16.04 is new and all packages are not ready to use in all servers. The problem is not about nvidia drivers or anything about broken pacages. Using Main Server to download packages solve my problem. System Settings Software & Updates Select "Main Server" from "Download from" section

You linked to the source package, but the python-support package definitely does exist in the binary repositories: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/+package/python-support I'm not sure why it doesn't show up in the source repos -- maybe because it's just a Python script that can be executed directly, rather than something that requires compilation into ...

I changed my download server and it worked like charm. Here is how you can do it 1.Open 'software and updates' and click the 'Ubuntu Software' tab. Click 'Download from' and choose 'Other' Click 'Select Best Server'. Ubuntu will take some time to select the best server for you. Accept it. Now try running the software update again. It should work. If it ...

You have a problem with the package system, not with the driver itself. It is quite a common problem. One of the solutions is: sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get install -f sudo dpkg --configure -a Another possible solution is to use synaptic package manager to fix the broken packages (it will prompt you to do that automatically) and then you'll be able to ...

As of 29 April 2016, the accepted answer is no longer the correct procedure. It is now self-service: you can change an option in the PPA settings to get it to build for any of the following architectures automatically (documentation link): AMD x86-64 (amd64) ARM ARMv8 (arm64) ARM ARMv7 Soft Float (armel) ARM ARMv7 Hard Float (armhf) Intel x86 (i386) ...

I'm currently using Xubuntu but since they both rely on same repositories, the solution will probably be the same. Firstly, the reason for this problem is the out-dated configuration of the Ubuntu Turkish repo servers. After trying a handful of solutions, I've edited the repo sources and finally I can install Steam in peace. Maybe this is the exact reason ...

A 'band-aid' solution is to run the following from the command line: export MANPATH=":/snap/tmux/current/share/man" and then the command man tmux will work as well as all of your pre-exisiting man pages. Bear in mind that Ubuntu does not normally use $MANPATH and the standard man pages PATH can be seen as follows: andrew@athens:~$ man -w ...

Finally I found a solution or a workaround: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=python-support I picked the following ppa: https://launchpad.net/~syseleven-platform/+archive/ubuntu/xenial-ports and I could install python-support and webilder 0.7.3.1 on ubuntu 16.04

This answer http://askubuntu.com/a/258598/116889 helped me figure out how to do it by downloading the .deb packages from MySQL dev site. The solution about adding the PPA did not do it for me. It links to a blogpost available here: http://www.peterchen.net/2013/02/20/en-how-to-install-mysql-5-6-on-ubuntu-12-04-precise/ Tricky but it works.

They haven't been purged because there's no reason to. The kernel files left are mostly those concerning dpkg. There's no harm in having them around. As for purging them: aptitude purge '~c'

Until Atlassian fixes the repo you can download the deb file and use dpkg to install: wget https://atlassian.artifactoryonline.com/atlassian/hipchat-apt-client/pool/HipChat4-4.0.1517-Linux.deb sudo dpkg -i HipChat4-4.0.1517-Linux.deb

The python package would need to be recompiled to use the /usr/local prefix which would mean modifying the source package, you could download the source using apt-get source python2.7 and modifying the debian/rules file to compile with the /usr/local prefix but then apt would still see it as another newer replacement for python2.7 unless you renamed the ...

Updates should still work normally once a newer version of the kernel is available from any of your defined software sources. If you are interested you can see which version apt considers newer with this command: dpkg --compare-versions [version1] gt [version2] The exit status will be 0 if apt considers version1 newer or 1 otherwise.

Perhaps add (?:\.gz|\.bz2|\.xz)? on to the end of the expression you inserted. On my nearest mirror, the only *.yml files are actually *.yml.gz. My install of apt-cacher-ng was having the same problem, modifying it's regexp in the way you mentioned (with addition, the syntax was also slightly different) solved it for me.

beecrypt has been removed from Debian, and thus from Ubuntu as well, due to it being unmaintained by its developers and not used by any other package in Debian. Hopefully Canon will soon provide a package which does not depend on it, but in the meantime it should be fine to install the Wily package. You can also try to look for third-party repositories ...

snap packages are installed through the snap command.

