comment Dropbox fail in Ubuntu 12.04
Reboot the system - since you don't have sudo you can't stop the process so you have to otherwise force all process death - shutoff.

Does your email provider permit you to use external clients to connect? Not all providers let you use thunderbird or similar to access mail.

comment Why is the Ubuntu-for-Windows default shell a root shell?
I'm not sure this is on topic here as this is not really Ubuntu on Windows, it's just a Bash on Windows, with 'some' ubuntu stuff. Still ultimately Windows.

comment Micromax modem not working in ubuntu 15.04 and 16.04 beta
Given your edits: 15.04 is End of Life. 16.10 doesn't exist (beta or otherwise). You may wish to try 15.10.

comment Purging custom .deb package through script exits suddenly
@YaduKrishnan Then you have to read the output from the logs and debug your package. It looks like your package is trying to access something that doesn't exist - time to check your package for errors and flaws. (We didn't write your package, we can't debug your package)

comment What's the meaning of `-uc -us` options in `debuild -uc -us`?
@SargeBorsch Read the "Examples" section of the manpage, it says it right here: "dpkg-buildpackage(1) options may be given on the command line." And provides examples with -uc -us.

comment Purging custom .deb package through script exits suddenly
@YaduKrishnan dpkg is running somewhere else then. Automated updates, or whatever, are currently running - you can't run this while Update Manager, or apt-get or Synaptic or any other package management stuff is going on. The script isn't at fault.

comment How to update Ubuntu 14.04 from BIOS to UEFI?
@Isaac_E If your Windows is in EFI and your Linux is on BIOS, there may be conflicts. It may be simpler to just reinstall things. (In 99% of all cases, I do NOT run things in 'both' - not all mobos can support both modes, AFAIK)

comment How to install virtual machines using VMware in Ubuntu server using the terminal?
... in reality, though, you would be using KVM or libvirtor one of the other virtualization solutions that comes available in Ubuntu to work with VMs on those servers.

comment How to install virtual machines using VMware in Ubuntu server using the terminal?
You can't. The VMware products that are designed to work on non-hypervisor systems (where hypervisor means an ESXi dedicated machine) are UI-driven for VM creation. CLI tools are not documented well for this in Workstation or any other solution, if they even exist. The CLI tools for creating a VM are, as far as I can tell, part of the ESXi hypervisor suite, and that is a dedicated operating system used solely for running VMs. Virtualbox is the only solution I know that might work, but it's GUI driven too. ...

I wonder if this is a gpt partition table since fdisk can't see it.

comment Simplest way to resize partions
This is not the partition layout of your system - it only shows us the mount points. Doesn't tell us what we absolutely need to know. Show us the output of sudo fdisk -l.

comment How to install virtual machines using VMware in Ubuntu server using the terminal?
This is not well documented in VMware Workstation 10 and up, the last documentation I can find is VMware Workstation 5.5 and it's likely that's obsolete. It sounds to me like you need a server that can actually DO virtual machines, which would be VMware ESXi (unlikely to be installed on a remote server), or perhaps setting up your system to run VMs without VMware - the server guide for 14.04 explains this. VMware Workstation is GUI-driven, though, so if it's on a remote GUI-less server, then it's not the right option for you.

NEVER edit your VM when it's running. It will break things.

comment How to restrict root's installation capabilities
/var/log/apt/history.log will show the apt ones when apt-get and such are used. This doesn't give you a command log of what was run under that session though, if they didn't use apt

comment i want to install lets encrypt ssl, but it didn't success
The issue youhave here seems to be you have outdated information in PPAs. Firstly, your one PPA 404s. Secondly, the system doesn't have a valid signature on libssl-dev. Run apt-get update again, on its own, then try and do sudo apt-get install libssl-dev, then install the packages you were trying to install.
