Currently gnome-shell version 3.16 is not available for ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn). But It's available for ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) and ubuntu 15.04 was released on 23 April 2015. So now you can upgrade to 15.04 by sudo do-release-upgrade. And to upgrade gnome-shell to 3.16, add following ppa repository and run sudo apt-get update && sudo ...

You can achieve what you aim for, by creating two meta packages (that only contain dependencies) that provide a virtual package (that exists to declare some functionality that some other package can provide). So: Package: nvidia-dependencies-340 Provides: nvidia-dependencies Depends: nvidia-340 (>=340.29), nvidia-340-uvm (>=340.29), nvidia-340-dev ...

The package is trying to overwrite files which are maintained by a different package. The dpkg error indicates that the insight package is trying to overwrite a file managed by gdbserver. You can't have two packages managing the same file in the packaging system's mind, so it errors. I would suggest that you investigate the PPA and reach out to the PPA ...

It's not about the g++. Check if you don't have any extra space or newline characters. If everything follows Makefile standard it should be ok. Additionally, check if you have specified the path correctly. I hope I'll help somebody else, because I think you're over that problem.

It may not be possible in a fully general sense, but if your deb came from Debian or Ubuntu directly (i.e., not a third-party deb), then it is required to be reproducible by autobuilders which do something like the following: Start with a bare system- all Essential: yes or Priority: Required packages, plus build-essential, and any extra dependencies of ...

This is based on the log I kept of what I did so there are some wrong terns and wild guesses. However I think I solved it but not without the help of comments to the question and a lot of other questions and their answers.

Linux is a virus free platform for many reasons yet it's main reason is LINUX mounts as a "Read Only" (ro) filesystem or rofs.

Fixed with the following two lines! sudo apt-get purge openjdk-7-jre-headless sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre-headless Don't totally understand why... but oh well! EDIT - this broke some other packages having something to do with me only installing the headless version. Fixed with this: sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre

You have duplication in your sources lists. This usually occurs if you accidentally add the same repository twice. check out /etc/apt/sources.list and the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and check for duplicates.

I found the solution to this problem. I needed to completely uninstall MySQL, its databases, and configuration, and restore from backups. This was accomplished with: apt-get remove mysql-client-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5 mysql-common mysql-proxy mysql-server-5.5 mysql-server-core-5.5 and apt-get purge mysql-client-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5 mysql-common ...

For any configuration file for which apt has posed a question, apt will keep a backup based on the action you took. If you chose to replace the current file with the package file, the original will be saved with the extension dpkg-old. If you chose to keep the current file, the new one from the package will be kept with the extension dpkg-dist. ...

Issue 1 You copy the sources.list which contains references to a CD. When trying to install the packages in your VM, there's no CD in the (virtual) drive, hence Failed to fetch cdrom://.

One issue is that the sav-* scripts mentioned in your output seem to be missing a LSB-header. If that is some Sophos Antivirus stuff, better ask Sophos about it. If all else fails, try to add the LSB tags manually to /etc/init.d/sav-web and the other two.

You don't actually have to include your password in your script (from what I have seen its generally not advisable to have your password in a script). Instead you can edit your sudoer file to allow you to run the apt-get command without the need for a password. For more information go to this website. open a terminal (ctrl + alt + T) Enter the command ...

Force a downgrade to the lower version of python: sudo apt-get install python=2.7.8-1 If that doesn't work, download it, and use dpkg directly: sudo apt-get download python=2.7.8-1 sudo dpkg -i python_2.7.8-1*.deb Python is too important a package to be messed with, or even removed.


1

Try to remove the package you attempted to install by doing: sudo dpkg --purge <tgz_package_converted_to_deb> Alternatively you can try sudo dpkg --purge --pending but I think it could break your entire system since you have a lot of unmet dependencies issued by this python's installing attempt.

so at least one file pocsettings.dtd is included in both package libwireshark-data and libwireshark-common. Try to remove that file name from: /var/lib/dpkg/info/libwireshark-common.list so it doesn't know about the conflict and will install the new version.

I decided to create a script that checks if python is running and creates and deletes a configuration override file accordingly. Of course the test for the running python program can be more spicific, for example using -f /proc/$(cat something.pid)/status.

If ; was used they would be the same, but && continues only if the command prior to it sends a exit code saying it exited successfully. It will automatically continue if all goes well, and will only stop to prompt the user to ask whether they want to add the PPA and whether they want to install the package. It may also work better than the ...

Everything there is the same thing. I think the reason it's usually listed the way it is is because it looks better and is easier to remember, since the commands are split up.

The && operator executes the following command only upon success of the previous command / chain of commands. So the implications for those cases are: The script executes every command regardless The scripts executes sudo add-apt-repository example/program and sudo apt-get update regardless and sudo apt-get install example-program only upon ...

All these variants are same. && means that bash runs next command, after first is successfully finished.

TL;DR: You can use reverse-depends src:$(what-source libsslcommon2). There is no libsslcommon2 source package. Instead, libsslcommon2 is one of a number of binary packages built from the qpid-cpp source package. In general, a binary package may or may not have the same name as the source package used to build it, and source packages may provide multiple ...


2

The reverse-depends software doesn't automatically detect the source package from which a given binary package is generated. The src: label is used to indicate that what follows is the name of a source package. It so happens that the name of the source package for bash is, well, bash. But for libsslcommon2, the source package is named qpid-cpp: $ ...

This seems to be a bug of apt. Version 1.0.1 is affected. We've built version 1.0.9.2 from source, and it behaves as expected: reports unmet dependencies and exits with non-zero status. Perhaps this is the same bug: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=745046

Supposing that you want to keep Ubuntu OS, you can install Kali linux within Ubuntu with a virtual machine (VirtualBox, etc), or you can create another partition and install Kali linux in that partition, so you can dual boot either to Ubuntu or Kali linux when you start the machine.
