Anyone seen this error message??


I made the mistake of trying to reinstall mandrake so i could install the Development packages (I thought it would give an option to install packages but it does not and the install packages option in the menu does not work either) but when i try to update, or install any packages i get "Fatal error occurred: meduim update_source already exists" anyone seen this before and if so how can i fix this?? thanks.

I just tried urpmi.update -a. I dont know if it worked or not.

Re-add your original update source or another one from here.
