The apt system and PyPI uses two different mechanisms. In Ubuntu's repositories many modules of python are available as packages, but they are not much in numbers as compared to PyPI (The Python Package Index). To remain consistent about upgrading a package you need to consider the method you have used initially used to install it. So if you have installed ...

There are packages which aren't updated. Try running the following from terminal: sudo -s apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade reboot

For such an update you will need to update your Ubuntu completely as every package linking to libc will need to be recompiled. And these are a lot.

Replace trusty with vivid in the files /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* Check the result with: sudo find /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ -type f -name "*.list" | sed 's/trusty/vivid/' /etc/apt/sources.list sudo sed 's/trusty/vivid/' /etc/apt/sources.list If it's OK, start sed with inline editing -i sudo find /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ -type f ...

if that is not working try this sudo sh -c 'echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf' described in Unstable wireless with Intel 7260 + iwlwifi after upgrade to 15.04 or here. Good Luck ~Kaitsh

why should I install version 14? I do not need it but maybe I am overseeing something. If there is no feature or software in the newer version that you need, then the only reason in favour of upgrading will be that it will be supported for longer, so instead of losing support in April 2017, you'll lose support in April 2019. I am mostly using ...

Just these lines solved it for me: dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ sudo reboot I also tried booting into different kernels, and I also changed from the nVidia driver to the nouveau driver using unity-control-center > Sources > Proprietary Drivers

I think I found the problem, as Kodi is now installing correctly: First I found all the packages that were still hanging around from saucy by running dpkg --list | grep saucy One by one I removed them all using apt-get remove <packagename>. (I suspect these were old packages that were installed via some weird ppa when I installed gnome.) After ...

Thank you for the tips. Basically I wanted to update/upgrade from 14.04 LTS to 15.04. I tried running sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, but that still fails with the same error as I posted. I was thinking it would be okay to upgrade to Vivid, but that seems not to be a good thing. Essentially I am running Ubuntu on one of my VM's, and just use it to develop stuff ...

Please note that you are trying to upgrade from 14.04 -which is indeed an LTS version- to 14.10, which is not LTS. Since 14.04 is still supported, most of your software is up to date to much the same way as if you went to 14.10. So there is no real need to upgrade. Please note, 14.04 will be supported until April 2019, and 14.10 only up to July this year, ...

I believe you need to remove all your custom added ppa's for any update to run. In System Settings go to Software & Updates and move to the Other Software tab. I believe all your custom ppa's must be unchecked from this list for the update to run, then you can recheck them (and test them individually) after the update has occurred.

Try running this sudo apt-get install -f sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update This should clean up any broken packages. Then you should try this again sudo apt-get install kodi kodi-bin Hope this helps

First take care of the GPG error. Then edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and disable all lines that don't contain a reference to 'ubuntu.com', these are for example all the lines that contain a reference to Launchpad PPA's. Then try to upgrade again. If this works reenable the lines you've diabled and do a regular update.

They just mean that the special new tags have not yet been added to the boot scripts. Try removing insserv and try again.

3.13 is the kernel version for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and will be supported until April 2019. Ubuntu 14.04.2 comes with 3.16 which only has an 18 month support from Feb 2015. So, you shouldn't have any problems staying with kernel 3.13.

Have you tried this: sudo apt-get install --reinstall dkms and then run vboxdrv, and it might work fine this way.

I would verify that /etc/apt/sources.list is set for utopic. Then I would apt-get remove every package that has unmet dependencies when apt-get dist-upgrade launched. (so, remove libcogl15) System should not be restarted when some essential packages like linux-image, core-utils, etc are not installed (otherwise there will be some fun with booting from USB ...

I probably have the same issue. dpkg --audit Die folgenden Pakete sind wegen Problemen während der Installation nur halb installiert.

That's because you're using LTS version and you're trying to upgrade to a non-LTS version of Ubuntu. Check: cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades | grep -i prompt it should print like: # Default prompting behavior, valid options: Prompt=lts That means it prompted to upgrade to LTS versions but not the Development ones. If you want to upgrade to ...

This is caused by a setting that's automatically set if you install an LTS release fresh, instead of upgrading to it. To change this, simply open up the Unity dash (Ubuntu logo in the upper-left-hand corner), and search for Software. That should bring up a list of applications like this (different icons of course, I'm using the Numix Circle icon theme. The ...

14.04 is a Long term support (LTS). By default it will just upgrade to the next LTS release (which will be 16.04). To upgrade to a non-LTS release, you have to open the software update properties. On the tab with the notification settings there is a drop down selection at the bottom. Set it to any release, then it should find 14.10. Also since you are using ...

