I had a similar problem but was stuck at starting mysql. ps fax | less and found frontend. It had a child which was running start mysql In another terminal I ran sudo stop mysql which seemed to free up whatever the start was waiting for and the install continued. I suspect this is generally applicable. Find frontend's lowest child process and kill or ...

You're lucky if you can even update a current install - I haven't been able to run the security updates on mine for a few days now, timeout/connection problem on two internet connections. Apparently the 15.04 is too popular right now :)

The reason for this is that those repositories haven't yet been created, for whatever reason. Once they are created, they will only contain extras, but if you want these extras now, you can add the 14.10 extra repos. Comment on this answer if you want to know how. I'll add it in.

can you try that? $ sudo dpkg --configure -a If this useless, you can try to remove /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch (or better backup), then issue $ sudo dpkg --add-architecture foreign-architecture

Is it feasible for you to install 14.10, rather than upgrading to it? I find upgrading to be frequently problematic. I moved to a Debian flavor of Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu), because it has rolling releases and never needs to be 'upgraded'. As a general rule, you should also partition your harddrive so you can perform full install 'upgrades' without ...

There's a bug where the installer hangs instead of formatting the partition in some cases. I ran into it doing a "Something Else" install, but managed to press on by starting over with an "Upgrade" install. If you provide more info, someone may be able to tell if this is your situation.

I guess since you have a blank screen you have little information to give us. Here's how I suggest you start: CTRL-ALT-F1 should get you to a virtual console so that you can actually see stuff (even if X is not working). If this doesn't work, then the problem is likely more than just the X server. You should see something like: Ubuntu 15.04 hostname tty1 ...

About the downloaded files, they will be saved when the connection lost. You can redo the upgrade and this time it will resume the downloading. You will not have to download whole data again.

Boot your system from live DVD or live USB, then install boot-repair and run it. The following pages help to install and run boot-repair. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair How to install the Boot-Repair tool in an Ubuntu live disc?

Well, maybe this is included in another package. Try opening a Terminal window (Ctrl + Alt + T) and simply run: libnl1 It will say something like Could not find this command, but if libnl1 is included in another package it will say but you can get it by running certain command. Try it and come tell us what you got.

I've found the answer, I just needed to build from source again. I was using 1.2 RC2,so installing from apt-get wasn't helping me. Karel was correct in the dependency change, but after my upgrade I still had the compiled binary for 14.10. Thanks for all your help guys!

That is an old release. Try making a fresh install of 14.04, you will not be able to upgrade with such an old Ubuntu version.

In Ubuntu/Lubuntu 15.04 airodump-ng is provided by the package aircrack-ng from the default Ubuntu repositories. To install it open the terminal and type: sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng It may also interest you to know that the dependency for aircrack-ng in Lubuntu 15.04 is not called libnl1, instead it is libnl-3-200.

As Gregory pointed out, use either Unetbootin or Universal USB Installer to create a live bootable USB drive. Then if you boot from this USB and select install,it will ask you whether to upgrade to 14.04 ( if indeed you are running versions < 14.04).

I personally use Unetbootin and create a bootable USB drive to install my distros, And it gives me the ability to try it out and make sure everything works before I install.

Currently gnome-shell version 3.16 is not available for ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn). But It's available for ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) and ubuntu 15.04 was released on 23 April 2015. So now you can upgrade to 15.04 by sudo do-release-upgrade. And to upgrade gnome-shell to 3.16, add following ppa repository and run sudo apt-get update && sudo ...

This is, very simply, a mis-use of sudo on your part. The redirection in the command sudo gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache is enacted by the shell and happens before the sudo command is executed with superuser permissions. So the shell tells you that permission is denied when attempting to ...

Some important notes: Lubuntu 12.04 is an LTS (Long Term Support) release, it will be supported till April, 2019. Lubuntu 14.10 is a normal release and its support will end in July, 2015. So, unless you have a very good reason you should stick with 14.04 LTS. Also check Ubuntu release cycle insights. Lubuntu 15.04 has been release this month, this one will ...

I had a similar issue where the normal boot sequence got into a repeated failure pattern like your posted video shows. To be sure you can look at the log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log. In my case, I was able to boot into recovery mode, drop to a root shell, then install a different nvidia driver. In my case, nvidia-340 was installed after the upgrade to 15.04, ...

Yesterday I stumbled into the same problem. I upgraded from 14.10 to 15.04 and during the upgrade I got the same errors as you get. Luckily I was able to pinpoint the cause of the issue.

Short answer: you can't upgrade. Long answer: I think there is a confusion in your mind. Please, allow me to clear that for you.

Even if they have a lot in common - Ubuntu can be considered the "parent" distro for Caixa Mágica, from the moment when ...

Ok, found an answer in Arch Wiki. They give the next solution: There is just one thing systemd cannot do (as of systemd-204): power management depending on whether the system is running on AC or battery.

This error was common while trying out 12.04. I hope the same solution would help you too. It happened when you want to keep your old /home partition, chances are you’ve come across the installation hanging on a process “Removing conflicting operating system files…”. No worries, this seems to be a common bug and there’s a pretty easy work around. Continue ...

Ubuntu 14.04 was released as an LTS (Long Term Support) where it is stable, and the patches / updates will continue for years. Ubuntu 15.04 is a non-LTS release, and will only be supported for a short time, like a only a few months. I prefer the LTS releases for my everyday usage system, and when I want to test things out I use the non-LTS releases to ...

Insert medium of installation (DVD, flash drive, etc) Open dash (hit windows key) and type in "startup disk creator" and select that program.

You make a USB bootable or you put your image on a dvd. Then start your computer on the chosen support and make a classic install. It will ask you if you want to reinstall your system or if you want to upgrade it. Choose «upgrade to 15.04» then procede.

14.04 is an LTS version. By default it will only upgrade releases every two years when the next LTS comes out.

Do you have any particular reason to circumvent the use of dnsmasq? otherwise, I'd suggest reverting your changes to NetworkManager.conf and then reconfiguring the resolvconf package. After that, you should be able to add your chosen DNS servers via the 'IPv4 Settings' tab of the nm-applet GUI, after changing the mode from 'Automatic (DHCP)' to 'Automatic ...

I think the answer is in the first screenshot you sent: "A previous upgrade which didn't complete".

For any configuration file for which apt has posed a question, apt will keep a backup based on the action you took. If you chose to replace the current file with the package file, the original will be saved with the extension dpkg-old. If you chose to keep the current file, the new one from the package will be kept with the extension dpkg-dist. ...

Try using the package from the repository, sudo apt-get install python-pip If this gives you errors, you might first want to do a sudo apt-get remove python-pip and then try again with install. This also shouldn't interfere or remove the modules you already installed.

Apparently it some sort of powerful SQL thing. I am not sure what exactly. However in this case the problem was that it was a leftover file in /etc/init.d/ that famously gets in the way of upgrades. I moved it with sudo mv /etc/init.d/virtuoso-nepomuk ~ which stuck it in my home folder to be dealt with later.

Ah... you have alerted us to some out of date documentation. As of the 1.20 release of Juju, all development versions are tagged with -alpha or -beta. 1.22.1 and 1.21.3 are both fully supported, released versions of Juju. To migrate an environment from 1.21.3 to 1.22.1, you do the following: juju upgrade-juju That is all. By default it will look for a ...

The do-release-upgrade command, the Update Manager, the Software Sources program and the Software Centre all share a few common libraries and configuration files.
