I was trying to install Gnome 3.10 in my Ubuntu 13.10..

I Entered the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-next && sudo apt-get update

then:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-next && sudo apt-get update

after some time when installation reached 60% it showed:

Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

when I type apt-get update, it displays:

E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock directory /var/lib/apt/lists/
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

and fix-missing: command not found

what to do?

  • You should specify in your question everything what you tried. – Radu Rădeanu Jan 18 '14 at 13:14
  • Do you currently have a version of Gnome installed? – Wilf Jan 18 '14 at 13:38

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gnome-shell ubuntu-gnome-desktop
