I struggled with this problem for a couple of hours trying to get this solved for an instance of ubuntu 12.04 running on a virtualbox. m13r and LiveWireBT's answers above fixed it. Perfect solution. I still had the problem after removing the directories and doing sudo apt-get update. Only the following step solved my problem: sudo sed -i ...

You should be able to accomplish this by simply keeping your system up-to-date with sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade No special upgrade techniques are necessary if you already using 12.04.

Thats the message of the day (motd). Check if the file /etc/motd is existing and has content. When typing: cat /etc/motd ...you should see the message like this: Welcome to Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.2.0-58-generic x86_64) * Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/ 115 packages can be updated. 115 updates are security updates.

The update did not fail. It just could not retrieve one oft the PPAs you added. This PPA has been ignored and you are good to go.

It happened to me as well in both Xubuntu 14.04 LTS and Lubuntu 14.04 LTS running on VMware player 3.1.4 build-385536. It seems a kernel issue that is not yet sorted out. I sorted out the problem by downgrading the kernel. Check kernel version (in my case it was 3.13.0-37-generic) uname-r 3.13.0-37-generic Remove it and update grub sudo ...

That is the latest version available for Ubuntu 14.04 from the official repositories. You might want try a PPA such as this one. Note that the Ubuntu team backports patches for security issues, and increments the packaging part of the version number (1ubuntu4.1 in 2.4.7-1ubuntu4.1), leaving the upstream version number unchanged (2.4.7), so instead of ...

The Software Update application is just a GUI frontend to the apt and dpkg backends in the command line, which actually maintain and manage the packages. The ultimate underlying commands being run are about equivalent to sudo apt-get update when you hit "Refresh" or "Check for Updates". The about-equivalent command being run when you have all the packages ...

Sometimes, all you need to do is just switch to the main server for updates. Updates, depending on your geographical area, sometimes don't come from the main servers for faster deliveries. For whatever reasons, the relay servers might not be responding as quick as possible to certain requests, so temporarily switching to Main Server for updates should fix ...

12.10/Quantal is EOL - Dead! If you want to revive it, anything can work. I have been runnig kernel 3.12 on ubuntu 10.04 Lucid, and it works great. My guess is that you can use any kernel, but the only way to find out is to try. If you are ready to compile yourself, then is kernel 3.4 still alive. It is the one closest to quantals original (3.5) and would ...

Another solution is, sometimes it couldn't find the packages from the selected server. You should change it to the best matched server. Go to Software & Updates Then on Download from click Other Select Best Server and it will auto update the sources. Now install it from Software Updater or do sudo apt-get upgrade

You can use 3.17-Utopic at your own risk. I am using the same on Ubuntu 14.04. NOTE: As per what I know, the kernels available in mainline are not completely tested. Once testing is done, it will be made available to you. Best of Luck...

You get daily updates for the numix-icon-theme package simply because the project maintainers have set up daily builds for this package in their main ppa. See https://code.launchpad.net/~numix/+recipe/numix-icon-theme-daily It's not suspicious, just a bit unusual as most of the time daily builds are meant for testing in a separate ppa. Here the target of ...

I used sudo dpkg --configure -a then a terminal option screen (similar to the pam-auth-update screen) opens and you can (un-) select with the Space key and move with the Tab key.

From the look of this error message it seems you either have no working internet connection, or the site was unavailable. You should verify you have a working internet connection and try again. EDIT: As pointed out by steeldriver in the comment below, 12.10 is no longer supported!

The ppa does not provide packages for trusty. Take a look at your url http://ppa.launchpad.net/upubuntu-com/multimedia/ubuntu/dists/ To hide/resolve the error, you should remove the ppa from Software Sources.

You can. You did. Those messages at the end are just warnings. You can ignore them (without harm or fault) or fix the problem they describe by cleaning out the duplicate lines in your /etc/apt/ sources files.

This happened to me as well on basically identical hardware/software (2012 Macbook pro retina, Parallels 10, Ubuntu 14.04).

It depends on the software you use. In general, packages in a given Ubuntu release only get updates to fix severe bugs, which severely impact the functionality of a program or render it insecure. However, new features are typically not included as updates. Hence, if a program you use had a new version which introduced many new features, including ...

It seems that your apt cache file is corrupted. Open terminal and run following commands. First remove the cache file. sudo rm /var/cache/apt/*.bin Now re-create it using sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade

My guess is there may be some disk corruption to the apt-get package! Can you try running sudo apt-get install aptitude and see what that does? If you can install aptitude, it works as an alternative to apt-get and you can also run sudo aptitude reinstall apt-get and see if it's able to repair apt-get! :)

The toolbar in evince is apparently buggy, according to bug reports, and it is not possible to hide it, ever, as it remembers per-file settings, which override/ignore the toolbar visibility setting adjusted via e.g. dconf-editor.

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.

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.
