APT database problem


Hi, I was tryng to install something, and I seem to have screwed up the apt database. When I type sudo apt-get install anything, I get error "..." is not known in line 44 in sources list. Is there any way I can fix this?

Post /etc/apt/sources.list at least. Most probably you just need to delete offending line.
