Hello all, I'm having a few problems updating x.x
I've just reformatted my laptop, doing a fresh vista install, followed by a fresh install of ubuntu 8.10 64-bit on dual boot. Now after getting into Ubuntu, I ran the update manager, downloading updates first then rebooting. I then activated the Nvidia 180 driver for my 8700M GT graphics card, then restarted.
I then ran the 9.04 update, letting it run through then restart when needed and things seemed to go ok, but then I ran synaptic to install VLC (my favourite media player) and I was getting some error messages, which I foolishly forgot to note down.
I opened up terminal, running the "sudo apt-get update" command, followed by "sudo apt-get install sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-esd mozilla-plugin-vlc" but got more errors.
When I now try to open Synaptic, I get this error message,
I'm still quite a Linux newbie, so please treat me as such ^^
Well this is odd, before when I restarted it would make no difference, I'd still get the same errors when attempting to install the VLC packages. However, after getting the above error, I restarted and tried again, and now it installed ok. So it seems that by breaking Synaptic more than the problem I already had...it somehow fixed it....I'm not actually sure what I did but....hey...so long as it works ^^
Have you tried reinstalling synaptic? Just a thought...It might help.
