    Re: Package manager died

    ok try

    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    add a # to the first line
    so it looks like
    #deb file:/home/saurav/kubuntu-desktop-repacked


    You could also add a # to all the deb-src lines if you don't download the source code

    after that save and exit and run

    sudo apt-get update


    any errors post them here

    Re: Package manager died

    right ok, you blitzed it some how

    Just noticed you also on an unsupported version (to old)

    do this again.

    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    paste in this
    Code:
    ###### Ubuntu Main Repos
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted universe multiverse 
    
    ###### Ubuntu Update Repos
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security main restricted universe multiverse 
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates main restricted universe multiverse 
    
    ###### Ubuntu Partner Repo
    deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner
    then run

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo do-release-upgrade

    That will update you to the12.04 release
