Just before I read your reply I edited sources-list for a different
source, debian.uchicago.edu father than debian.org, and the synaptic
function was partially restored.

For some reason synaptic didn't like Debian security entries, but
worked when they were commented out.  However, I am not happy about not
being able to receive security updates.  Are those entries correct?


I think the answer to that is no. On Stretch here I have

deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrin non-free


Mine is:

$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Where 'xx' is the country code of your country.

E.G:

'ftp.us.'
