When an old release is not supported anymore, package sources are moved from archive.ubuntu.com to old-releases.ubuntu.com. To be able to download any package from the official repositories, you must edit /etc/apt/sources.list so that it reflects this change, i.e. replacing any occurence of archive.ubuntu.com with old-releases.ubuntu.com, like so: deb ...

You need to run apt-get as root or sudo. Example: sudo apt-get update *password* Also run any other apt-get commands as root or sudo. Example: sudo apt-get upgrade If you are quick enough after the first command, you do not need to give your password again.

Although I personally haven't experienced this and I'm curious as to why this unfortunate turn of events has found its way to your desktop, I just opened the Software Center with no issues. I'll try my best to help. If you want to install a piece of software, you can simply install it manually via the terminal: sudo apt-get install [package-name] After ...

At first sight, it looks like a dependency problem. To fix it, open the Terminal and type the following commands: $ sudo apt-get clean $ sudo apt-get -f install The first one will remove any cached packages, the second one will fix all missing dependencies between packages currently installed in your system.

The sources.list files are in /etc/apt/sources.list.d in newer version of Ubuntu. So you need to make a symbolic link from official-package-repositories.list to the old place to solve this problem: sudo ln -s /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list /etc/apt/sources.list

I usually like to start with Google. When I install something new and want to find out how to interact with it I'll search for something like "Things to do after installing Ubuntu", or "Top Ubuntu Apps", or "Ubuntu for beginners". After a while I start to get the hang of new things and eventually become more and more proficient. Ubuntu is a great OS for ...

If I were to make a guess, the "Optional Add-ons" are what would be called Recommends or Suggests dependencies. They are listed by the package maintainer of whichever package you're trying to install, but may or may not be developed by them or be approved by/known to the upstream developers. And indeed it is so: $ apt-cache depends rkhunter | grep -Ei ...

Have you tried to run sudo deepin-software-center? Sometimes applications have odd ways to tell you that it needs root permissions to run right.

I upgraded to 14.10 and that fixed it. Remember kids: it's always a good idea to partition your HDD and keep your stuff off the root partition. That way, when you reinstall, you just re-mount your partition, and everything was like it was. (except for apps, users, etc..) But at least I still have my data!

Looks like something has splurged binary nonsense into something that should be a text file. There isn't a simple way to step around this, you need to fix the file. Check the file first. If it's just the first line that's like this, delete the line, save and try again: sudoedit /etc/apt/sources.list Failing that, I would look at deleting (sudo rm ...

Your /etc/apt/sources.list file is corrupt. Try mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bak and restore an uncorrupted version from your backup or copy an unmodified one from installation media.

Ubuntu Oneric (11.10) has been end of life for a very very long time, and the repositories no longer exist for it on http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ 12.04 is the earliest version with decent support life left. 10.04 still has a couple of months of support for the server version, but i'd recommend 12.04 or 14.04 if you can use either of those.

You appear to be using an outdated End Of Life (EOL) version of Ubuntu, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal. Upgrade to a newer version. Latest Long Term Support release is 14.04. Also, please consider using pastebin next time rather than One Drive. Not sure about on a PC, but annoying on mobile. Edit: If this was a fresh install, rather than update process ...

Either your apt-get can't access Internet or your package mirror is down. In second case, edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file and replace your country code in.archieve.. to us.archieve. Don't forget to change back later.
