If you check launchpad you will see that AWN Testing has support for 13.10, 13.04 and 12.04. So no 14.04.

If you change the distribution name you can install it from the ...

Basically, each time you upgrade the kernel, it doesn't remove older versions. This is a good idea since sometimes, you might want to go back to the older version. However, it is unlikely you will want to go several versions back. So, yes, those are safe to remove. Alok's link is fine. I personally use Ubuntu Tweak, which has an option to clean up old ...

During the installation of i386 packages in 64 bit Multiarch Ubuntu systems If you're trying to install a package which depends on many i386 packages, the above stated dependency error also would be caused if you fail to add i386 architecture by running sudo dpkg --add-architecure i386 command.

That's because each package has specific details about how it can be installed. Post-processing for a package sometimes has follow up (symlinking, documentation generation, et cetera). Such processing may pre-depend on other processes having completed. This isn't a Linux flaw. It's a "computation" flaw. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halting_problem). No ...

Both dpkg and RPM can handle more than one application install at a time.

Use aptitude instead of apt-get. It is more intelligent.

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list shouldn't be a directory; it should be a file. Start by deleting that directory/file.

Read nattgew's answer first, this is a workaround only You could wait until there is a newer release of samba-libs, possibly fixing this bug.

dist-upgrade does NOT upgrade the system.

The first workaround mentioned in this bug report worked for me: https://bugs.launchpad.net/boot-repair/+bug/1267702 Basically, you have to manually install three .deb packages: glade2script, boot-sav and then boot-repair (in this order). Use the most recent ones (the ones for saucy).

I think with the advent of functional "micro" deployments using LXC and Docker that this might become increasingly relevant.