Like most software in Ubuntu, the major version shipped (eg 3.13, 3.16, 3.19) is maintained for as long as that version of Ubuntu works. Security fixes are applied and pushed out through Apt. Maintaining software rather than just upgrading everything is a feature of Ubuntu. That said, if you really need a later version, there are options: LTS releases ...

It is possible that GRUB is not installed or corrupted. Try installing grub again if you can login through coomand line (CTRL + ALT + F1).

If you possess a full Windows 7 CD, there is no problem: just install the 64-bit version on top of the 32-bit one. (which is off-topic here) Then just run boot-repair to get grub back up-and running. (That being said, backup before you do something dangerous like changing Windows versions is always a good idea: you've just been promoted to user type 4. If ...

Have you tried the solution in http://askubuntu.com/a/613622/132783 ? That is: wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/r2pb41rhx65t9zi/BCM20702A0-0a5c-216f.hcd sudo cp BCM20702A0-0a5c-216f.hcd /lib/firmware/brcm/ sudo modprobe -r btusb sudo modprobe btusb

The main reason: stability. Upgrading to a more recent release is a critical step when considering system stability and functionality, as it basically changes the whole package base. Imagine you are responsible for the desktops computers of a smaller office building and they use Ubuntu. Now, imagine the update manager pops up, asking you to upgrade to a ...

I managed to resolve this issue myself. Firstly, the upgrade that was supposed to be to 15.04 actually only took me to 10.1. Presumably something baulked half way through. I realised I could actually log in to command line with ctrl+alt+f1 – all the programs seemed to run fine, just not unity / compiz. This little gem fixed the issue: rm -rf .compiz-1 ...

The problem was that gtk (or some element of gtk) had to be reinstalled. Something either went out of date or became corrupted with the upgrade.

Your problem could be due to various reasons, including but not limited to: something running in the background which uses your CPU or RAM. For this, open a terminal and call top or launch system monitor. Then open gedit an monitor your CPU and memory consumption. If you see a jump try to find what is causing it. You may need to update your motherboard ...

It looks like you use Ubuntu 14.04 with kernel 3.16. But you have still 3.13 kernel meta packages that download and install these kernels. Some DKMS modules do not build with those kernels. To be more precise they build but do not install correctly. I suggest removing 3.13 meta packages by sudo apt-get remove linux-generic linux-headers-generic ...

This is because of Jayatana, which is added to Ubuntu 15.04 inorder to enable global menu for Java swing applications. You can safely remove this message by entering the following command in terminal. This command will remove the configuration of Jayatana. sudo rm /usr/share/upstart/sessions/jayatana.conf However, removing this option will disable the ...

The problem only arose because I had a custom Compiz profile in the old system and after the upgrade it got silently deleted so Unity could not find it and just crashed with no indication as of the source of the failure. Importing my settings to a profile under the old name using ccsm solved the issue. And this is year 2015.

14.04 is the next LTS release after 12.04. It's what you want on a server. They last for five years after release (rather than nine months). The only upgrade path that supports skipping versions is the LTS→LTS one. You cannot jump from 12.04 to 13.x. Neither would you want to; both 13.x releases have been dead for some time. The latest LTS is currently ...

First, be sure you've done all the 14.04 updates (I had issues just doing this, but after a bunch of reboots and upgrade attempts, you'll eventually get it done). Second, go into Update Manager and tell Ubuntu to show you all available version updates, the default with the pre-installed 14.04 is to show you nothing, not even LTSes. Then you have to ...

What's the misunderstandable thing in "Erase disk"? If it said "Erase partition", I'd share your doubt, but it clearly says it will erase the entire main hard disk. "Erase Ubuntu and reinstall" may or may not wipe Mac OS X, depending on whether it is detected or not. The OS-Prober utility can not always be trusted, less so the interpretation of its output ...

Unfortunately this bug has not yet been resolved. As you can see, this is due to an issue with using Adwaita, BUT: I found that switching to the Vertex theme was not only an acceptable solution, but I think I prefer it to other options right now: Instructions are here: Github Installation Section, but I simply used the xUbuntu packages here for Ubuntu ...

My problem was finally solved after I applied the latest updates from Ubuntu a couple of days ago. I am unable to get hold of any version number to say which update I am running - if anyone has suggestions on how to get that, I'll be glad to post that information also. Before applying the updates, I had tried out one more option: adding nomodeset to the ...

That is the freshclam daemon running that is causing that error message. If you check the log, tail -10 /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log you will probably see updates for the freshclam as early as today. As long as you're seeing updates, everything should be fine. If you want to change the intervals to the freshclam daemon, type in the following from a ...
