When I try to open SYNAPTIC PACKAGE MANAGER in my ubuntu 11.04 version, it is showing error. Following error is being displayed:
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_bina ry-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
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!
After installing the 'getdeb' and 'playdeb' debian packages that automate adding those repositories for [URL] my synaptic package manager started acting up giving me this error: ould not download all repository indexes The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

Worst combination ever.. To fix "no wubildr" I have to use synaptic package manager. To use synaptic package manager I have to access recovery mode, which the "no wubildr" problem is not allowing me to. Is there anything else, than reinstalling ubuntu, I can do?
EDIT: the terminal is not working either.. Segmentation fault:/etc/sudoers is mode 0666, should be 0440. That is why I am unable to use the synaptic package manager.
i have windows 7 on my laptop and I wanted to install Ubuntu but I had problems with the partitions so I installed Wubi. It looks just the same as ubuntu, but I tried to find some programs in the synaptic package manager (like Kile or aMsn) but the manager is not finding anything I search for.
I have recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 from Ubuntu 10.10. After the upgrade, I wanted to do a system cleanup using Synaptic Package Manager. After, I have marked a package for removal, the "Apply" button is still shaded, i.e., I am not able to click the "Apply" button. The "Apply" button is still not functional even I am able to download and install packages.

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?
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'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 need some assistance on getting Synaptic Package Manager to start correctly. I can start it from the command line without any errors. When I try to use the shortcut under the /System/Administration menu it ask for the password but nothing ever opens up nor is there an error. My source list is fine. I have ran "sudo apt-get update".

I have some programs that I have already uninstalled, but that I now realize have left behind files on my computer. I went to the package manager and selected them for complete removal, but the apply button will not work. Same with ctrl P. Is there a way to get it to completely erase these programs? Is there a better way to go about this?
Whenever I start Synaptic package manager it shows some changes to apply and when I click apply it shows error E: /var/cache/apt/archives/mysql-server-5.1_5.1.41-3ubuntu12.3_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 1.
Have a new Dell Vostro A90 that came with 8.04 and I have installed 9.10 from a CD that was mailed to me. I can connect to the internet with a wired connection, but I cannot connect wirelessly. When I've tried to install the broadcom driver by going to Synaptic Package Manager and hitting reload, I get a message that 1 of 15 packages is downloading, but nothing downloads and I get a failed message for each of the jobs. Any clues as to how to proceed from here? I am very new to Ubuntu.
In a moment of temporary insanity I tried to install Backuppc using the synaptic package manager, but started to panic when the installer tried to set up an Apache web server on my PC (which I do not want). At that point I tried to cancel the installation, but got an error message. I then marked the package for complete removal in the package manager, but every time I click the apply I get an error message, "E: backuppc: subprocess pre-removal script returned error exit status 2" and the package, which did not install correctly in the first place, refuses to go. When I ran the update manager today, to install the latest updates, the manager tried to continue with the Apache installation stage of the Backuppc installation. How do I get rid of it?
