Help with Synaptic


Post by thohnhaus » Mon Aug 12, 2019 3:43 pm

I have tried to install Brave through the terminal and now Synaptic has shut down with this error:
E: Malformed entry 1 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-.list (Component)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

I have tried to edit this, I have not been able to install Brave,, can I just delete this?
