In the vast majority of cases any package would be available on ARM. One of the requirements for a package to be accepted into a Debian release is that it has to compile on all of the Debian architectures, not just x86/x64. This includes ARM. So, this will pretty much guarantee that the vast majority of Ubuntu's packages will at least be able to be ...

first get rid of the ppa as it's not needed and that's what's causing your problems sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/glasen-intel-driver-saucy.list To add the key execute this command sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys A902DDA375E52366 now execute these commands to add intel download installer for 14.04 64 bit cd && ...

To download properly from 01.org you need to import their GPG keys, as mentioned in the release and installation notes. You may also want to disable the glasen ppa unless you intend to keep trying that source. wget --no-check-certificate https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-KEY-ilg -O - | \ sudo apt-key add - wget --no-check-certificate ...

run "sudo apt-get upgrade", update only refreshes the repos, not the packages

According to my testing the reason this is so slow is because apt-cache policy some-package iterates over file descriptors until it hits a limit error. ~# cat /etc/lsb-release DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.04 DISTRIB_CODENAME=trusty DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 14.04 LTS" ~# ulimit -n 65535; time apt-cache policy snmpd snmpd: Installed: ...

If you did a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04.4 it means you are using the Saucy kernel, since Ubuntu Saucy ended support two days ago that means your current kernel will drop security support and you will not recieve security updates so you need to do as suggested by the system update.

I had explicitly uninstalled flash, however, the messages continued to appear. disconcerting and distracting. Finally, sudo apt-get remove update-notifier did the trick. Of course, now must manually check for updates, but that beats that persistent microsoft-like annoying reminder.

You dont have to do anything with sources.list first do apt-cache search ruby1.8 it will list all the packages. note the name of desired package you want to install and then just do sudo install with that package name.

Or, using aptitude as Gilles answer, just use the why command that will show you "why a package was installed": aptitude why python-gpgme For example: ➜ ~ aptitude why python-gpgme i bzr Recommends python-gpgme This tells me, that if there was a reason to install python-gpgme it would be due bzr package that it's installed.

I don't know why you have a newer version of libglapi-mesa, but that's not right. You need to downgrade the package (and maybe others) to fix the issue: sudo apt-get install -f libglapi-mesa=8.0.4-0ubuntu0.7 It will probably tell you that you need to downgrade other packages, answer "Y".

The problem is that the right way to install it has recently changed - so most directions you can find on the net will be outdated and no longer working for a while.

I tried some of the ip addresses on my browser and sure enough looking at the list I noticed . . . These are all for "updates" and "security" updates which are no longer provided because 13.04 is EOL - LOL. There are no updates for this version of Ubuntu anymore. You must use a newer version of Ubuntu or remove the update & security URLs from ...

Such a situation can come if the installation is stopped midway. Good news is that all your files are safe there. Also, during update all the required files were already downloaded to your laptop (otherwise installation would not have started.) So, now you just need to complete the installation process. First, Ctrl+Alt+F1 (or F2, f3, f4 anyone is fine.) ...

ubuntu 13.04 ... to reduce the need for upgrade non-sense you have to choose an "LTS" marked version of Ubuntu.


0

13.04 is EOL, I think, so you need to upgrade your system as the repos have moved to archive. Either upgrade to 14.04, or, if you absolutely must not upgrade, you need to add the old repos to your list and run sudo apt-get update.

sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list’ /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list I thinks this should work as the file currently has the name google.list’, but it needs to end in *.list to work - the above command should move/rename it to a file with the appropriate extension.

you need to force overwriting the packages this problem comes with repositories sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite <filename> and then run dpkg sudo apt-get -f install see this for more help on dpkg and this for more help on this error

As 12.10 is EOL, the repos for it have moved. Upgrade to a newer version of ubuntu (or downgrade to 12.04, though that is really not recommended) to access the normal repos. If you absolutely need to use that version of ubuntu, consider adding the archive repos, google for instructions on how to do that. In the end my answer is upgrade to 14.04, it's more ...


1

Ubuntu 12.10 is not supported any more since May 2014. You either need to update to a more recent version of Ubuntu (i.e. 14.04), or find an alternative repository. The alternative repository for 12.10 might eventually be released here, but it is not available yet.

You can try the following first: sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade The last 2 lines are just to make sure the repositories and cache and error free. Another way is: sudo apt-get --fix-missing install Another way is by actually installing the packages they are dependent on. sudo apt-get install libcheese-gtk23 libcheese7 ...

Just use apt-get to install something. My first recommendation is to install Synaptic (sudo apt-get install synaptic) and just use Synaptic instead of Ubuntu Software Center (USC). You can do anything USC can do with Synaptic. You don't have to use Terminal anymore if you have Synaptic. You can configure your PPA in Synaptic plus so many features USC doesn't ...

No, both libfltk1.1-dev and libfltk1.3-dev cannot be installed at the same time. This is because the headers (among other files) in both packages are installed at the same location and therefore would be conflicting. Edit: Since these are two different programs, the following steps can be followed: Install libfltk1.1-dev. Compile the program that needs ...

You can try to check the cache and to clean the cache directory.

If you wish to do a comparison between the two, and have a movable list you could do: dpkg --get-selections>new.txt This will take your output and send it to a text file ('new.txt').

If you are using certain PPA(for example xorg-edgers); you'll have to run ppa-purge on it before you try and upgrade (roughly this means, if you have packages installed that don't meet the dependency resolution for the upgrade this can cause it too fail).

Virtual Box guest additions are installed as kernel modules.

I always advise not to upgrade, but to do a fresh installation instead. Ubuntu installer is simple, reliable and well tested. Moreover, installation process doesn't take much time. In the other hand, upgrade can be real troublemaker, it is unreliable, almost always needs additional configuration actions after and sometimes before, and takes much more time. ...

Run sudo dpkg --remove libdbus-1-3:i386. dpkg will likely complain about unmet dependencies. Then, run sudo apt-get install libdbus-1-3 libdbus-1-3:i386 to upgrade the amd64 package (if needed) and install the i386 package.

If in doubt, just use the -s (aka --simulate, --just-print, --dry-run, --recon and --no-act) flag.
