OK I fixed it. The trick was to reinstall libc-bin, and then APT would automatically reconfigure those packages, and everything would be fine.

Error E: The value 'wily' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources occured during repositories reconfiguration. It was caused by content of /etc/apt/apt.conf where wily was set instead of xenial. I changed this file's content to APT::Default-Release "xenial"; and next upgrade attempt finished successfully.

First I would check to see what package APT is configured to install (out of the available options), you can do this with: apt-cache policy nginx e.g. % apt-cache policy nginx nginx: Installed: 1.10.0-0ubuntu0.16.04.2 Candidate: 1.10.0-0ubuntu0.16.04.2 Version table: *** 1.10.0-0ubuntu0.16.04.2 500 500 http://nz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu ...

Try: sudo apt-get clean (is what cleans out unused package stuff. ) or/and sudo apt-get autoremove (will clean up any packages that are no longer needed.)

Your processor is Intel Pentium N3540. This is affected by the c-state bug, where the processor attempts to go into unsupported sleep states. This happens with many Baytrail devices when using newer kernels. I have the same problem. There is a simple workaround for this until it gets properly fixed upstream. You just need to pass a kernel boot parameter and ...

I think the last cleaning process runs something like this: sudo apt-get clean which removes any downloaded packages already installed, and this command: sudo apt-get autoremove will remove any packages no longer in use like old kernels and the like.

Here you go: No difference between the contents, only that 10periodic will be parsed earlier than 20auto-upgrades due to the ascending parsing behavior of apt. If same directive is mentioned in two different files (or more), the the earlier one(s) will be overridden by the last one. No. APT::Periodic::AutocleanInterval takes an integer value and sets the ...

I had the same problem caused by issues from PPA for Ubuntu toolchain. My computer would not boot because of it. Following @w00kie's comment on his answer, I downloaded (from tty terminal) the debian of package libstdc++6 for Xenial at link http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/libstdc++6 and installed using dpkg -i. The computer works just fine now.

There is a much simpler way to achieve the upgrade: 1st goto -> Software Sources -> Updates There is a field that allows the system to check for new versions: LTS only / any / never. Select "any" LTS will only be available with 16.04.1 Just remember to set it back to LTs before Oct.2016 if it's not in your nature to go in sync with every new release of (K)...

I have no experience with running mentioned software on Ubuntu but my overall experience is following: There is basically no need for reinstalling a software after system upgrade unless it gets unmet dependencies. In that case you’ll need to upgrade such software. This may happen to Matlab as it is not installed using APT. However, Matlab R2016a supports ...

You should be able to press the power button to bring it out of slumber. If this does not work, you can usually do a hard power off by pressing the power button and holding it down until the computer shuts off. If you need to, reinstall using a live CD or DVD.

This worked! I'm now the happy user of 16.04. sudo lsof /var/lib/dpkg/lock sudo kill -TERM <PID> sudo dpkg --configure -a

I had the same issue (HP EliteBook 840 G1) and it was related to the HDMI sound output on my hybrid graphic card (Even I had no external HDMI monitor connected). And therefore I did what I already had done in previous ubuntu 14.04 release, I disabled HDMI sound output and only left PCH sound output: Check the sound outputs: cat /proc/asound/cards 0 [...

According to https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/246, I suggest adding Dropbox's APT repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list by running: sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu xenial main" Then, import Dropbox's GPG keys using: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E

Looking around, it appears to be that some people were able to solve this issue simply by using OpenGL. You can try changing Preferences -> Video -> Output and switching Default to OpenGL. It would also be helpful if you posted the output of: lspci | grep VGA so that we could know what GPU you're using. You could also try installing graphics drivers (...

You could try to reinstall bluetooth: sudo apt-get purge bluetooth sudo apt-get install bluetooth That worked for me.

No. There's currently no fglrx or because the latest Ubuntu release dropped amd's propietary drivers support. Also, if you have an APU (Accelerated Processor Unit), those AMD's apus with Turbocore you must stay away from installing Ubuntu 16.04. The actual drivers don't support boost processor states so your proc's performance will be limited to its common ...

My desktop went to same problem after upgrading to 14.04 lts from 12.04 lts. I found that the drivers needed were commented out in /etc/modprobe/blacklist.conf. I uncommented it and then booted desktop. My wifi is Ralink 5370, using RT2800 drivers.

I don't understand the error what they are, but could manage to make it work. I have used the following commands sudo apt-get install python-pkg-resources=3.3-1ubuntu1 sudo apt-get install python-setuptools pip install pywavelets and it solved my problem.

Absolutely no problem whatsoever. Like @JonasCz said, a good idea to try MATE or LXDE or even Gnome or XFCE. If you want a nicer feel, try LXDE with the cairo-dock. It works real good on similar specs for me.

Yes, you can run the latest version of Ubuntu. I have a similar laptop with a Pentium M, and Ubuntu MATE runs fine. However, you should definitely use one of the lightweight variants of Ubuntu, such as Ubuntu MATE or Lubuntu, as your laptop may not be able to run the standard Ubuntu with Unity adequately. The system requirements for Ubuntu can be found ...

Can anyone tell me why? Upgrades have not, are not and never will be automatic. It always needs a manual confirmation or for you to switch repositories. And what should I do if I want to upgrade to the newest version manually? check 'software & updates' and the 'updates' section and check that all the update are set to on. Bottom one is for ...

I've been upgrading Ubuntu since 10.04 every 6 months and I've never lost any personal files or installed software. But, after upgrading to Xenial, repositories working with Willy will become deactivated. So, you have to re-enable those repos (or PPAs) and edit the sources with the right information (distro name). You will also have to check if the ...

Upgrading will replace your current software with newer versions of that software. An upgrade can go wrong and if the end result is a reinstall your installed software will get removed. In theory software could be removed if it is deemed obsolete. Or replaced by something new (open office got replaced by libre office at some point; though the impact of that ...

I had the same problem. I installed all the updates under System Settings -> Details -> Overview -> Install Updates (Button in the bottom right corner. Ignore if it says System Up-To-Date) and rebooted my PC 3 times (ie: install updates then reboot, install updates then reboot, install updates then reboot, this was straight after a fresh install). Then ...

It turns out that when I did the apt-get upgrade, the install was not completely successful. Some packages were "held back" See this answer for more. Issuing another apt-get install on the held back packages fixed the problem.

This might be frowned upon, but you could try deleting the lock file... then re-attempting the upgrade: sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock

Start your computer and trigger the 'shift' button until the grub-menu occurs.

There are a number of questions similar to mine; obviously I didn't choose the correct keywords to find those questions initially. The answer is that Software Updater does not notify you of a new LTS upgrade until the first point release, e.g. 16.04.01 in the case of Xenial Xerus 16.04 LTS. To save you the trouble of finding those questions (which mostly ...

Check if you have linked stdc++ properly. E.g. try to build by g++, and use ldd to check where the library is. Then check if there is complete link hierarchy, e.g. (for stdc++): lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 40 cze 14 12:34 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so -> libstdc++.so.6 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 maj 11 02:36 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so....

It seems that python installation is broken .. Try reinstalling python3-minimal sudo apt-get install --reinstall python3-minimal Now you can run sudo apt-get install --fix-broken again and then apt-get update .. if this fails let us know.

You could try the following command sudo apt-mark hold <package_name> This will prevent it from being updated when running the usual upgrade command (sudo apt-get upgrade). It should also work in your case. To undo this you can run sudo apt-mark unhold <package_name> It probably isnt a good idea to prevent packages from updating. New ...

It is possible it moved off screen. Change your display settings to something smaller, then back to what they usually were at. This will probably move the window back on-screen. If it is still downloading stuff (check a network manager), you can safely cancel it, or even just restart if you want. If it is using a lot of CPU, it is probably installing the ...

I can't explain why it gives you the option and then ignores your response. Without installing, I can't confirm that behaviour, however, it's easy to fix it.

You can upgrade from 14.04 32 bit to 16.04 64 bit, but not easily and not well. The best solution for you would probably be to back everything up and do a clean install of Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit. However, if you want to try it anyways, do all the steps in the answer to this question. How can I switch a 32-bit installation to a 64-bit one? Then in a ...

The Startup Disk Creator in 14.04 is not the very best one...use UNetbootin instead, it works flawless! Insatll it from the Softwarecenter or: sudo apt-get install unetbootin In 16.04 the Startup Disk Creator works fine, but not the one in 14.04... I had the exactly same problem...

I just ran into this same problem (though I recently upgraded from 15.10 to 16.04). I fixed it by going into ~/.local/share/shotwell & renaming the data folder to data.bak (alternately you could delete it but you'll have no chance to recover it in the future). My old database is gone, but I can now open Shotwell & rebuild it.


1

I don't believe so. You'll have to upgrade 14.04 to 0.28 first, then backup the database, install 16.04 and then restore. It's possible that you can restore a 0.27 database to a 0.28 system and the backend will attempt to upgrade that when started, but I've not tested this.

This problem was almost auto-solved. The problem began when a WineHQ (Windows) apps chrashes. I think/guess/assume that some temporary hidden files used by that app, filled the partition. I ran that app again and... "magically" the partition goes back to the original state (more than 70% empty). The only one question still is in my mind is: Is there a ...
