Thanks for your bugreport.

This sounds like your /var/lib/dpkg/status file got corrupted, could you please attach it to this report?

Changed in update-manager:

Hi Michael

Thanks for your interest, unfortunately have reinstalled Ibex which trashed the file you need. Using the same /home directories and updates are working fine again. Unfortunately there are no - [] X boxes on the top right of windows anymore, but that's another story.

Very impressed with your follow-ups, many thanks.

john
