The fix appears to have worked although there are still broken level 3 packages.

msm, is this a fresh install? and is it the gnome v.? if is yes to both i would strongly advise you to do the first big update with
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
half way though it will fail, and you'll have to do
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -f install
to correct some of the errors and then again
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

important: in all this process, don't reboot or logout; in the end all the errors should be cleared and you can see here a few "fixes" for your new system http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=76010

Thanks for your reply.

I followed this tutorial when installing LMDE earlier last week: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/497 (although I updated the reps to the ones mentioned earlier in this thread) and did do the sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Under About Gnome it says version 2.30.2

Earlier today I manually updated all level 3 categories listed in Update Manager. Funny, how it works, by doing them 30-50 at a time it worked fine, but it wasn't possible to update it all in one go. Anyway, the system now appears to be fully updated - in any case I tried installing mintupdate-debian and it appears to have worked:

Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get install mintupdate-debian
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  mint-flashplugin-square mint-flashplugin
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  mintupdate
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  mintupdate-debian

Still get the usual error messages re Google and Dropbox, but not sure how to fix those.

You mean those three N: messages? They're not error messages, just 'notices'. If you want to get rid of them, open the directory /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ in Nautilus as administrator and delete the three files with .save extensions.
