Is this good or bad?

Found a swap file by the name "/etc/apt/.sources.list.swp"

(1) Another program may be editing the same file.
If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
different instances of the same file when making changes.
Quit, or continue with caution.

(2) An edit session for this file crashed.
If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r /etc/apt/sources.list"
to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
If you did this already, delete the swap file "/etc/apt/.sources.list.swp"
to avoid this message.

Here's a list to the Ubuntu sources.list generator. You can use it to rebuild your sources.list.
