Software updater not working

Running PM4 32bit

As per the title plus get debi, software manager and synaptic won’t work.
They either don’t respond at all or flash on the screen then disappear.

As always, any help much appreciated.


Any errors reported by:

sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get upgrade


What happens if you try to run the software updater from the command line (terminal) with:


or synaptic from the command line (terminal):


Update and upgrade worked fine

update-manager ran but returned

~ $ update-manager
ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for Dbusmenu
ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for Unity
WARNING:root:can not import unity GI cannot import name Dbusmenu

Synaptic also ran ok

Whilst running these and posting here Chrome crashed (5 times actually) and then nothing would open or run so I went for a reboot and also put the kettle on so I missed what but something couldn’t be mounted so I chose f to fix the problem and now everything seems to be working again.

Hmm … self healing eh :slight_smile:

Dunno. but it seems to be working now. :smiley:

Glad to hear it :slight_smile:
