Virtualbox installation failure and consequent failure of Synaptic Package Manager

Thank you again for your response at 14 Sep 2007 21:01:39.

No, I did not attempt to reinitialize the package information.

"sudo apt-get update" worked.  I.e., it executed with a couple of warnings
(one relating to VirtualBox).  Subsequently I was able to restart the
Synaptic package mgr. properly.

I will now wait to see whether the VirtualBox owners react to my inquiry
before trying again to install that.

Best wishes, Henry
