    Synaptic package manager question

    Anyone using synaptic who has changed the source list from Raring to Saucy?
    I am getting updated and installing new packages with the Synaptic Package Manager, but when I select Settings > Repositories nothing comes up.

    If you have synaptic installed see what you get.

    Re: Synaptic package manager question

    This has been a common problem over the last several release when using this command:

    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/raring/saucy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
    to update the repositories. Use the solution give in this post.

    I plan on adding this to the Common Problems section of my siicky in the next couple of days.

    I also just noticed Software Updater (which I do not use in development) clicking the settings does nothing.

    Thanks Cariboo907 this worked. It took me a while to reply as there was a lot to edit.
    By the way I also had Quantal, Precise etc in the file which i left alone.

    By the way I do not see the "Solved" option to mark post as solved.

    Re: Synaptic package manager question

    I think I have found a better solution,
    reinstalling Reinstalled the following packages:
    python-apt-common (0.8.8ubuntu6)
    This seems to work as I had edited out raring for saucy and reinstallint the above put back raring.

    On my system /usr/share/python-apt/templates/Ubuntu.info, lists all the versions back to warty, I just left it the way it is, just added the new bit. This is a fresh install of Raring upgraded to Saucy.

    I would suggest not recommending the use of "sudo gedit ..."
    While not extremely bad, unlike the recent past the sudo gedit command will now use the users config instead of roots so probably should be avoided.
