Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I updated Ubuntu 12.10 using the Update Manager, and now the desktop will not load.

I tried to remove nvidia-current and reinstall it through various methods suggested on the web, but the operation always fails at line 33 in /var/lib/dpkg/info/nvidia-current.postrm with the message:

/usr/sbin/update-initramfs is not found

I tried to remove and reinstall initramfs-tools but it would not let me do so.

I'm running the commands as "sudo" user.

Can anyone help as I'm a novice to Ubuntu?
