how to fix problem with Update Manager and Synaptic

"First check your sources list and make sure that the repository does not have "universe" at the end. You can open that file by running in terminal:
$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
If it does, remove the word "universe" and then click the save button to save the file and close the file.
Open terminal and enter:
$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
You should now be able to run your updates."

If this doesn't work for you then please post a copy of your /etc/apt/sources.list file here. If it does work, then please confirm here so others can refer to it in future.
