if it is the exact same error then you did not edit the file correctly. Please confirm the contents of the file and that the error is *exactly* the same.

it seems you still didn't edit this file properly:
it's a simple text file.
you have to make sure you have a "#" at the beginning of every line inside that file.
you can use nano, or any other text editor, but you have to do this with sudo (= root privileges).

after you have done that post the output of
cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list
sudo apt-get update
