By default apt-get install does not download the source codes of packages. There is a specific apt-get option to do that which is source. From man apt-get: source source causes apt-get to fetch source packages. APT will examine the available packages to decide which source package to fetch. It will then find and download into ...

You will never get updates for manually installed packages, which are not installed by a PPA or by the Ubuntu repositories. You have to download the deb file again and again for each new version. In your case, you have installed the version for Vivid from the officially Ubuntu Launchpad site. If you start a upgrade to Vivid, you will get updates for your ...

It sounds like the name is still stored in the bash shell's program name cache: if so, you can remove it by typing hash -d codeblocks or (to clear the entire cache) hash -r Since hash is a shell built-in function, it is documented under the bash manual page (man bash) or via the online help function help hash.

@heemayl answer tells you how to get the source code but in case you are wondering how come the package is installed without using the source code? It is because Ubunutu does not build packages from source and instead downloads precompiled binaries. A distro like Gentoo Linux however would download the source and build a package locally.

Simply open Software & Updates via your Dash and you will see this Activate the first checkbox and you will see this Now, your sources.list is back. The output of sudo apt-get update lists only the informations of your PPAs. The list-files are stored in the folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d

You should change your mirror from http://mirrors.gigenet.com/ to another one, I suggest the Main server. Open Software & Updates and select the Main Server update the package informations and install the SDK again, eg: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-sdk

I had the same issue which got resolved by downgrading my libbsd0. sudo apt-get install libbsd0=0.6.0-2ubuntu1 My libbsd0 was versioned 0.7.0-2+deb.sury.org~trusty+1 which is probably incompatible.

That repository is not updated. You can install Oracle java 8u51 by a script now. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install git git clone https://github.com/hanipouspilot/oracle-java8.git cd oracle-java8 sudo chmode +x javains sudo ./javains I hope they will update the ppa soon, and I will not have to maintain java installation for good.

Basically, dpkg-query shows you what is installed on your system, or even packages which has been installed on your system and then been removed at some point. Interestingly enough, if a package uses a dependency of another package, dpkg may list them as installed even though one of them was never fully installed on the system. But apt is used to download ...

It is a wrong way to manually remove any files or folders installed by dpkg. The solution is to re-install google-chrome via a deb package. Download deb file from google.com, then install it using sudo dpkg -i <file_name> then remove it sudo apt-get purge google-chrome*

Edit the /etc/apt/preferences file and add: Package: unzip Pin: version 2.7 Pin-Priority: 100 Package: unzip Pin: version 3* Pin-Priority: 1000 This will keep the package on 2.7, skip 2.8, 2.9 and upgrade to 3* when available. Note that this is an unnatural way of not upgrading to an unstable package version. A better (and the recommended way) is to ...
