comment how to remove update repo that always fails
I should have tried the "alternatively" first. The first fails with a chicken/egg problem. It refuses to remove a repo it can't connect to. Why the heck isn't that dialog available directly from the update-manager gui? Wouldn't that make sense?

comment ubuntu box just redisplaying login screen after update
In any case, I tried that suggested "--reinstall" line, but it didn't help.

Are you making a particular suggestion in either of these two comments? I don't see a specific suggestion, except for that command line, which I'm not certain you're certain about?
