You can use the --print-uris option of apt-get $ sudo apt-get --print-uris update||grep Packages.bz2|awk '{print $2}'|sed -e 's/_ubuntu_dists_vivid\(-\|_\)\?/ /' -e 's/_binary-.*_Packages//'|sort -u This will not update the package list

This is really just a fine tuning of your approach: cat /etc/apt/sources.list | grep deb | cut -d' ' -f2 The cut -d' ' -f2 part cuts out the second column from the line containing the word deb.

If you look at the top of the backtrace you will notice that UnityTweakTool is a Python 3 library. However your PYTHONPATH contains a lot of directories referring to your Python 2 installation. The problematic one is /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages, which causes the incompatible Python 2 version of the apt package to be picked up. Try unsetting your ...

apt command line utilities don't provide the exact same level of comfort as their gui equivalent (namely software updater). While a apt-get dist-upgrade will take care of the bulk of the upgrade, that is to say download and installation of newer packages, it will not detect the existence of a new release of ubuntu (or debian), which the ubuntu gui utility ...

sudo apt-get update is run automatically in the back ground regularly. Auto-updater is the same as sudo apt-get upgrade. In fact it (and Synaptic) runs the apt-get command it self, it's just a pretty gui for users to use. If you ask it to show you the details you'll notice they are just a slightly massaged version of the console output of apt-get.

The autoremoval of kernels in Ubuntu are controlled by the /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal file.

I have almost exactly the same problem as @Blaze Tama and the answer proposed by @Bruce and @edward torvalds did not fix it. I do not get any error message but when I click on the icons of Software updater and Software & Updates, nothing happens. And Software updater does not prompt me for updates any more. I am not completely sure that it is the same ...

In my experience, most updates don't ask for a password. The system is able to update the necessary files without extra permissions. When it does ask for your password, it's to send to sudo, which lets you run a command with root permissions. There are some files that can't be modified except with root permissions, such as the kernel. When one of these has ...

Update Manager does not suggest daily updates by default. Only security updates pop up immediately. Other updates are suggested once a week. It is quite reasonable. But you can change these settings. But anyway you don't have to install updates every time they pop up.

Make sure your my.cnf doesn't have any options that have been deprecated. I had a similar problem because I had default-character-set listed under [mysqld], but in the newer version of mysql this had been renamed to character_set_server. However, mysql very unhelpfully let me know of this by simply hanging when trying to start the service. And the package ...

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.

Directly upgrade to Ubuntu 15.04 from 14.04 not possibly, but this not mean that you can't do this. No usb sticks, etc needed. I do that update via ssh from remote PC :) Before upgrade you need install upgrade helpers: sudo apt-get install update-manager update-manager-core After, go to /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades file and change Prompt=lts to ...

As out of my comments the solution that worked for you is to disable ppas that you have added before an upgrade to newer version. As stated if you're trying to upgrade to 14.04 some of the packages and ppas can be no longer available in 14.04 they have been stopped in developing or replaced with others that 14.04 requires. The best is to disable all those ...

It is best to download the ISO from Ubuntu website and create a live USB with it using UNetbootin. Then while booting from USB you will be given an option to upgrade. This will preserve your data. Edit: As pointed out below, you will have to first update to 14.10 to upgrade to 15.04, but you can follow the same strategy.
