"Type 'sudo' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list"


I'm a Linux newbie. A few days back I tried to download Signal through the terminal according to the steps mentioned on the site. I wasn't able to download it and it showed an error. The problem is whenever I try to download any software, it shows the same error it showed while I was trying to download Signal:
"E: Type 'sudo' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list
E: The list of sources could not be read."
Even after rebooting my laptop, the problem persists. Other functions like shutting down work. What is the course of action I should take?

post your signal-xenial.list. there shouldn't ever be the word sudo in your sources.list

Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu xenial main
the address you are targetting should be different but the above is the right way to have a source list entry. if you are doing source code instead of binaries you should have the same line but beginning with
Code:
deb-src
instead of deb.

I replied to your other post (https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...al-4175654785/). This is a duplicate and will probably be removed shortly.
