You can also use apt-fast to speed up downloads (if you have a high-bandwidth connection) and to resume interrupted downloads. I have apt-fast available for all supported versions of Ubuntu in my PPA. To use it to install Flightgear, you can just run sudo apt-fast install flightgear. The syntax is the same as for apt-get/aptitude (whichever you use).

Kubuntu isn't really compatible with Language Support.

The open source effort itself rarely makes much money. Donations perhaps. However, open source can be made to create an environment which is conducive to profit nearby.

Ubuntu, being a free and open source OS, does not limit you to the usage of free (as in freedom, not as in free beer, to quote Richard Stallman) software only. If you take a look into the Ubuntu Software Center, you'll find a bunch of proprietary software, some of which you have to pay money for. Another example is Steam, which allows users to sell games for ...

These are links to packages to Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) which reached its End of Life. So you can remove these lines from your /etc/apt/sources.lst file. If you are still using Ubuntu 13.10, it is better to switch to more recent version such as 14.04 LTS.

The repos are not directly owned/manged by Ubuntu but other third-parties and hence it is not Ubuntu who is responsible for updating these servers. You can set the system to fetch packages from other working servers and this is usually not at all a problem and will not affect your time-zones etc (which you can set yourself independent of what repo you use to ...

Use apt-mark. For example if you want to mark qtcreator as manually installed : sudo apt-mark manual qtcreator You can check which packages are (marked as) automatically installed : apt-mark showauto and which packages are (marked as) marked as manually installed: apt-mark showmanual Check man apt-mark to get more idea.

Thanks for the responses - as somebody very new to Ubuntu it is great to get responses like these. I should have said I did the obvious things - like closing Software Centre and everything else and reboot. The suspended install was still there.

It often works to close the Ubuntu Software Center and any open terminal window, and then reopen the Ubuntu Software Center. The package installation will continue to install the list of queued packages from the same place where it left off. If that doesn't work, a stronger way to fix the problem is to close all open windows, logout, log back in, open the ...

Ubuntu software center downloads the packages to /var/cache/apt/archives. As far as I know, if you cancelled the downloads they will be removed automatically but I can not confirm this. If it does not, you can always remove them using the rm -r command.

After asking this, I noticed that even for these kinds of packages, user reviews show up in Software Center. At least if there were ransomeware or something very obviously malicious in a package, users could report it as a negative review.

Your problem is you are missing libc-bin but can't install it. To install it: Boot from an ubuntu installation media and open a terminal Mount your ubuntu root partition: sudo mount /dev/sdX /mnt Chroot into your system: sudo chroot /mnt /bin/bash Install libc-bin: sudo apt-get install libc-bin Reboot your system and it should work fine

I'm pretty sure this is a duplicate, but here's the answer. You need to install that library that Steam needs. Do so by running sudo apt-get install libc6*. This should fix the Steam problem and will hopefully solve the other one as well.

The problem is that software-center starts with the shebang line #!/usr/bin/python which apparently points to a non-existent file on your system. I'm assuming absolute paths are common for Ubuntu default programs, rather than the more commonly used by developers #!/usr/bin/env python which would default to the first entry on your path (potentially ...
