    update manager errors

    hi all,
    i recently added a new nvidia gt610 graphics card and second monitor. both seem to be working fine.
    since adding them, i now get errors from update mgr. have read lots of threads, tried clean, fix-broken, and autoremove.. nothing has worked.. i could use some help.
    my goal is to be able to dial into work via our vpn and remote desktop using the dual monitors, which is the setup i have at work.
    i have installed NetExtender, and it seems to work. I have not been able to get a remote desktop using remmina after connecting with NetExtender.
    Sorry, i think this is really 2 problems, and i am not sure if i should create 2 threads, or keep this in one..
    For the update mgr problem i am having, here is what comes back from sudo apt-get upgrade
    Code:
    :~$ sudo apt-get upgrade

    What happens when you do:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get -f install

    dist-upgrade will sort it.

    Re: update manager errors

    i had already tried the update and -f install.. they did not work.. still said 30 packages have been kept back.
    the dist-upgrade looks to be working..
    thanks for all your help !!
    now if i can get the rdp to work, i will be in great shape.
