Synaptic not working properly?

Postby paulj » 2018-06-19 17:56

Newbie here Just installed Debian 9.4 using the net install cd-rom burned to a usb drive.

Everything went fairly smoothly except for wireless networking which turned out to be fairly simple just downloaded the driver package and installed it from the command line.

The problem seems to be with Synaptic and the Software manager.

First I get error messages when updating repositories. The error seems to be with some key file not readable by the user.

Also, I tried to install sabnzbd from Software and it fails, saying it cant't find the repository but I checked and the repository is in my sources.list

Any ideas?
