Bug Description

Why do have to re-install linux everytime it upgrades to something higher than 10.04 ?

After an upgrade from 10.04 I find myself locked out of my repositories in Synaptic and Update Manager will not come up at all when it is selected.

My only recourse is to install it all over again ... and this last p-----s me to no end. Is there something that can be done to open up those closed repositories?
