Also, what does your /etc/apt/sources.list look like? Here is mine for comparison:

Also, I installed a package just fine using apt-get so I do not think that has anything to do with the differences:

Honestly, I think this might be localized to your installation as it doesn't seem to be a bug (at least one that I could not reproduce).

Also, I find it odd and very unsecure that PcLinuxOS is not asking for the password when I su to root:

Interesting. I needed a password to get root access in VBox.

I just tried a command line upgrade apt-get update then apt-get dist-upgrade and it went OK. One package (bash) upgraded. So it works for me in VBox at least.

Yes, dpkg is usable in PCLOS. If you call Synaptic from the terminal, and not use "&&", it will show up in the terminal, what the GUI is doing. For what it's worth, I didn't think of doing this and watching the printout of what's happening. Could be that I can understand the output, or maybe not.

When I su to root, I don't have that problem. A password is requested from me.  Check to see if you have an applicatio "run as root, running, or there is something in the settings that can disable having to use a password to used root.

Below is a copy of the resources. I also used the coding in the previous page. Have to wait 'till there are some upgrades to download, to find out if all the indexes will be downloaded, while using the same link that I had used earlier. If all the links do come down, and the installation is complete, then the job is done. And if  so, thanks!

I'm still waiting for updates/upgrade(s) to come in. to test the changes. Hopefully I'll no longer have to play musical mirrors to keep updated from now on.

Cheers!
