Gutsy + not installing system updates on install

When i was installing gutsy, I remember seeing an error about not being able to install some system updates and what not. Firsty, im interested on how i can install these updates now that gutsy is running on my laptop. Secondly, whenever i try to "sudo aptitude install" something, nothing happens... It can never find any packages and nothing ever gets installed. for example:

sudo aptitude install envyng-gtk

It finds nothing...there were a couple other things i tried as well, but it didn't download, upgrade or install any packages.

Any idea whats going on?

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I also tried this to get the updates...same thing:

reading packafe lists....done
reading packafe lists....done
Building dependancy tree
reading state information...done
calculating update...done

You need to show the actual output in case it contains a clue for us.


sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude upgrade
