Syntax error: unexpected end of file – on ubuntu server

By Pedro Aguiar

I have Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.4.0-57-generic x86_64)

When I connect I see a message:

: command not found
: command not found
-bash: /home/pegada/.profile: line 21: syntax error: unexpected end of file

I didn’t find the error on the file, what’s the issue?

    # ~/.profile: executed by the command interpreter for login shells.
# This file is not read by bash(1), if ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login
# exists.
# see /usr/share/doc/bash/examples/startup-files for examples.
# the files are located in the bash-doc package.

# the default umask is set in /etc/profile; for setting the umask
# for ssh logins, install and configure the libpam-umask package.
#umask 022

# if running bash
if [ -n "$BASH_VERSION" ]; then
    # include .bashrc if it exists
    if [ -f "$HOME/.bashrc" ]; then
    . "$HOME/.bashrc"
    fi
fi

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin directories
PATH="$HOME/bin:$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"
