I successfully installed Ubuntu 13.10 from Ubuntu 13.04. When I tried to install Java in the terminal, I got a message that said: some repository files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

When I rebooted the computer, the network connection icon had disappeared from the panel. How can I restore the network connection icon to my panel?

Try it once

  • Open terminal and execute these commands:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get -f install --reinstall indicator-network
    sudo update-initramfs -u
  • Logout/restart your system.

The second command wants to install 47 packages. Why so many? – Craig McQueen Dec 12 '13 at 2:50
@CraigMcQueen: I'm not sure why it shows that much packages. But be sure that it will only install the packages, non of the packages are going to be removed.. If you could post the output it would be better.. :) – Saurav Kumar Dec 12 '13 at 4:32
This worked perfectly... thanks – ATOzTOA Feb 4 at 17:18
