I just did the update and am getting 20 packages. It looks at least
to me to be working right.

There appear to be no errors on the updates. I guess in fact I am using
bad resorces for the other things. Now the Update Manager is giving me
152 updates. I think maybe it will be ok tomorrow :-)

Why not use the Synaptic Package Manager? does it show them?
I think thunderbird is mozilla-thunderbird.

good luck,

I suspect we all will :-)

You still might want to check your repo & select an alternate, perhaps

ftp.utexas.edu

You can check using Applications|Software Sources|Download from|Other
and check 'United States'. Note: 'Select Best Server' isn't very
reliable either; it just uses ping to test the servers. For instance, I
just checked and it selects Thailand as my best 'th.archive.ubuntu.com'
and that's just plain silly -- I use ftp.usf.edu (University of San
Francisco) as it's nearby and has never failed me yet. Plus it's about
30 miles from me & has always provided full speed downloads.

It would be useful to get help if you paste the output that you get
from "cat /etc/apt/sources.list" at a terminal window.

The problem was with the source for the software. All of a sudden I
got a request to send me 130 new updates and after that I was able to
apt-get install joe and thunderbird.
