Add your edit about solving this as an answer instead.

comment Ubuntu One like service or location
@elopio Thats still not an Ubuntu-run thing - the question asks "is any new location or service being provided by Ubuntu for backup", which means that my answer stands that there's no ubuntu provided solutoin for this, and anything that could do it is third-party.

comment “Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable” warning
@PaddyLandau I believe there is a guide somewhere to get Pepper Flash working in Chromium, or even a package to do that, however don't quote me on that as I don't use Chromium so I can't attest to it.

comment How to prevent dput from uploading *.orig.tar.gz again?
Note that it's quite possible ~/.devscripts has the option -sa passed to debuild, which of course forces source upload, and it's bad to have that in there...

comment What does this error means?
That's a warning. It's not typically a critical software failure.

comment ffmpeg over https fails
ehh, 14.04 is... old enough that I think ffmpeg was broken... I'll poke at this and see if I can make it build as is in 15.04 and later... later, around my work break.

Include the full error output from apt-get, or the entire apt-get output that shows you that error.

comment Ubuntu server 14.04 Webmin installed
Keep in mind registrars might force you to a 2-name server setup - to provide a level of failover. 1&1, Gandi.net, and godaddy are examples of such registrars who complain...

comment Do I need “KALI” linux to do hacking?
@RafaelVicuna that's a generic Linux question better suited for Unix and Linux, then, 'cause this is an Ubuntu forum and your question is distribution-agnostic.

comment Why do I get a “???” error when I try to install Ubuntu 15.04 64-bit?
Just put the URL to your images in, rather than adding as an image. That way we can just easily put the image in place (those of us with edit powers)

comment Nmap Logs Question
Funny thing about zenmap which you say below. It's not always as reliable as the nmap tool being called from the command line. Call your same command directly from the command line with nmap and not zenmap and see if you get different output.
