    Post your sources.list. You might need a new one.

    Open terminal and run "gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list". Then replace everything with this:

    -----START---- (do not include this line)

    Re: synaptic manager problem

    Just check line 75 in your sources.list for any errors.Correct those and you are good to go.Open sources.list using
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
