No, *please don't* do a re-install.  This isn't MS Windows here, you don't
need to do a re-install when two minutes of the *right kind* of help will
instantly fix it!  (And we're all eager to assist).

In this case we know _exactly_ where the error is, it is in the file
'/etc/apt/sources.list'.  You can find this file with your file-manager, or
Text Editor and view it.  We know that error is on line thirty in this file.

The most useful thing you can do is to attach the 'sources.list' file to
your email reply and we'll tell you exactly how to fix it.
