Errors in Synaptic Package Manager


When I go into Synaptic Package Manager, I get the following errors.

Code:
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://security.ubuntu.com hoary-security/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_hoary-security_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)

I think some repositories may be missing. Does anyone know how I could resore the missing repositories, or how I could get rid of this error? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Did you change your /etc/apt/sources.list file recently? Try hitting reload in Synaptic, then exit the application and restart it. If that fixes the problem, it's because when you change your /etc/apt/sources.list file, synaptic initially won't have updated the package list based on those changes and detects this, thus prints those errors. Hope that fixes it.

Yes I did.

It kinda sorta did. I'm still getting this error:
Code:
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/hoary/multiverse/source/Sources.gz: Sub-process bzip2 returned an error code (2)
And this error:
Code:
W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://security.ubuntu.com hoary-security/universe Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_hoary-security_universe_binary-i386_Packages)
W: Duplicate sources.list entry ftp://ftp.nerim.net stable/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.nerim.net_debian-marillat_dists_stable_main_binary-i386_Packages)
W: Duplicate sources.list entry ftp://ftp.nerim.net unstable/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.nerim.net_debian-marillat_dists_unstable_main_binary-i386_Packages)
W: Duplicate sources.list entry ftp://ftp.nerim.net testing/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.nerim.net_debian-marillat_dists_testing_main_binary-i386_Packages)
Is there a sources.list file somewhere that I could use to get my list back to default? I did a google search but I came up with many confusing results.

Thank you for your reply.

This is my sources.list (and this Ubuntu install is just two days old). The only changes I made to it from it's original state was commenting out the Ubuntu CD as a source and uncommenting out the Ubuntu universe repositories.

Code:
# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 5.04 _Hoary Hedgehog_ - Release i386 (20050407)]/ hoary main restricted


deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary main restricted
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary main restricted

## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
## distribution.
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-updates main restricted
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-updates main restricted

## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'universe'
## repository.
## N.B. software from this repository is ENTIRELY UNSUPPORTED by the Ubuntu
## team, and may not be under a free licence. Please satisfy yourself as to
## your rights to use the software. Also, please note that software in
## universe WILL NOT receive any review or updates from the Ubuntu security
## team.
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary universe
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary universe

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security main restricted
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security main restricted

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security universe
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security universe

As a tag-on to this thread, I have been having problems with security updates not being authenticated.

All repositories are there. I did add multiverse at one point then removed it when I found I didn't need it! Haven't changed anything else, but when the latest 3 security updates came through it warned me that all 3 were unable to be authenticated. They are the main package things (gedit and system kernel).

Any ideas?
