The communication on this has been terrible. We've happily waited 3 months since the LTS release and would have waited longer, but we need to know when to schedule in time. I administer a large number of systems and had planned this week to do them, I don't want to run the development version of the update with -d. Happy to wait, but can't believe a week in ...

It's not that AMD isn't supported in 16.04, it's just that there are no proprietary drivers for AMD in 16.04. This basically means almost all games are out of the question, but most other things, including videos, should be fine. If 15.10 is working for you, you have a difficult decision. 15.10 has reached its end-of-life date today, meaning we at Ask ...

16.04.1 is a point release of 16.04, so you don't need to use the do-release-upgrade command, instead: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Will get you there. In the GUI, just installing all required updates will do the same job. To check that you're on 16.04.1 use: lsb_release -a

Don't mix and match nginx.org repos and the Ubuntu PPAs for NGINX. You are trying to use two separate PPAs - 1.11.3 from upstream Mainline repos, and 1.10.0 from my NGINX Stable PPA. This is something I touched upon in my blog post here, when an influx of bugs prompted the notice. (Content copied into below) Pick one repo, and drop the other in your /etc/...

I had this issue too. Following this answer: You can see what version you have by running: lsb_release -a And you can upgrade by running (apt instead of apt-get): sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade Let me know how it works? And, yes, you would see 16.04.1 instead of 16.04. Here is a screenshot of my output:

https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/sources.list/#Ubuntu-14-04 shows the default sources.list, maybe you can backup yours and give it a try with the default settings. You could also use https://repogen.simplylinux.ch/ which lets you generate your sources.list plus add some repositories you whish to add. Also medibuntu is not supported any longer, as you may have ...

There is no harm in re-setting the boot degraded flag after update, just to be sure, but it is unlikely to be deleted. echo 'BOOT_DEGRADED=true' > /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/mdadm && update-initramfs -k all -u The answer posted by "undefine" is incorrect (except in that he partially retracted it), and the one posted by "Stefan" correct, at ...

Did you turn off all the extra ppas you might have added before the upgrade? Did you remove the hold on the packages which are "held"? For example: sudo apt-mark unhold package_name see How to prevent updating of a specific package? for other package managers. Yes assuming dbus is the first package to unhold.

Try this please as a last possible solution. Open a terminal and type these commands: sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update If this doesn't work either, then the hard disk problem is the most probable cause for this message unfortunately.

This is more of a guess than an actual answer. If you update the package-lists do you get any warning or errors? sudo apt-get update -- go through and check for warnings And are the sources good? cat /etc/apt/sources.list -- check if something important is out-commented.

If for some reason do-release-upgrade doesn't work for you, go ahead and download the 16.04.1 .iso, create the Live CD and start your system with it. One of the installation options will be to upgrade your current system the same way do-release-upgrade would upgrade it.

Run cat /etc/lsb-release and you will see that you already have 16.04.1. If not, run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade. In System Settings GUI you see the major release number.

Don't upgrade using that method. Instead boot your normal system and run: sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get -f install reboot sudo do-release-upgrade You may need to run on a server sudo apt-get install update-manager-core.

This is an issue that has appeared before: 4 years ago when upgrading from 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) to 14.04.1 LTS (Trusty Tahr): Why is "No new release found" when upgrading from a LTS to the next?

I don't know where it came from, but I had a python binary in /usr/local/bin that was overriding my default one. It was build with an older gcc and that was causing the problem.

It looks like you are trying to use a CD as a repository. You can't do that in this way, because the CD doesn't have the necessary structure. If you want to make a CD accessible to APT, you have to use apt-cdrom. You can find further information on apt-cdroms man page man apt-cdrom And, no offence meant, but the error messages you quoted in your question ...

it ended up being a permission issue. so a sudo chmod 0777 -R /var/lib/plexmediaserver sudo chown plex:plex -R /var/lib/plexmediaserver sudo service plexmediaserver restart solved the issue It appears as well that the sudo apt-get remove --purge plexmediaserver does not clean all things.

Yes, I have done this when I moved from Mythbuntu 14.04 to Mythbuntu 16.04.

As mentioned in the comments, you can install any specific release. You can find the one you are looking for here website. Just install as usual (create usb/cd, boot, etc). yet, if you run upgrade/update, you will end up with the final point release anyway. It is for this same reason that in the official website you will only see the final releases. Any ...

This error indicates that more than one mandb process was running at the same time and thus part of the cache update has failed.

I just ran into the same problem. Looks like libbfd got updated but perf is still trying to link against the old version.

This is more of a redirect, but when I posted my broken package issue on launchpad (similarly trying to upgrade from 15.10 to 16.04), I got excellent support. In my case my issue was that I had used a foreign source (a ppa) to install some more recent graphics packages, specifically libgl1-mesa-dri, libegl1-mesa, and libgbm1. I had to downgrade those ...

Because the first point release of Ubuntu 16.04 is not out yet, attempting to upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS without using the -d option will fail. The -d option is needed to specify that you want to "upgrade to the latest devel release". In short, you need to specify the -d option: sudo do-release-upgrade -d

From the comments, it looks like you were trying to use pip3 inside a virtualenv that is set up for Python 2.

In any case, if you want to create a virtualenv for Python 2, run: virtualenv venv # create ...

Use sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list. It will open the file in an editor in the terminal window. It works like a GUI editor, except that the mouse doesn't work and you use the arrow keys to move around. With nano, commands are listed on the bottom, where ^ means Ctrl. So, to save or Write Out the file, you press Ctrl+O, and to exit, you press Ctrl+X.
