    A message is coming on screen when I'm trying to download updates. It says:

    Report this bug against update manager package. 
    

    and then:

    E: Malformed line 54 in source list/etc/apt/sources.list(dist parse)

    You have an error in line 54 of your /etc/apt/sources.list I can't really explain that too much more clearly. It's just saying that that line is not in the correct format, or perhaps that you deleted one of the pounds, so something that should have been a comment is now getting read.

    Unable to login in Ubuntu 12.04 after update
  • angadsg

    I face a login loop and I am unable to login.

    I tried reinstalling lightdm, ubuntu-desktop, but doesnt help. I installed gdm and used it as my default for a while to see if it was a lightdm issue.

    But here it seems like that there are 3 incorrect password attempts on something that starts when I login. I think my sudoers file is correct.

    Here is my auth.log -

    May 23 14:52:01 ubuntu-desktop lightdm: pam_unix(lightdm:session): session closed for user lightdm
