Sometime, possibly when going from Alpha 2 to Beta 1 of 12:10, the issue
must have been picked up for the package manager now works.  I always work
with the tatest development edition, because I like to follow the leading
edge of a new offering, but I run the risk of this sort of issue - namely
something quite serious gets broken.  So in future I shall always work with
the release version of the preceding version as a back up.  I regard the
unstable development edition of the latest Ubuntu as safer to use than the
most venerable offerings of the Gaesware Empire.  I can take the risk
becuase I use Ubuntu for my own private purposes and I can bear the risk of
some failure.

  Package manager broken Ubuntu 12.10

Status in “apt” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  If you click on package manager Ubuntu 12.10, over the last 4 days, it
  says that it is broken and though it tries to repair itself it
  doesn't.  The catalog is corrupt in some way. Packages cannot be
  installed. Can it be repaired, please.

  I update Ubuntu 12.10 abot about 04:00 GMT every day.

  This is getting a bit bureaucratic.
