Apparently you downloaded or installed the install command of exercism.io into /usr/local/bin. Move it to another location that is not in your $PATH, or remove it if you don't need it anymore.

You using this repository and there is no version 11.2.202.468ubuntu0.14.04.1 You should use the main server in this case or wait some days until the repository has been updated. If you do not want to wait, then use the command below sudo -i sed 's/ubuntu-archive\.locaweb\.com\.br/archive\.ubuntu\.com/g' /etc/apt/sources.list

Nothing really, most of the important stuff either depends on the iproute2 package (ifupdown, isc-dhcp-client, …) or uses the kernel interfaces (through libnl-3-200) directly (network-manager, hostapd, iw, …). Of course some older software (especially software installed from outside of the repository) might still expect net-tools commands to be present as ...

The current version of postgresql-9.3 in trusty main is 9.3.7-0ubuntu0.14.04. To install 9.3.9-0ubuntu0.14.04 you need trusty-updates main.

I don't agree with levlaz's answer, when meta packages are removed, related packages are listed in automatically installed and are no longer required list. APT will not force you remove them, only if you run explicitly apt-get autoremove to remove them. AFAIK, It looks like a package version or a package architecture conflict: The following NEW packages ...

I don't think this has anything to do with when you isntalled iproute. The only time that massive packages get removed like this from my experience is when you remove packages that are linked to meta packages. For example if you remove Evolution, it likes to remove a whole bunch of gnome stuff since the gnome stuff were dependencies for Evolution and by ...

I am not familiar with this distro of Ubuntu... However, you could take a peek at the .bash_history(sp?) for any other people that may have rights to make changes to your server. Another option if you input 'N' at the very last is to try and run apt-get -f install and see if that doesn't help. That command 'should' fix your broken packages problem.

You could use a hook for apt to run a script after each invocation of apt-get/dpkg. A script that will list all installed package and commit the new list in a git repo For example, in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99-dpkg-snapshot DPkg::Post-Invoke {"/usr/bin/dpkg -l > /root/apt.git/dpkg-list.txt; git commit -a -m `date +%Y%m%d%H%H%S` -C /root/apt.git"; }; and ...

I don't know much about Ubuntu package policies, but the search for "ld" of Free Pascal can be overriden using the -XP parameter. The -XP parameter specifies a prefix that prefixes all calls to binutils with this prefix, and can be added to FPC's fpc.cfg to make it a default. If you want to have the gold utils default, just create symlinks to say ...

Normal deb files do not contain all data you need, except that you can get by dpkg-deb --info or look into DEBIAN/control file.

Use this: dpkg-deb --info <deb file> Prefer to use apt if you need them to be signed.

As I take from our conversation in the comments, you have no software sources configured. This can be due to the following reasons: No sources were configured on installation. (is this even possible?) The software sources were removed accidentally or maliciously deliberately. They were lost due to another reason, which would most likely indicate a system ...

Run this command in Terminal: uname -r Only if the output is not: 3.16.0-40-generic ... you can remove the packages. Afterwards, reboot the machine and try again, maybe you have upgraded your kernel without rebooting after upgrading.

TL;DR: it's ok, really What you have there is exactly the response that sudo apt-get install some-software-name gives. It's very common to use apt-get on Ubuntu as an alternative to Software Center, which is a bit slow. I don't understand why you are running some script, when you can just use sudo apt-get install package-name-1 package-name-2 package-name-3 ...

Run: sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install r-base This may fix the problem for you, otherwise check here for additional troubleshooting.

There are ways that you could do this for an OS, but I'm not sure how transferable from distro to distro it would be. You could do it (using apt & dpkg) for Debian based distros and it would probably work fairly consistently. But there are plenty of distros that don't use apt/dpkg and so it almost certainly wouldn't work for those. E.g. Fedora uses yum ...

You can use apt-mark: apt-mark showhold this will show the packages that are kept in "hold" state so that the pacakge manager won't auto upgrade the packages. From man apt-mark: showhold showhold is used to print a list of packages on hold

Use dpkg dpkg -l | grep "^hi" The -l means to list all packages which are then piped into grep. The regular expression "^hi" means to search for all lines that begin with "hi" which are initials for "hold" and "installed". By default, dpkg -l will list the status, package name, version, architecture, and a short description.

I know that's an old question, but did you try install all language packs through apt-get? I could solve a similar problem where I would need lots of different locales in a server and solved it running sudo apt-get install language-pack-*. It downloaded all the files (about 2GB when finished unpacking) and generated all the available locales.

Just point your package users to add PPA with source option: sudo add-apt-repository -s ppa:pierre-barbierdereuille/ppa instead of binary builds only: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pierre-barbierdereuille/ppa Reference: man add-apt-repository -s, --enable-source Allow downloading of the source packages from the repository

Because they depend on something you just said to remove - openssl is the dependency in question. None of those programs can run without it.

I would verify that /etc/apt/sources.list is set for utopic. Then I would apt-get remove every package that has unmet dependencies when apt-get dist-upgrade launched.
