After updating to 8.04 I have 'lost' my Add/Remove and Synaptic.
When selected the file load icon shows then just disappears and the program fails to load.

I'll be watching your thread. I am having the same kind of problem.

Check the results of the following command. The only thing you should see on one of the lines is

127.0.1.1 your_computers_name

If there is anything else attached to the end of your computer's name then it is incorrect.

To fix it:


sudo cp /etc/hosts /etc/hosts.bak1
gksudo gedit /etc/hosts

and put in the line I wrote in bold.

Checked your suggestions, all correct. No change, still not working.

Worked like a charm for me.
I had "127.0.1.1 your_computer's_name.local"

Thanks a million!
