    Hi cousinlucky !

    Check if everything working fine in background. Execute this in Terminal :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean all
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Does any of above command throw error?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thanks, DC! I think my problem is being caused by the wvdial I installed so that i could get onto the internet to download the 153 files that included gnome-ppp.
    I set up the gnome ppp but I always get the errors " can not find modem " or " can not open modem "!!

    I did not find any mistakes and I even went so far as to reinstall 12.04 and I still can not download anything from their software center.

    I installed the synaptic package manager and that works just fine.
