File bug about bad sources.list typo error message

Description

debathena / auto-update / andersk / 16:43 / vinegar-pot.mit.edu

The error is much more confusing than it should be.

W: Failed to fetch http://debathena.mit.edu/apt/dists/jaunty/Release
Unable to find expected entry openaf/source/Sources in Meta-index
file (malformed Release file?)

But I assumed you had made sources.list typos before and new what
this error usually means.

debathena / auto-update / andersk / 16:43 / vinegar-pot.mit.edu

Probably worth filing a bug.

In Natty, this now says "(Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)"

Which I think is good enough.
