Something's gone wrong with your apt keys or adding/changing repos or something... I don't know what What did you do that caused these errors, and what fixes have you tried? But here are some band-aid solutions for your symptoms: To just add the missing keys, this command should work (replace the "2EA8..." string with your acutal missing keys) sudo ...

My personal advice would be to meticulously copy down the names of all the software programs you personally installed, back up your data to external media, wipe the drive and start over, but I realize that's not what you are requesting. I've used Lubuntu very little, being primarily an Ubuntu user, but when I go to the update page for any of my older Ubuntu ...

I had to remove unity-services package which alowed me to reinstall ubuntu-desktop and unity successfully. After reboot Unity didn't start because it was disabled and probably wrongly configured. I installed CompizConfig Settings Manager which I used to enable Ubuntu Unity Plugin with. Check this post to see how to enable Ubuntu Unity Plugin and reset it to ...

Well, I ended up creating an AWS instance based on Ubuntu 13.04, and then move all python packages over from EC2 to my server. This did not fix the problem with apt-get and dpkg, but it let me run other python-based commands (e.g. ufw and do-release-upgrade). Then I used do-release-upgrade to switch to Saucy and then Trusty. There were some errors during ...

Type these commands: sudo apt-get autoclean sudo apt-get clean sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get update If it doesn't solve the issue, type sudo apt-get dist-upgrade as the 5th step from the above. I hope it can rectify the issue.

apt-get update updates only the package lists. To upgrade the packages you have to run: sudo apt-get upgrade or sudo apt-get dist-upgrade More info here. If you ran the above commands but the packages still were not upgraded, probably you didn't add Ondřej Surý's PHP5 PPA to your system. Run the following: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ondrej/php5 ...

I see you have errors like this: python2.7: not found It means the python 2.7 executable cannot be found. I have used these command to find the package containing it (that would probably not work on your broken system, however) $ which python2.7 /usr/bin/python2.7 $ dpkg -S /usr/bin/python2.7 python2.7-minimal: /usr/bin/python2.7 You need to reinstall ...

Is there a way to reinstall python on ubuntu without just doing a clean wipe? Yes. Re-install without formatting. It will also be the quickest method fixing this since you probably already have a Live DVD.

In the future don't do this. Do not manually remove (or otherwise mess with) any files installed via package management tools (unless they are explicitly set up for this like configuration files, etc.). That being said if you are unable (and it looks like this might be the case) to use apt-get to recover from this situation because there are parts of the ...

Open a terminal and type the following commands: First, try sudo apt-get -f install If that doesn't work, try sudo dpkg --configure -a If you are still left with problems, run sudo apt-get install --reinstall python python-chardet python-colorama python-distlib python-django python-django-tables2 python-six python-html5lib python-lxml ...

That's expected behaviour. Deleting files is not the same as uninstalling a package or program. You've deleted all the python related stuff from your install, but your package manager doesn't know this. When you go to install Python again, apt expects all those files to still be there and doesn't bother trying to re-download them. As far as apt is ...

You should remove each package that gives you difficulties, then reinstall them. See http://askubuntu.com/a/32899/176376 for removal without removing dependancies. sudo dpkg -r --force-depends "package" sudo apt-get install "package" You should remove all of the problem ones first, and then install them again. Run a sudo apt-get install -f and sudo ...

Remove all old kernals (everything that has a revision number except what uname -r) I did a mod from the others (someone may have a better way of doing this) list everything installed and store to "to_remove.txt": dpkg -l linux-* | grep ii > to_remove.txt the second column is what you want (discard the rest) also make sure that you remove the entry ...

Your issue is that something between your VM and the 'outside' (that is, outside your computer) is blocking connections to the internet. You said you're using a Windows 7 host, and VirtualBox. Some steps to check: Make absolutely certain that your VM is set to either Bridged Mode (and linked to an actively-connected network adapter) or NAT. Check your ...

It seems that you can`t able to access Ubuntu archives (in.archive.ubuntu.com). May be you are not connected to the Internet. Change the VirtualBox network adapter to NAT mode. Then try again. NAT enables the Guest OS to access the Internet.

It depends on whether you value being on the bleeding edge or stability. If you're using rbenv to manage an existing codebase running on a lot of production servers, apt-get is a good choice. If you want to be sure you can run the latest version of Ruby, git clone is probably the best choice.

Can also use aptitude from the commandline sudo aptitude search xxxxx

I think your gcc is too old. the apt package system prefers your software to be up-to-date. do an 'apt-get update' then 'apt-get upgrade' OR try installing your flex software with the '--no-install-recommends' flag. seems the upgrade in question requires uninstall then new install.

OK, I had been using php 5.5.19+dfsg-1+deb.sury.org~precise+1 but, when I tried to install php5-mysql I got dependency issues. So then I removed php, php-common, figuring that it would only delete the program files, and leave the config pages alone. (I really like the config I have had) I restarted the webserver. Then, I reinstalled php5, and ...

try running sudo apt-get -f install it would correct the dependency issues

As to answer why , refer to the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels As you can see, apt is told to never autoremove the kernels , as told by another (script) file, /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal. And here it is: If your script-fu is good enough you could edit it to save only couple kernels, though I can't help you there as my script ...

As this page explains, you should remove old kernels manually, with a command like this for example: sudo apt-get autoremove linux-image-2.6.32-22-generic linux-image-2.6.32-21-generic Removing old kernels automatically is an advanced operation for experienced users. The same page explains this method too: dpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | ...

I assume you're using something later than Trusty. This isn't a problem in Trusty as gfortran is still at 4.8. Assuming a downgrade isn't a real solution, I'll just show you how Trusty has things laid out. You might want to check it's similar in whatever you're running to make sure my conclusions are sound: $ dpkg -S $(which gfortran) $(which gfortran-4.8) ...

What you can do is create a symbolic link (or a "shortcut") for gfortran-4.8 and name the shortcut gfortran. First, find out where gfortran-4.8 is actually located. You do that by running the command which gfortran-4.8. Let's say you get an output like this: /usr/bin/gfortran-4.8 What you would do is execute the following command to create the shortcut: ...

What you're looking for are Ubuntu Security Notifications and they are not clearly listed in the repositories. This page is the main Ubuntu Security Notifications listing. As for individual packages, updates which address security fixes are in their own special repository, the -security pocket. Using Synaptic, you can switch to the "Origin" view, and see ...

If you run those commands, you'll get any fixes that are in the repositories -- but those might not be, yet. If you have Update Notifier enabled (a tray widget), you'll get a notification whenever there are system or security updates (and security updates will be noted as such). Then you'll get the patches as soon as they're out for Ubuntu, without having ...

I think you're talking about checking a package's changelog? To see what's new, major big fixes, etc? Synaptic has an easy way to try & download changelogs. Or if the changelog isn't available or is too brief, the best way might be to note the available version, and go to the developer website & see hopefully more detailed changes.

I've decided to remove all packages that apt was suggesting me, including (muon-updater, qt-propeties and others as you can see on screenshot). I was afraid to do that, because it's very important packages, but all works just fine ;) But not every purge/remove command would suggest you to delete a huge amount of packages. I used this one: sudo ...
