Re: Error updating BT5
run @bt:~# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
instead. you should really spend some more time searching for easy answers to questions like this before creating a new thread. it has to be mentioned; it's probably why you haven't gotten any replies to something this easy. look up either sickness' bt5, or maxfx's bt5, updater python scripts on here for something way more elegant and comprehensive from either, than you will get from a simple update && dist-upgrade.
it's your first post and question on here... no harm, no foul. asking for spoonfed answers will only last so long. just a simple word of advice. do your own research first until you hit a *real* brick wall and have no choice other than to ask for help.
might actually learn something. :)
