    Okay after a bit of experimenting I have figured out that if I run the command sudo apt-get install regardless of the program I am installing it says the error about Brave

    In a case like this, the first thing to try is a Google search, you see.
    https://www.google.com/search?clien...ist.d/brave-browser-release-.list+(component)

    And the first hit there is https://community.brave.com/t/malfo...-d-brave-browser-release-list-component/60210 . So try those instructions.

    Or try these first, since they're more recent and are on the Brave github: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/5703 .

    If you find yourself saying, "This is terrible! Why should I have to type these weird commands just to install this program? Why would they release a download that doesn't work for me?" then you should just stop, now, go back to Windows and be happy.

    Did you follow the instructions in the links I posted? (I posted a second link after you quoted my first post.)

    Yes, those are system files and you cannot delete them from the file browser. That is why you use commands starting with "sudo" from the terminal, like in those links.

    Let me say it again: if you don't like Googling things, and if you don't like following instructions, and you don't like the terminal, then using Linux is only going to bring you pain and suffering and you should stop now!

    Though you can also use chmod 777 /path/to/file and make said file readable and writable for any user.

    Actually, apt isn't quite the same as apt-get.

    Nice! As I said, I tried the official post and didn't work. But that one I linked worked like a charm. Apparently for you too ;)
