    [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?

    This happened to me twice. Each tine, I'd just installed Adobe Air (in order to run the new BBC iPlayer Desktop application.

    May be coincidental ???

    Reinstalling using ...

    sudo apt-get --reinstall install gnome-app-install

    ... worked both times.

    I had the same problem, also solved by reinstalling. Like Milesey, the last thing I installed before the issue was Adobe Air and the new BBC iPlayer Desktop.
