You can comment out the entry in: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list with sed: sed -i '3 s/^/#/' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list This places a hashtag in front of the third line of the google-chrome.list file, like this: # deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

"Is safe to update kernel from PPA mainline?" The Mainline builds wiki clearly states that "These kernels are not supported and are not appropriate for production use." It also states than "The mainline kernels builds are produced for debugging purposes and therefore come with no support. Use them at your own risk." Mainline builds also don't include the ...

This question is too broad if you want to get information of all packages. Regarding linux kernel, you can look into the kernel git and see all commits. Regarding other packages, in most cases there is a launchpad bug link in changelog. You can follow that link and see the history of that bug. Regarding packages provided by 3rd parties, like Google ...

You can use tool called apticron to notify you when new updates are available. It sends you e-mail about pending upgrades, also giving you a choice to only send you e-mail about updates not previously notified. To setup apticron edit /etc/apticron/apticron.conf and change line containing e-mail address: EMAIL="admin@example.com" Enter the e-mail ...

This should work in theory, but I have two ideas regarding that: Copy the downloaded debs to /var/cache/apt/archives/ instead of installing them with dpkg -i. Thats where apt checks for packages and downloads them to. And probably even better: Check out apt-zip: APT-ZIP is a package to update a non-networked computer using apt and a (removable) media ...

Short answer is No. What you are saying is an Ubuntu running without internet which in itself is pretty bad because you don't get OTA Updates for your version and your bugs will not get removed and neither will repository support be available. This is not recommended for Ubuntu as it will have you running on a flavor that is not supported by the ...

.srt files are .txt files with an .srt extension, so you can open an .srt file in Gedit Text Editor and and easily delete a text string like <i> or </i> using Search -> Replace (which opens a new Replace window) -> Replace All. You can also replace text strings in the Gnome Subtitiles application, however Search -> Replace in Gnome Subtitles ...

Realistically while you could update individual packages, Ubuntu is quite dependent on a network to update... although it's might be possible to build a local repo when you have connectivity, and carry to the other machine (on CD?)... perhaps look at this answer:- How to make my own local repository?

I experienced the same problem, there is also an expired bug report for it (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-release-upgrader/+bug/1452968). I think it has been invoked by not first updating + upgrading + dist-upgrading to the latest version of 14.04 (.3 at the time of writing). Besides resetting the /etc/apt/sources.list file to trusty, as ...

A couple of months ago, I tried installing Ubuntu 14.04 on my desktop machine. It ran really well until I installed a ton of recommended updates. Then, boot time was longer, and the system would hang all the time. The software center was almost unusable as well. As for a solution, I would recommend using Linux Mint (which I installed instead of Ubuntu); ...

If your country's server is working fine at the moment then you should switch to that for it is effectively a mirror server to download your software packages from.

Are you familiar with the Ubuntu desktop OS (or any desktop Linux distribution)? Ubuntu touch uses the same approach. Canonical has a repository where they publish updates to the OS image (drivers are included in the image). The phone checks the repository and says that an update is available. User chooses when to download it and when to install it. ...

You can re-install plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text by running the following in a terminal: sudo apt-get remove plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text sudo apt-get install plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade Hopefully, that should fix the issue.

The correct command for updating your system's local list of packages is: sudo apt-get update And to properly upgrade all packages on the system that need it (The difference between the different APT upgrade commands): sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (And not ...updates.)

I'd strongly disagree that Gentoo is the fix for this. Gentoo might download a source patch but you'd still need to keep the full source, all the build dependencies and then recompile the whole thing. Wholly more expensive than just downloading a binary archive of the whole thing (in most cases). Anyway, what you're asking for has been mooted before as ...

I'd recommend sticking with 14.04 LTS. The LTS stands for Long Term Support, which means that issues with software and security vulnerabilities will be fixed and maintained for 5 years, so until April 2019. The next LTS release will be in April 2016, otherwise the standard support period is 9 months. So if you chose 15.04, you'd ideally want to move to ...

Ubuntu 14.04 is an LTS -- Long Term Support -- release. As such, it will be serviced at least until the next LTS verion is released (likely 16.04, based on past history). Given support expires much more quickly (one year from release, as I recall) for non-LTS versions, if you don't want to upgrade every few months, you may want to stick with 14.04 for the ...

So does the package management. lt is not intended that individual patches are downloaded. That would mean that the software must be recompiled on your system. For this Ubuntu is the wrong distribution. You should try in this case Gentoo.

I came across the the exact same problem today and it is actually very trivial. Cause there are both python2.7 and python3.4 resided in my system, for some packages I had to install both versions for python2.7 and python3.4.

Create a personal sudoers file: sudo -E visudo -f /etc/sudoers.d/panda -- I'm going to assume "panda" is your username. The contents are: panda ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/apt-get, /usr/bin/apt Then, you will be able to do sudo apt-get install whatever without needing to enter a password.

I am afraid it might not be your computer, but your ISP. They are probably throttling your connection when it notices that you are downloading a file. I have heard some ISP's do that to prevent piracy and downloading torrents (and to reduce their bandwidth cost), but this forum isn't about this so I recommend talking with your ISP and explaining to them that ...

Ubuntu 13.04 isn't an LTS version which means that it's only supported for a short period of time which was especially short for Ubuntu 13.04. The support ran out a long time ago as you can see in this graphic: If you want to use a system that long, please use an LTS version like 14.04. You'll be provided with updates for 5 years and will be able to ...

I am not sure if that directly is the problem, but Ubuntu 13.10 is not supported anymore. You should REALLY update your system(, not just some packages, that are probably not maintained anymore anyways).

You can use the HTML5 version of Youtube instead of the flash version - to enable it go to https://www.youtube.com/html5 and enable it: You need the appropriate video codecs to do this, you should have them if ubuntu-restricted-extras package is installed (see RestrictedFormats - these codecs may also be installed with Totem, VLC or other video players. ...

What you want can't be done. What you should be doing instead is installing your custom apps in a chroot stored in your userdata partition, and leave the root partition alone. Doing otherwise compromises in fact you receiving official updates on your phone.

Instead of deleting the repository, as has been posted in the previous answer, you just need to use the key, --fix-missing in your command to avoid problems happening and finding alternatives of the repository you are connecting to as follows: sudo apt-get update --fix-missing Which will do the trick.

This depends on whether whoever made the package honoured Ubuntu/Debian's versioning of their packages. For example, consider the Vim package: $ apt-cache policy vim vim: Installed: 2:7.4.811-1~ppa1~t Candidate: 2:7.4.811-1~ppa1~t Version table: *** 2:7.4.811-1~ppa1~t 0 500 http://ppa.launchpad.net/pi-rho/dev/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 ...
