I originally posted this in a stickied thread that Texstar started, but thought I should maybe move it to a new thread.
I tried the update technique Texstar described and it worked 100% A-ok on one machine, but my home machine is different.
I am running into the following errors:
First: After reloading in Synaptic, choosing upgrade, then apply, I get a quick (less than 1 sec) "downloading packages" message. This turns quickly into a new popup window "applying" for about 5 seconds. Then, I got an error message "231" something or other. I got this 231 message about five or six times after repeating the procedure, but now I don't get the 231 message though the other messages are the same. Nothing updates at all. Nothing is changed.
Second: When doing a repository speed test, I get the message: "Unable to retrieve new sources.list file. Verify internet connection and try again."
Anyone with any ideas to help me out??
