Can you post your sources list as it is so we can see if anything is wrong with it?
If this happened while you were trying to download a game can you explain the process you went through? Did you add a new repository? Is the game from Ubuntu or is it external?Have you tried rebooting and starting again? The more information you can give the more help we can be.

Just from a quick count I think "Line 63" is the blank one, you will need to confirm this, it is only 5.20am here and I haven't slept much so check this yourself as well ok. If it is make sure it is actually empty meaning there are not some spaces used but blank. Also check the end of the previous line making sure there is no blank spaces after multiverse. Post back and tell us what you find.

I don't see 2 empty lines in your post above this last one. Could you please place your sources.list as an attachment to this thread? You will need to copy and past it to a gedit file (name it soures.txt) and attach the file to the post, you may have to scroll down the screen to additional options > attach files > manage attachments and follow the information on the next screen. I'll then take a look at it on my computer and see if I can see anything. The other thing you could do is remove the new entries and update (not upgrade) your files. Then see how it goes, and if everything is alright reboot your machine and add the lines back to your sources.list remember to update (not upgrade) your files again and see if everything is ok.

EDIT: OK I have had a look at getdeb games and notice your sources.list has lines 64 and 65 (I done the gedit file myself lol) as

Code:
deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdebgames
deb-src http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdebgames
GetDeb, it used to be playdeb, says the line should look like this
Code:
deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdeb games
deb-src http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdeb games
I know this is the line after the one that apparently has the error but if we fix some obvious issues first we may actually fix the real problem.

Yep that was right.

Follow my suggestion in the EDIT of my previous post. I think your getdeb entries are incorrect and you are being told the error is from them. So where you have
Code:
deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdebgames
deb-src http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdebgames
change it to
Code:
deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdeb games
deb-src http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdeb games

Open a terminal and type
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and that will ask you for your password . Once you type in the password (you wont see anything come on screen while you are typing your password) it will open it so you can edit it in gedit.

The other way to do it is to open software sources and edit it in that by clicking on the lines and clicking edit. It will be obvious where to make the changes from there.
