Exclamation Synaptic Repositories


If anyone can help me get these thinks working properly it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and patience.

edit: Where do I find the urls to add to the Synaptic repositories? I just tried to download Pidgin ,but it wasn't listed.

edit again: I'm getting a new error in Synaptic:

Failed to fetch Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)

No, not to my knowledge. I could have just rebooted my machine and I would still get that message.
