Gusty - Can't update, add/remove programs, syn...etc


When ever I go to one of the places listed above I get an error like this:

Quote:
A unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:The package mfc240ccupswrapper needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.'
What exactly do I do to solve this?

Do as it says. Then maybe a dev will be able to tell you if it's a real problem, and/or give you a fix/workaround.

Well, I would but I don't really know what to do or where to find this mfc cups wrapper. I'm still new at this.


EDIT: I also submitted that bug thing but nothing's come up so far.

Hi,

The package manager needs to reinstall a package which no longer exists. What version of Ubuntu are you running? 8.04? There have been many changes made in 8.04 and the package has probably been renamed. Instead of reinstalling, remove the package, then search for one with a similar name and install that.

This is a printer package right? Do you have a Brother printer?
