comment How to install software or upgrade from an old unsupported release?
@Yokhen If the line didn't begin with deb <siteurl>, then most likely your /etc/apt/sources.list file has become corrupted due to some reason. Please follow the answers given at: How do I restore the default repositories?. That would restore the correct /etc/apt/sources.list for you and then follow my answer to change the servers to point to the old-releases server.

comment What editor provides highlighted and clickable hyperlinks? (similar to Notepad++)
BTW, what are those links? Link to files (like pdf, jpg, png, exe, deb, zip, etc) that you want to download? In such a case, you can simply use wget to download all the links by providing it the --input-file or -i option; like wget -i /path/to/file/containing/links.

comment The network speed of System Monitor cannot be shown in Ubuntu 14.04
@Marslo Great... as mentioned in that answer, you would need to check for updates to that kernel yourself to remain updated. Right now the latest kernel in 3.14 series is v3.14.12.

comment Ubuntu Touch HDMI out support on a Nexus 10
@guntbert I don't think it qualifies as a dupe. OP is already using Nexus 10 (or planning on using it) which is one of the supported devices. The question is if Ubuntu Touch is capable of streaming HDMI content on an external device. user298623, have you tried streaming the content. Do you get some sort of error? A little bit more information would be helpful to give an answer.

comment What should I learn to contribute Ubuntu?
It's fine that you know how to contribute. But if you really want to make a contribution, you need to narrow down the scope in respect of which you want to contribute. If in terms of designing, narrow it down to only a design question and say what you already know about it. If in terms of writing code, narrow it down to what languages you already know and what really excites you or you specialize in and similarly for other different paths of contribution. Right now after the edit, it would be too broad to give you a specific answer.

comment Keyboard Shortcut for Dash previous?
@Braiam: You may call it being lazy but that is how I would prefer it to be. I would want all the shortcuts concerning a single application/environment in a single place rather than being littered all around and having to search all over the place... It literally makes no sense to me to follow the approach you want to follow.. There have been 3 other members beside me who have cast their votes or voiced their opinions accordingly.

comment Keyboard Shortcut for Dash previous?
@Braiam There are about 50 shortcuts mentioned in that question. Do you think it would be better to ask (or reopen already closed) 50 different questions to cover them all? (I am fine with the view that we should close questions as duplicate if they are really duplicate, but in this particular case, I would prefer all the shortcuts available in a single compact place instead of me hopping over too many different links).

comment is there a keyboard shortcut to open dash previews?
That duplicate question does give an answer. Last bullet under the heading Dash mentions: Over an item, you can hit the Secondary key (commonly to the left of the right Ctrl) to see a preview of the item, as you can do with a secondary click over it.

comment Why does using double quotes to enclose awk's action statements produce different results than when using single quotes to enclose them?
Okay, didn't know that it is not necessary to define a variable in bash. If bash doesn't find a variable, it automatically expands it as empty. This answer on Server Fault clears it up.

Oh.. found this which explains the difference between single-quotes and double-quotes. That's clear.. Now, from where did bash get $2?

comment Why does using double quotes to enclose awk's action statements produce different results than when using single quotes to enclose them?
I am looking at the manuals as when are shell expansions performed. It doesn't mention anything about single quotes or double quotes. Why isn't expansion performed in case of single-quotes? And, from where did bash get $2 to be expanded? (Since, I am trying to learn things, I would like to understand what is happening) :)

@AvinashRaj Oh.. I thought you meant something else.

@AvinashRaj That would produce a syntax error, all the action statements in awk should be within { ... }.

What's the output of lspci | grep Ethernet? If it's Qualcomm Atheros AR8161/AR8162, then see this question.

comment Why “./” is used to run “.sh” scripts in Unix?
There is nothing off-topic about this question. If one wants to close just because it says "Unix", one needs to understand there is nothing so-unixy about this question. The question as-is is completely applicable for Ubuntu as well. Newcomers don't know a lot of distinction between Unix, Linux and other derivatives and they use the words inter-changeably. If one is concerned with the word "Unix" in title, edit it out!

comment Why am I not able to access the internet even though IPv4 address has been allotted by ISP?
@Seth I have incorporated all the important stuff into the question. But I guess all these comments do add a certain amount of value and should be kept. But if you feel they should be removed, go ahead :)

@Braiam See this paste. I hope it won't cause further problems. You may want to modify your answer accordingly and I would accept it.

Isn't it a duplicate of this question?

comment Why am I not able to access the internet even though IPv4 address has been allotted by ISP?
@terdon: This is the output of ifconfig when internet works. You were right, it shows my internal IPv4 addresses when things are right.
