Normally, you can enable the universe and multiverse repositories through the terminal: sudo add-apt-repository universe sudo add-apt-repository multiverse But as you are using 14.10 which is outdated, the official repositories have been moved to a different location and this won't work. Please upgrade your system! This question will be helpful: How to ...
The ceph charm's "source" config option can be used in a number of ways. As long as the local repo is also served and accessible by remote systems (such as http://), the source config option can be used. Here is an excerpt from the config.yaml file in the charm: source: type: string default: description: | Optional configuration to ...
http://askubuntu.com/a/37754 solved my issue. enclosed a short snippet from the original answer: on the top in your /etc/apt/sources.list file should be all that is needed to make it automatically pick a mirror for you based on your geographical location. deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt trusty main restricted universe multiverse deb ...
Thank you for your answer. I've found the following solution with pinning of apt and set priority's. Apt Pinning (ubuntuusers.de)
You can hold back a specific package so that it will never get upgraded automatically, neither through the official repositories, nor through your personal PPAs or whatever source. The command is simple, just replace PACKAGE_NAME with the package name you want to hold back. You can also enter a space-separated list of packages: sudo apt-mark hold ...
Have you tried this: sudo -i sudo apt-get update --fix-missing and then enter update manager, and fix broken package, and it might work fine this way.
Thanks BobDodds! If anybody would be interested, I have updated your code a little (hope you don't mind).. This script will type out only user added PPAs (/etc/apt/sources.list.d). #!/bin/bash # My ~/bin/mk_repositories_restore_script mkdir -p ~/bin x=~/bin/restore_repositories echo \#\!/bin/bash > $x chmod u+x $x ( for ...
In my case, it was giving messages for *.save files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory. I removed them. Now only *.list files exist in there. And those warnings diminished.
Sadly Unity-Mail is no longer developed for the following reasons: Dead upstream (I no longer have time to develop it). Thunderbird has good Unity integration nowadays (unity-mail was written when it was not the case). unity-mail is incompatible with Unity 8. No reverse depends. As long as we are not using Unity8 we can still install it ...
Install Skype by executing: sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) partner" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install skype That's it ! ... no less - no more ... ;)
Open Software & Updates --> Enable Canonical Partners repository Reload (or execute : sudo apt-get update) Open a terminal and execute : sudo apt-get install skype
These files are left-overs from before and after your upgrade: verify these with the same files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d and look which files in that directory contain any meaningful data. The empty files in sources.list.d and their counterparts in trusted.gpg.d can be safely deleted.
You can rsync a mirror out. The benefit of this is you can update by just running the command again. The downside is that you're downloading everything... We're talking hundreds of gigabytes. If you just want to cache updates between lan clients, a caching proxy is probably a better idea. But assuming you want everything, let's start by creating a ...
I had a similar problem, during installation of eclipse. openjdk-7-jdk was required, and among packages to install, this was not found. I used > sudo apt-get update > sudo apt-get install eclipse eclipse-cdt and it found openjdk. I do not mean that you install eclipse, of course, but this experience may be helpful.
I don't think there is much difference. But instead take a look at apt-cacher-ng for an alternative way of doing mostly the same thing, with less work for you and less bandwidth waste. deb/apt-mirror blindly copies all files (even if some are never used) from the distro/architecture/version you specify, periodically according to cron, etc. But ...
For those who just want to check the PPAs they have installed without actually doing anything with them automatically you can do: $ apt-cache policy In my system, here's a bit of what it shows: % apt-cache policy Package files: 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status release a=now 500 http: ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-toolchain-r/test/ubuntu/ precise/main ...
