Forgive me if I'm being dim, but I thought he said he was doing a fresh
install. If so, I don't think that medibuntu or google repos would be
there. The Karl syndrome ...again. He had restored a bunch of cruft.

"Ok I figured out Alan had rightly pointed I was restoring the backup
from a previous partition and in that /etc/apt file the previous files
were the ones which were of mavercik in my old experiment hence I feel
this over wrote the headers of lucid and I faced this problem.
I have just formatted my hard disk by the time of writing this message
on list." 

That was not the truth. Hence, your present problems. It's sad because
you make your own problems, and it's abusive to hide the facts when
asking for assistance. It's even sadder when one has to dumpster-dive
into the trash folder to check out your previous statements. That is
intellectually abusive behavior towards the group. Maybe you should just
stick with Windows. It won't let you do blow it up. Or, maybe they have
quit responding to your pleas for assistance? Ric
