Typo causes apt-get to fail on ubuntu

First thing I do on my new droplet as root: apt-get install git

I get errors that look like:

Err trusty-updates/main git-man all 1:1.9.1-1ubuntu0.1

I’m PRETTY SURE there’s a typo there: ’ trusty-updates’ is meant to be ‘trusty-updates’ (extra leading space!).

Please fix this, DO!

I just spun up a new Ubuntu 14.04.3 droplet but was unable to duplicate this issue. Was this a new droplet created from the Ubuntu 14.04 image?
