Yesterday, Update Manager worked fine for me and Synaptic has always
worked on Jaunty for me.
I recall you posting that your password is very complex, is there a
chance that maybe you typed in the wrong password? Also, on my Jaunty,
I only have 1 password and it's the same as my user account and root
authorization. Did you enable the root account password?
