You can do one of two things here - either edit the file manually -
lines in there should have either deb, deb-src or # at the beginning -
nothing else. It's likely that the whole thing is wrong.
The other option is to remove that file and redo the procedure to add
medibuntu - either run nautilus as root - gksudo nautilus
and remove the file from there or do it from the command line - sudo rm
Then re acquire the medibuntu repos using the command here -
