linuxmint & brave

Hi, First I am a complete novice to linux,not much better with MS. I have loaded Linuxmint 19.3 Tricia onto my Acer laptop fitted with AMD athlon II x3 P340.
This was a couple of days ago and everything appeared to be OK, until I tried to download Brave ( which i have used on a MC PC) now the updates are locked out message “E:Type ‘gpg’ is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.” plus unable to access software manager - can anyone help. Please remember complete beginner

Hey @electricsub,
have a look here:

install with debian or ubuntu method. because the inheritance of linuxmint is from ubuntu distro family and ubuntu is from debian distro family
you can check the distro family in this link

There’s probably a typo in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list. If you can copy here the contents of this file, we should be able to help you.
