    [SOLVED] Add/Remove Program List Empty

    I started up ubuntu 8.10 this morning and was going to add an app, but when I went to the add/remove programs the list was empty.

    Any advice on how to correct this?

    Try reloading the package list in the synaptic package manager.
    Or i think you delete up all the software sources.

    Same problem here. Have tried reloading through synaptic and apt-get update. Still empty.

    I presume a security update broke this?
