I keep geting this error when I run the update manager. Can anyone help me debug this?

Stopping ADB server failed (code -1). Unable to run 'adb': Cannot run program "/home/lightning0/Android/adt-bundle-linux-x86_64-20130729/sdk/platform-tools/adb": error=2, No such file or directory. Starting ADB server failed (code -1).

ls -l /home/lightning0/Android/adt-bundle-linux-x86_64-20130729/sdk/platform-tools/ad‌‌​​b: No such file or directory

The answer is simple, the file/directory do not exist where you say it does. Review the configuration files or how you are invoking the program and point to the right file.

  • I can prove that the file exists, plus.google.com/106691702488567678641/posts/78hAVCcszgz how do i point the file to the correct directory?
