    It's because the synaptic package doesn't exist on the repositories you mentioned.

    There is a similar graphical programme for slapt-get called slapt-gui

    See here http://akinimod.sourceforge.net/slaptgui/

    You should be running slapt-gui as root and there should not be any problems with permissions.

    If you still can't get it to run as root do

    chmod 777 /etc/slapt-getrc
