Usually this error is harmless. If you still want to recreate /var/lib/dpkg/available with the contents, open a terminal and type: sudo touch /var/lib/dpkg/available sudo sh -c 'for i in /var/lib/apt/lists/*_Packages; do dpkg --merge-avail "$i"; done' From man dpkg: --merge-avail With action --merge-avail, old information is combined with ...

I have removed my /var/lib/dpkg/available via sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/available and an installation is possible. Simply run the commands below: sudo apt-get install dselect sudo dselect update If the installation isn't possible, download the dselect package from here and install the package via the command below. I have used the 64-bit version for ...

wget --continue will download the file in multiple tries, if necessary. No need to "segment". sudo apt-get install wget; man wget. Then, you would do: wget --<wget options> --continue https://somesite.example.org/reallybigfile Repeat until done. The first time, --continue is ignored, and wget starts downloading. Network connection drops, wget ...

These two commands worked for me: sudo rm -rf /var/lib/update-notifier/package-data-downloads/partial/* sudo apt-get --purge --reinstall install ttf-mscorefonts-installer source: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/msttcorefonts/+bug/1371783

As far as I know, unless you're planning on using WUBI (which is no longer supported beyond Windows 7) you should be able to just download any of ISO files and put it on a USB stick or DVD and go from there. I haven't tested it myself, but it should work just fine and pretty much the same as it would for Windows 8/8.1. The biggest thing you would have to ...

There could be other background applications using network connection at that point of time. Check your proxy(if you use one) and firewall settings. It could be due to an error on the server which stored the file

Download speeds vary from time to time and from site to site. There are way too many variables to determine the problem by just one single download with nothing to compare to. Some sites get busy, some throttle the download speed and sometimes your ISP gets bogged down.

Just checked the wine site, and 1.4 is available from their PPA. Head to your terminal, and add the PPA manually: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa Then update your APT package information by: sudo apt-get update You should then be able to install 1.4 with the following command in the Terminal: sudo apt-get install wine1.4 Let me know if that ...

Based on the answer provided here, I have modified @Jacob Vlijm 's script as follows, so as to prevent Ubuntu from suspend while any upload or download in progress. You have to install xprintidle first. #!/usr/bin/env python3 #install xprintidle first, it is a binary written in C; see https://packages.debian.org/sid/xprintidle #This script is for ...

Inspired by @ByteCommanders second comment, the script below does what you describe: assuming the downloads folder is the directory you download into, it disables suspend during download, and subsequently waits for five minutes (arbitrary to set) before re- enabling suspend, to make sure the download is really finished. You can set any other directory to be ...

You will likely encounter problem with corrupted iso image. Simply re-download it.


1

Not really. If you have downloaded the ISO, you should check the hash if it is completed or not. Its better to use torrent. You can do a thing, download .torrent file and point the file location to the one you downloaded earlier. It will check the file and then complete the missing bytes. Then you can install Ubuntu using that ISO. :) There are step-by-step ...

You need the whole file of course to do an install First choice, try again later, could be a server issue. Better choice is to change the download type, try the torrent version, should not have this issue with that. On the same page as above you can also find alternative mirrors, pick one near you and then choose the version you would like.
