I would say that all your packages are up to date. If in doubt, you can check what version you have installed in Synaptic, then cross-check the current version for Jessie at packages.debian.org.

Something that was not mentioned, or maybe it was, and the OP missed it, and me as well,
But anyway,
IMPORTANT:
After editing the /apt/etc/sources.list file, one all ways must also
run :
Code: Select all
apt update

as su or root.
OR, if you are using synaptic package manager,
then "click" the "edit" > reload package info , which does the same as
'apt update'

I've been struggling with 'package updater' ---snip---

If it is this "package upgrade" thing , then I have no idea, that seems to be
another 'new feature'.

That is correct. Is this not mentioned in the "Help" for Synaptic?

The answer is here:
(Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

------------------------
1397BC53640DB551Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/d ... le/Release Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)
Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

and this
Code: Select all
 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/d ... le/Releas
is not a valid Debian repository.
Please read this, again , even if you all ready have, or if you have not read it :

Garry, given his obstinate refusal across multiple threads to provide diagnostic information or implement any suggestions, why do you continue to feed this troll?

Ahhh--yes, you know Google stopped providing 32-bit Google Chrome years ago? This is getting suspicious.

I don't know,......bored I guess :mrgreen:

I am thinking it might be best if the OP tries to find someone locally in his/here
area, and have a qualified technician re-install Debian, or the distro of choice,...
Even though they were a IT expert, that is "was", and it seems like now they
are going to need "professional" or "voluntary" help.
Ok here we offer "voluntary" help, but this seems to be a case were it needs to be "hands on" or in person, in other words a real tech, in person, it does not take a hour to do the install, when it is someone that knows how.
I am finding with my eyes deteriorating, there are many things I used to be able to do
well, and with out any bodies help, but sadly that is changing, and also it is another topic,.
I do not have all the benefits, and kinds of help that "vets" have, but the OP should be
able to find a repair shop in their area, yellow pages, or google.
I suppose I feel sorry for him/her,.. I am sure this is frustrating.

Yes, I imagined you did. But I think it would be more help to the OP to suggest he just reinstalls and not follows up his obsession with updating sources. He is oblivious to the 90% telling him to reinstall and just listens to the minority who assist him with updating sources, which is fruitless and ultimately no help to his situation.

I'm trying to get some help from local friends who might have a usb cd drive to reinstall with. Honestly, I was trying to get help with making this installation work, but I think ppl are misinterpreting my lack of progress or understanding of what ppl are saying as "troll"ing or something. The response is shameful and a classic example of how an ex-human services pro like me was able to make a career shift directly into it work in '98......really, ppl....I suppose I'll just get more sarcasm and be tagged as judgmental....

as to the issue of reinstalling....I've been digging into this netbook's bios trying to figure out how to enable 'usb' booting, but it's not readily apparent. Currently, I've asked a couple of neighbor friends to see if either has time and access to a usb cd drive to use in reinstalling linux on this thing. I'm still waiting for their replies, so, with any luck, I won't need to bug y'all any more with apparently dumb questions or further "trolling"
