1. Did do.release unattended. Worked perfectly. 2. Attempted apt-get update and it requested that I do dpkg --configure -a which worked. 3. Then it said it would take effect after reboot so I rebooted. 4. Upon reboot it has no USB, Wifi USB, Wifi card, or ethernet support. ifconfig shows no adapters. lsusb finds the adapters and identifies everything properly. But they do not appear anywhere else. Only my phone connects via USB and is discoverable. At times the CLI says I have 491 updates to do but I can't since I'm offline. So far trying to install offline options have failed. I just need to get it online to do the updates. I am able to run the Live CD and everything works but I don't know how to update the hard drive that way.

Probably undrelated, but it also now has the "login loop" problem which I can defeat through Ctrl+Alt+F1 and run startx.


I had a similar issue when installing 15.10 server (no GUI). This has to do with Ubuntu not recognizing your network card. I found several LENGTHY links which should help you set it up. I am not a professional, I am just an amateur so I apologize if this information is old for you.

  • Thank you. So far no luck. Cannot find device "wlan0". Error getting hardware address for "wlan0" : no such device. Failed to bring up wlan0. – Darris J. Brock Dec 16 '15 at 20:08
