I still can't get it to work. I added the repositories
to /etc/apt/sources.list and saved the file. Then I ran the commands
above as root. Then I opened Synaptic and did a Reload. Synaptic
complained that several repositories were unavailable, including some
basic ones that came with the default Ubuntu installation. 

Finally, I deleted the added repositories from /etc/apt/sources.list,
saved the file, reloaded Synaptic, and all is back to normal again.

I give up until there is a fix that I need (like setting a font in a
PDF field). Then I'll be motivated to figure out what is wrong.
