[Tox Support] error reading files

Hi Brice... so it's hard to answer your question just because I'm not 
sure what do you mean by "fine".

So let's start with your apt-get sources files configuration....

If you want to get rid of from Google Chrome...  do you remember how did 
you installed in a first place?

This matters because if you used apt-get to installed on your machine, 
the best thing to do (at least that's the way I would have done it) is 
to use:

sudo apt-get remove google-chrome-stable && |sudo apt-get purge 
sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean

that will do all the work for you automajically and it will clean up 
your source list config file.

Now, if your removed Chrome by hand (simply deleting the files to 
"trash"), than yes, you would have left overs with references to ppa in 
your sources.list config file and you sould delete them from sources.list

Now this is very important...
The link you have mentioned on github - JFreegman... I don't know what 
that is and where did it came from.

For your security sake, please use this link: 

Follow the guide how to add the |"deb" link in to your sources.list file 
and they key....
All the steps are there in the instructions, I can confirm that it works 
the way intended.
I use tox on my Ubuntu and Debian machines and all is well as far as 
installing the Tox using that guide.

Take a look at the link, read it carefully, follow all the steps and you 
will have Tox client in your machine...

I totally support your idea of not using anything Google related... and 
definitely no MS Skype if you can afford not to use it.
Tox is not ready for a prime-time, but even tho it's still buggy and in 
active development, I use it and trust it way more than any other 
software from MS.

> Hello Mr. Martin... from the information you have provided, the error you are getting while updating your system's software, it appears that ppa listed in your /etc/apt/sources.list config file, related to google's Chrome browser.

Once you deleted those two lines, save your sources.list config file and run: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade This should help with error messages and failed update/upgrade command for apt-get. Let me know if this makes sense... and if it worked for you. Damien

They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. Can you advise me about the problem please? What do I need to do to resolve this and what actually went wrong in the first place?
