as said in the comment , the official repo is here https://github.com/joyent/node/wiki/Installing-Node.js-via-package-manager#debian-and-ubuntu-based-linux-distributions only an install from source worked out of the box on my side

You can achieve what you aim for, by creating two meta packages (that only contain dependencies) that provide a virtual package (that exists to declare some functionality that some other package can provide). So: Package: nvidia-dependencies-340 Provides: nvidia-dependencies Depends: nvidia-340 (>=340.29), nvidia-340-uvm (>=340.29), nvidia-340-dev ...

The package is trying to overwrite files which are maintained by a different package. The dpkg error indicates that the insight package is trying to overwrite a file managed by gdbserver. You can't have two packages managing the same file in the packaging system's mind, so it errors. I would suggest that you investigate the PPA and reach out to the PPA ...

It's not about the g++. Check if you don't have any extra space or newline characters. If everything follows Makefile standard it should be ok. Additionally, check if you have specified the path correctly. I hope I'll help somebody else, because I think you're over that problem.

It may not be possible in a fully general sense, but if your deb came from Debian or Ubuntu directly (i.e., not a third-party deb), then it is required to be reproducible by autobuilders which do something like the following: Start with a bare system- all Essential: yes or Priority: Required packages, plus build-essential, and any extra dependencies of ...

aftershot2? It is some proprietary manually installed package. Try to remove it if you don't need it: sudo apt-get remove aftershot2

It's sudo apt-get install httrack Note the install command before the package name parameter. See the Man Page.

Try the following commands sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get clean You could also try sudo dpkg --configure -a If this works then you can perform an update using sudo apt-get upgrade --fix-missing I think these commands will solve your problem. if not solved post your output here.

deb We are a debian based system so our files end in .deb and lots of people call those "deb installer file" or "debian installer file". And the page you refer to is Redhat; Debian/Ubuntu has its own page and even a page referring to the deb file format. And the "package format" page lists them all: Examples .apk – used by Android .appx, .appxbundle — ...

Tracing back to conflict between minidlna and sophos Anti virus (still don't know why they go in a loop while apt update), Uninstalled sophos using sudo sh /opt/sophos-av/uninstall.sh Now I am able to proceed. Hope it helps some one else facing this issue.

One issue is that the sav-* scripts mentioned in your output seem to be missing a LSB-header. If that is some Sophos Antivirus stuff, better ask Sophos about it. If all else fails, try to add the LSB tags manually to /etc/init.d/sav-web and the other two.

As Suggested by Aravinda above, this is what I did: I ran sudo apt-get purge fglrx then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade . See comments above.

Apparently it some sort of powerful SQL thing. I am not sure what exactly. However in this case the problem was that it was a leftover file in /etc/init.d/ that famously gets in the way of upgrades. I moved it with sudo mv /etc/init.d/virtuoso-nepomuk ~ which stuck it in my home folder to be dealt with later.

TL;DR: You can use reverse-depends src:$(what-source libsslcommon2). There is no libsslcommon2 source package. Instead, libsslcommon2 is one of a number of binary packages built from the qpid-cpp source package. In general, a binary package may or may not have the same name as the source package used to build it, and source packages may provide multiple ...


2

The reverse-depends software doesn't automatically detect the source package from which a given binary package is generated. The src: label is used to indicate that what follows is the name of a source package. It so happens that the name of the source package for bash is, well, bash. But for libsslcommon2, the source package is named qpid-cpp: $ ...

There are a number of vector drawing programs that support DXF files to varying degrees, and have commandline convert capabilities, including dia, inkscape, and even libreoffice. dia appears to support dxf input and png output e.g. dia jcsample.dxf -e jcsample.png or, with explicit output dimensions, dia jcsample.dxf -s 744x1052 -e jcsample.png ...

This seems to be a bug of apt. Version 1.0.1 is affected. We've built version 1.0.9.2 from source, and it behaves as expected: reports unmet dependencies and exits with non-zero status. Perhaps this is the same bug: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=745046

I ran into this after upgrading from one LTS to another and trying to update flash. It complained about WINE (and then others) and refused to to do anything. So I did this.

Just follow up these steps Open up /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.vidalia file with root permissions. For this you can run sudo gedit /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.vidalia in a Terminal. Add this line /usr/bin/tor Ux, anywhere inside the /usr/bin/vidalia {...} block. Place of this line in that block does not matter. Run sudo apparmor_parser --replace ...

You can just "resolve" this by installing all pending updates. The message will go away. It is rather annoying, but there's not much you can do about it. For more information check this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/pipelight/+bug/1318321

Just saw that I never explained how I finally get that source package to be built and accepted by Launchpad :) As GDevelop is open source, the best thing to do for someone looking to create such a package would be to look at the script making the source package for the software: https://github.com/4ian/GD/blob/master/Binaries/Packaging/PackageForUbuntu.sh ...

The upstream version of Python 2.7 in Ubuntu 14.04 will always be 2.7.6. However, the distribution version (8 in 2.7.6-8) will change. 2.7.9 will be part of Ubuntu 15.04. If you really want this version you can download source code and compile it.

You are getting instructions to take two actions: Use apt-get autoremove to remove them. So do a sudo apt-get autoremove. This isn't likely the root of your problem but it sure looks like your packages are a bit out of whack. Perhaps an install failed partway through and left garbage? Not sure but the autoremove seems to always just work for me so I ...

I researched my error further and found that it was caused by low disk space. (I was somehow at 100% use and 0 bytes free). I was able to enter the console and delete some files and then everything was working as normal.

What worked for me is to re-install the dependency. It is the case where the installed version is more recent than the latest (what synaptic shows). It is actually equivalent to allow synaptic to downgrade the dependency package.

How are they different from the previous "The following ones are kept up-to-date on CRAN"? The recommended packages are maintained by the R Core team. On CRAN there is special versioned directory for these packages. E.g. for R 3.0.2 it is CRAN-mirror/src/contrib/3.2.0/Recommended/. If you build R on your own, you can find a directory ...

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.

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 ...

Use "aptitude" to solve the problem. sudo apt-get install aptitude sudo aptitude remove mysql-apt-config Now follow the proposed solutions.

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.

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.
