I had this problem before. MySQL Daemon will be started just right after configuring the package, and if there is any errors in MySQL configuration or problems with accessing data directory, then the job will fail.

Try a reinstall of nvidia-304 first (sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-304), then purge it afterwards. I think this is caused by the DKMS module being missing so it couldn't remove fully, causing the error.

When you type in file | apt-key add - you tell the system to execute the file and feed the output to apt-key.

The system reads the few bytes at the beginning of the file ...

The reason you pull in new kernel versions is that you have the shell package linux-image-generic installed, which does not contain the kernel image itself but at any given time depends on the most recently released kernel package. This is why you get a new kernel version installed even though its package name is different, containing the version number. ...

The article you're using as a guide is very old - and was written for a version of Xubuntu from 3 years ago, which is no longer supported.

Okay. I solved the problem by doing this: $:sudo aptitude install libcurl4-openssl-dev It firstly gave me one naive solution to accept which I didn't take.

If you look with dpkg -S <filename>, you'll see that these files actually came from a package called nginx-common. This is installed at the same time as the base nginx package.

The latest version of PHP in Ubuntu 12.04 is currently 5.3.10-1. Given that you have 5.5.20-1, you clearly are using a third party PHP package, rather than the Ubuntu one.

With no other info (apt-get install -f and "synaptic" don't work?), right now I'd guess you have conflicting software sources. Resetting them to defaults might work.

This includes the location where it would be installed, probably /usr/some_folder. This means you cannot change this location by using a deb file. The only way to do this is to get the source code, modify it and ...

No, at the moment all you see is all you get. Snappy has just been launched, and it will take some time before applications get packaged for it.
