    Xubuntu:Edgy - how to find the most recent sources.list


    I completely removed gthumb using Synaptic package manager because I had intended to reinstall it fresh. That was my first mistake because now I can't seem to reinstall it. When attempting:

    jagibbs@Sacrifice:~$ sudo apt-get install gthumb


    I get:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package gthumb is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package gthumb has no installation candidate

    so then I try: [jagibbs@Sacrifice:~$ sudo apt-get update]

    and get:

    jagibbs@Sacrifice:~$ sudo apt-get update
    E: Malformed line 15 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
    jagibbs@Sacrifice:~$ sudo mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list
    jagibbs@Sacrifice:~$ sudo mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list
    jagibbs@Sacrifice:~$ sudo apt-get update

    So now I figure my repositories are not up to date, although I'm not sure how to find the most up to date and working repositories. How can so many repositories be not found? I'm running Xubuntu 6.10 (Edgy I think). Any ideas on how to get the repositories correct?? I really have found nothing too useful for my particular question online regarding repositories. In addition, I figured I'd just do a dist upgrade to start fresh...of course I can't do that either with the repositories as they are.

    My current sources.list is:


    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ edgy main universe

    ## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
    ## distribution.
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ edgy-updates main universe

    ## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'universe'
    ## repository.

    thanks for any suggestions!

    Hmm, actually I think I may be running Xubuntu 7.10 the Gutsy Gibbon. why would my sources.list still reference Edgy? I did a clean install from a cd ISO for 7.10 and have never changed my sources.list manually afterwards.
