I recieve an error (red box with white exclamation mark) that states, "A problem occurred when checking for the updates."

When I show the updates, it states that my software is already up to date.

I have tried

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

already (and various other commands) stated within the forum to related issues.

Any advice on how to remove the notification?

When I input sudo apt-get install -f The output is

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.

Again, with sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade; sudo apt-get install -f

  • Edit your question and add the output of sudo apt-get install -f – A.B. Oct 31 '15 at 20:16

    Run sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, post the output here: paste.ubuntu.com and give me the link. – A.B. Oct 31 '15 at 20:19
  • dist-upgrade will fix the problem. Output is not needed. It happens to pipelight, etc. – Pilot6 Oct 31 '15 at 20:20
  • @A.B. paste.ubuntu.com/13043548, and now 0 not upgraded for the latter command. However, the error seemingly persists. – hm27 Oct 31 '15 at 20:25
