Kubuntu Software Management Problems


My Kubuntu 9.04 rig has been running wonderfully so far, so I don't think this is a hardware issue. I was working on a project today, and I had to edit video clips. I downloaded Kino, along with a bunch of other programs. I downloaded the other ones first, then added Kino. The Software Managment thing gave me a few weird errors (I think I tried to add one twice), but I kinda clicked through them quickly, not paying much attention. Anyway, Kino works fine. However, one of the files I had was an AVI file with two languages, Spainish being the main one and English the secondary. When I imported in into Kino, I couldn't figure out how to switch languages, or edit Audio at all, for that matter. I've only really used iMovie before, so it's possible that Kino can do this, but I don't know how. If anyone knows, I greatly appreciate it.

Nevertheless, that's not why I wrote this. I was editing in Kino and I closed Add and Remove Programs to free up the CPU (E5200 at stock speeds).It asked if I wanted to terminate it, and I hit yes. Now that I reopened to download Cinelerra it, though, it refuses to load any list of possible packages to download. It gives me the following error:

The package list needs to be rebuilt.
This should have been done by the backend automatically.
DETAILS:
Package cache could not be opened.


Anyone know how to fix this? I hope a reinstall isn't called for.

Thanks for the advice.

there can only be one instance of a package manager running at any one time, you may get this message possibly if you have 'The Software Managment thing' running and doing apt-install in a terminal at the same time.

can't help you with the sound track issue.

From the command line try typing this:
Code:
sudo aptitude update
and this time pay attention to and report any error messages you see.
cheers,

I opened up Konsole and typed in sudo aptitude update .

Here was the repsonse (copy-pasted)
E: Type 'http://www.kinodv.org/http://www.kinodv.org/' is not known on line 39 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
E: Type 'http://www.kinodv.org/http://www.kinodv.org/' is not known on line 39 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.
E: Type 'http://www.kinodv.org/http://www.kinodv.org/' is not known on line 39 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.
E: Type 'http://www.kinodv.org/http://www.kinodv.org/' is not known on line 39 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
E: Couldn't read list of package sources


The program I use to update is KPackageKit, if that helps.

I typed in sudo kpackage kit update, and got the following:

Error: "/var/tmp/kdecache-ariel" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.
Error: "/tmp/kde-ariel" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.


and then a popup telling me "This item is not supported by your backend or it is not a file" and then it says "update"

Your /etc/apt/sources.list file seems to be knackered. Those are very weird looking repos. Where did you get them? Can you post the contents of your sources.list file? You clearly need to remove a line called
Code:
http://www.kinodv.org/http://www.kinodv.org/
from sources.list and there may be other anomalies.
cheers,
jdk

Okay, I commented out the line that says http://www.kinodv.org/, file now reads:
