Try reloading my synaptic Package manager and I get the following message after a while:-
An error occured the following details are provided W: Failed to fetch http://ke.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...ic/Release.gpg Could not resolve 'ke.archive.ubuntu.com' W: Failed to fetch http://ke.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...tion-en_US.bz2 Could not resolve 'ke.archive.ubuntu.com' W: Failed to fetch http://ke.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...tion-en_US.bz2 Could not resolve 'ke.archive.ubuntu.com'
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?
When I try to open Synaptic Package Manager and update-manager it gives me the following error message: 'E:Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/banshee-team-ppa-maverick.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.' How to solve this error because my system cannot update or install any new application.
I upgraded an older system from jaunty 9.04 to karmic 9.10/ Following the upgrade, and about six hours of stable use, I ran the synaptic package manager, to pull in fvwm-crystal and a couple of other nits. Synaptic went into its usual tiring Rebuild Index while the resource hog update-apt-xapian ran away gleefully with the cpu pegged. for longer than I've ever seen it... about 15 minutes, and then the system crashed. and, I mean it crashed hard. I have not seen linux do this in years. Not just a seg fault, the whole machine just crashed (cpu, display, keyboard, the works). Restart and no problem, until I ran Synaptic (Rebuild Index. several minutes, crash).I played this game for a while; thinking the system might just might be overheating... let it cool down, and retried.same result. I tried running one last time, and this time pressed the reload (on Synaptic main panel) prior to the crash.it pulled in the repository updates and completed the Rebuild Index. (no crash)
I have run Synaptic several times since that. downloaded some goodies, and have had no further crashes (although, it does run Rebuild Index every time I start it.and update-apt-xapian pegs the cpu while this is going on. The question(s) I have are:
1) I was not aware that an apt these days can bring down the kernel (no panic, no logging, just down....) How is update-apt-xapian tied into the kernel that permits this vulnerability?
2) There appears (from searches) to be a problem with Synaptic or at least with xapian...?? What is going on with this resource pig..?
3) If I disable xapian and use sudo apt-get instead, instead of Synaptic, does this solve this resource problem?
4) Is there another forum area where this might be addressed besides general?
Since upgrading to Natty I have a very annoying issue and since I am unable to resolveWhenever I start the synaptics package manager I get the following message:An error occurred:E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.Once I run sudo dpkg --configure -a from the terminal this is what I get:Setting up xulrunner-1.9.1 (22.214.171.124~hg20110309r27352+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1) ...No further progress the machine hangs indefinitely on this, need to kill terminal to exit. Even hours waiting does not show any progress.
I forced the install of graph-tool package [URL]. Now it is of course tagged as broken, so update manager wont do anything. But I want to accept it, I know it is not really broken. (In fact, graph-tool_xxx.deb asks for libcgal4. squeeze only has libcgal5, so I am betting this is not an issue, as far as graph-tool is concerned.)
This happened completely randomly. One day, my synaptic and update manager is working fine and the next day, I open one of them and get a error window that doesn't say anything (no details on the error). So, i tried the terminal, sudo apt-get update, and this message shows:
Reading package lists... Error! E: Problem parsing dependency Depends E: Error occurred while processing lib�tartup-notificamion0-dev (NewVersion1) E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_karmic_main_binary-i386_Packages E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
I downloaded the first CD Image as instructed at [url] and installed it on my laptop. I would like to install the "Synaptic Package Manager" and a mirror repository so that my system can update.
I have apparently installed " apt-cdrom add" and then typed "apt-get update" and I tried to install the mirror when the system was installed but as the wireless was not connected it apparently did not add the correct details.
I am having issues with Update Manager after cancelling an Update.The Update Manager shows a number of required updates, but when I click on Install Updates... Nothing happensWhen I launch sudo dpkg --configure -a in a terminal I receive the following message:dpkg: status database area is locked by another process.On another forum i saw something regarding a gksu.lock file that needed to be deleted... but I can't find any such file....If I try to launch update manager via a terminal: sudo update-manager I get the following error:

I recently installed Xubuntu (9.10) in my computer, but... I have been having intermitent hard disk problems, and so I decided to google a little and after reading this:
I did use Synaptic to search for smartmontools and then install it.
Synaptic complained that it couldn't autenticate the packet, but I figured this was happening because... this is not an application supported by Canonical? I clicked and installed the packet (well, in fact, I *think* it has installed two applications, not just one).
Then later, I saw one of those arrows at the top right of the screen, and clicked it to install updates. Synaptic told me to update SUDO. Hmm... serious. And then even more: it told me that it couldn't autenticate it I stopped the installation and registered at these forums.
And more: before posting, I tried to reproduce the "error" (and again, stop before installing the "suspicious" SUDO update) but Synaptic now autenticated it troubleless and installed it.
Well, now I have a LOT of questions:
1. Where do I place this post?. Security?. Hardware problems?. Update and installation? (Linux noobiness?)
2. my hard disk?. I've read somewhere that an application called "fsck"
3. What may have happened with Synaptic?. Why wouldn't it autenticate a SUDO update?
4. Have I done something wrong?. Something unrepairable?
5. Can I trust the SUDO version that now I have installed in my system?
6. How could I check what has Synaptic exactly installed?. Is there any log file anywhere in my system?
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:
E: Malformed line 57 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse) E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
Here's my sources.list:

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.
I tried to install Redshift's PPA then an error occur, after that , my software center is not working, after i click the ubuntu software centre, nothing's happening..and also i cannot open synaptic package manager.But there is an error coming out code...
i cannot access synaptic package manager. It asks for my password and then when i enter it synaptic starts to load and gives me this error message:E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
I tried entering the command listed in the terminal and got an error. Anyone know how to fix this so i can launch synaptic again?
whenever i tried to open Synaptic package Manager the following messages shows:
E: Type '.net/tualatrix/ppa/ubuntu' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tualatrix-ppa-maverick.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
Ubuntu Software Center, Update Manager, Synaptic package Manager all are jammed and indicates the same error. Except these everything works perfectly.
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".
