View Full Version : [SOLVED] Ubuntu Software Center Problems

April 24th, 2011, 11:21 PM
I am a new ubuntu user, I downloaded it because it was recommended over windows for programming uses.
I am new to Ubuntu, and everytime I try and download something from the Ubuntu software center an error pops up saying:
"Requires installation of untrusted packages
The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources."

it does this for everything I try and download. If anyone has a solution could you please message me?

open the synaptic package manager from the system > administration menu and click reload.
then, close synaptic and try again to install through the software center

- or just use Synaptic in general and forget about Software Centre.
