E: Malformed line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list (dist parse)
E: The list of sources could not be read.

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.

Best regards,
