I cannot update my Linux Mint 15 as many system files including Synaptic package mang

The Mint update is also not working. I had run bleach to remove bloated files. could this have removed inmported system files? How do I repair the system doing a full reinstall?

Mint 13 and 17 are still supported and their software repositories are no longer available by the standard methods which is why you can't install software. All this info is available at their web site below.
