problem with adept on kubuntu 7.10 amd64 and Intel x86.
Have you tried running apt-get instead to see if the problem is adept or apt?
First, run 'sudo apt-get update' and see what you get.
Then, run 'sudo apt-get upgrade' and see if that works.
Then pick a package you want to install, say it's synaptic, and try
'sudo apt-get install synaptic' and see what happens.
If all these succeed, then you have an adept problem. I decided I
don't like adept and use synaptic for my gui. Since you just
installed it with the third test above, you it. ;-)
If there was a problem, you have a problem with you apt-get/dpkg
setup. Post the results here and we can probably help you.
