Ubuntu 14.04 has the lsb_release.py file installed for Python 2.7 as well and lsb_release seems to work under python2.7 as well. You can try this by doing: python2.7 /usr/bin/lsb_release If that works, make a backup of the file /usr/bin/lsb_release and change the first line to read: #! /usr/bin/python2.7 (you can experiment with the -Es options, I ...

I get the same symptoms when I update, but for me the fix (after killing mysql and restarting with --skip-grant-tables to get in) is to execute update mysql.user set plugin = ''; The update process likes to set this column to "unix_socket". I don't know what that is supposed to accomplish, but for me it breaks everything.

In addition to the other answers, an upgrade should leave your applications in place, although they themselves may need to be upgraded to work properly on the newer version: for example, the OS upgrade may bump the version of mysql, which could have implications for an installed application. Bear in mind that third-party PPAs will be disabled during any ...

I'd recommend upgrading only to 14.04 for the time being. There have been many-many reports of problems with both upgrades and clean installs of 16.04 -- including my main desktop system, which I had to recover from backup after upgrading 14.04 to 16.04 resulted in failure to load the desktop. You can remain supported on 14.04 until 2019, so you can ride ...

To upgrade from 12.04 to 16.04 you have to upgrade first to 14.04 and then to 16.04. It can be done by UpdateManager. But I would recomend a clean install. It would probably take less time than double upgrade. Backup your date before any of this actions. You can upgrade Ubuntu from live USB key with 16.04. I thik it should offer you an option to upgrade ...

Use the ip command insted of ifconfig, which is deprecated. ipAddr=$( ip a s eth0 | awk '/inet.*brd/ {print $2}' ) Sample output: 172.16.2.136/16 If you don't want to include the CIDR, use this: ipAddr=$( ip a s eth0 | awk '/inet.*brd/ {print $2}' | awk -F'/' '{print $1}' ) Sample output: 172.16.2.136

I would not use ifconfig because at least on some distro's it's being replaced by ip. If you know your interface you can do this: ip addr |grep eth0 |grep inet |awk '{print $2}' It will give you the mask also which you can cut off like this ip addr |grep eth0 |grep inet |awk '{print $2}' |cut -d "/" -f 1 I'm assuming you are using bash for your ...

In order to get your IP Adress from Ifconfig you can use this: echo `ifconfig tun0 2>/dev/null|awk '/inet addr:/ {print $2}'|sed 's/addr://'` This command will get the IP address of tun0.

As I too was having this issue on some Ubuntu 12.04 servers I was maintaining, I decided to create a clone of Ondrej's PPA with the last known working Ubuntu 12.04 packages. https://launchpad.net/~nickmoline/+archive/ubuntu/php55 Switching to this PPA has allowed me to successfully install Apache and PHP again. this locks Apache to 2.4.16 instead of the ...

You can fix it with either one of three things: Leave it as it is I understand your post, but this is the easiest thing to do, and that is to leave the flashdrive plugged into your computer. Then, everything will run smoothly and you will even have bootloader boot from some kind of an SSD. This is the easiest thing to do (nothing), but you will "lose" ...
