synaptic error msg: repositories?


hi there,
when i start synaptic, i get a long error message:

can anyone help me decipher this? Basically what does stat mean?
I think it happened just after i added repositories:

In Mepis I got similar errors when I started synapitc because certain repositories were not used anymore, I went to the repository list and un checked those and I don't get the message anymore. hope this helps.

Click reload in Synaptic or run apt-get update any time you change repositories.
