SOLVED: Software manager not running

Post by gnappi » Wed Jun 20, 2018 2:41 am

Software manager stopped after trying to get wine working. Attempting to get wine up for an old win32 app (paint shop pro 4) I ran from suggestion on this site:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-vuilds/Release.key
sudo apt-get add Release.key
sudo apt-add--repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial main'

After mintinstall stopped running mintinstall message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintinstall/mintinstall.py", line 2023, in <module>
app = Application()
File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintinstall/mintinstall.py", line 59, in wrapper
res = func(*arg)
File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintinstall/mintinstall.py", line 584, in __init__
self.load_cache()

self.open(progress)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/apt/cache.py", line 164, in open
self._cache = apt_pkg.Cache(progress)
SystemError: E:Malformed entry 3 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list (Component), E:The list of sources could not be read.

in sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list

deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial main
deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial main
deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/xenial main
deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial main

Is there an entry missing?

Code: Select all

gksudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list
and delete second, third and fourth line, leave only the First line, then run an update

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
And retry, if you have other errors post It here.
Post also this

Code: Select all

cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list

Thanks, that worked. I had a feeling there was either too much or not enough in that file!

Thx again!
