What package manager are you using? This sounds to me like Ubuntu talk.
(Though others seem to be accepting it, so it's probably just me.)
And what does /etc/apt/sources.list say? Open your favourite editor, e.g.
gedit, kwrite, whatever, even Libre Office (i've just checked!), open the
file and copy and paste the contents in a post.
To give you an idea of roughly what it should look like, mine at present is
below my signature. More labels are recommended.
