You can login via the command line from the login screen by hitting Ctrl+Alt+F1 You can get back to the GUI with Ctrl+Alt+F7 This might make it easier to troubleshoot the problem.

Please be aware that 15.10 is still in development. Development releases are unstable, and not suited for people who do not want to fix/report/triage bugs. If you want a stable Ubuntu version, stick to the official released versions. For added stability, choose a Ubuntu LTS release. That said, to upgrade to a development release open your terminal by ...

If you want to go the graphical route you can load up the System Settings window and select Software & Updates. From there go to the Other Software tab and disable the http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/ repo. Also note: Ubuntu Software Center has a tendency to error out due to the failed repo update. I thought it was something I had done as the ...

You have a corrupted line in /etc/apt/sources.list or one of the *.list files under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. Try this command to spot it: grep gpgv: /etc/apt/*.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list Remove the line and you'll be fine. Edit: Since you somehow lost the /usr/lib/apt/methods/gpgv file, a way to get back that file is by reinstalling apt: ...

I have the same issue on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Disabling the repos worked great using the sed command but you could also easily just edit the file itself using nano or your favourite editor sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list And just comment out everything you see with a # sign which essentially does the same thing as the sed command.

Update: Repo fixed, use the following commands to update your system: sudo sed -i -e "s/#deb/deb/" /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade Original Answer: If you are experiencing this issue right now (around 2015-07-24), it's because someone at Valve has improperly configured their repo. You can verify this ...

After making the snapshot, any files that are in the middle of being written will still be half written in the snapshot, and the new writes to go the original volume. This can cause corruption of the file, just like a crash or loss of power. If you are running applications that can't cope with a sudden power loss, then shut them down ( maybe boot into ...

It's a hardware problem, but likely a very simple one. Check your Fn key isn't stuck down, which on an Acer Aspire laptop would change the behavior of the letters UIOPJKLM, F1-F12, and the arrow keys. Other compact laptops (those with no separate numberpad) can have similar issues.

As you can see in the comment, Debian and Ubuntu are different Linux distributions. Ubuntu is based in Debian, but it not upgradeable to it. You can upgrade Ubuntu to a newest version of Ubuntu like 14.04 or 15.04. Debian in the other hand, is in the 8.1 version. Both are really good systems, but you can look at: Debian And here: Ubuntu For more ...

Copy-paste from server fault: AFAICT, there was no way to reattach to the upgrade process. However, it wasn't a disaster at all. I killed the hanging dpkg process, and then ran dpkg --configure -a. This walks you through reconfiguring all packages already installed on the system, tidying up any problems whilst it does so. After that, I used ...

Answering my own question: The problem didn't really have anything to do with libtool (although it was revealed when building packages that used libtool). I had updated gcc and g++ to 4.8, but cpp was still at 4.6.3. After installing cpp-4.8 the problem is fixed. Just for the record, the following should work fine for upgrading gcc to 4.8 on ubuntu 12.04: ...

If you would like to update manually you have to upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10 to 12.04 to 14.04, so it's easier to download a DVD image of the latest stable Ubuntu version and burn it and boot that...

To upgrade to 14.04, download it's .iso file, burn it onto a flash drive. You will get an option to upgrade during the installation process, similar to the one in the image.

From the (few) sources available (such as this one at Engadget: http://www.engadget.com/products/acer/aspire/one/zg5/specs/), it would seem that the RAM controller chip in your netbook is capable of using only 2 RAM slots, each with up to 1 GBytes.

You may have to "rescue a broken system". Assuming the disk is good, this would be a good time to backup things before the problem gets worse. Generally people run a live or memory resident distro for this. Things will be a little different depending upon UEFI bios being in use. If you have UEFI bios, you will have a half gig FAT partition. You can see ...

The apt system and PyPI uses two different mechanisms.
