Updater won't update...

Postby mrbison on Fri Oct 14, 2011 10:51 am

Hmmm.... my updater won't load updates, no matter what I've tried. It used to work and now suddenly stopped. Here's what it tells me when I refresh/ restart it:

Could Not Refresh the List of Packages

ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR
E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.


What's the deal?

I don't know if this is going to help, but the update manager has always seemed sort of goofy to me, so I goto the terminal, and type in sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and the update happens, followed by a confirmation if I want to install everything selected above.

If the result is the same as before, copy and paste it so we can look at it verbatium.
Um... you have a back-up copy,right?
