Package: synaptic
Version: 0.75
Severity: normal

"apt-get" complains about invalid filename extension:

N: Ignoring file '' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension
N: Ignoring file '' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension

I see there is also /etc/apt/

Suggest all these are cleaned up after successfully writing new
