saucy/Release Unable to find expected entry 'restricted/binary-1386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file) W: Failed to fetch http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/saucy/Release Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-1386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file) ... ... E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
I have spent the last two hours trying to resolve this issue, and made changes to my
sources.list file by resetting to.the default saucy settings, but these errors are still occuring. I've also unchecked everything in Software and Updates section, but this still seems to appear. The error messages seem to be related to the
'binary-1386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file) issue as shown above.
cat /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*. Do not use comments.
