Greetings neel and welcome to the forum!

What does the following command output:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list
It should output something like this:

deb quantal main
If it does not, then run the following command:

sudo sh -c "echo deb quantal main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list"
Then try again the first command I wrote about to confirm if the file is now properly defined.

After that, continue following the official instructions - starting from step #2.
