I have been out of touch for a few weeks-- however, when I looked for a message from Synaptic Update Notifier this is what I got:
"An error occured verifying upgrade, this may be caused by held packages.
Do Not update!
Check Synaptic or try again later"
I then went directly to Synaptic and reloaded the information there, did the "3-step" and when I hit "MARK" I received this message:
"Error, PackageProblemResolver: Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages"
I am running 2009.4 and everything was up-to-date about Christmas or New Years. This situation has existed for the last one or two weeks; I keep waiting for it to resolve itself, but it hasn't yet.
I am using KDE 3.5 on this desktop
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated
