The install and remove manager keep say the list is not updated and I keep reload the list everytime I use it. :(

what's wrong?

You mean the synaptic package manager?

Naturally the list goes out of date from time to time and you have to check for updates.

(I'm pretty much a noob at this but thought I'd try...) in the Add/Remove application there is a tab on bottom left for preferences. In preferences, there is an update tab with boxes to check for system and security updates - make sure they're checked (while you're there make sure you've added 'all apps' and included universe & multiverse stuff...)

what if you go to :==> system - administration - software sources
mark on all boxes
then close
click on reload button
then try to install or remove a program....
