Ok done that and a box came up with this message:
Quote
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'.

You should enable the "backports" repo to ensure you get the latest packages (such as firefox). If you open Update Manager, the click on the View menu, then select Software Sources. In the window that pops up, check the "backports" box (in the middle of the window). Next, go to either the PPA or Additional Repositories button (not sure which), and look for the line that talks about Medibuntu, and uncheck it, then click OK, then click on the Refresh button to update all sources. That should give you some more package updates, and should clear up the issue with the medibuntu repositories being offline (they don't exist anymore).
