I keep getting an error message when opening the Synaptic Package Manager. "E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report." I also can't install any software from the software center. When I run the line in terminal, I get lost.
while trying to open synaptic package manager i get the following errer "E: The package clamav-daemon needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. E: Internal error opening cache (1). Please report."
E: Type 'nchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-wine-ppa-maverick.list E: The list of sources could not be read. The above is the console output when i type sudo apt-get update Update manager throws the same error so now I can't install or update software .
It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.
I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!
message when attempted updating manager E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Eroblem with MergeList [URL].. E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.' Before that happened upgraded Opera and have tried to uninstall but synaptic manager does not respond.
I've just installed ubuntu 10.04 and see that there are a two type installation software? why there are two things? What are the benefits of these two? What are the Difference Between Synaptic Package Manager and Update Manager?
I have a little problem on my relatively newly installed 10.10 Lubuntu that I can't quite figure out. I'm guessing it is a piece of cake for most of you ubuntu-veterans so I'm hoping a kind soul would save my day: The last couple of weeks, the apt-get update (and corresponding button in synaptic) does not manage to update all of my repositories, and I get a "404 not found" error at the end (see attached text file (hope I did that right, am a longtime lurker but haven't posted anything much yet)).
I realize that I have been doing some adding of repositories, and have written the wrong command a couple of times, which may be the cause of this (at least the two frescobaldi ppa errors). What I don't understand, is how I remove these faulty(?) repositories, so that my system stops claiming being unupdated. After searching/googling the issue I tried looking for the corresponding entries in sources.lst, but to no avail.
ps. my system is in german, the messages say "W: Failure when getting.." and "E: some index files could not be downloaded, they were ignored or others were used in their place". (rather badly translated)
I've been running Xubuntu for almost a year, and haven't had any problems with it up till last week, when Update Manager said it couldn't install a lib package. Several days later, I saw the update notif saying that there were 12 available updates, so I went to install them, and it wouldn't install any of them. Now, if I try to start Update or Synaptic in any way, they'll open for about five seconds and then close.
Did an update today by update manager. Noticed Virtualbox problems, will no longer start XP when program is opened. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling VB 4.0.8 would not work . Now I have a problem with Synaptic Package Managar. It will not open an error message pops up. How do I fix this??
I found LKL on my computer. I need to remove it. It isn't showing up in synaptic and i can't figure out how to remove it. SUDO apt-get remove lkl tells me this. E: Couldn't find package lkl. i can't find it with the search and with google.
Ubuntu 10.04: I get the following error in Synaptic: "Could not download all repository indexes" "Could not get [URL]...86/Packages.gz 404 Not Found" (translated from Norwegian).[URL].. does not exist, but it does for Karmic (change lucid for karmic in the url). How do I correct this in Synaptic?
I don't know how, but on my 64 bit machine I installed this 32 bit deb file: kobo-desktop.deb. I did that while using Ubuntu 10.04. Now I've updated to 10.10, and I can't uninstall it. Searching for "kobo" in Synaptic or USC only gives me a game, and using apt-get I get this error (I've included some output from the last command I run so you can see that my system does recognize that kobo-desktop is ins fact installed):
Got Karmic Koala up on running on my main computer and have been going through Beginning Ubuntu Linux, Fourth Edition. It was printed during Jaunty Jackalope, but it looks like its information applies to most areas.
However, it says I should be able to find msttcorefonts in the Synaptic Package Manage, and it's not there. I double checked Writer and Times New Roman and the other true type staples are not there, so it's not that it was installed with the boot disk.
I'm having a problem where I can't open Synaptic Package Manager. The error message I get is this:

Here's my sources.list:

Try reloading my synaptic Package manager and I get the following message after a while:-

I've just installed Lucid Lynx and it seems to be running fine, except the synaptic package manager is downloading things incredibly slowly. Is this just because the server is busy due to the new release?
i am unable to open package manager or install any software, each time i try it brings up this messageE: Malformed line 5 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (URI parse)E: The list of sources could not be read.Go to the repository dialogue to correct the problem.E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
