your package management was fixed at post 59 at the latest. Would you like to tell us what actually fixed the video issue?

I thought that the pkg management system was broken, I misunderstood, I'm sorry.
Nothing I tried fixed the graphics/video issue.
Nothing I tried fixed the GUI issue.
I came to the end of what I could do.

My machine is running Voyager 12.04 a Xubuntu based distro and that's working for now.

No need to be sorry, you didn't misunderstand. It was broken in that the sources.list was malformed and that stopped it working. Once the sources.list was corrected and the system updated that was the end of the package management problem. After that when you couldn't get a package your internet connection, as Tobi pointed out, wasn't working or wasn't connecting to the repository.

I'm just happy you have a working system and that your computer is ok because you seemed to be worried your computer's hardware was breaking down.

Your right I do recall now the internet connection became unresponsive.

I'm very happy now that my computer is ok.
I just replaced the HDD and I was worried that I was going to have to replace the processor.

I have a good internet connection and all is well.
Thanks!
