comment How to force remove a package if dpkg removal script fails?
Brilliant, I had: post-removal script returned error exit status 1.. So, I found that script /var/lib/dpkg/info/{package}.postrm, went through it to verify that I had done the things in it (delete configs/files etc), then modified it to the above.. IT WORKS.. Apt works again. Amazing. :D

comment Umount when umount -lf doesn't work
ok, so still further googling reveals it might be the "hard" option, which apparently means it keeps trying indefinitely, I'll try remounting and see if that fixes it. serverfault.com/a/597322/35383

comment cron.daily jobs not running
Sure enough, it wasn't there on mine.. FFS, I am sure it WAS, as the script was executing a few months ago!: dpkg --get-selections | grep cron .. <swears>

Ahh, its clear now, I can see that too: 192.168.5.140 should be 192.168.56.140?

comment Not able to discover all avilable wifi networks in ubuntu 14.04 & weak signal strength
Are you getting any error messages? I've often found with unstable/poor wifi that its likely a driver issue, as booting into another OS on the same hardware the wifi would work fine, check /var/log/messages & dmesg for wifi issues.

Could be something simple like the swappiness needing tuned.

comment How do I find number of NICs in my system?
wlan0 = wireless NIC, eth0 = wired NIC.. so yes, you have two Network Interface Cards. dmidecode doesn't do networking, it does BIOS data.

Have you blocked the MAC address on the router? See if 64:31:50:1f:88:72 is on screenshots.portforward.com/routers/Motorola/SBG6580/…
