comment How to fix errors running apt-get?
Looks like the issue is with a segmentation fault in the package, or within apt. Does this happen with any other packages?

comment Connecting to an Ubuntu Server using Ethernet cables but no internet connection
What it seems you need is a centralized file server to store files that need sharing between Ubuntu and other systems. This can be done only once you have router-like setups within your environment, either with a router or by setting up your Ubuntu server as a gateway. Then, you run Samba shares on the Ubuntu Server box, and that can be accessed by every system on the LAN. Once you have the networking stuff done though, look here for server config, and here for the clients

comment Connecting to an Ubuntu Server using Ethernet cables but no internet connection
The thing about LANs (Local Area Networks) is that within the network each system needs to be assigned an IP, a numeric number which identifies each system on the LAN (herein called 'network'). To do that easily, a DHCP server/client is required to assign IPs to each system. Otherwise, they cannot correctly communicate with one another. Just chaining every computer together via ethernet cables won't work, because they will all be attempting to request IPs but cant get any, therefore they can't connect to each other. That's why you need the DHCP server/client or a router. ...

comment How do I troubleshoot network issues with my VPS?
@Josh not necessarily. Rebooting a VPS only is a temporary stop-gap. When you run memory-intensive processes, say several instances of python, SSH, Apache + PHP, etc, your system will always reactivate programs, even after reboot. The result is that your RAM will continue to reach high usage limits, and I can confirm this occurs on Ubuntu Server instances, and Debian servers. Apache, PHP, and MySQL are three big memory hogs, if you use any of them, i'd go in and restrict their mem usage at the config level. Otherwise, contact the VPS host to have them troubleshoot the RAM spikes.

comment How to see the command attached to a bash alias?
@poolie Indeed. I think the question was to see all the aliases, though, which is why i did not elaborate further on the alias command.

@Josh you might consider reading my comment, as full memory use is a common cause of failed SSH and other failed network stuffs.

comment Crontab Output problem
I get what you're explaining, but I didn't understand the question being asked, because I didnt see any specific question within your post. Given your explanation, though, the question is "How can I get the crontab to display the output correctly?".

comment How do I troubleshoot network issues with my VPS?
What @ChrisS said is extremely true. However, if you have access to the VPS as root, you may consider using 'top' or 'htop' to see whether or not your system is having 100% CPU usage and/or 100% RAM usage (non-cache, but actual usage). If your system is using 100% CPU consistently, or is consistently using 100% RAM, you will run into these issues. (I've run into such issues as you describe in both situations I mentioned here)

The question you are asking seems to be semi ambiguous... are you asking "How can I get the cronscript to return the output in the format that I want?"
