I am totally new at Ubuntu and have the 11.4 version on my laptop after getting fed up with windows. I cant download updates using Update manager - I get the bug #783594) and see the following comment: * SECURITY UPDATE: denial of service via long apt URL (LP: #783594) - check URL for length and shorten it for error dialog in AptUrl/AptUrl.py, AptUrl/Parser.py, tests/apturlparse.py. - Patch thanks to Micheal Vogt - CVE number pending
I don't know where to find the URL, how to check it, nor how to shorten it to
My second problem is that when I want to install software from the UBUNTU Software centre I either get a message "Install from safe site only" or nothing at all. Even when after clicking on the install button it says "installing" yet the software is not installed.
Thirdly my Firefox won't log into Face boob.
Can any help a frustrated beginner.
