I installed Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 on my HP Pavilion DV9000 two days ago. I had used used version 9.04 before, so am somewhat familiar with Linux, although by no means any type of expert, just a user. When I installed it on this system, it won't let me install any software or plugins and keeps giving me this message:
Software Index is Broken
This is a major failure of your software management system. Please check for broken packages with synaptic, check the file permissions and correctness of the file '/etc/apt/sources.list' and reload the software information with: 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get install -f'.
So I do that & this is what I get! I put a space into all of the ubuntu links so that this forum would allow me to paste my terminal results here. It wouldn't let me post links. What do I do??? I run two businesses on this thing and can't do hardly anything with it! Can someone PLEASE HELP???
