I presume you're using Ubuntu 16.04, since that was the OS you mentioned in your other thread.
 

8 deb-src http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial main restricted

I have set up the server to d/l from uk Is this correct please.

 

Yes, gb.archive.ubuntu.com is the UK repo server.
 

configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list

 

You are getting this error because you have some repos listed more than once. You will need to edit your sources.list so that each repo is only listed once. If you aren't sure what to edit/delete, please post the contents of your sources.list so we can see what it looks like.

Steps To Post Your Sources.list Contents:
1. In your terminal type:

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

2. In Gedit, right-click, choose "select all", right-click, choose "copy", and close Gedit.
3. In your BleepingComputer post click the "<>" button. This is for the CODE BBcode.
4. In the popup, click your mouse into the large empty space, and press "control" + "v". This should paste your clipboard contents into the box.
5. Click "OK" to close the popup, and then click "Post" to submit your post.

Hi this list is not exactly the same as the gedit generated by the terminal
Line 18 on mine is as quoted on my last post. Also only 140 lines on mine & this has 147


Below, I'll refer to the line numbers listed in your sources.list posting. Keep that in mind.

Steps To Edit Your Sources.list:
1. In your terminal type:
sudo -i gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
2. In Gedit, blank line 129, which looks like this:

deb http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial universe multiverse

This line is a partial duplicate of line 18 and line 28.
3. In Gedit, blank line 130, which looks like this:

deb-src http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial main restricted

This line is a duplicate of line 8.
4. In Gedit, blank line 83, which looks like this:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu wily partner

This line is a duplicate of line 52.
5. In Gedit, blank line 133, which looks like this:

deb http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-updates main restricted

This line is a duplicate of line 12.
6. In Gedit, blank line 134, which looks like this:

deb http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-backports main restricted

This line is a partial duplicate of line 38.
7. In Gedit, click "Save", and then close Gedit.
8. In your terminal type:
sudo apt-get update

Your new sources.list should look like this:
# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 16.04 LTS _Xenial Xerus_ - Beta amd64 (20160323)]/ xenial main restricted
# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 15.10 _Wily Werewolf_ - Release amd64 (20151021)]/ wily main restricted

Since you seem to be doing a lot of fiddling with your sources.list I'd suggest making a backup copy, so that if you ever get into trouble, you can easily get Apt back to a working state by restoring the sources.list from the backup. Just a thought.

Steps To Make A Backup Copy Of Sources.list:
1. In your terminal type:

sudo cp -i /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup
If prompted to overwrite, type "y" (means yes), and press "enter". Alternatively type "n" (means no) to abort. You will only be prompted to overwrite if you've previously made a backup.

Steps To Restore Backup Copy Of Sources.list:
1. In your terminal type:
sudo cp -i /etc/apt/sources.list.backup /etc/apt/sources.list
When prompted to overwrite, type "y" (means yes), and press "enter". Alternatively type "n" (means no) to abort.
2. In your terminal type:
sudo apt-get update

Hi Sorry for the long delay in giving feedback.  I managed to follow your instructions easily, thank you,  Completed the edits, backed up the sources list then spent a couple of hours comparing the list till I was satisfied that it was correct.

 

Caught up on some daily work, clicked google and input the url for the website when the PC crashed to a black screen. Tried to reboot with live dvd  got to aqua coloured screen and stuck. Searched the forums, tried some other things but no good.

A disk error had caused the problem.

I decided to wipe the disk clean and re-install Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

 

Installed ok, Dual booted ok  I installed Google Chrome, nothing else. Then although I had ticked the boxes for d/l updates and 3rd party during installation I decided to update.  The now familiar can only do a partial update. This partial update took 20 minutes to d/l and install.  I then wanted to make a backup of the sources list and thats when the fun began

 

  sudo cp -i /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup

** (gedit:2429):
WARNING **: Set document metadata failed: Setting attribute
metadata::gedit-position not supported


-i gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

(gedit:2862): Gtk-WARNING **: Calling Inhibit failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by any .service files
Then the "no entry" sign appeared in the top right screen: E:Malformed
line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (type), E:The list of
sources could not be read

Deleted the offending line and updated.   Then

sudo
add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa -y

This produced the updated drivers for xorg-edgers plus another 82 packages.
 Sorry dont know how to reduce the size of the text code box.
Now four hours later. Lots of googles more research but I have done it 

:bananas: 
Updates fully downloading and the icing on the cake. I installed the printer filters then the printer and it worked immediately.

Thanks for your help. I could not have achieved this without it.  The duplicate lines in the sources list previously were due to efforts to get the printer drivers. I posted on several forums for advice on removing the print drivers but no response. It wasnt that I was choosing to fiddle with the sources list.  Also when things dont go right newbies like me tend to plough on and try again.   I watch the updates carefully as they d/l and on one of the updates I noticed the line referring to "printer no filter"

Anyway I have a minor problem on my other win10/14.04lts PC so more posts to come.  I am fully aware of the time and efforts extended to me on this forum so if I have out stayed my welcome please say so. I will fully understand.

I managed to follow your instructions easily, thank you

Glad you got things going.

Anyway I have a minor problem on my other win10/14.04lts PC so more posts to come.  

The upside of having multiple PCs is that when something goes wrong with one you have another. The downside of having multiple PCs is there are more of them to have something go wrong with. :P

if I have out stayed my welcome please say so. I will fully understand.

Not at all. Welcome to BleepingComputer, and more specifically the Linux section. :)

Sorry I thought this was the same subject matter.  The rather long error message I got was almost line for line the same as the OP.

 

Moot point now the update problem resolved it self and the updates are now up to date.

Thanks guys.   Danny if you got a message saying repositories cant download then your problem is probably similar. Glad it resolved itself. A new thread was probably suggested because this one has almost turned into a book and its easier to have your own thread. Trust me no-one was being disrespectful or undermining your suspected problem.

 

I would suggest than now everything is ok you should perhaps take a backup of your sources list,following Hollowface's instructions here. Should you have further problems you will have a benchmark and a restore capacity. Also it is a good learning curve if you enjoy as I do the challenge of Linux.

 

I have had so much help from many many forums, this one being the best of the best that I am hoping that one day I might be able to offer a little "minor" help to other newbies like me.  Stick with it.  Good Luck

Sorry Danny forgot to say:  If this was your message:

 

 

GD is trying to access the org.gnome.SessionManager dbus directive, but that directive is not provided. Actually, that directive do not exist in normal installation, the message can be safely ignored.

 

Found it on the fourms.  cheers
