I have discovered a new feature called Livepatch that keeps patching system between restarts. I am using Lubuntu 18.04.1 LTS. I went to the sign in button, and the "Choose an account" dialog appeared saying "To continue you need an Ubuntu Single Sign-on Account". I tried to press Sign in, but the button is disabled so it means that I can't sign in.

In my system, is there some packages related to Ubuntu Single Sign-on missing? Or is there something else wrong with it?

I am honestly running dual boot system in a 40GB Hard drive (Windows XP 30GB used for gaming and coding, Lubuntu 18.04 10GB used for other work). I am connected to WiFi.

  • Before you can "Sing in", you need to create an account. For more info, visit ubuntu.com/server/livepatch. – mikewhatever Sep 29 '18 at 10:33
  • I have followed the steps on the link provided, but I think that the snap package named canonical-livepatch is only for 64-bit systems. I am on 32-bit, because Athlon XP 1500+ doesn't have 64-bit so I have to wait for 32-bit. – Eofla Sep 29 '18 at 13:04
  • Indeed, according to the System Requirements paragraph, live patch is only available for 64bit systems. – mikewhatever Sep 29 '18 at 15:13
  • Thanks for the info, but why can't they make it for 32-bit? – Eofla Sep 29 '18 at 15:17
  • Live patch is intended for system that run 24/7, most of which are 64 bit. More importantly, how useful would it be in your particular case, on a dual boot system that would be rebooted every few days, if not more often? I'd say, not at all. – mikewhatever Sep 29 '18 at 15:30
