@BlueBiker

Yes its very strange and sad

@sadie

If nothing works then you have no option then upgrading your OS
It wont change your settings or anything .

A.)Change the sources.list to
Code:
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ lisa main upstream import backport
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ oneiric main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ oneiric-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ oneiric-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ oneiric partner
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ oneiric free non-free
B.)
Code:
apt-get update
C.)
Code:
apt-get dist-upgrade
D.)
Code:
apt-get upgrade
E.) reboot .

You will have LinuxMint 12 running

Holy crap, it's that easy to update to 12?! And not lose anything? Hmmm
Actually, other than the update manager not working, everything else seems better...nothings freezing up on me, etc.
What would you recommend? Is 12 pretty stable?

Also, I don't really get anything when I put in

ls /etc/apt/sources.list

like us told me to, it just puts

/etc/apt/sources.list

on the next line. Normal?
