E:Type '--2020-10-19'is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list E:the list of sources could not be read

I try sudo apt-get update on zorin os and got this error :point_down:

E:Type 'โ€“2020-10-19โ€™is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list

E:the list of sources could not be read.

How can I resolve this issue?

First, can you try using System Tools -> Software Updater and seeing how that runs?

The issue is with the entry in your first line in your sources.list file. You can remove the line as shown here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/96967/how-do-i-fix-this-e-type-is-not-known-on-line-in-source-list-update
It may be easier browsing to your sources.list file using sudo nautilus and using the superuser nautilus or just use the terminal.

Now I canโ€™t install git on my laptop.
New error :point_down:
E : package โ€˜gitโ€™ has no installation candidate

This might help recreate your sources.list file?
