Etcher broke my packages


(ubuntu 18.04.1) i installed etcher, rebooted some time afterwards, and got this:

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


hello? i haven’t been able to update or install anything since this first appeared! this is really making me mad!


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
