    Only root is allowed to change these files.

    Have a look at Debian release changed.

    As a general rule, if it isn't under /home or /media, you'll need to prefix any command that needs write privileges with sudo. for example, to edit my sources.list, I type:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    Also, in my experience, the only things you need under /etc/apt are sources.list and the trusted files. Can't help much with Synaptic since I ditched it in favor of Aptitude years ago. If you posted copies of the actual terminal output instead of screenshots, I might could give specific advice. Pro tip: appending > filename to the end of a terminal command will redirect output to a text file name filename. 2> filename will redirect error messages, and >> will append output to an existing file.

    @tulsamike...

    You say you did an advance search on synaptic. If you had a problem with flash player why not a search on that one, the main issue, before using sypaptic?

    You have not caused any harm to your system. Rename the persistent and begin afresh. Follow what Mr. Schulz says.

    You may like to follow my post on new knoppix users on sources.list. For installation of flash player plugin you may follow my posts on Flash player install where the easiest method to install the said plugin is explained clearly in post no.41.

    You can happily recover whatever data and files you had in your old persistent, later.

    Your solution...

    Because your lines are wrong!
    I will give you a general direction. Look at sources.list, first line. See what is the Debian stable Version for the Knoppix version? It is the stock version.
    Go to Debian site. See the series of versions: Lenny, Wheezy, Jessie, ...
    For example, if Lenny, Then replace stable with Lenny, unstable with Wheezy, Jessie with ...
    I hope you understand.
    If something has been archived, replace the sources line to direct to the archived version.
    Just use common sense, and no complicated ideas.

    P.S. Please don't post too much of snapshots. Just post what you are asked to post.
