comment ubuntu server 14.04 port 21 keeps closing
The bigger concern is sudo service networking restart won't solve the port 21 being 'closed' issue on its own - it is better to identify what is actually happening than to assume the networking is causing it - it could be the kernel killing the ftp program, for instance.

comment ubuntu server 14.04 port 21 keeps closing
When it stops working on port 21, does any kind of error get presented to you? As well, where you're running proftp, when it 'stops working', does sudo netstat -tlpn | grep :21 show anything listed still?

iptables isn't a service that can be started and stopped. This answer won't help the user.

comment unix - disable “su” for ssh'ers
Not giving out sudo access is a good start. Restricting to SSH Key Auth only is another good step.

comment ubuntu is trying to upgade from 14.04 to 12.10
I just followed your steps and changed 'only lts' to 'any version'. The prompt shows 14.10, not 12.10. Please confirm that it actually said 12.10 instead of 14.10. (An Lubuntu VM and an Xubuntu VM also show the same - 14.10, not 12.10)

comment ubuntu is trying to upgade from 14.04 to 12.10
William: Are you sure that it said 12.10? 12.10 isn't even available in the repositories and hasn't been for some time, so it makes no sense that your system would say 12.10. Are you sure it didn't say 14.10?

comment Error installing Elementary os Luna (Ubuntu based) on iMac
Also, please be aware: Your previous question here was closed for the same reason - please do not post Elementary OS questions here because they are indeed offtopic.

comment Error installing Elementary os Luna (Ubuntu based) on iMac
Elementary OS is not a supported variant of Ubuntu. It is offtopic on this site, and you should instead use Unix and Linux for assistance with it.

comment how to install virtual machine on ubuntu 13.10 (base machine)?
13.10 is End of Life. Questions relating to 13.10 that are not related to upgrading from 13.10 to a supported release are off topic.

comment How can I re `./configure` on a package installed via `apt-get`?
@user4166144 correct - you would have to manually update every release if you have a custom binary with custom changes.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 Vulnerable to Shellshock?
@dli note that a simple sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade will fix this on installed OSes - however as muru states the ISOs are not updated themselves, so only updating your system with apt-get or Update Manager (if GUI) will fix it on actual installs.

comment Install old software versions (such as Firefox 22) in Ubuntu
@Daniele I've updated my answer to include instructions for Firefox, but I have not tested them, and there is NO GUARANTEE that Update Manager and apt-get will not try and make you upgrade the version later. The instructions are solely for Firefox, as it is impossible to provide instructions for every piece of software.
