Hi Collin,

oops, missed the deb again. :-(  ;-)  Thank you for correcting. :-) :-)

Attached the corrected one for completeness. ;-)

base-installer (1.158ubuntu3) already contains the corrected. Obviously
you have also corrected the indentation matching the lines above in
1.158ubuntu3. :-)

As far as I can see 1.158ubuntu3 is only availabe for Yakkety Yak (active development) at the moment, hope it will get into Xenial Xerus as a bugfix within the next weeks also. ;-) 

Most people affected by this would be LTS users.

Thank you. :-)

Kind regards,

  invalid sources.list generated from reading apt-

Status in base-installer package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  it looks like configure_apt from library.sh will add the contents of apt-setup/local0/repository verbatim to the sources file. This works only if the repository is prefixed with "deb ", which for apt-setup is optional. Not using a repository prefixed with "deb" will result in an invalid sources.list file.
