Running sudo apt-get update i get the following error message:

Ign http://packages.linuxmint.com rebecca/upstream Translation-en_US

N: Ignoring file 'getdeb.list.bck' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension
W: Failed to fetch http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu/dists/rebecca-getdeb/apps/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found [IP: 80]

W: Failed to fetch http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu/dists/rebecca-getdeb/apps/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found [IP: 80]

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Moreover, finding out the folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d I cannnot neither delete the file that create problem or modify that; I can only open it to see the text file content.

Could someone suggest a solution and provide some references about?


Running the following commands:

gksu nautilus
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list.bck

you can remove that file. Here you can find some more explanation about the solution procedure.
