Synaptic Package Manager problems prioxy error

Since upgrading to Feisty Fawn a few days ago I have been having problems with Synaptic Package Manager. I had messed up the repositories but I think I have fixed that problem but I cannot install or uninstall programs because I get a privoxy error. I have copied down the information from the terminal (I could copy and paste it) as best I could:
Setting up privoxy (3.0.6-1) . . .
chown: privoxy.adm': invalid user
dpkg: error processing privozy (--configure)
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Error were encountered while processing:
E: sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
A package failed to install. Trying to recover:
Setting up privoxy (3.0.6-1) . . .
chown: privozy.adm' :invalid user
dpkg error processing privoxy (--configure)
Subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Can anyone help me figure out how I messed up?
