I cannot get Synaptic, or any other GUI package manager, to edit the software repository list. Synaptic keeps saying
Repositories changed. The repository information has changed. You have to click on the “Reload” button for your changes to take effect
on each attempt of clicking Settings > Repositories. Other GUI managers don’t even get that far with it.
I did notice a mention in one error message that they seem to be trying to access
https://repo.puri.sm/pureos green InProcess
https://repo.puri.sm/pureos green main
as specified in /etc/apt/sources.list.
I also noticed that the software selection available in the GUI’s is less than that available through apt or apt-get through the command line
This is on a fresh re-install of PureOS v.8 on a new Librem 15 v4 with no other changes made. It happens using either Gnome on Xorg or Gnome on Wayland.
I have reinstalled several times with the same results right out of the box. It is almost as if something is being installed that restricts the sources the the GUI software managers use.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
