Hi Thebuntuway

in terminal enter:

sudo apt-get update

and please post any errors

March 15th, 2012, 07:51 AM
You probably have some package that has loads of dependencies.
To have a look, type sudo aptitude.
That should let you see the problem...

March 15th, 2012, 01:26 PM
i think you have gone to big area . your system saying apt was not found . but for one more time confirmation as Jerry asked give me output of

sudo apt-get update
