More trouble installing Wine

(1/3) > >>

Kevin Perez:
Hello Everyone,

I am hoping to eventually install Zello on my computer. In order for this program to work, it requires Wine. I tried following the instructions for installing Wine by:

* dpkg --print-architecture
* sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/focal main'
* Received error message: " E: Malformed entry 55 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list (Component)
E: The list of sources could not be read."
* Opened Menu->System->Package Manager
* Enter Password and Press Authenticate
* Received error message: "E: Malformed entry 55 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list (Component)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report."
* Pressed "Close" button
* Reported all of this to you
Given all this, how may I finally install Wine? What woudl you recommend I do about the error messages. I have already tried using cat /etc/apt/sources.list. It produces:

Unfortunately, I am novice enough to be clueless about what this tells me. Perhaps it offers you some clue. Thank you for reading this post. I very much look forward to having Wine (whatever version you recommend) and Zello up and working on this computer. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Jerry:
You should be using Lite Software to install Wine, it will do everything you need to. Undo what you have done first.

Kevin Perez:
I am even a big enough novice, to not know how to undo what I have done. How may I accomplish undo?

Jerry:
Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list as Administrator (right click on file) Replace contents of file with this:

Kevin Perez:
Thank you. This fixed the problem of the Package Manager spouting error messages.

What would you recommend to get Wine and Zello working on this computer?
