mint update no longer working

Postby punkysfamily on Thu Jul 23, 2009 4:58 pm

So when I click on the open lock symbol to update. The windows opens, it thinks for a minute. After that the window stays grayed out. If i try to close the window it will not close unless i kill it. When i hover my mouse over the open lock it says there are 12 updates. So i tried reinstalled it no difference. Nothing in the window will do anything none of the drop done menus nothing then i have to kill it to get it to close. I don't know how to fix it. any help would be great thanks.

punky

try this for another route...

under Menu > Administration > click on "Synaptic Package Manager"

When that loads, (after entering your password) click on "Reload" (top left button). When it updates the repositories, then "Mark All Upgrades", then if any appear, click on "Apply"

I go this route sometimes when I, too, have trouble with mintupdate.
