Try ​removing the whitespace from the line between the two paths as below:

addons_path = /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/addons,/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/custom-addons

In the last error line right after directory it says : forwardslash, then whitespace, and then the directory name.
Perhaps you backslashed the newline?

Try the following:
Right after the original addons directory you type a comma, then a newline, and then perhaps some whitespace and finally your custom addons path.

I want to add a custom folder for addons but Odoo doesn’t recognize line added.

In my case I have the “conf” file on /etc/odoo

And the file is: opener-server.conf


; This is the password that allows database operations:
admin_passwd = ******
db_host = False
db_port = False
db_user = odoo
db_password = False
addons_path = /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/addons
logfile = /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log


On the line “addons_path” I add the next information:

addons_path = /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/addons, /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/custom-addons

I reboot the server and I put any module, I go to backend Odoo, I update modules, and it doesn’t appears. 

What is happening?

Thank you!
