    form a command line you can also try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    (it does the same thing as the 'Reload' button)
    and it'll print an error message to the console.

    Just checking.... but have you clicked the 'Refresh button' when that box comes up?
    And to enter those commands go to Applications >> Accessories >> Terminal
