Update Manager not working.

Postby DavidNW » Mon Jan 14, 2013 12:31 pm

Hi all,

Installed Mint 14 a couple of days back. However, the update manager does not work. I see the update shield on the bottom task bar, I click on it and it displays that there are 343 updates to download, the wallet manager asks me to enter my password, I do, and then nothing happens.

Many thanks,

You're not alone with this problem. Been having trouble running updates on my system on M13 for a few days. From the other similar posts looks like a problem with the servers where the repositories live? Hang in there, I'm sure the team is working hard on a solution.
