Hi Thank you for your message. I did that, and I got an even longer 
error message when updating Synaptic.


Is there anyway to get rid of the duplicates? Plus, for some reason, the 
only place that the whole list of repositories appears is when you call 
it in the Terminal. It doesnt show in either the Synaptic or the 
Software Sources box. I though if you added something to both, it should 
show in both.

Its seems a bit of a mess at the moment.
