I would definitely not recommend installing older Ubuntu versions, given that there will be no security updates for them, leaving your system vulnerable for all kinds of attacks. Instead, it would be better to go for a lighter desktop edition, for example LUbuntu (or are you already using that give nthat this post is tagged with lubuntu). As to the missing ...

Desktop version of 10.04 end the life so you can't install gcc using apt-get... You should upgrade to latest version of Ubuntu. To upgrade latest you can do with sed, first open terminal(Ctrl+Alt+T) and type the following, sudo sed -i -e 's/archive.ubuntu.com\|security.ubuntu.com/old-releases.ubuntu.com/g' /etc/apt/sources.list then update with sudo ...

if you look at the output command, you have installed isc-dhcp-server instead of dhcp3-server. So all you have to do is sudo apt-get remove isc-dhcp-server

I used both guides in the past and honestly is the same, on one you do a little more typing or Copy and Paste but it is the same thing.

Skip the source packages. And backports, if you don't need them. For 14.04, mirroring the amd64 and i386 architectures and skipping source packages and backports, my mirror needs ~100G.

1. Yes. You should update your OS. Mint 9 ended it's support in April 2013 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_Mint_releases. 2. I believe the problems you had installing skype and frostwire will be fixed with a newer OS, like mint 17 (yes, the newest is number 17).

From your 1st link: Be mindful that, you need at least 50GB or more free space in your local or external hard drive. From your 2nd link: For a complete mirror cache your server needs at least 120G free space reserved for local repositories. So you can expect at least 120Gb for a complete mirror. But... even without a number I would just get a ...

I found this helpful thread that fixed my problem. No Sound on Ubuntu 12.04 I ran the code stated in the answer and it fixed the issue for videos with 720p and below. I'm still experiencing the problem for any 1080p files.

try the following: extract the content of the deb file using $ ar vx file.deb check the file _gpgbuilder and that the data file has an extension .tar.gz IF it has a .tar.xz means that the package was created using a dpkg-deb on Ubuntu which has default compress-type xz (check dpkg-deb's man page on option compress-type/-Z) dpkg-sig checks for ...

Open a terminal and type sudo apt-get autoremove Sorted. These are out of date or left over remnants from uninstalled programs or the like. Basically they're useless

The removal of the offending packages and reinstalling them (and dependencies) fixed the issue entirely. This is apparently a bug as noted by user Andrea .

In my case I've got the same problem out of not following the RTFM principle :) Installed some packages from xorg-edgers and then haven't removed them properly as it is said in the installation comment (i.e. just removed the repository but not the installed packages). This caused a domino effect which lead apt to be unable to install any i386-library ...

First of all, you should try to fix dependency problems before installing new packages. Try to run: sudo apt-get install -f Then try again to install the desider package.

if the problem occurs with apt-get it self, try to check your software repository at: /etc/apt/sources.list and replace its content with appropriate repos depending on your location then do: sudo apt-get update

For the symbolic links to libraries I could find on my system, the links were all relative, and not absolute: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Aug 9 03:52 libwine.so -> libwine.so.1.0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Aug 9 03:52 libwine.so.1 -> libwine.so.1.0 So, it looks like the Makefile should do a cd to the library folder and make relative ...

apt-get autoremove apt-get -f install Picked out from your text seems to be quite appropriate... Have you tried that? If all goes well: 3. apt-get update && apt-get upgrade ... may be in place. Edit your post and add a <hr> tag to the end of it, then add more text to answer this / tell what went wrong.

There is probably nothing really wrong. Simple answer: apt-get and aptitude have different dependency resolvers (how-do-i-fix-these-broken-dependencies). To see if there is actually an issue you can run the following commands: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --reinstall foomatic-db-compressed-ppds xz-lzma Personally, I would advise against ...

The solution is simple: sudo apt-get -f remove libpcap-dev libpcap0.8 libpcap0.8-dev libpcap0.8-dev:i386 libpcap0.8:i386 So, why this happens? You have two version of libpcap0.8 package, one for amd64 and another for i386, which both should be conflicting, but I guess you used a PPA before to install those packages and they didn't have the proper ...

Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages This means that the dependency resolver didn't find a way to satisfy all the dependencies for all the packages and decided to bail out until you offer a manual method to install the needed packages manually. This has nothing to do with packages being "on hold". This happens due several reasons, ...

It looks like your IPv6 connection is misconfigured, either by Ubuntu or by Comcast. As a (temporary) workaround, open up the wireless network's setitngs in Network Manager, switch to the IPv6 tab and change it from Automatic to Disabled. Disconnect and reconnect your wireless connection.

You mentioned having tried most of the cli's to resolve apt-get issues.

libstdc++ is not a binary package name. Since a package matching the name libstdc++ isn't found, apt-get searches packages that match this regex, and therefore wants to install 4.4, 4.6, 4.7, and 4.8 and the associated -doc and -dbg files Instead, the packages you are probably looking for libstdc++6

apt-get always favours the highest version installed - so instead of removing/downgrading the GOA packages, it will try to remove the packages which depend on the lower version. One solution is to get the older packages and install them using dpkg -i - you can download from Ubuntu Packages or use apt-get download, which should download the highest version in ...

No, unless you manage to locate a PPA that has more up-to-date versions in it for 12.04 (my cursory check did not find any such PPA). The reason for this is most likely that the dependencies are different in 14.04 (more up-to-date); it is also possible that the package maintainer simply isn't bothering to build packages for older versions of Ubuntu. If you ...

That's probably due to the phased updates. New updates may introduce new bugs. So, to minimize the impact of those bugs, the updates are released gradually to more users. This only affects the Update Manager, not apt-get. If you run the Update Manager tomorrow, it will probably show some of those updates that apt-get is reporting now. In short, I think ...

I just had the same problem and could fix it by running: sudo dpkg --configure -a and canceling it with CTRL+C. Then sudo apt-get purge nautilus-dropbox ran just fine.

To upgrade to a new release you need to use sudo do-release-upgrade as sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade just update all packages.

This is expected behaviour - sudo resets the environment by default. Starting a root shell with sudo su is one workaround. You can also modify the sudo behaviour (see the linked page).
