[Solved] Cannot open mint installer

I currently am unable to open mint installer (The graphical package manager, not the live disc installer), or synaptic package manager. Running "gksu mintinstall" returns various codes, this time it was "3269" with the entire output being:
add_categories took 3.221 ms
build_matched_packages took 0.568 ms
3269

I am also having this problem with synaptic package manager, both ask me for a password, then I can see they they do something for around a second or so, then nothing. :?

Please run the following command on the terminal and share the output here. You can copy text to/from the terminal, see its Edit menu.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Then run:

Code: Select all

mintinstall
And again share the output here if it still doesn't work.
