Sounds a bit like a proxy problem. I once had a problem with maven that the proxy replaced a jar by a html page containing a virus warning. The html got saved as .jar but because it was broken nothing worked anymore. Anyway: it's safe to delete everything from the directory /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/. Did you try another mirror?

You can add Public Keys to your apt keychain using apt-key. It is up to you to determine whether or not to trust the keys and import them. Here is how you would do it: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 886DDD89 7F0CEB10 C300EE8C Where keys are separated by spaces. You may use full keys, or the last eight characters, as show above. ...

comm -23 <(apt-mark showmanual | sort -u) <(gzip -dc /var/log/installer/initial-status.gz | sed -n 's/^Package: //p' | sort -u) Gives all manually installed packages (not system packages, not dependencies). For examples it shows build-essential but not gcc.

It's a mess as you say this must be due to problems in your repository & PPA sources I suggets to clean the mess first : start with sudo apt-get install gksu sudo apt-get install gedit Then gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list There, on the file that opens you replace all with proper sources.list generated there : http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/ (check ...

So, mate-core depends on mate-desktop-environment-core which in turn depends on mate-terminal. A depend cannot be broken easily. Nor apt-get nor aptitude supports a --without or --exclude option and "holding" the packages won't help: $ echo "mate-terminal hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections $ sudo apt-get install mate-core [...] Some packages could not be ...

Try to change server from US to something else in System Settings -> Software & Update -> Updates. One of the mirrors may be down. Or maybe your network does not let you reach some addresses. And your architecture probably IS amd64 (64-bit linux), so don't worry about that.

I had a similar problem after installing TLP. I solved it by looking for linux-tools-3.13.0-53 in Synaptic and installing it through Synaptic.

You just might need to update the drivers. Go to Dell's website and find the make and model of video and sound card and try to find a driver either; Find a driver manually online or Install the driver through Ubuntu And, for now, use Ethernet, I guess

Try installing synaptic from the command line, and see if you can't reinstall apt that way. From a terminal window, type in the following: wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/s/synaptic/synaptic_0.81.1_amd64.deb then install the downloaded package: sudo dpkg -i synaptic_0.81.1_amd64.deb then run the installed app: sudo synaptic In the ...

This bug is confirmed. As packages require vivid tools, upgadring to 15.04 may be a workaround.

I'm not sure what happened with your apt-get, but if you're unable to use it, you might want to use apt from Ubuntu repositories (simply downloading and installing via sudo dpkg -i package_name) the functionality of apt is pretty much similar to what you get with apt-get.


0

Assuming that your apt-get seriously needs a reinstall, you can try following: Check your current apt-get version by apt-get --version. Search for the same version's .deb file on launchpad.net install it by dpkg -i filename.deb Of course, this unfortunately cannot work if you also removed the packeges on which apt depends, like libgcc1

To have the messages in english, try export LANG=C before issuing the commands. Seems that the packages linux-tools-common and linux-lts-vivid-tools-common are incompatible.

Apt manual claims that you can specify "exact dependency" with (=xx.yy) as well as <=, >=, but it does not work as documented. The way things seem to actually work is that Depends: version info has no functional value and is completely ignored. Without the version dependency, you cannot have a repo with multiple supported versions of the same package - ...

For what it's worth, I fought this issue for a while before I landed on this as a solution: sudo apt-get install steam -y This took care of all of the nasty package issues. Steam started right up.

First, clear your system with: apt-get update apt-get -f install Then remove Wine: apt-get remove wine wine1.6 Then install only one package, depending on your system: either amd64 or i386 sudo apt-get install wine1.7 let me see your output of doing so in case of error.

I've found in the past that stringing the commands together in that manner causes issues if one of them have a "hiccup". For example, if your command is similar to this: sudo apt-get install 1 2 3 4 then, if there's an error on program 3, 4 will not install. Keeping them separate on each line fixes this issue. if there's an error, the script continues ...

You have backup copies of the package files (that you have downloaded in another computer) in your USB drive. In this situation just create a folder in your home directory, say, ARCHbackUP.

This should solve your problem: export http_proxy=http://username:password@10.114.7.7:80/

Alternatively, you can place the following in /etc/apt/apt.conf Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy.server.port:8080"; 8080 is the port number and I think is standard. Don't forget the quotes or the trailing semicolon.

There is nothing to worry about. dpkg does not remove directories where are some other files, not created by the removed package.

The message is common when the folder is not empty, as the message suggests. This is because other packages also put their files in this folder. A package can not easily remove a folder that is not empty, that would leave an unstable or broken system. It is also possible that you yourself have stored files in this folder. And it would certainly be annoying ...

Look at this line: Depends: libdrm2 (= 2.4.52-1) but 2.4.56-1~ubuntu1 will be installed. It says the libdrm-dev to be installed is 2.4.52-1 and requires its dependencies all versioned in 2.4.52-1. But your apt-get only has 2.4.56-1~ubuntu1 available. Thus, you may try to 'upgrade' the version of libdrm-dev, that is version 2.4.56-1~ubuntu1, as same as ...
