(SOLVED) Synaptic broken - cannot modify anything

Postby stephengo » 2011-12-12 09:29

broken synaptic

i have changed the "server" from the Main Server to a server in Japan via "Select Best Server"

then after that, I could not anymore check the empty boxes that said Main, contrib and non-free.

furthermore, on the "Updates" tab, the boxes "proposed updates" and "security updates" are un-checkable too

i am wondering what happened. I do not want to have a broken synaptic package manager running on Debian 6.03

thank you.
