I am trying to run sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y but it is throwing series of errors. I am new to Linux environment.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver

sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y

Thank You

  • Old unanswered question askubuntu.com/questions/1046228/… for the main bunch of errors. For the root errors you need to put sudo in front of the 2nd command (sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade. Is this the first/only time you have had connection errors? – Wilf Jun 29 '18 at 9:07
  • I am getting these errors from tomorrow after I installed VirtualBox. Is there any mirror to these sources? And how can I change them? Thank you – Amit Singh Gaur Jun 29 '18 at 9:11
  • It looks like you don't have a working internet connection. Is this a real machine or are you running a virtual machine in virtual box (I don't understand your virtualbox reference sorry). I'd suggest trying to ping a web site using ip.address (say 8.8.8.8 or google.dns), then try with a human.address (say google.com) - do any get thru. If first does, second doesn't you have a DNS error. If none get thru you have networking issues you must correct first. – guiverc Jun 29 '18 at 9:17
  • I do have a working internet connection. I am able to ping www.google.com. I am running Ubuntu on the physical machine. Is there any chance that the error is because of Ubuntu server problem ? – Amit Singh Gaur Jun 29 '18 at 9:40

    You are unwisely using sources from different releases of Ubuntu: artful and bionic. Don't do that. Stick with one release. While not responsible for your network problem today, mixing versions will surely break your system someday. – user535733 Jun 29 '18 at 13:37

Your command line contains one occurrence of sudo but also &&. In this case, sudo only applies to the former command, not the part after &&. Add sudo to the latter command, too.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

However, there is at least one more problem:

502  Connection timed out [IP: 2001:67c:1360:8001::21 80]

which means you should check your network connection.

Generally, you should run commands manually one by one (i.e. avoid &&, -y etc.) to diagnose problems.

Try these commands:

sudo -i
apt-get clean
cd /var/lib/apt
mv lists lists.old
mkdir -p lists/partial
apt-get clean
apt-get update

    Won't solve a timeout issue. – Thomas Ward Sep 24 '19 at 20:58
  • Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Thank you for this code, which might provide some limited, immediate help. A proper explanation would greatly improve its long-term value by showing why this is a good solution to the problem and would make it more useful to future readers with other, similar questions. Please edit your answer to add some explanation, including the assumptions you’ve made. – Melebius Sep 25 '19 at 9:27
