comment Starting Dropbox…Dropbox isn't running!
Same here. Unfortunately, I wanted to use X11 forwarding for the GUI, so disabling it is not a solution...

Both is possible. For importing you'll need a script for running adduser or useradd for each user. For LDAP you need to configure PAM. I recommend to focus your question to one of these two solutions because they are so completely different

comment 14.10 Software Updater not updating
@MarkGiblin An update is what Ubuntu and Debian call upgrade. Upgrade simply means "Getting new versions of packages which you have installed." btw. dist-upgrade means the same, but it installs new packages if dependencies change. It doesn't mean going to the next release. And apt-get install <pkgname> mean installing the package pkgname which is not yet installes. That's not what you want. Read the man apt-get

I'm curious? Did this answer help anyone? Did user402751 or @Frode try the steps?

The username is root? root isn't allowed to login to ssh using password authentication. You'll need a key login or change sshd_config

Proxy support is not per se broken, but problably some servers don't behave correctly. Did you ever use Wireshark for analyzing what's transported while downloading (Option 'Follow TCP stream)? Interesting are both HTTP headers and content. Normally, a bzip2 file shouldn't contain any usable output when piping through the string command. Just to make sure: are you using http or ftp servers?

comment Problem setting up a user-space LXC container
From my experience, Launchpad is not an option for this kind of unspecific problems. Normally it takes very long there for a bug to be seen, and very often bugs are closed because someone thinks it's not reproducible. Once it even happened that a because temporary closing of my bug all my attachments with complex screenshots were removed. some bugs are also open now for over 3 years and they are still reproducable in current releases. and the questions part of Launchpad is even worse: it's hard there to get attention. Better would be the Github issues page of LXC
