Etcher broke my packages

#1

(ubuntu 18.04.1) i installed etcher, rebooted some time afterwards, and got this:
Screenshot%20from%202019-02-03%2019-26-39

when i put sudo apt-get update in the terminal, i essentially get the same thing:

E: Type 'sudo' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.

anyone know a fix? i’m pretty pissed.

also, for additional context, i attempted to install etcher via the terminal using the github instructions but i got confused and i couldn’t get it to work, so i tried with the appimage and it worked - i assume it must have been a problem with me f****ng up with the terminal installation

It looks like a malformed list.
Could you paste the output of the following command here:

sudo cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list

E:type sudo is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list.

Same here,this is what i get when I run sudo cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install balena-etcher-electron

Thanks for the help…
