I'm using Linux Mint and every time I use apt-get update in terminal I receive this message.

E: Type 'http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.

    Could you edit your question and add the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list? – Stephen Kitt Oct 20 '16 at 17:05

You need to edit your additional-repositories.list file and ensure the line for Chrome (the first line apparently) is

deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

The line you currently have is missing at least the deb part.
