This should work in theory, but I have two ideas regarding that: Copy the downloaded debs to /var/cache/apt/archives/ instead of installing them with dpkg -i. Thats where apt checks for packages and downloads them to. And probably even better: Check out apt-zip: APT-ZIP is a package to update a non-networked computer using apt and a (removable) media ...

Short answer is No. What you are saying is an Ubuntu running without internet which in itself is pretty bad because you don't get OTA Updates for your version and your bugs will not get removed and neither will repository support be available. This is not recommended for Ubuntu as it will have you running on a flavor that is not supported by the ...

I just figured out how to solve the problem in my case. I don't know if this is best practice or not, but I basically kept trying to run sudo apt-get remove codeblocks to get an error code and see which components of codeblocks were installed and had dependency errors.

You're right, yad isn't available for 15.04 using the officially Ubuntu repositories. Wily (15.10) has the package. To use the package with Vivid, you need an PPA sudo apt-add-repository ppa:webupd8team/y-ppa-manager sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install yad

It is not safe to accept the removal of python2.7 because uninstalling python2.7 will also remove a lot of other packages that you need.

In order to do this, you need to repair your package catalog. Fixing ...

It seems that cinnamon does in fact use the opencv library for webcam access. Found the related github issue here: krasnoglaz commented on 12 Oct 2013 I've found out that opencv is used for webcam access in /files/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/modules/cs_user.py script.

I dont know why you are unable to locate the package, but you could download it from packages.ubuntu.com and install it manually. Go to the location of the downloaded file and type: dpkg -i libcurl4-gnutls-dev_7.35.0-1ubuntu2.5_i386.deb

The package for cinnamon includes information about which other packages must be installed for it to work, these are dependencies. The python-opencv package is required for cinnamon, but not the other way around (obviously). The "correct" solution would be to find a later version of python-opencv which is packaged as a .deb file so that the package manager ...

I had the same problem. I have a System76 laptop where I had installed the Kubuntu desktop. The problem with apt-get is it tries to be a little too magical here.

The problem is, the normal way doesn't work in your control file for Build-Depends. Build-Depends: g++ (>= 5.1.0) But you could use g++-5.1 Build-Depends: g++-5.1 But this more like a cheat and will fail on all systems with g++ newer than 5.1.

I've asked the server team to take a look at this and while they work out an answer I can say that the solution on StackExchange pertains to "Hash Sum Mismatch" issues which are not seen in your output.

It looks like my Broadcomm Wireless drivers do not play well with latest Ubuntu 14.04 updates. I just removed debian packages bcmwl-kernel-source and dkms. The packages might very well run fine, but apt-get upgrade hangs, and I don't want to to deal with contantly freezing updates. Now I can run 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' and smooth sailing.
