You can, just you need to learn how to do that (= how to read a file and post the content). Posting the same picture several times will not help.

LisaMarie78,

You have entered the following:

Code:
/etc/apt/sources.list
You must enter:

Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
Then do a screenshot and post it.

LisaMarie78,

Please read post #12 again carefully.

You need to enter this command:

Code:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
You are less likely to make a mistake if you copy and paste this command into Terminal.

As suggested earlier, take a screenshot (Print Scrn key) of the file and then close the file using the combination of Ctrl + X.

Then post the screenshot on here using Additional items > Attach files (below the main text box).

You have written all your command lines without any spaces in them. No wonder your computer cannot understand them. It's like writing wordswithoutspaceslikethis.

A typical command consists of a single word (think of it as a verb) followed by separate words for the things you want the command to act on (think of them as nouns).

The solution to your problem is outlined in post #2.

You need to open the file, /etc/apt/sources.list in Terminal with the command:

Code:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Debianís default text editor is nano.

If you are not familiar with nano, here are two links which may be helpful:

https://www.hostinger.co.uk/tutorial...no-text-editor

https://www.tecmint.com/learn-nano-t...itor-in-linux/

Personally I would install gedit, since it is much simpler to use:

Code:
sudo apt install gedit
Of course this probably will not work because of the problem with your sources list and therefore you will be obliged to use nano in the first instance.

Once you have opened the sources list using:

Code:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
take a screenshot (Print Scrn key) and then close the file using the combination of Ctrl + X.

Then post the screenshot on here using Additional items > Attach files (below the main text box).
now what am I suppose to do here is the screenshot of what I did as you stated above sorry for the frustration with me.

I can't make anything of the last two images (probably because I don't know anything about chromebooks ), but the previous requested ones show that you are still running commands together. sudo is a command for temporarily gaining root privileges. The first argument it takes is another command, nano, which is a simple editor. This is the program you want to run as root. Then comes nano's argument, the full name of the file that you wish to edit. Space it out properly and it will work.

LisaMarie78,

I am not sure what you are trying to do.

I refer to the sources.list in post #24:

If you are trying to remove one or both of the bottom 2 lines of text which refer to Wine, then do the following.

Move the cursor using the Down arrow to the beginning of the line you wish to delete and press CTRL + K.
(Repeat if necessary).

To exit from the editor, press CTRL + X.

If there are changes, it will ask you whether to save them or not.

Input Y for Yes, then press Enter.

For an Example sources.list for Debian, visit:
https://wiki.debian.org/SourcesList

Note that you are using Debian 10 (Buster), not Debian 11 (Bullseye), which is referred to in the above link.

This is line 1 and there appears to be something like the letter d in front of the comment (#...) that might be causing the problem. There could be some other non-printable characters but see what happens when you delete the d. Please make a backup copy of the sources.list file for safety.
