comment What do these commands from a shell script do?
@Seth Thanks for the edit. Btw, the way I noticed this was that I was trying to figure out what the intent of that line was, in the script. As written, I don't think it actually works. The pipeline with ps and grep works fine, but it won't be run when written like that on the right-hand side of a variable assignment. At first I wondered if the goal was to assign its return value, but since grep was run with -c I realized the output is what's probably meant to be used. (Thus the right-hand side of the assignment should be surrounded in $( ) or ` `.)

@LautaroAlvarez For more information on the wait command, run help wait in your shell. (help doesn't give information on all commands, just commands that are built into the shell. For external commands man usually provides handy reference information.)

comment How to modify a invalid /etc/sudoers file? It throws out an error and not allowing me to edit again
@Lucas pkexec is installed by default on most desktop Ubuntu systems, though not on many server and minimal systems. If you don't have pkexec, you cannot use the pkexec-based way, as you'd have to first fix the problem in order to install pkexec. (Manual, non-root installations by copying pkexec and supporting files from another machine will not give pkexec the ability to perform actions as root.) So if you have this problem and don't have pkexec, you'll instead have to use a less convenient method, like booting into recovery mode (as Seth suggests) or using a live CD/DVD/USB.

comment cannot make sublime text 3 work on ubuntu 14.04
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Unfortunately this does not appear to answer what the OP is really asking. They have already attempted to install Sublime Text from both the 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (amd64) packages. You are correct that "exec format error" suggests their system is 32-bit, but they've already tried your advice of attempting to install with the 32-bit package.
