Your problem is not ubuntu based, but is network issue. If you closely see it says : error are below wget: unable to resolve host address ‘github.com’ which means that your DNS server cannot find github.com .

apt-get update does update the distribution list and let one choose if certain package(s) the individual want to upgrade and apt-get upgrade literally upgrades it. If an individual does not want to upgrade the entire distribution list, the individual can upgrade all except the ones he/she is not interested to do. My $0.02 worth

Use aptitude, a sometimes more intelligent alternative to apt-get. If you run sudo aptitude remove vlc, it will detect possible conflicts that would result of removing vlc and suggests to remove all those other "hidden" dependencies which apt-get would have missed on the first run. If you haven't installed aptitude yet, that can be done using sudo apt-get ...

To remove a package and all its dependencies in one command, you can also directly pass the package name as argument to apt-get autoremove: sudo apt-get autoremove vlc If you prefer to purge the packages (to also clean up all configuration files), the way to go is this: sudo apt-get autoremove --purge vlc However, this will not work in your case, ...

I no expert but i don't think you can do that. I think you can do it with ports with bsd poss look at a docker image instead and don't upgrade it when you have it right. poss security issues but only in docker and you can still upgrade base system.

There are two different servers hosting the debian package for Swift. Germany Mirror Denmark Mirror There shouldn't be a whole lot of difference, but it's possible that they have the bug figured out. The way to find out is to install and try it. If the bug is still there then you know it's not fixed 😛

The packages you have installed with a package manager (dpkg, apt-get, synaptic) are logged in /var/log/apt/, but software you installed manually (sudo make install,etc) has to be tracked manually, too.

There should be as if you go to the software centre you can see all the apps that are installed on your system. The only thing that I can think about if you were going to do a batch file would be that you would have to make it smart enough to determine which apps came with the system itself. Say a line like anything installed after the original install date. ...

Apt does not consider multiple versions of the same package. It chooses one (based on a combination of version numbers, pinning etc) and then it will either install that version or not install the package at all. Aptitude will consider lower versions of the package but later upgrades will attempt to upgrade those lower versions which may result in your ...

You can use apt-mark to hold the package so that it does not get updated after you install it. The command would be from a terminal window: sudo apt-mark hold xpra from the manpage for apt-mark: hold hold is used to mark a package as held back, which will prevent the package from being automatically installed, upgraded or removed. ...

It seems this bootstrap.sh is part of this vagrant which requires that you have Oracle Java7 is installed. So it is making a check and if not echoing it and then taking a particular action(install Oracle Java7). It's using the standard ppa for Oracle Java7 install.

Another solution: use yes command to blindly answer yes to all questions. Apt is smart enough that this solution isn't recommended unless: you know what you're doing, and the -y and --force-yes options don't do what you want In my case, I want to downgrade Nginx, and I don't care about the dependencies. For some reason force-yes didn't work, nor did the ...

I've already faced similar problems and I figured that in most cases the only thing you have to do is sudo dpkg --configure -a and then sudo apt-get install -f If that doesn't help, you should edit file /var/lib/dpkg/status and delete whole blocks of broken packages. Then repeat first two commands and that's it.

By default, the package with the highest version number is installed, regardless of which repository it comes from, unless its version number is lower than the currently installed version of the package (this can happen, for example, if you downloaded a higher version as a .deb package and installed it manually).

The command to remove an apt repository is apt-add-repository with the -r option which will remove instead of add the repository. So in your case, the full command would be: sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:colingille/freshlight The other option is to look in /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.d/ and remove it from there.

If you installed "stuff" via a package manager (apt-get, dpkg, synaptic), it's all logged in /var/log/apt/*. It's a simple matter of editing to generate the apt-get purge commands.
