*Well I will agree it may not be the way to fix the problem...But I was 
trying to find out what it was, yet I did not find it even with some 
help, yes there may have been something that was stopping me from using 
apt-get or synaptic, it may have been in use but that I could not find 
out what it was...
I just did not go and reboot, since I was downloading the latest version 
2.7 of UE, but after it was finished, and I was through using my system, 
it was shutdown...Later on booted it back up, and it did tell me that 
there was a file that had not been completed, to use apt-get --configure 
-a, after doing so, everything is working just fine...

So I hope this explains to all, as to what my problem was...

Thanks to everyone who responded back to me...
