I don't know if the repositories keep track of download counts, but Debian based systems have a (voluntary?) program known as the popularity contest. The Ubuntu popularity contest stats can be found at http://popcon.ubuntu.com/. It tracks installation counts, recency of usage, etc. You might be able to indirectly get the numbers you need from popcon.

I managed to solve it this way: apt-mark hold [packagename]

In case anyone is wondering, there's a much more sane and graceful way to do this. The last previous answer hopes to do the same thing, but that search fails since architectures are not actually part of package names, except in special cases. as root (or with sudo) run: aptitude remove ~i~ri386 If you don't use aptitude over apt-get already, do. It's ...

Just wanted to mention my own solution, at this point you can just open the terminal and run the command: sudo apt-get install universalindentgui And that's it! I experienced the same issue when trying to install the UniversalIndentGUI package from sourceforge. For whatever reason using apt-get instead works without problems.

Just to toot my own horn, I have creating a solution for this exact circumstance. You can have a debian archive downloaded, unpacked, built, and reinstalled with 3 simple commands. It is a shell script called debtool and is available on GitHub via the aforementioned link. As mentioned on the GitHub page, the script requires apt, dpkg, and fakeroot. It also ...

Unsure whether to post this as an answer or edit to my original post, but here goes: I had reason to believe Cinnamon was, at least partially, causing all the conflicts and whatnot (things in general weren't looking/working like they're supposed to) so I removed all associated packages with Synaptic, plus all other 3d party packages and then tried upgrading ...

This error occurs because the package you are trying to download and install requires libstdc++6 >=4.9. The latest version of libstdc++6 available on the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS repositories is 4.8.2-19ubuntu1, which is older than 4.9. I'm assuming that you're running Ubuntu 14.04, because the libstdc++6 package on your computer is stuck at 4.8.2-19ubuntu1. The ...

Your unmet dependencies problem is caused by the MySQL APT Repository repository. MySQL Server 5.6 from the MySQL APT Repository requires libstdc++6 >=4.9 however MySQL Server 5.6 (mysql-server-5.6) from the the default Ubuntu repositories requires libstdc++6 >=4.6. When you install the version of MySQL Server 5.6 from the Ubuntu Software Center, it ...

A good way to solve these problems is to use "aptitude". sudo apt-get install aptitude sudo aptitude update sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics Now several ways to solve the problem were proposed. Choose the solution that uninstalls the least packets. Write down what packages are removed. Install the packages again, you still need.

Have you tried installing the libgcc1 package that is requested? sudo apt-get install libgcc1:i386=1:4.9.2-0ubuntu1~12.04 or pin it: sudo sh -c "echo -e 'Package: libgcc1:i386\nPin: version 1:4.9.2*\nPin-Priority: 500' > /etc/apt/preferences.d/multiarch-libgcc1"

All the sources are commented out. Remove the "#" in front of the entries starting with "deb" in your sources.list.

First of all make a copy of every important files you have on the system! After that you can try the following: sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -f install && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade If that doesn't help, you should ...

So I fixed this and I feel really dumb for not knowing this. Okay, the problem was that at some point, I added the 1386 architecture instead of i386. So when I tried to update with apt-get, it couldn't download the 32-bit packages. Thanks.

As NGRhodes points out, there simply isn't a 14.04 version of this PPA. You say you get this for every PPA... If that's really the case, you're either picking a load of duff PPAs without checking they have a 14.04 version, there's something else going on. Anyway, for this one, you have a couple of options: You can continue as you are (in the hope that ...

... And I would like to make synaptic package manager as the default to open .deb installation files. ... Synaptic can not be used as the default program for DEB files, just like you want to. But you can try gdebi. sudo apt-get install gdebi Now you can set gdebi as the default application for DEB-files.

I have had the same issue with software center. Right click on the .deb package and select properties. Click on the Open With tab, select synaptic and click set as default. If synaptic is not available, you can install gdebi instead which is the recommended app to install deb packages by debian. You can install gdebi using the following command: sudo ...

Simplest way I can think of is sudo apt-get purge texlive*. Don't know how safe that is. After you purge everything. Reinstall from the other site. I am a big fan of sledgehammer solutions in favor of elegant surgery for desktop problems.

I had to force the version for the gcc-4.9-base package to get past the error message you posted. Then installing worked sudo apt-get install gcc-4.9-base=4.9.2-0ubuntu1~14.04 Now you can do the regular sudo apt-get install gcc-4.9

No, it will usually not cause any problems. amd64, also known as x64, x86_64 and x86-64 refers to the 64-bit version of the x86 instruction set. It was developed by AMD (hence the name amd64) as an alternative to Intel's and HP's IA-64 architecture, as a means to add 64-bit computing capabilities to the existing x86 architecture. Most recent Intel and AMD ...

AMD64 packages are for 64-bit processors and i386 are for 32-bit. AMD64 and i386 refers to the architecture, not the manufacturer. To answer the question "Is it a problem to have packages with “amd64” architecture when I have an intel cpu?" - no, it isn't. However, there may be some special cases when the amd64 package is known to have problems and the ...

I assume that your target program is a c/c++ or similar language. You can include all files in one binary packages. But still the best to separate development files in another one. *-dev (not -devel) should include only headers, statics libs, shared libs and even binary tools if these tools only used for development. You can declare multiple binaries ...

For dependency information, you can see /var/lib/dpkg/status, which basically lists the contents of debian/control (with some additional information about the package itself) for each installed package. Additionally, you can look into /var/lib/dpkg/info to see the files installed, pre/post (un)installation scripts (if any), and configuration files (if any) ...

Open the .deb file in file roller or whatever archiver you have on your system. Then go to the debian folder. In there, you will find the file control which contains the metadata.

The OP posted this solution as an edit (reproduced here with minor copy editing).

I think this apt official blog can explain everything. APT 1.0 was released on the 1. April 2014! The first APT version was announced on the 1. April exactly 16 years ago. The big news for this version is that we included a new “apt” binary that combines the most commonly used commands from apt-get and apt-cache. The commands are the same as their ...

You cannot install fontconfig-config:i386 (= 2.8.0-3ubuntu9.1) because 12.04 has a dependency. There was a metapackage which depend on fontconfig-config 2.10.x, so you should remove it.

The packages have a "raring" reference for different reasons. Most of them appear to be installed from PPA's such as this. These must be manually handled when Ubuntu is updated. Looking at your software sources, you should see the relevant PPA sources. You will have to manually update them to your current version, or you could use a tool like this. The PPA ...

It appears you made a mistake (or followed bad instructions) while attempting to add a software source for libdvdcss. Since your libdvdcss.list contains nothing of value--just terminal commands, where instead there should be deb lines--you can simply delete that file, then update the package manager's information about available software: sudo rm ...

dman Retrieves Manual Pages In practice, viewing a package's brief description (as mchid suggests) is usually what you'll want to see, to decide if you want the package.
