    update-manager problem

    Hi,

    this message appears during updating using update manager.


    A unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

    Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

    'Eroblem parsing dependency Depends, E:Error occurred while processing btnx (NewVersion1), Eroblem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/repoubuntusoftware.info_dists_harty_all_binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

    It just happened today. There was no problem last week update. Need help.

    Re: update-manager problem

    Open up your /etc/apt/sources.list and change
    Code:
     deb http://repoubuntusoftware.info harty all
    to
    Code:
     deb http://repoubuntusoftware.info hardy all
    You can make these changes by opening a terminal and
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    make the change and save, then back in the terminal
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update

    Re: update-manager problem

    Hi this helped me too..

    However after an apt-get update i noticed that this line also contained the 'harty' typo and was causing an error.

    "deb http://repoubuntusoftware.info harty all"

    This was one added by Ultamatix...

    I suggest a find replace to make sure you get them all...

    I am interested how they got there..

    This solved the problem for me, also. Maybe ultamatix should be taken off the system until they get it figured out. Thanks a bunch for the solution. Bill
