comment Compiling PHP 5.3 on Ubuntu 14.04 - libtool: Version mismatch error
Is 12.04 also not supported by this regulatory compliance? If not, then you may end up being out of compliance until a refactor happens - 5.3 is ancient and not actually maintained anymore - security fixes are back ported manually by the security team, but that doesn't imply actual support. (Hate to say this as a response but....)

comment Compiling PHP 5.3 on Ubuntu 14.04 - libtool: Version mismatch error
PHP 5.3 is ancient and I doubt you will find a version that works on 14.04, even by compiling. Is there a reason this migration must happen now and can't be delayed until the application is modernized for PHP 5.4 or newer?

comment Problem with .deb packages on Ubuntu 16.04
@Tim then the title needs to be more verbose, or the question expanded - the question refers to dotDEB repositories

@DougSmythies I assume you didn't read where I said you have to enable the module...

comment Problem with .deb packages on Ubuntu 16.04
@Stan I edited your answer - there is a likelihood to break the dependencies with manual installed .deb files (hence run apt-get install -f afterwards). Also, you assume users are on as 'root' with your non-sudo commands - added that as well.

@MarkKirby Better to mark the bug report as "affects me" rather than pollute the bug report with extra information that may not be needed.

comment Problem with .deb packages on Ubuntu 16.04
@ShahramShinshaawh I have updated my answer to indicate that the message you saw isn't related - but how to manually override it and force it to install through the CLI. As well as how to address the dependencies issues.

comment Force Ubuntu 16.04 to reconfigure/reinstall Xenial packages
usually you try and set your system to a state where it won't be interrupted for the upgrade; this may sound counter-intuitive at some levels but it helps prevent things from getting busted by lockouts. I suspect you have some things that're broken so therefore you're about out of luck.

You can try sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a; but it may not work and you may be faced with a reinstall

comment How to use snaps via the CLI and GUI?
Not all snaps come with GUIs, you know. Some may only be CLI, and/or need you to create .desktop launchers to launch them.

comment BOOT Repair - No F4 Factory Recovery - Just one large partition.. :-(((((
No - you didn't listen to my first post. Your hard drive may be damaged, given what is being displayed by Boot Repair. If you can't mount your hard disk, then you're not going to be able to recover data very easy. If at all. And you still need to contact the manufacturer for hardware support.

I trust the Boot Repair output more than fdisk. It uses parted and other methods to detect device partition tables - fdisk also doesn't handle GPT all that well.

comment Error installing ubuntu 15.04 due to acpi_pm_good_setup
Also, your screenshot does not work (it's behind a DropBox login page) . Upload it to Imgur, and then put that link in instead.

15.04 is past End of Life, and is not supported anymore. Use Ubuntu MATE 16.04 instead.

Lines 96 and 97 show "Input/Output error" - this usually points to a dead/dying drive. Try mounting the partitions and copying off the data you want to keep - then contact Samsung for hardware tech support.

comment Is there any way I can fix my corrupted Hard Drive?
Four blocks bad out of 488386583 blocks is nothing. Also, you cannot repair bad blocks. What makes you think your drive is 'corrupted'? Only four bad blocks is nothing.

comment Can't login to Ubuntu 16.04 after upgrade
I would consider this to be extremely 'dangerous' - the script has not been vetted, is extraordinarily complex, and very well may introduce negative or malicious items to the computer you are on.

We need to first know waht type of computer they have before you can make this recommendation. All in ones don't necessarily have outputs, for example, for video for monitors...
