    Packages System broken, software updater crashes, how to fix?

    Hey Guys,
    I am experiencing very annoying problem with the software updater and packages manager. It says I have problem with thirty party sources. Idisabled them but it doest work.
    I have the updated version of Ubuntu, the 13.10 and due to this problem I cannot use the software updater, nor I can install or unistall software.
    I pasted some outputs from my shell. they might be useful.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Re: Packages System broken, software updater crashes, how to fix?

    Looks like a Rhythmbox 8 PPA broke your system.
    You should probably tell the PPA maintainer that their software broke your system.
    PPAs are supported by the maintainer, not by the community forums.

    Here are a couple threads from earlier this week on how to fix it:
