it depends on how you have your version of Ubuntu installed. If it's on a separate partition, you could just get the installation on a disk and run the installation and just run it under 'upgrade.' It will then do the update from there off of the disk itself. You could also just install over the older version with the newer version of ubuntu. WARNING! if you ...

Best option would be to backup the /home partition and reinstall rest of the system while keeping the /home partition as it is. Next time when you do the update, see carefully that no new windows have opened, updating to another release sometimes creates new windows that prompt you to clear some stuff or what ever, but they might not appear on top of the ...

This was fixed due to the help of @g_p and @muru, who pointed out the low disk space issue. Specifically @muru's link helped a lot. Be careful though, that you don't do what I did, and end up removing files that are actually important to the running of the PC (like the network). :)

The reason you pull in new kernel versions is that you have the shell package linux-image-generic installed, which does not contain the kernel image itself but at any given time depends on the most recently released kernel package. This is why you get a new kernel version installed even though its package name is different, containing the version number. ...

Just edit the /usr/bin/sa-compile file On line 278 add mkdir "$dirpath", 755; so that it looks like $log = ">>$dirpath/log"; # empty it mkdir "$dirpath", 755; open(ZERO, ">$dirpath/log") or die "cannot create $dirpath/log: $!"; then try to reinstall sa-compile

If you're on 12.04 or 10.04, you don't need to do anything special to upgrade. The usual procedure applies: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade Or, specifically: sudo apt-get install libc6 To verify, run apt-cache policy: $ apt-cache policy libc6 libc6: Installed: 2.15-0ubuntu10.10 Candidate: 2.15-0ubuntu10.10 Version table: *** ...

You've got a few possibilities, but before you do anything, make a system back-up! You've been promoted to user type 4! Then: You did make a system back-up, didn't you??? :P ;-) If both machines are identical, clone the working machine onto the non-working one. Kernel Linux 3.8.0-29-generic works.

you just have to enter recovery mode (from grub), get into root mount -rw -o remount / After running the above commands, the shell should be remounted with read/write permission.

Turns out installto.sh is not a linux shell script, though it ends with .sh. It is a PHP file that is meant to be run from the command line.

The latest version of PHP in Ubuntu 12.04 is currently 5.3.10-1. Given that you have 5.5.20-1, you clearly are using a third party PHP package, rather than the Ubuntu one. With Ubuntu you can choose either to run the version supplied with Ubuntu, or run a third party package. You seem to be doing the latter. Probably the best choice of PPA for PHP is ...

Hm... You can try this from terminal: sudo apt-get clean sudo do apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo do-release-upgrade or sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo do-release-upgrade -d I hope this helps.

To cover all your points of confusion: User interface: Both versions use the Unity interface (it's not like Windows, where basically every release gets its new UI.

The most important aspect is what you are looking for. For myself, I am looking for a stable platform that I can do my job on. Since my job is really unrelated to Linux or Linux Development, I picked LTS, which stands for Long Term Support. I want a platform that I know they will keep providing security and critical bug fixes. So I always pick the LTS ...

(sorry I cannot comment yet) There are a few options to break a bios: http://www.wikihow.com/Break-a-BIOS-Password Obviously a fresh install is recommended. Personally, I had a bad experience upgrading from 12 to 14. Some suggest to upgrade to 13 and then to 14.

I guess the issue might be with the default configurations that i used during the new kernel build process. I could resolve the issue with below steps: (1) After rebooting with new kernel image (V3.18.2), i went to settings->Display and tested with various available resolutions. Changing the resolution to 1366x768 worked in my case. (2) After applying the ...

Remove bash completely and restart your work: sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq bash (This command is forcing to remove bash) Then you could try to install it again: sudo apt-get install bash See also here, there is a similar problem: Package in a very bad inconsistent state

For what it is worth, my experience with v3.18.1 and .2 kernels is that these seem to have problems with USB devices not being detected. Due to this I went back to 3.16 yesterday. I ran 3.13.0-24-generic before that. The ones I tried in between 3.13 and 3.16 all had issues of some kind (yes these were "official" updates!). 3.16 causes spotread from argyll ...

Maybe it's only certain sources that include the ability to update. The linked you posted states that when you install with dpkg it bypasses apt and therefore won't get updated. As a test I searched what version of nodejs is available in Utopic (v0.10.25) and then installed nodejs (v0.10.20) using checkinstall I downloaded and extracted then ran: ...

The package manager doesn't care whether a package has been installed by dpkg or apt. If it finds a newer version of a package in the repositories that newer version gets installed. In your case that means your package gets updated if the package in the new Ubuntu version has a higher version number. See "How to prevent updating of a specific package?" if ...

I read the "advice" given on that bugreport but I think it was wrong. You're not supposed to download one .deb package but 3, depending on the architecture. See more details here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds#Installing_upstream_kernels It is a good idea to revert to using nouveau (the open source nvidia driver) if you're going to test a ...

One more thing to try is to upgrade the conflicting core packages. That is try $ sudo apt-get upgrade libc6 libc6-dev libc-dev udev This will likely give you a list of packages that this will remove. Its important that this list contains packages that came from ppas and not core packages like the above [BTW It will help if you have synaptic and/or ...

have you tried to clear the apt cache apt-get clean clear the error messages edit your sources list file. vi /etc/apt/sources.list After the source list file has been changed run apt-get update then try to upgrade/install packages

If a package wants you to reboot it creates the file /var/run/reboot-required.

You seem to have libc6, udev etc from ppas. Do you? These are just too fundamental for coming from outside ubuntu. I expect you will have to get rid of these ppas [from sources.list etc] and try again

Finally restart.sh is an auto updater of oscam server . I don't use it any more so it is ok. As for the SSH issue i am still searching and probably it has nothing to do with the oscam's restart.sh, maybe has to do with the upstart or systemV after the upgrade from 12.04 server LTS to 14.04 server LTS. I don't know. Thank you all !!

You have Debian repository in your source list (ftp.us.debian.org...) which is causing this problem. The latest version of locales available in Ubuntu 14.04 Repository is already installed on your system. Also this package has no file which will replace /usr/sbin/validlocale So removing this Debian repository from /etc/apt/sources.list should solve your ...

It looks to me as if you had mysql-server-5.5 already installed, at least the daemon mysqld is running. dpkg fails to stop this daemon. Try stopping it manually before running apt-get upgrade -f via sudo service mysqld stop.

Could you post the partitions? Maybe a gparted screenshot from your live system (don't know how to get it from the terminal). Have you installed GRUB on a separate partition, or is /boot on the same partition as the rest of your Ubuntu installation? Could it be that somehow the partition containing GRUB lost its "boot"-mark to the Windows partition? Try ...

You may have an issue with your LD_LIBRARY_PATH or something of that sort, possibly replacing the correct libexpat.so with some other one (i.e., something in /usr/local such as the library installed with MATLAB). This post addresses this problem: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2094005

If the add-apt-repository command doesn't work, you need to add the python-software-properties package first. Combined you would do: sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git git --version
