When i first boot up the computer the padlock is unlocked, but NOT broken. When I hover the mouse over the padlock it states that there are 72 packages available for update, however when I click on the padlock it breaks (after a few seconds) with the message "cannot update list of packages."

I'm experiencing unpleasant issues with Firefox. Seems it's doing its "RAM HOG" thing on this older machine. Opera's a lot snappier, but no version for MINT is listed at the Opera site, and - again, I can't get into the repository until after I activate that link in the confirming email I haven't yet received.
An aside: I'd been running Feisty and decided to try out the new Firefox 3.0 beta. tsk, tsk, tsk... This morning FF refused to launch. Tried rebooting. Multiple files corrupted kept reboot from happening.
