I can't open "Software and updates" in 14.04 LTS. I've tried multiple restarts and unplugging and replugging various USB devices (I read that somewhere, sounded silly but couldn't hurt to try!) and it still won't open.
After doing many Google searches, as wording software and updates is tough to do there, I saw the command
software-properties-gtk and ran it. I got:
>>$software-properties-gtk Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/software-properties-gtk", line 101, in <module> app = SoftwarePropertiesGtk(datadir=options.data_dir, options=options, file=file) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/gtk/SoftwarePropertiesGtk.py", line 98, in __init__ SoftwareProperties.__init__(self, options=options, datadir=datadir) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 109, in __init__ self.reload_sourceslist() File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 599, in reload_sourceslist self.distro.get_sources(self.sourceslist) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptsources/distro.py", line 89, in get_sources (self.id, self.codename)) aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Ubuntu/utopic
From what I understand (not much), I somehow got a hold of a 14.10 file in there? I feel like uninstalling and reinstalling the program would work, but as I said earlier: I have no idea what I'm doing yet and this particular program is very hard to phrase in Google to get a relevant answer =).
I could just reinstall the OS, but I am on a crappy 10GB/month data plan (rural area, only option other than 56k) and my roommate would be pretty upset. Any ideas?
