/etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list shouldn't be a directory; it should be a file. Start by deleting that directory/file. Then, correct the second line of your script; it should be sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_precise.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list (no space in-between). On another note, if you aren't doing a ...

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. Another possibility (if you don't need samba for the time being) is to fetch the file /var/cache/apt/archives/samba-libs_2%3a4.1.6+dfsg-1ubuntu2_amd64.deb, opening it up (mc is the easiest way to do that, but going ...

dist-upgrade does NOT upgrade the system. From the apt-get man page: dist-upgrade In addition to performing the function of upgrade, this option also intelligently handles changing dependencies with new versions of packages; apt-get has a "smart" conflict resolution system, and it will attempt to upgrade the most important packages at the expense ...

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.

11.10 is no longer supported since 9 May 2013. Upgrading all the way to 14.04 is a long call. I suggest you backup your data and install 14.04 from scratch.

Move getdeb.list.bck file to another location. sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list.bck ~/Desktop And then remove '' from the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/libdvdcss.list in the line 3.

Solution 1: (using Debian epoch) Prefix your package version with 1: so that it will be 1:1.2.1 and thus it will always be seen as a higher version. This is very handy if you build your own modified packages and don't want them replaced by Ubuntu upgrades. When comparing two version numbers, first the epoch of each are compared, then the ...

You already have mesa-common-dev properly installed on your system via mesa-common-dev-lts-quantal which is a backport of the 12.10 version (9.0.3) where Ubuntu 12.04 only provides 8.0.4. So both are not co-installable hence the conflicts at packaging level. Moreover you're trying to install a i386 package on a 64bits system. In term of dependencies, ...

You all need to go to Ubuntu Software Centre > Software Sources Select appropriate mirrors rather than main [USA] and when you're done try installing then. P.S. enable canonical updates and just left untick one thing 'pre released updates' and you are done! cheers! xD

On a server I prefer Atitude because it comes with a pretty good interface to check package changelogs, selective upgrades and that kinds of stuff. apt-get is more quick though and I always use that if I just want to update everything without too much hassle.

In addition to the other answers, it's also worth noting that apt-get often falls on its face for simple operations, and it has no ability to handle dependency version mismatches or broken packages (although it claims that broken packages can be fixed with apt-get install -f, I've literally never seen that work in my entire life). For some reason, I still ...

When you ran apt-get upgrade, where there any "not upgraded"? Eg: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

The problem is the following (from man apt-get): install install is followed by one or more packages desired for installation or upgrading. Each package is a package name, not a fully qualified filename (for instance, in a Debian system, apt-utils would be the argument provided, not apt-utils_0.9.12.1_amd64.deb). ...

Download the .deb file for 32-bit or 64-bit. Install it with dpkg -i path/to/download.deb It may (probably) complain that some dependencies are missing, if so, install them. If you need a higher version, look around here for the one in precise fitting your needs.

Help documentation and translations of the programs in other languages. So you can download other "translation entries" and set for instance Firefox to german, swedish or italian if you like. However, if you only use one language in all of your programs, then it makes no sense to check for 100 other translation files that you don't need anyway.

If the package pkg1 depends on the package pkg2 and you install pkg1 then the package manager will automatically install pkg2 to satisfy this dependency.

A dependency is a package required by another package to complete its own functionality. There are two popular packaging mechanisms: debian RPM Both these mechanisms use the concept of dependencies. Ubuntu uses debian packaging. If A and B are two packages and A is a dependency for B, satisfying dependency means installing the version of package A as ...
