comment How can I create an alias for cd and ls?
I had problems redefining cd because rvm changes my cd definition too. See stackoverflow.com/a/19941991/1601989

Try installing those two manually, maybe there are security updates that won't allow you to install an older version.

comment How do I format my 24gb SSD for ubuntu?
Haven't had that problem before, the one thing I do know is that some bios can't read /boot partitions bigger than 1GB, so you should also reduce the size of that partition.

Disabling secure boot is exactly what I meant. Are you having that issue even after disabling secure boot?

Can you disable EFI through bios? If you aren't doing dual boot then you really don't need to keep it.
