No its not a problem on your side.... I believe what is happening is that the archive http:// site has too many connections open. From what I recall in a similar situation, another mirror site would be selected to try to complete the download depending on settings.

There is an alternative, command line approach to getting installation history. The package manager apt seems to log everything in /var/log/apt/history.log and /var/log/apt/term.log, including separating everything by datestamps. Both contain similar, usable information but term.log is both more verbose and doesn't explicitly indicate what initiated the ...

It obviously means that the packge "software-center" could not be found. This may have many reasons. Check the file /etc/apt/sources.list to see whether it contains a line like this: deb http://*.archive.ubuntu.com/ .... Where the * may have been replaced by a subdomain (like de., fr., etc.) or also can be omnitted. If the line begins with a hash sign ...

first: sudo apt-get purge locales then: sudo aptitude install locales and the famous: sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales This rids the system of locales, then re-installs locales and downgrades libc6 from 2.19 to 2.13 which is the issue quite likely. Then configures locales again.

Package priority The priorities of package sources is defined in the local package configuration. This configuration can be inspected with apt-cache policy. Here is an example of what apt-cache policy shows for the package git that is available in the Ubuntu main package repository, and in a PPA, and the PPA version is currently installed: $ apt-cache ...

Too few details. I can guess. Maybe you are trying to virtualize a 64bit OS within a 32bit host. And if your host is 32bit, "no more than 2047 MB RAM" can be virtualized as PAE cound not apply to virtualization.

You can download Gnome Software here. Once downloaded expand the file, and look in the INSTALL file for information on how to install. You have to build the file from source, or you can take a look at this. Basically the steps to follow are: ./configure make make install

When upgrading from 13.10 to 14.04.1, I had a problem with broken packages, and when trying all the common things like apt-get -f install, I got an error, something like E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1). Instead of reinstalling and spending hours setting things up, I got my hands dirty, and eventually fixed. Here's how: Synaptic ...

You should make sure you are using one of the core window managers. For example I use openbox for systems that are not responsive enough for gnome and software-center fails in interesting ways. If I switch my session to gnome by running gnome-session from from the command line suddenly software center starts working.

Try to reinstall Software center using sudo apt-get update && apt-get install --reinstall software-center. In some cases like this deleting ~/.cache/software-center also worked.

For what it's worth, I believe that you can get around the Buy button now. I can confirm that I was able to install Steam on Ubuntu 12.04 using the method here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Valve#Alternative_Installation_Methods

I can understand that you could have missed it (it is kind of a "hidden feature"), but if you go to "Installed", only a small selection of the installed applications is shown (and findable). At the left bottom of the window however, there is a grey link, saying "show (number) more items". Click on it and you'll find sublime-text. If you click on "All ...

The easiest way to install/uninstall software in Ubuntu is through Synaptic package manager. It works faster than the Software Center, all you need to do is to press the search button and input some keywords for your search. But once you remove some piece of software you also have to run a command in a terminal to get rid of dependencies. So, in short, ...

I believe I have had this very problem and the answer is simple. The syntax is critical. It must look like this: Acquire::http::Proxy "http://x.y.z.251:9090"; (There is an extra ":" and a terminating ";")

This is a simple misunderstanding as there are many types of software in the software center. There is Free and Open Source software, that is not only free but licensed under a open source license. Then there is software available to buy this is usually proprietary but sometimes open source as a developer can make it easier to access by putting a lot of ...

Remove the natty-backports line (and any other natty line) from your sources.list. ("Natty" refers to Ubuntu 11.04, which is no longer supported and has been removed from the archive mirrors, hence the 404.)

You can run it from the command prompt but you need to know the directory it was installed. The default path is in /usr/local/MATLAB_VERSION where MATLAB_VERSION is the Matlab version you have installed. To run it just type: /usr/local/MATLAB_VERSION/bin/matlab & You can also create shortcut to your Desktop. You need to create a file using gedit ...

From the error message you're receiving, it seems like you have one or more "messed up" software sources configuration files. These configuration files can be found in the file /etc/apt/sources.list (for default ubuntu sources) and files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder for additional sources. Have a look at the files and see if you can identify the ...

Since you are not sure what you deleted, I suggest you to run sudo apt-get purge software-center to clear all files it left over. Then, you can reinstall from scratch by running sudo apt-get install software-center. Regarding the history of changes, there is a log file called .bash_history in your home folder which show the history of the commands you run ...

You could search the APT cache for it: apt-cache search <keyword/regex> E.g. if I wanted to install SuperTuxKart, but didn't know the package name, I'd use apt-cache search tux. This would return a list of packages whose name or short description contains this keyword or matches the regex. An extract from the search for tux: supertux-stable - ...

A 404 error tells you that the server was reached but doesn't have the requested file. For the first line you showed us there is http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/libq/libqapt/libqapt2_2.1.70-0ubuntu4.2_amd64.deb but not the libqapt2_2.1.70-0ubuntu4.1_i386.deb your system was requesting.

You shouldn't use sudo to open graphical applications as root. You should install the gksu package from the Ubuntu Software Center and use the gksudo command instead of sudo to open a graphical application as root. You shouldn't run software-properties-gtk as root either. If you need to be root, the application will prompt you in a popup window to ...

Unfortunately, this isn't too easy to fix. Proxies by nature are usually notoriously slow. The best way to fix this is to simply disable the proxy when not necessary. For example, if it is a business proxy, ONLY enable it when on-campus or when you need to access something on the company network. You can also contact the proxy administrator to see if they ...

The package files that Software Center and other package management tools download are stored in /var/cache/apt/archives. However, just picking up the packages from there won't do you much good. See How can I install software or packages without Internet (offline)? and understand that the Windows way of doing things does not always apply here.
