If you want to update it go ahead and update bu that's not really necessary if your Yoper is new version. Learn to use it instead. get comfortable with it.

#apt-get update
#apt-get upgrade (not necessarily)
#apt-get install MPlayer (just an example)

bzip2: Compressed file ends unexpectedly;
        perhaps it is corrupted?  *Possible* reason follows.

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.

You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.
