He had problems running apt-get update so your recommended solution is to run apt-get update?!

comment Release upgrade to 14 failed with a Python exception
Thanks for the update. But it still doesn't explain why I'm getting the error on my server. Note, it's not a desktop.

comment Release upgrade to 14 failed with a Python exception
What? This has nothing to do with my question. I'm trying to upgrade my release to 14.04, not a normal package upgrade. Please delete this answer or I will downvote it.

comment Gnome Ubuntu 14.04 aticonfig: No supported adapters detected ati radeon 6770m
Turned out, I had to uninstall the fglrx package, with is the crappy proprietary ATI driver that drops support for all cards older than a couple of years, but still disables the built-in open source driver that works perfectly.

comment Radeon HD 2000, 3000, 4000 on Ubuntu 12.04.2 and higher: fglrx (legacy) unsupported, what to do?
I think you had the opposite problem. This will help because ATI is no longer supported cards less than 5000. This works because you purged the proprietary driver, allowing the better built-in open source driver to do its thing. I didn't have any desktop at all after upgrading from 12.04 to 14.04, and this fixed everything for me.

Rebooting didn't help. It still finds no supported adapters.

comment What software should I install for opening .stl files?
That doesn't seem to work very well. And technically, that doesn't let you edit the STL file. It just converts the STL file to OpenSCAD's internal format using raytracing, which takes forever.

comment What software should I install for opening .stl files?
It might be a newer feature. The current version is 2014.03, but the version in the repo is 2013.02.28.
