Rhythmbox Magnatune error on Ubuntu Feisty

I'm using Rhythmbox 0.10.0 on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. So far it's been great. I would like to use it to access Magnatunes, but it doesn't do anything when I click that feature in the menu.

I launched Rhythmbox from a command line to see what happens when I try Magnatunes, and I get this output...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/magnatune/", line 272, in __load_catalogue_read_cb
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/_xmlplus/sax/", line 226, in close
    self.feed("", isFinal = 1)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/_xmlplus/sax/", line 220, in feed
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/_xmlplus/sax/", line 38, in fatalError
    raise exception
xml.sax._exceptions.SAXParseException: <unknown>:1:0: no element found
I've done a few google searches, but can't find any relevant info. I've also gone into Synaptic and looked for any dependencies I might be missing and can't find any related packages that look appropriate.

It looks like there's a python piece missing? I have python2.5 and python2.5-minimal installed.

It seems as if Rhythmbox is having an error about not being able to handle an error?

Any hints as to how I can get Magnatunes working?

I've upgraded to a backport of Rhythmbox 0.11.x and still have the same problem. I get a flash of a page for Magnatunes and then it tries to download the catalog but hangs with the same terminal output as stated above.

Any ideas?

Nevermind. It's working now. I've not done anything differently that I can tell, but it seems to have worked itself out.

Thanks to those who read and considered...

I've just had exactly the same problem, with both the magnatune and jamendo plugins, only in my case the problem wouldn't work itself out and I had to find the solution myself

It seems to have something to do with the magnatune/jamendo databases (an error in the db download process or an error in the db itself???), because _deleting_ the old one solves the problem.

Justo go to ./gnome2/rhythmbox/ in your home directory and delete the jamendo and/or magnatune subdirectories, or the database files in them. Rhytymbox will then download new ones and all should work well again.

I run fedora 7 with gnome 2.18, but I suppose the solution is good for ubuntu, too.
