comment How to download facebook videos by using 'youtube-dl' in linux?
@MadhavNikam Your second answer about Wine is not part of your question. Wine isn't in the question, so the answer is not useful except as a personal note to yourself. Regarding the 'software center not working' this is again something specific to you. I think the essence of your question is "How do I install software without sudo?" which has been asked and answered already. This is a dupe at best, if not completely off topic. Glad you figured it out though.

You can, or you can wait and see if others agree with my close vote. You could also edit the question to improve it and make it simpler, which would help users more. The title is good, but the body is confusing and does not match.

Glad you got it solved but I've downvoted and flagged for closure as it is unclear, and reading your multiple answers below reveals this simply required that you update youtube-dl which makes this a temporary problem unique to you and so off-topic here.

comment Is there a way to repair corrupt deja-dup backups?
@Ron no, OP says "...after trying to backup my system..." and same thing for me. Routine daily backup starts and then fails with the above error. In my case it was during a 'full' backup and not an incremental one, but I don't know if that matters.

Sure, I think we are basically talking about the same thing. I would toggle off, resize, then toggle back on each time.

comment How do I resize a window when the edge is hidden by overlay scrollbars?
It is this slow, fiddly behavior that I'm trying to avoid. It does work eventually but my workflow grinds to a halt every time I want to do this as I wait several seconds and make several attempts before I can grab the edge. A keyboard shortcut to temporarily disable the overlay would be great. Thanks for the reply & glad I'm not the only one having trouble with it.

Interesting, this isn't in the documentation but seems to work better. Now I'll have to see if I remember...

Interesting Guardian Project article here on package metadata leakage for non-HTTPS connections.
