When attempting to open the update-manager from the gui, nothing appears. When attempting it from the terminal, i am getting a weird error i have never seen before. I have reinstalled the update-manager in an attempt to fix it (even with --purge), and no differences.

Here is the output from the terminal:

simen@Ubuntu:~$ update-manager
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/update-manager", line 28, in <module>
from gi.repository import Gtk
File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/gi/__init__.py", line 27, in <module>
from ._gi import _API, Repository
ImportError: No module named _gi

What is those errors caused by? I would need those to be fixed somehow, and can i reinstall pygi somehow? I am not into this sadly enough..

This is 13.04.

Thanks for your attention

To inform later readers: After updating via apt-get with dist-upgrade once again, the error was gone. Locked

The problem isn't with update-manager. The problem is with the pygi installation you're using (it's evidencing from gi/__init__.py not update-manager proper). –  hbdgaf Apr 22 '13 at 13:12
