    Check your source list and make sure you don't have any other repos there.

    On the fresh install, I shouldn't have anything unusual in the source list, anyway here it is.
    Code:
    deb http://all.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
    deb http://64.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
    #deb http://source.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
    deb http://updates.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing

    That is a Ubuntu 12.04.1 install. Don't install it! It overwrites your BackTrack install and replaces it with either GNOME or KDE Ubuntu

    Why is it there if it's not a part of backtrack?

    Because BackTrack is based of Ubuntu, and when a new version of Ubuntu is available, it asks you. You can disable distro upgrade notfications in settings.

    I never seen this upgrade notification in Backtrack Gnome version. Recently upgraded to BT R3 64bit Gnome.
