Hi yall,

I am having issues with apt, as per the above subject.

"apt-get -f install" does not clean up this wee mess.

Um, a quick search via google was of no joy, except to point out that
this does occur once in a bit.

Hi H,
It is best if you can select and paste the exact message so that we can
get you started in the right direction.


I was in synaptic when this-the above happened, so I went down into a console & then stuff did install. Ergo a problem with synaptic.

I've uninstalled & reinstalled synaptic & now the issue is with apt not reading my updated .source list; apt installed an older version of synaptic .

But, I need to pack & go on holiday *YAY*, so I will attend to this stuff when I get back.

Thanks for your help &


Haralambos :-)
