Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs#When%20not%20to%20file%20a%20bug. There is also a vibrant support community available at http://askubuntu.com and you might consider asking your question there.

You have enabled the partner repo twice. If you run:

grep -i part /etc/apt/sources.list

What is output?

output

## 'partner' repository.
## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by Canonical and the
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu natty partner
# deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu natty partner
## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by third-party
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner

Ok, if you read your question, then read the output you just generated. What do you think the issue is?

Heath (heathbaz) said : #5

Please tell me

Please tell me

Well, lets look:

The error is:

(2) W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://archive.canonical.com/ natty/partner i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.canonical.com_dists_natty_partner_binary-i386_Packages)

The secret here is the word DUPLICATE

Now if we look at the output in post #3 which YOU provided you will see:

## 'partner' repository.
## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by Canonical and the
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu natty partner <---THIS LINE
# deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu natty partner
## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by third-party
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner <---THIS LINE
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner <---THIS LINE
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner <---THIS LINE
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner <---THIS LINE

Notice how you have 2 pairs, as I have pointed out. This confuses the packaging system. If you run:

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and remove this text:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner

You will only have ONE pair of sources for the partner repo, this will remove the DUPLICATE which you had before. When you get errors, don't blindly copy and paste them places. Try reading them first. They are quite English and are there to help you.

Heath (heathbaz) said : #8

this is the OUTPUT after removing those 2 texts from source list, unless I was suppose to remove all that contained your (<---THIS LINE) ?

grep -i part /etc/apt/sources.list
## 'partner' repository.
## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by Canonical and the
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu natty partner
# deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu natty partner
## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by third-party
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner

You need to delete another:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner

So you do not have any duplicates.

Ok then if you run:

sudo apt-get update

Is it smooth?

Cool, if you run:

sudo apt-get -y upgrade

Is it ok?

Yes, Thank You Again.

Great, is Rhythmbox slow to connect now?

Working fine, Thank You Again!
