when I tired installing ros, after I typed :"sudo apt-get update", I got the error below:
E: Malformed entry 1 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list (URI parse)
E: The list of sources could not be read.

Does anyone know how to solve it? Thanks for any help.

Please see whether this is a duplicate of #q311593, #q322782 and/or #q198156 (note those Q&As are about Ubuntu Bionic, but everything there works for Xenial as well).

the suggestion in #q311593 works for me, which is

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
