Linux Tutorial Series – 135.1 – /etc/apt/sources.list

/etc/apt/sources.list file contains repositories your operating system searches for when it looks for packages.

So if some tutorial asks you to modify /etc/apt/sources.list, you are modifying (most likely adding) repositories your operating system looks at when it searches for packages.

Warning: Adding new unknown repositories can be dangerous, because you don’t know what the packages in these repositories contain. Keep this in mind.
