After Fresh Installation of Ubuntu 12.04.1 x64, When I launched Ubuntu One I got following Error.

enter image description here

When I tried to upgrade python-ubuntuone-control-panel , It shows that already newest version. I reinstalled Ubuntu one but got same.

Error While installing using Terminal

kk@kk:~$ sudo apt-get install  ubuntuone-client

It seems like your apt cache is broken. Are there any errors when you do apt-get update? What is the output of apt-cache policy ubuntuone*? – dobey Jan 3 '13 at 18:41

Try running:

sudo apt-get -f install

It might autocorrect some dependency issues. If it does not work, try removing Ubuntu One and reinstall it.


It seems that you have a wrong package version of the package python-ubuntone-control-panel. Go into your software sources, go to third tab (Updates) and make sure that the second checkbox (recommend updates (precise-updates)) is checked. Then go out and run

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Your version of Ubuntu One should now be updated from 3.0.0 to 3.0.2, which fits with the package python-ubuntuone-control-panel 3.0.1 that you already have installed.


If this does not work, then you might try to go to Synaptic and look for ubuntuone-control-panel and make sure that it has not been held back at some version. If it has a green checkbox in the left column in the result list, you are fine.

Then try to use aptitude to install the package. It is generally better at solving dependencies

sudo aptitude install ubuntuone-client

Edit 2

Regarding your last edit you write it seems that you have installed the package ubuntuone-gnome-client which is not necessary for Ubuntu One running in Unity (clean install of Ubuntu 12.04.1). This package can safely be removed:

sudo apt-get remove ubuntuone-client-gnome

Tried Before you answered. also Tried to reinstall Ubuntu one. – K.K Patel Jan 3 '13 at 12:29
still no success.. – K.K Patel Jan 3 '13 at 13:25
Have you tried with aptitude? Alternatively you could try to Go to ubuntuone-control-panel in Synaptic and force version 3.0.0 or remove it and download it from the Ubuntu archive. If you want, we can take this to a chat room. – Zilvador Jan 3 '13 at 17:19
Thanks a lot friend. With using synaptic I solved issue most of. But I am getting now a just a little problem. see edited question – K.K Patel Jan 4 '13 at 3:31
Please tell me what you did in Synaptic to solve the issue to help other users. And have a look at the last line of the edited answer. Also, have you tried running aptitude? It will give suggestions to unresolved package dependencies. – Zilvador Jan 4 '13 at 10:37
