how to repair apt update error

Specs: Linux Mint 18, AMD Ryzen 3 1200 / 8 GB
Unfortunately I am with am with a very slow EVDO (Huawei) Internet connection.

Recently I switched from win 10 64 bit To Linux Mint 18. I managed to install some programs that were not in the original setup, with the help of the program’s instructions. Now the inbuilt Firefox tells me I am critically outdated. I knew that there was an automatic update, but that gives me the following error. In the manual I cannot find a solution. How can I repair the following error

Process ID 1671

Log File: tmp/mintUpdate/h9k1pr62

01.19@11:55 ++ Launching mintUpdate
01.19@11:55 ++ Starting refresh
01.19@11:55 ++ Initial refresh will happen in 10 minutes, 0 hours and 0 days
01.19@11:55 ++ Error in checkAPT.py, could not refresh the list of updates
01.19@12:05 ++ MintUpdate is in tray mode, performing initial refresh
01.19@12:05 ++ Starting refresh (including refreshing the APT cache)
01.19@12:05 ++ Auto-refresh will happen in 0 minutes, 2 hours and 0 days
01.19@12:05 ++ Error in checkAPT.py, could not refresh the list of updates

Thanks for help

Have been trying to restore the default settings in "Software Sources" --> "Official Repositories" --> "Restore the default settings". The result says "Failed to load the package list".

The result is: E:Malformed entry 1 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list (Suite), E:The list of sources could not be read.

For starters, update from Mint 18 to Mint 19.

Open Update Manager, click Edit, then click "Upgrade to Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa"

Sorry, I informed you wrongly. Have Linux Mint 19 Tara Cinnamon installed. My internet connection in Ethiopia doesn't work for days or when it works it suddenly shuts down, Maybe I have to wait to do things until I'm back home
