PureOS on Librem 15 ver. 3 does not update upgrade. I tried various solutions and update / upgrade commands and keep getting: malformed entry 4 in list file /ect/apt/sources.list (component).
So give us the content of the
I have no clue how to do that. I could not find anything like it by searching Files nor could I find it by typing /ect/apt/sources.list (component) in the Tilix application.
Open Tilix and type:
Watch for typos, for example you wrote:
it is not /ect/apt/sources.list, it is: /etc/apt/sources.list
jsbic@L15:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list ## See sources.list(5) for more information, especialy # Remember that you can only use http, ftp or file URIs deb http://repo.puri.sm/pureos/ green main deb http://repo.puri.sm/pureos/green main deb-src http://repo.puri.sm/pureos/green main # CDROMs are managed through the apt-cdrom tool.
deb http://repo.puri.sm/pureos/green main should have a
space after the last
/ so it should look like this
deb http://repo.puri.sm/pureos/ green main
Now to edit that, do
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
OK, beFree I edited and saved … Software says Up to date!
thank you! that apparently was the problem… I am now in the midst of updating and upgrading the Librem 15!
Also, use “https” instead of “http”.
to use https… do I re edit the sources.list and just add the “s” to the http in the lines there?
Yes. Also remove duplicate deb lines (you have
deb http://repo.puri.sm/pureos/ green main twice, unless you already removed one of them).
OK, sir… I will do that! thanks again.
