This website?

If so, the whole method described is unwieldy.  It refers to
System>Administration>Software Sources
when that step can be completed right from
System>Administration>Update Manager
and the, "Settings," button.

Yep, description bug on the site, I'd say.

BTW, "joe sixpack?"  Isn't that a little insulting?  (that is, if, by
sixpack, one refers to alcoholic beverages (not everybody drinks
alcohol)) And, if it refers to a strong abdomen, does it really
represent the great untutored mass of humanity? I think, "no."

Maybe, "Joe Average," or, "Joe Normal," or, "Joe regular," might be
better and not tend to identify /you/, the 'speaker,' as a (US) Tea
Party member.
(which identification would, in itself, be off-putting for many USians,
not to mention rest-of-the-worlders)
