I work on Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 "Betsy."

Upon running

      sudo apt-get update

I get the following error code at the end of the output

W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://security.debian.org/

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

However, my etc/apt/sources.list file looks fine. Here it is,

  #/etc/apt/sources.list

  deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free

  deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

How can I fix this problem?

Look in /etc/sources.d for additional files used by apt-get and friends.

Personally, I zero out /etc/sources.list and move its contents into /etc/sources.d so I can easily identify not only stable or testing, but also third-party additions such as those provided by Google Chrome.
