    Have you tried editing sources.list and commenting out the duplicate entry? sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list and place a # in front of the duplicate entry, then save. – Louis Matthijssen Apr 27 '14 at 11:16

    Also watch out for entries under individual files @ /etc/apt/sources.list.d – Antony Dec 8 '15 at 14:22
