loss of Synaptic Mgr. and update Mgr. in LXLE 12.04.5 ,32bit.


any time I try to open either Synaptin or the update Mgr. 's they briefly open then close. This was after I tried to install Dropbox. I eventually had to re-install LXLE,and thats when the problem commenced.
Thanking you.

You might try
Code:
apt-get remove synaptic
and when it finishes run
Code:
apt-get install synaptic
It sounds silly, but it might give you a cleaner installation than you have right now.

open a terminal, type
Code:
sudo synaptic
when prompted for your user password, enter it.
then, after synpatic closes, post the complete content of the terminal window here.
please use code tags (go advanced => '#') for that

ok, nothing interesting in terminal output.

did it still open only briefly, as described previously, and display the same error message?
