I keep getting this error when I try to tick the box to add

The list of applications is not available

Click on 'Reload' to load it. To reload the list you need a working Internet connection.

What does it mean by Reload though I exit and retry Add & Remove to the same problem I have even restarted.

Add/ Remove is a very limited package manager anyhow, go to system then to administration and then to synaptic package manager.
Synaptic is sort of like a more advanced version of add/remove, make sure to hit its refresh button to keep you library fresh.
you can also use it to add extra repositories too, go up to settings and then to repositories, then in there check off the boxes except the ones marked source code in the first and second tab.
again hit refresh and the repositories will be more open :D

just hop into synaptic, it might actually help with add/ remove not being able to see the packages.
Like i said synpatic is more advanced, but its also quite simple at the same time

Can you open a terminal, type in

sudo apt-get update
and post the output here?

that works too, though hitting refresh in synaptic is basically the same thing

your repositories should be updated then, add remove should work fine again.
But please do eventually ween yourself from add/remove.
Granted its a great tool for beginners and can give you the basics, but synaptic and apt in command line mode are way more diverse.
eventually you may not even need synaptic, apt in its command line mode is very easy to use on its own.
