Synaptic update not working Roadblock 2 KDE 4.7

Appears I have 3 updates. Trying to reload I waited a long while still these failed. Should I ignore, or unchecked these two repositories?

Is this a case that the repos aren't loading {they seem to be browseable, so I don't that think should be a problem} or that the apt-notifier keeps indicating that updates are available even after running Synaptic?

If it's the latter that can be caused by kept back and/or broken packages. The command below should show if that's the case.

Code: Select all

apt-get -o 'Debug::NoLocking=true' --trivial-only -V upgrade
