I changed the synaptic status because I changed the bug mentioned above (bug 682995) to Won't Fix for Launchpad. I don't think that will accomplish anything useful. As I understand it, and as reinforced there, the person filing the bugs thinks that this should be addressed in synaptic and possibly other programs to give a more informative error message. I am afraid that this may need to happen at an even lower level, but I don't see a specific response to the synaptic aspect of this bug here. If the synaptic aspect of this bug should in fact be closed, perhaps a new one should be opened (and perhaps in another project).
