Yeah but our 14.04 server is hosted and has no GUI

comment Upgrading Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS: legacy PPA upgrade
Another question: if I don't re-enable PPAs, do the corresponding packages get uninstalled? Or are they "dead" and will never get an update again? Or do they somehow become "normal pagkages" and will start getting updated by Ubuntu when it's the case? Example: nginx. Since the package exists in default Ubuntu: if I have its PPA disabled, will nginx still start? Will it start getting updated in the default regular Ubuntu way?

Thank you. In case I want to re-enable some of those now disabled PPAs do I just follow the same procedure I used to install them or do I really have to go find files and edit them? And where do I find those files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory or also somewhere else?

comment Apt-get dist-upgrade wants to destroy my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Further inspection reveals that there's something going wrong in the "has been fixed as of today". HTop screenshot shows how the basic services seem to have been loaded but not the init.d services. I have just checked, the scripts are still there (upstart and not), the symlinks in rcX.d too. They just don't get called at all. I enabled bootlogd and unlike before the upgrade, now it won't show any service being started (it won't even show a failure, just nothing at all). Could I do anything to fix this? Or to help you find what's broken?

Hello and thank you so much for your many efforts! Could you please check if your reply is related to my question here? It really smells about "systvinit" and similar "dark side" stuff to me: askubuntu.com/questions/420753/…

comment Wireless lan connection stops working after 3 pings or after loading one web page
I have found a solution that should fix some if not all of those issues. If it could be of any use I might post an howto.

The computer is meant to work 99% without graphical UI (only invoked for maintenance), it has to establish VPN connections and other things since boot.

comment Since August I can't upgrade the kernel any more
Hello, I have installed linux-generic and also the headers. However a subsequent apt-get dist-upgrade still rips everything off. So, I tried letting it remove the kernel and then installed linux-generic and headers and checked grub-pc was installed. When I rebooted... server completely dead, not even a message or anything. I don't know where to begin to make it run again, all I can do is to restore the imgage backup I created right before trying this fix. This is odd, as I recall dist-upgrade used to NOT remove all and did not require linux-generic reinstall. And most of all, the server booted
