Neal,apt upgrade looks to see what version of synaptic you have installed in order to determine whether it should run or not and guess what? He removed synaptic so apt upgrade is just going to exit. What he needs to do is download and manually install the old version of synaptic from the following link then he can run apt-upgrade! http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/pclinuxos/temp/synaptic-0.57.2-20pclos2009.i586.rpmCan you please instruct him how to manually install a rpm package please?