I was getting the exact same error. In the Software & Updates changing the server from my local country to Main server, and also adding the Canonical Partners from the "Other Software" tab helped installing the openssh-server in my case. I am not sure which of the two helped.

I was having the same issue after upgrading to 16.04. What I did was change the permissions on gvfsd-smb-browse so that it can only be executed as sudo or by root.

You have two repositories which provide MySQL: the official Ubuntu 14.04 ones provide MySQL 5.5, and the official MySQL ones provide 5.7. This is why you cannot manually install 5.6 packages without some forcing, it would be better to go with either 5.5 or 5.7. In that case you should: Uninstall all residual 5.6 packages, you can find them with dpkg -l | ...

No, it's nothing serious. The programmers forgot to add a few lines of code that are needed now but not in previous releases. But that just causes this warnings to be displayed.

I've got the same problem as what you say. But I found the reason at last: I shouldn't use the ctrl+c and ctrl+v to run the three commands at a time: 1.sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF 2.echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main" | sudo tee ...

"Soon" is a strange concept in something with supported releases, like Ubuntu. 16.04 is supported into 2020 so apt-get will be around as a primary tool at least until then. As pure conjecture, it might be relegated to an alias (or something like that) one day but getting rid of it completely could cause significant scripting issues. A complete change of ...

From the official Debian package management page: "Recommends" This declares a strong, but not absolute, dependency. Most users would not want the package unless all of the packages listed in this field are installed. "Suggests" This declares a weak dependency. Many users of this package may benefit from installing packages listed in ...

Use sudo apt purge python2.7-minimal to completely remove Python2 and everything that depends on it. As there are still a lot of packages that depend on Python2 (like Samba and VirtualBox) you should have a close look at the packages that apt wants to remove before you let it proceed.

My Virtualbox does not work. It starts but could not execute any of the machines. The solution I found was: sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms and then: sudo modprobe vboxdrv

You don't have any software sources configured, which means something went wrong with your installation. As there may be more problems I'd install the system again. Make sure you use an official up-to-date Xubuntu image. If you want to try to repair your system you can use for example https://repogen.simplylinux.ch/ to create a new sources.list After ...

main, universe, multiverse, resricted are different components of the Sections portion in a sources.list entry and can not be duplicated for a given entry (same Type (e.g. deb), URI (e.g. http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/) , Suite (e.g. xenial)). In your /etc/apt/sources.list, you have duplicate components (main, restricted, universe) in lines 2 and 5: deb ...

Some packages can't be uninstalled if some dependencies are gone, or some configuration files have been deleted for some reason. You will end up with a package that is not completely installed nor completely uninstalled. The solution, in this case, is to sudo apt-get install the package. If necessary, do sudo apt-get install --reinstall [package]. Missing ...

nvidia-330 (actually, all nvidia-3XX packages from nvidia-310 onwards) are transitional packages that actually install nvidia-340. If you want an older driver, use nvidia-304 instead.

Not exactly a straight answer, but, as you have mentioned, how about you create a list of packages available on both versions of Ubuntu (10.04 and 14.04) and then compare it using diff? You can create this list executing the commands below on each server: $ sudo apt-get update $ dpkg -l > packages_version.txt Where version could be an identification of OS ...

It sounds like you really messed something up bad. Try this: Boot from Live DVD/USB Mount your / partition if not already mounted Copy all your files from your old installation onto another drive (preferably an external USB) Reinstall Ubuntu 16.04, with a clean install Copy all your files back into the new installation. That should do it. Without more ...

Remove these packages, as you might not have it installed from official repo.

You didn't say which operating system version you use, so I would first try to search for it, giving different package names, like ssh, ssh AND client etc etc. Open Terminal windows and try make few searches and check whether package description says about ssh/ssh client. sudo apt-cache search XXX ...where XXX is one of the following: openssh, ssh, ...

No, you can not have different versions of the same package installed at the same time. Usually dependencies are expressed as at least version X. For packages that are all built from the same source however, the dependency is often exact. This is what you have run into. libncurses5 and libtinfo5 are both built from the ncurses source package. If you ...
