New App to Test at Blogger

This is the first time I'll be using a new app for posting to blogger. The UI is nice enough to merit my efforts at learning to use it.

I could use something like this.

Resolved Package Manager Unable to Download Information From Repository

First of all, the error message did not accurately tell the problem. I am sure that whenever I try to update my local machine is unable to download  information from the repository. Is it a bad internet connection? Is it a bad server?
I tried to switch to a better or as the applications says best server.
I opened the Software & Updates application and switched to "the best server". Reload the cache from the new server.
I try to update and it worked well.

Some Weird Bugs For An LTS

I am getting some weird bugs. I use Ubuntu 16.04 and this is suppose to be as stable as they come because it carries an "long term support" designation. Traditionally, they don't introduce new features for lts releases. I can't update packages and I can't upgrade packages. So normally I would just open a terminal and use the command line. Guess what, apt-get is also giving me errors. 
I hope this is temporary and the fix is well on its way because a bug in the  package manager is not something most linux users can get away from.
