This question already has an answer here:
My 32 bit debian (version: Debian GNU/Linux 8) installation is suddenly giving me the following messages when I run
W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie-updates/InRelease Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file) E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
The funny part is that I did not add any additional sources. Here is my /etc/apt/sources.list file. It's default.
# # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.7.1 _Jessie_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20170116-10:07]/ jessie main #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.7.1 _Jessie_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20170116-10:07]/ jessie main deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ jessie main deb-src http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ jessie main deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main # jessie-updates, previously known as 'volatile' deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main
Now I don't know how to solve this. Can this file somehow gets corrupted? Can I revert it back? What should I do to fix this?
