Thank you for your help. I have followed all your steps but I'm not yet sure if the problem is sorted. When I refreshed the Update Manager, I got this message:
"Could not download all repository indexes
The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available, an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise, the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address is correct in 'Repositories' under 'Settings'."
Then it goes on to say I'm up to date. Again, I don't know what this means. Perhaps I'll need to wait until an update is needed?
It looks like it's worked as it states you are now up to date. The error message refers to a repository that it has tried to contact but has failed for some reason. Either the software stored there has been ignored for the time being or it has found it somewhere else and installed from there.
Try this - Go to Menu/Administration/Synaptic Package Manager. (This is what Update Manager actually does for you when you fire it up )
Key in your password and authenticate. You now have Superuser privileges.
Click on Edit and look down the list for 'Fix broken packages'. Click on that. Look at the very bottom of the box and the message "Successfully fixed dependency problems!" should appear.
Then click Edit again and click on "Reload Package Information". When that finishes, close Synaptic.
Hopefully the error message should disappear.
Edit: Also - click on Update Manager and hit 'Refresh'. If a tick appears, you are good to go.
