I could guess that the TTY1 is showing that information but the rest of the TTY (2 to 6) do not). So my advice is to CTRL+ALT+2 or 3 and see if you get the login prompt there. If you do, then follow on with the rest of the steps.

Nvidia, Ati or Intel. I assume that drivers faild for install. Have you configured a framebuffer for grub? You can try an apt-get install -f which ...

That's probably due to the phased updates. New updates may introduce new bugs. So, to minimize the impact of those bugs, the updates are released gradually to more users. This only affects the Update Manager, not apt-get. If you run the Update Manager tomorrow, it will probably show some of those updates that apt-get is reporting now. In short, I think ...

I would check ~ZSW/.xsession-errors first, and then check /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log for any errors. If I had to guess, I would say it was a permissions issue, and that the lightdm user can't see the files it needs to be able to start properly.

I think it's better to install Ubuntu tweak and remove old kernels through it. It does it automatically for you. You have to go to Janitor tab and select old kernel. Then hit clean button and you are ready... :)

That's the main problem: No space left on device It's your /boot partition that has no more space left. Try to do this: Delete the unused kernel images manually. But, take care to not delete the used one or you will not be able to boot anymore. Type uname -r in a terminal. All that contains this version string must not be deleted. When you cleaned the ...

I have had the update manager fail on me on a few occasions as well (e.g. when running out of free disk space). In most (if not all) cases I was able to restart it and finish the upgrade without any problems. Note that I didn't reboot the machine in this half-upgraded state. I can imagine that that would break it. So, no guarantees, but simply exiting the ...

I was off the computer for a few days. One of the last things I did before shutting down the last time was to run the script "dpkg -r nautilus-dropbox_1.6.2_all," and got an error saying the superuser had to do this. When I re-booted, I got a pop-up saying to authenticate for super user, which I did. I ran that script again, and still got the same error. ...

Different tools exist for checking active processes. ps command This command allows to get a list of active processes, along with other information. Usually it is used with ax parameters (to see all processes) together with grep as a filter, for example: ps ax | grep -i apt In this case -i means case-insensitive match. This will show process ids, e.g.: ...

One of the easiest solutions is to boot a liveUSB/DVD, choose install Ubuntu, then "Something else" and choose the actual Ubuntu partition as the root (/) partition and select it for formatting. Backup your important files and your home folder first. Ubuntu 14.04 will replace 12.10. You will have to reinstall any extra software you had installed.

When I asked this question the version I had installed was 14.04.0 (Trusty). I waited a bit and I can know say that after upgrading this week to 14.04.1 (Trusty Tahr) I have not experienced the same issue again.

As Charles has said, you need to remove the "in." at the start of your source URL. Open a Terminal and enter this command: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list Then find the url thrown by APT in the error message and remove the "in." so that the url changes from http://in.old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/quantal-backports/multiverse/binary-i386/Packages to ...

Unless I'm mistaken, 12.04 No longer receives updates as it's status is End Of Life (EOL). You could upgrade to 14.04 (the next LTS) if you want to keep your machine up to date. This can be done with the command update-manager -d. Or if that fails to work, follow the instructions here: Can not upgrade from 12.04 using update manager

It may be that these are set to be very infrequent, and they aren't appearing because you update in unity before it gets a chance to.
