(Resolved) Update Manager Warning Message

Post by rte638 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 4:01 pm

I recently installed Mint 19.
I also installed Crash Plan and Brother downloads for my MFC-J870DW since Simple Scan was not detected by Mint 19 automatically. I am now displaying the following messages when I use Update Manager to install recommended updates. Mint 19 appears to be functioning properly.
How do I this issue?
Thanks for your help.

Have a look at the following file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list

Remove any duplicate lines in it.

If you are in any doubt, paste the contents of the file here.

You can also open Update Manager/Edit/Software Sources And Restore to Default.
"Tune for maximum Smoke and then read the Instructions".
