Here is what I'm looking at. This isn't my computer. I repair PC's and I had an end user with this low powered laptop running XP so I decided to let him try out lubuntu. The install went smoothly with the non-PAE boot switch, but now I can't update anything. I'd rather not have to format and start over since he's spent time configuring his system. Any tips would be appreciated. I tried sudo apt-get clean, sudo apt-get install -f, sudo apt-get update. No go.
Also his touchpad stopped working, the wireless stopped working, the keyboard works in firefox but not chrome, and in firefox the address bar sometimes turns black and gray for some reason. I was hoping the update would help address some of this stuff.
Here's the message I get trying to update:
