This happened to me in a recent install, too, but I had installed the Google repository - I see that you have installed it, as well, in your first line... Navigated to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ Edited google.list by invoking sudo nano google.list Commented out the source with a # Saved and ran sudo apt-get update Error solved!

If you need to stick to a specific kernel package version, you'll need to hold all of these: linux-generic linux-image-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-X.Y.Z-W-generic linux-image-extra-X.Y.Z-W-generic linux-headers-X.Y.Z-W-generic for suitable X, Y, Z and W.

You need to add sudo to the command to run it as an administrator for update-manager to work properly. So you would run sudo update-manager -d. Rule of thumb: If a command modifies your system, it needs sudo.

If the upgrade is something you don't want to do because you are afraid of maybe breaking something, the LTS version would be the better option due to its longer support. But as the others wrote, as long as you are careful and don't run services (or even better ...

You would be safe from viruses and malware, since anti-virus software is 3rd party and you would still be able to update them since the companies that made the software will keep providing you with new virus definitions. But....There are a lot of Linux black-hats out there who would just love to hack into your computer. And because Canonical will no longer ...

You can also use Grub Customizer to select the default boot kernel (without having to manually press SHIFT and load GRUB list). http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/04/install-grub-customizer-ubuntu-1404/ General settings --> Default boot .

IF you are on 3.13 right now, you will stay on that kernel (possible with minor updates) the only reason you would get a newer kernel, is if you downloaded 14.04.4 or something else. You CAN upgrade it though, see here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack .. But if you don't do anything, you will be fine :)

I had the same kind of problem. I go in /etc/sources.list then I open the files concerned by the error. I saw that a line was repeated and I just removed one of the duplicated lines. Now I don't have the error anymore.
