    then do
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    and show us the output.

    Hi. I'm guessing you somehow piped the output of wget to the file. The actual contents of the file should be:
    Code:
    ## Medibuntu - Ubuntu 6.06 LTS "dapper drake"
    ## Please report any bug on https://bugs.launchpad.net/medibuntu/
    deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ dapper free non-free
    #deb-src http://packages.medibuntu.org/ dapper free non-free
    You can open the file in gEdit:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
    erase what's there now and paste the correct contents. Save the file, close the text editor, and run this:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude update
    to refresh the repository information; afterwards you should be able to use Synaptic.
