I am uncertain on the cause for the error, but if you select advanced options during your initial load you should be able to select a previous image to load. I encountered the same issue and was able to load without an error with the last kernel image. I posted this as a possible suggestion: http://stephenjkennedy.me/?p=68 Hope it helps.

Sounds a bit like a proxy problem. I once had a problem with maven that the proxy replaced a jar by a html page containing a virus warning. The html got saved as .jar but because it was broken nothing worked anymore. Anyway: it's safe to delete everything from the directory /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/. Did you try another mirror?

It's good that you can still get into the console, as you'll likely be able to fix your problem from there. I'd first look in the logs of your X server and examine what is going on. You can do this with: cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log This will likely give you some message with an (EE) marker, which would tell you were the problem lies. It could be that the ...

You can add Public Keys to your apt keychain using apt-key. It is up to you to determine whether or not to trust the keys and import them. Here is how you would do it: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 886DDD89 7F0CEB10 C300EE8C Where keys are separated by spaces. You may use full keys, or the last eight characters, as show above. ...

These are three types of methods given to the user. Command line: manual Synaptic and the Ubuntu Software Center: GUI (graphical user interface) Auto-updater: automatic

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.

I was having problems getting the correct symlink to point at the nVidia driver and I found another way that works for me. It is outlined here.

Any Ubuntu version earlier than 12.04 has reached End of Life, so you can't revert back to it. You have no reasonable alternative except for backing up your personal files and reinstalling a currently suported operating system.

The autoremoval of kernels in Ubuntu are controlled by the /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal file. If the package is not marked for hold, than it should keep the last two versions and the newer ones. This means that you have to run the lastest version to can remove the older ones. After you rebooted the latest kernel, issue the command: sudo apt-get ...

I have almost exactly the same problem as @Blaze Tama and the answer proposed by @Bruce and @edward torvalds did not fix it.

Firefox 38 is the latest version. I'm pretty sure, if it's a ribbon at the top, or a box in the site, that is an ad. Ignore it.

It may or may not. Updates oftentimes introduce greater functionality to the older version of the program, thus causing the program to consume greater memory and/or cpu. Other times, updates may fix bugs that would otherwise uselessly consume memory and/or cpu. On the other hand, updates may also introduce new bugs that also uselessly consume cpu and memory. ...

It is not a good idea to install old versions. And Ubuntu 12.04 is slower than 14.04 on old hardware in many cases. But for your laptop I would suggest to install Lubuntu 14.04. It does not have enough RAM to work with Unity well.

You did not install kernel, only headers. If you want to upgrade kernel to 3.16 on Ubuntu 14.04 the correct way is this: sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-utopic The meta package will pull both headers and image. This way kernels will be upgraded through routine process.

This could be because both 10.10 (or 11.04 - not sure which it actually is via your question having both tags) are EOL (End Of Life).

It depends on what packages you are installing, and how much your computer can take. Unless the software packages are using a lot of memory, or your hard drive isalmost completely full, updating software packages shouldn't slow your computer down.

Try putting the machine in recovery mode (basically yank power twice), then pick advanced options, recovery mode, and try the dpkg option. Worth a try.

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.

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 ...

Everything is good, you can ignore the problem, that's a bug. Your command has caused no harm.
