Syntax problem?

Code:
apt-get install synaptic
As root, will install/update the package.

Thanks Linuxwin2 and Caravel for your answers.

After a lot of work I found may be the problem is in the server according to this output when I tried to repair the packages:

**********************************
could not solve "mx.archive.ubuntu.com"

W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored or old ones used instead
W: not using locking for read only lockfile /var/lib/dpkg/lock
E: Unable to write to /var/cache/apt
E: the package list or status file coul not be parsed or opened.

Finished please ENTER

****************************************

Since I also tried to run de Update Manager without any results, and changing to the United States server the update was possible, I think all my problems are in the Server for Mexico, and because when I reload Ubuntu 11.10 works for a moment and then after any action as "update" the system or follow your instructions in the terminal, all the problem appear again.

How can I change to the Ubuntu Main server or to the United States server?

In the Ubuntu forum You can read a lot of complains becouse the server for Mexico is not working.

Thank you for your knowledge and help.

Eugenio

Hello again
I found elsewere a tip.
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
here goes the output:

******************************************
eu@eu-Vostro-330:~$ sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
[sudo] password for eu:
Sorry, try again.

Setting up gtk2-engines-pixbuf (2.24.6-0ubuntu5) ...

************************************************

The error message:
(gksudo:3423): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

does not appear now, but...

Synaptic only stays an instant in the screen and disappears, only that now ther is not an error message.

This is annoying.

Please any other idea?

Thank you

Eugenio
