Neither my pen-drives nor my wireless mouse are getting mounted or connected. During startup it shows something about USB 3-7 not accepting address or similar. I checked in DISKS and my pen-drive doesn't show up.

Result of lsusb with plugged-in pen-drive:

    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:8000 Intel Corp. 
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8008 Intel Corp.

It worked. I did a

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get update --fix-missing

then rebooted the system and everything seems to be working properly

Thanks for the help guys!

  • Nice to hear. Note that you can and should accept your own answer. Probably you have to wait for about 2 days or so until that is unlocked, but please do it then. Thanks! :) – Byte Commander Apr 21 '15 at 11:46
  • Yeah i have to wait for 2 days. Will do it then. – B_G Apr 21 '15 at 11:58
