php5-mcrypt (MCrypt module for php5) has been updated to php7.0-mcrypt (libmcrypt module for PHP) in Ubuntu 16.04. The command sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ in Ubuntu 16.04 searches the package list files for all Task: fields and gets all with lamp-server, among them is php7.0.

sudo apt-get update doesn't actually update anything. It just refreshes Ubuntu's repositories, so it knows if updates are available. You need to run sudo apt-get upgrade to actually update any packages. As for that error, it shouldn't affect much in terms of upgrades. Since it's obviously an invalid PPA, you can just remove it. Do that by running sudo add-...

Files in /etc/asterisk looks like they are generally shipped by the asterisk-config package. So it is this package you need to purge. Your autoremove did remove this package, but did not purge it. sudo apt-get --purge autoremove would have done it, but now that it is removed, dpkg -P asterisk-config is necessary. There may be other files that you need to ...

While I cannot answer what is not included in cinnamon as opposed to cinnamon-destop-environment I can answer your broader question. cinnamon-destop-enviroment is a meta package. A meta package does not include any real programs in it it is more of a recipe. It directs the package manager to pull in all the needed programs for the desktop environment to ...

Basically you can say that cinnamon is a part of cinnamon-core which itself is a part of cinnamon-desktop-environment. cinnamon is the most basic and minimal Cinnamon installation you can get. cinnamon-core is a minimal Cinnamon desktop, but it also includes few more ...

I don't see any options that make apt (or apt-get) skip a non-existent package and continue installing the others. However, you could run apt install for every single package in your list separately, that way one non-existent package does not abort installation of the others. A simple Bash for loop is very useful here: sudo bash -c 'for pkg in cowsay ...

This is very old, but I had a similar problem upgrading to 16.04, so I figured I'd post my solution here in case anyone else suffers from this. The problem is that the delllctservice and delllctservicecontent scripts are missing LSB headers, which tell the system in what order to start them. Somehow during the upgrade this messes up the boot order, which ...

This repository does not support Xenial. If you need codeblocks, add the official PPA for the latest version (https://launchpad.net/~damien-moore/+archive/ubuntu/codeblocks-stable) or install it from the official repositories. If you need builddeb, just install it from the official repositories (bzr-builddeb). If you need DoUML, run: git clone https://...

As you can see from http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=python3.4&searchon=names&suite=xenial&section=all, there is no package for python3.4 for Ubuntu 16.04. You can compile and install Python 3.4 from source, but if you are not familiar with doing it or prefer to install packages using the APT package manager, I would recommend ...

You can view a list of files included in a package with dpkg-query -L zfsnap To see the usable commands you could grep for /usr/bin or /usr/sbin in this case: dpkg-query -L zfsnap|grep /usr/sbin EDIT: Catch-all with fancy regexp ;) dpkg-query -L zfsnap|egrep "(/usr)*/(s*)bin"

My solution was to look for the file /usr/lib/python3.5/distutils/filelist.py in the Internet. Got to this list, that says the file is part of libpython3.5-stdlib. What I did I downloaded the libpython3.5-stdlib DEB file from a mirror, and then run $ sudo dpkg -i /home/adam/Downloads/libpython3.5-stdlib_3.5.2-2~16.01_amd64.deb What I would try if it ...

Ubuntu does not have the Symantec CA certificates in /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/ direcotry. So, one thing what we can do is we can export the Symantec CA certificate from mozilla, since Mozilla and Chrome has Symantec CA certificates by default and you can put it under the directory /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/ with crt extension and update ...

You have the GetDeb package repository configured to use the Xenial packages even though your other packages are for Trusty. You need to edit the relevant sources.list file and replace xenial with trusty. Here's one automated way to do it and update the package list: sudo sed -i -e `s/xenial-getdeb/trusty-getdeb/` /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*.list} sudo apt-...
