I enter:

$ sudo apt-get update

but Google-Chrome InRelease doesn't run!

$ sudo apt-get update
Hit:1 http://opensource.xtdv.net/ubuntu xenial InRelease
Hit:2 http://opensource.xtdv.net/ubuntu xenial-updates InRelease               
Hit:3 http://opensource.xtdv.net/ubuntu xenial-backports InRelease

After 3 minutes, I see:

$ sudo apt-get update

Reading package lists... Done 

The /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chrome-remote-desktop.list file has this content:

### THIS FILE IS AUTOMATICALLY CONFIGURED ###
# You may comment out this entry, but any other modifications may be lost.
deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

Can't I just remove Hit 5 in the update list? I have tried it, but I only can remove both, 5 and 6!

To make the Google Chrome update process working correctly, you will have to re-configure the Google software sources. To achieve this, open a terminal and execute the following commands :

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chrome-remote-desktop.list
echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list  
wget -q -O - https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -  
sudo apt update  
sudo apt upgrade  

In case you still have problems with the update process, check the /etc/apt/sources.list file and remove any Google entry that may exist by executing sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.
