On Ubuntu, the major-versions of software included are fixed within a distribution. Because you usually don't get upGRADES with new functions in a stable distribution (ie Ubuntu 14.10), only upDATES which fix actual problems. Major changes are applied to the next release of the distribution (ie Ubuntu 15.04). So an upgraded version might be coming with the ...

There are many ways to find whether a package is installed or not in Ubuntu. For example if we want to find whether vim is installed or not in Ubuntu we can use any of the following commands: dpkg -s vim dpkg --get-selections | grep 'vim' #I always prefer this one as it shows other packages that has the pattern `vim` in their names, very useful in some ...

For saving the entire output of dpkg -l to a file: dpkg -l > ~/Desktop/packages and open with a text editor: nano ~/Desktop/packages

You can list all installed packages via dpkg like this dpkg -l You can then pipe that through grep to only find the things you are interesting in: dpkg -l | grep libgmp10 Or you can be less specific in your grep dpkg -l | grep libgmp Grep will find any line in the output with that string. Installing is easy also sudo apt-get install ...

Use sudo apt-get install $package-name1 $package-name2 $package-name3, as many packages as you want. If they are already installed, it will say $package-name is already the newest version.

This was fixed due to the help of @g_p and @muru, who pointed out the low disk space issue. Specifically @muru's link helped a lot. Be careful though, that you don't do what I did, and end up removing files that are actually important to the running of the PC (like the network). :)

Apart from @muru answer, if you want to find all the available package in your local repo server from a local Ubuntu system, you can use metadata file of each package resource specified in sources.list which is present in /var/lib/apt/lists/. Only requirement is that your Ubuntu system should be configured to receive update from your local server. For ...

Locally (that is, on the server), you can run: find /location/of/repo/ -type f -name '*.deb' Remotely, you can fetch the Packages file and grep it: wget -qO - http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty-security/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz \ | zgrep -Po '(?<=^Package: ).*'

It looks like there is something wrong with your perl configuration. Try command sudo dpkg-reconfigure perl-base then try apt-get again. If it doesn't work please post the output of both commands here. Edit Based on your answer - your Perl installation is missing essential files and this is preventing the package manager to fix it. Have you tried ...

dpkg --get-selections only output the package selection states not package states. Output of dpkg -l contains the the package actual states however processing dpkg -l output is bit tough because of being more closer to the graphical approach. So if you want to extract the package state , you can use dpkg-query tool. It provide formatting option using ...

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.

Right now the options are very limited. The available apps can be found by running: snappy search '*'

In the debian/install file, add this line (or only use this line, if there aren't any others in there): moduleFileName /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ You basically use the same line format for each file (or directory): filename /path/to/destination/

It is not really clear what you want - the location of the package or the location of the installed application... For an installed package dpkg -L packagename lists all the files.

dpgk -c /var/cache/apt/archive/packagename.deb You can pick -c or --contents. Or if you use wajig, wajig contents /var/cache/apt/archive/packagename.deb does the same.

If you have disabled all repositories then this is the problem for the application which you are trying to install is from one of those repositories. So you would either need to activate them all, or find the specific one which this software uses and activate that one.

That repo only has a pgl package. If you look at the package files you'll see it provides binaries for all those commands. That's all you need to install. sudo apt-get install pgl I should also add that this PPA only ships versions for lucid-trusty. If you're using something newer (eg 14.10), this won't work. Talk to its maintainer.

You could try and run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade which does update more packages as the normal "upgrade" package would do. Also a call to sudo apt-get check and sudo apt-get -f can't hurt.

I don't know exactly what you did, but I'd guess that you're correct that your "the disabled update sources" broke everything. (And your software sources should have nothing to do with suspend/sleep... even updating has to be manually initiated, so again once it's finished it shouldn't affect suspend/sleep). apt relies upon the software sources to know where ...

The package distribute 0.7.3 is a deprecated fork of Setuptools, install it only if you can't install Setuptools and need a compatibility layer. Before anything, execute in a terminal (xterm or Terminal are both fine) sudo apt-get install python-setuptools to install the distribution version of setuptools. If you really need to proceed, follow this ...

apt-get insists on fixing any broken packages before doing anything else. Use dpkg -r pkgname to remove the packages directly instead. After clearing those out, the run apt-get install -f to fix the broken packages.

So I ended up using Synaptic to correct the problem. No package were broken, but by navigating through all the packages involved, I selected & removed all those marked for audio files. That is because I tried to install Rythme Box and although I could open it, it was very buggy. I had previously used it and it was fine. That led me to think that there ...

Maybe it's only certain sources that include the ability to update. The linked you posted states that when you install with dpkg it bypasses apt and therefore won't get updated. As a test I searched what version of nodejs is available in Utopic (v0.10.25) and then installed nodejs (v0.10.20) using checkinstall I downloaded and extracted then ran: ...

The package manager doesn't care whether a package has been installed by dpkg or apt. If it finds a newer version of a package in the repositories that newer version gets installed. In your case that means your package gets updated if the package in the new Ubuntu version has a higher version number. See "How to prevent updating of a specific package?" if ...

Now the problem is moot, but for the future: Always use the same removal method as the installation method. Therefore, use the following priority in installing software Install/remove from the standard Ubuntu repositories using the GUI of the Ubuntu Software center. Use the TUI of aptitude apt-get install szPackageName to install and apt-get purge ...

By chance, have you done a recent update? Maybe try an update with Synaptic by reloading and apply any updates then try installing VLC through Synaptic after checking for broken packages. I had a weird instance installing VLC in Zorin OS 9 and if memory serves me correctly this is what worked. Worth a quick try, anyways.

Occasionally one might want to hold back all the packages currently installed. Here's how.
