Software Manager says I don't have internet connection

Post by dkrasey » Wed Jul 20, 2016 3:40 pm

Installed LMDE2 on my Mint 17.3 in Oracle VB 5.0.2 with 5.0.10 extension. If I try to add software from Software Manager, it says I don't have an internet connection, yet firefox comes up fine and I can browse. All other Mint releases in VB work fine. I'm new to LMDE, but have used Mint other Ubuntu distros for a couple years.

UPDATE: Never mind... Update manager updated a lot of packages, now it works.
OS :Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64-bit
Cinnamon Version: 3.8.8
Linux Kernel : 4.15.0-29-generic
Processor : AMD FX-4150 Quad-Core x2
Memory : 16 GB
Hard Drive : SSD 250GB, HD500 GB
Graphics Card : AMD/ATI RS780L [Radeon 3000]
