i just got this error in the synaptic package manager:


Failed to check for installed and available applications

This is a major failure of your software management system. Please check for broken packages with synaptic, check the file permissions and correctness of the file '/etc/apt/sources.list' and reload the software information with: 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get install -f'.

what's going on?

Click Applications > Accessories > Terminal, and then run the following commands 1 line at a time.


cat /etc/apt/sources.list > ~/Desktop/sources.txtPlease upload this as an attachment in another post :)

THEN, run
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -f
