  'E:Type "is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list

Status in “apt” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I am receiving the above error message when I try to run update
  manager.  Update Manager is no longer appearing in my side bar and all
  I am getting is a red circle with white line across it along the top
  of my screen and when I click on this and select show updates this is
  the message I get.  I have tried reinstalling update manager and
  nothing is working.  Every attempt to reinstall it says it cannot be
  downloaded.  I also cannot get Software Center to open either.  Help I
  really do not know what to do now.
