after initating the update and i enter my pass word, update stops and an error box comes up stating that it is unable to update because there is more than one synaptic manager running, i have restarted and get the same results, and to my knowledge there is nothing else running in the background. does anyone have any ides as to what i should do next.

How are you attempting to do the update?

Try running this code in terminal...

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Great, you shouldn't have any more problems with it then.
