comment What does `nomodeset` do
@Cleb , nomodeset is a temporary solution/workaround until fixing the graphic card, either by installing a driver (if exits) or upgrading to a newer version. It can be cause several problems depending on Kernel version, hardware...etc. I would suggest to open a new question here on AskUbuntu or in ubuntuforums.org, describing the problem in details.

comment USB device in lsusb and dmesg, not in fdisk or /dev
From my knowledge, combined with the man pages of fdisk and lsusb, you're trying to use the wrong tool. Please read man fdisk and man lsusb . You camera recognized without problems as I can see, also if you want to locate it under /dev/ try /dev/usb/

comment Error running software updater
Please post full results of sudo apt-get update too. I see this is a DELL PC with Ubuntu pre-installed(certified hardware) and for that, it would be wise to contact with Dell support/forums also.

Then issue this command. find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \; . Edit your question and provide here ALL the results. Also provide the FULL RESULTS of sudo apt-get update command.

comment Can't clean a full /boot because of unmet dependencies
I edited the answer, because of a typo. You need to remove the package. The abi-3.13.0-32-generic is not the package name. Instead use linux-image-3.13.0-32-generic . Use the same naming for other images.
