  • Also the default repositories in my phone cannot update 

I've tried updating the software of my n900 and it didn't help

Re: Nokia N900 application packages please help!!!

do you have rootsh installed?

if so run these commands in xterm

root
apt-get -f install
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade -y
apt-get clean

it might just be a glitch so try removing the battery for 30 seconds and press the power button whilst the battery is out
