comment apt-get segmentation fault (segfault at libapt-pkg)
This bug popped up ootb; your answer fixed it for me: thanks! -- But how? What's the rationale? Why that (exact) directory, filename, one-liner? Where did you derive the syntax for the latter? also: is the number a randomly chosen high number?

comment How can I improve Ubuntu overall system performance?
But: do so manually and perhaps via the command line. Daily updates via update mgr can freeze old systems (leaving you guessing what's going on).

If you computer's old, this may work mechanically (e.g. SSD with IDE connector), but as intended: a speed increase will depend on other bottlenecks of your system (like IDE connectors , for instance :)
