Duplicate sources.list entry http://packages.linuxmint.com/ isadora/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/packages.linuxmint.com_dists_isadora_main_binary-amd64_Packages)

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

This is a duplicate line, just remove it in Software Sources or since you may have it installed, Ubuntu Tweak.

Not sure how to correct this one, that extra line is a hold over from an experiment i tried to perform when i was using Mint 13 Maya, i tried to import a repository in order to get a splash screen and yes using Ubuntu Tweak, somehow that line remained even though I'm using Mint 9 Isadora, now that line doesn't exist in Software Resources but it does in Ubuntu Tweak, and i would gladly delete it but each time i try it keeps coming back, and that after saving the changes more than a few times.. All of this happened over Mint 13 and my attempt to get one "splash screen".. ah well, back to the drawing board this may take some time.. :wink:

Thanks for the help..

You can use your most familiar editor, open the file /etc/apt/sources.list
Locate that line.
Add a # in front. Like this below
#deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ isadora main
Save.

Ah! The verdicts in guys and the combination goes to Ubuntu Tweaks using this line..

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ isadora main

with a # in front of it like so

#deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ isadora main

deleted that line saved it and that was that, it was my fault for not geting it sooner i wasn't saving it correctly.. :oops:

Go to your first post and edit it, adding [SOLVED] to the subject line.

That way you can see it as solved in the topic listing.
