There is normally no content in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
Save the file elsewhere and then delete it in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Thanks Husse.

I tryed to remove my alternate post, and i guess i do not know how to delete a post.

anyway, thank you so much. this forum is friggin great. I went into the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and there was a file
in there, i dunno how it got there, but i deleted it and now everything works fine.

once again thanks.

Also i was wondering. When i visit i site and it tells me to edit my sources page. and add their source to it. what is
the proper way of adding sources.

Thanks and i hope to hear from you soon.

Be very careful when you add repositories to sources.list
Do it only for reputable sites and comment them (##) out when you're done
It can be done from Synaptic or simply by editing manually - sudo your text editor and edit
