comment Why use apt-get upgrade instead of apt-get dist-upgrade?
Do you have a source for your description of apt upgrade? Everything I can come up with suggests that apt upgrade is the same as apt-get upgrade. For example, apt help upgrade on my system outputs: "apt upgrade" is equivalent to "sudo apt-get upgrade"

comment What is the difference between apt and apt-get?
This doesn't answer the question. The OP is referring to the command apt as it differs to the command apt-get, not the software package named APT.

comment Can't format or delete partitions in pendirve cause of gpt table error
This answer is wrong. You probably meant sudo gdisk /dev/sdX instead of sudo parted /dev/sdX. The former achieves the result you describe. The latter doesn't have commands o or w and is in fact the same program that generates the error described by the OP. I can confirm that using gdisk instead of parted, your solution fixed the same problem as the OP for me.

Can you clarify what you mean by "run Fixparts"? When I run the command fixparts /dev/sdb I just get a prompt from which I must type a command. Is there a specific command for removing leftover GPT data? I didn't see any mention of this in the help.

comment How to install Eclipse?
@memilanuk Of course. I read the dates. My comment is no less valid for someone reading the thread today than it was back then - the package being out of date is even mentioned in the OP (in 2011) as the motivation for the question. The point is that the Ubuntu repositories are not a good source for obtaining the latest version of this particular package.

@memilanuk Unfortunately if you do that you'll have to put up with a version which is almost 2 years old.

comment Screen Resolution Problem with Ubuntu 14.04 and VirtualBox
Excellent. Out of all the answers, this is the only one which worked for me, with Ubuntu 14.04.2 64 bit guest and Windows 7 host.
