    Synaptic

    When I try to look at Repositories under settings I get "The repository information has changed. You have to click on the "Reload" button for your changes to take effect", click on reload and try again and get the same thing.
    Any one know why ?

    Re: Synaptic

    I suspect you are getting errors for at least one repository and it isn't fully updating.

    Close Synaptic, open a terminal, and run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    You will probably see some errors. If they aren't obvious, post them and we can help you out.

    I noticed the errors before but didn't think it would effect synaptic.
    Heres what I got:
    Err http://extras.ubuntu.com precise/main Sources
    404 Not Found
    Err http://extras.ubuntu.com precise/main i386 Packages
    404 Not Found

    ADDED: Do NOT run the upgrade command until you read my next post.

    It looks like it's in the "Proposed" repository. See mc4man's post.

    Open Synaptic or Software Sources, go to the Settings, Repositories: Updates Other Software tab and untick the "proposed" independent repository. That will remove it from your sources.list. If you can't find it, you can directly edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and remove or comment the line(s) referencing 'proposed' 'extras/independent'.

    Try Reload (or apt-get update) and it should work.

    Re: Synaptic

    You may have run the wrong command, as you are referencing the next version of Ubuntu (Precise) and you probably aren't using it.

    If you ran a dist upgrade to the development version after Oneric was released you ended up with Precise Pangolin. In any case, ALL your repositories are currently for Precise Pangolin and NOT any earlier release. The only one giving errors at the moment are the ones in proposed extras/indepent.

    If you mean to be using Pangolin, you should be posting in the Ubuntu + 1 forum.

    If you are in an earlier version and update your packages with Precise Pangolin ones I'm not sure what you are going to end up with.

    Extras is the independent sources - get rid of them in software sources

    I originally wrote the post to deselect extras from the Other Software tab. For some reason when I looked at the error messages again I saw "proposed" - I don't think I was working on another thread at the time and I'm pretty sure the images haven't changed. It may just be late.
