Synaptic fails after upgrade reports old version

After an upgrade from the unsupported 15.04 to 15.10, Synaptic failed.  It complained about the unsupported version “vivid” when I was running “wiley”.

To correct this issue I opened:

/root/.synaptic/synaptic.conf

as root. I found a line in the editor”

DefaultDistro “vivid”

and changed it to:

DefaultDistro “wily”

after saving the file Synaptic worked.
