I started using linux yesterday and I'm trying to get a feel for the operating system. I've recently tried to download and install google chrome but upon launch I get this error:
Error: /etc/machine-id contains 0 characters (32 were expected).
To solve this I tried to create a symlink to my machine-id using the following: ln -s /var/lib/dbus/machine-id /etc/machine-id but this results in this error:
ln: failed to create symbolic link '/etc/machine-id': File exists
I've tried unlinking and reinstating the link using sudo commands but get the same error. I've also seen others posts saying it may be due to the ordering of my symlink but I believe I've done that correctly.
Can someone help please?
