Synaptics Package Manager question
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 26, 2009
Recently upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04 and find that opening firefox causes the computer to freeze up.
Thought I would Reinstall Firefox to see if that would resolve the wenissue.
Went into Synaptics, clicked on Installed and Marked all the firefox modules for reinstallation.
Can't find an OK icon or an Apply icon -- no way to initiate the Reinstall.
What am I missing?

Can't access Synaptics Package Manager in Ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2014
I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed on my PC via Oracle's VirtualBox and need to remove software from Linux. I am not having any success with sudo apt-get remove <name> so I tried to access Synaptics Package Manager but got this message when I tried to open it:
E: Malformed line 54 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
Go to the repository dialogue to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and this was the feedback:

[SOLVED] How do you restore Synaptics Package Manager to the menu?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 11, 2013
The Synaptics Package Manager has disappeared from the Administration menu.
No clue how that happened.
Software Manager shows that it is installed. There is no option to check or uncheck the "Show" option, because the Synaptics Package Manager does not show up there, or in any of the other menu catagories.
I'm still a rookie and have tried editing the menu options.
The only thing I can figure out, is that this was caused by an update.
Similar to the loss of the middle mouse function that used to paste highlighted text. I don't know what to do about that either, as subsequent updates have not restored the middle mouse function.
Is this operator error?
Gentoo/Sabayonrelated question about package manager
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 24, 2009
I wonder whether portage has a stable branch and a unstable branch of application packages (like Debian has sid, testing and stable).
I am not too familiar with Gentoo and Sabayon's "source-based" application management and the distros themselves, so I'm still exploring this aspect of Linux.

Can someone tell me what the little ubuntu symbol means next to certain packages in the Synaptic Package Manager? Is that a package ubuntu recommends, a primary package, etc?

An unresolvable problem occurred while initialising the package information.
Please report this bug for the 'update-manager' package and try to include the following error message:
