View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update Manager failing 10.10

March 11th, 2011, 05:01 PM
just recently started having problems with Update Manager. Getting this error on many packages while attempting upgrade.
I receive the same errors when using main or US server setting.

Running 10.10 with 2.6.35-27-generic

i think i had a few hours ago! if your system usable at least to see internet, hold your upgrading mouse. there is something array with the dpkg, apt-get, aptitude, synaptic pkg manager lists, config files! somehow they are using the same files. look/see with aptitude where it is broken, kinda look like windows3.1 (no pun intended.)
post the error so other can help too.
good luck.
