As an alternative, you might try removing the package and adding it afterwards. This worked for me on the Citrix client. Be careful about what you're removing (of course). sudo apt-get remove icaclient:i386

Find out, what packages built for armhf you have installed: dpkg -l | grep armhf Uninstall these packages, if there are any. They cannot be upgraded automatically.

It seems like I had accidentally added an incorrect foreign architecture to my computer when using the "dpkg --add-architecture" command at a previous date. Below is the incorrect command I had entered: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i3836 That is why binary-i3836 was a reoccurring issue. I used the command below to fix the issue: sudo dpkg ...

You need to edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set prompt to never. As this is just a text file, it should be trivial if you have other configuration management going on. EDIT: That worked on one of my boxes, but not the other. sudo apt-get remove update-manager-core simply removed the update check functionality. Again, this should be ...

To do a release update on ubuntu you need to run sudo do-release-upgrade as apt-get update just refreshes the sources for packages and apt-get upgrade just updates all packages to the latest version, but doesn't update to the latest ubuntu release.

I am pretty sure @user220420 was referring to /etc/fstab instead of /etc/mtab. I had lots of free GB in my root, however, Firefox wouldn't let me download anything from the internet. A small window would pop-up before finishing any download, telling /tmp had not enough space left. Within fstab, there's this line where you can increase tmp's folder size. It ...

you probably changed the location where APT is taking the sources from. you can change your sources.list located here : /etc/apt/sources.list an easier way is probably to change the software sources directly in UI of Software Center. open software center click Edit on top and select software sources select server where to take sources from

I highly recommend that you use the source server marked as "Main Server". The connection speed to the local server would vary from country to country. Another possible solution is to choose the "Other" option, then select "Select Best Server". This will make Ubuntu test the connection speed of all the servers and choose the best one. Lastly, you can ...

It looks like your Ubuntu installation has the Ubuntu 14.04 CD/DVD listed as one of its sources, which if you're using 12.04 is strange, to say the least. Is it possible these were left behind after a failed attempt to upgrade or something? You'll need to find the specific lines in either /etc/apt/sources.list or the files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ that ...

So after cleaning, we can see you have two different kernels left: generic and lowlatency. The uname command shows that you are using the lowlatency. If you are not using the generic kernel, you could delete its related files by running : sudo find /boot -name "*generic*" -delete This should halves the space used in /boot. You could/should also grow ...

I had the same problem -- there's a little triangle next to the Software Updater in the launcher in Ubuntu 14.04, but I don't see its window even after I clicked on that icon. This is apparently a bug. One work-around: I fixed it by opening up a terminal window and typing sudo apt-get update and hitting enter. After apt-get finishes, then hitting the ...
