Re: [SOLVED] Synaptic and Update Managers screwed in UP5

Thank you, this fixed my problem too.

Re: update errors..grrrrr

found the problem!!, system was sitting behind a web filtering gateway server- connected LAn connection direct to router- bingo!!- dont have time to sortout port issues with web filtering software (DANSGUARDIAN) easier just to plug straight to modem/router.
