Alright.. well - I feel stupid now; apperently my updates were turned off... for an odd reason - therefore I just had to click them on. My post is now pointless... sorry for your time.

I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon). And I installed it once - but was "updated" to the new one; this caused the OS to malfunction and fail to connect me to the internet (I've herd this is a problem with 8.10). Anyways - I reinstalled 7.10, but now when I try and play music/vids it asks me to install the GStreamer plugins (when I first installed 7.10 I did this and it accepted fine). How ever, now every time I try and select them to Download it gives me two messages:
1. "Confirm Instalation of restricted software" blah. blah. blah.. I click "confirm"
2. "The list of applications is not Available: Reload or cancel"
I've tried to reload it - but it still returns with the same two screens.

Any help?

It is good thing that you solved yourself,but that is not reason why Im writing this.I just want to say that maybe you can think of upgrading Gutsy to Hardy because Gutsy will come to the End of Life in April.
