I am running Ubuntu 12.10 mainly because I want to try steam on it. I am trying to update it and such to get it to working condition. Updating the software worked just fine. However, when I tried to get to the Update Manager, the only option that came up was "Software Updater" Even when I typed in the search bar "Update Manager" I got no results just Software Updater.

I also tried to install my AMD graphics card (driver) and everytime I tried to install it I get this...

Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for details:/var/log/jockey.log

How do I resolve this?
