Hi JV,

You could also check the sources.list file to make sure that the
repositories are not commented out. It is located in the /etc/apt/
directory (/etc/apt/sources.list). Have you tried running "sudo apt-get
update", then a "sudo apt-get upgrade" from the terminal to see if that
might work?

Hi JV,

An easy way to graphically check your repositories is in

System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager
Settings -> Repositories

There is also a "Reload" button that should update the values to the
latest ones.

To find out command line, try "man apt-get"(?)
