Usually such issues may be fixed by removing of auto-removable packages by
sudo apt autoremove
and then launching Aptitude in interactive mode by
and then hitting F10, Actions → Cancel pending actions, then g to ensure that all is well.
To install/reinstall the Ubuntu Update Manager ("Software Updater")
Tested on Ubuntu 18.04:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install update-manager
You'll now see this "Software Updater" icon when you press the Windows key and then search for "updater":
And this .desktop file will now be created: "/usr/share/applications/update-...
This version number is not from Ubuntu itself, but from one of its packages. They have the ubuntu name in it as they are specifically built for Ubuntu possibly with backports.
Actually, this seems to be systemd.
Current version in repos is 245.4-4ubuntu3.11, so you could just run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y after you started your container ...
Both problems, installation and running of signal-desktop as well as apt-get functionality returning this error, come from unexpected content in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list. (In my case this was introduced when trying to install the beta version of signal-desktop).
I would simply remove the apt file in question:
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/...
There is no "official" development platform or setup for Ubuntu. Use what works best for you. If you name a common programming language or IDE, somebody develops for Linux using it. Use any platform or setup that you like, though you may find that developing your first hello-world application on Ubuntu makes your software easier to test.
There are ...
If your app is accepted / added by Snap, i.e. you can type:
sudo snap install --options myappname
...in order to install your app, it will be in the "Snap store/Software Center". They are one and the same.
To add an application to the software center(s) it needs to be a .deb package, first of all. In order for it to be properly ...
Instead of force-installing deprecated Python2 packages, you could go forward with a Python3 fork of FAHControl (see this discussion), which works fine for me. The Readme describes as precondition:
apt install python3-stdeb python3-gi python3-all python3-six debhelper dh-python gir1.2-gtk-3.0
I reduced this quite a bit, as not all packages are needed (e.g. ...
The mimeapps.list file contents and locations are specified by the XDG MIME Applications Associations Specification. Version 1.0.1 specifies the lookup order as:
user overrides, desktop-specific (for advanced users)

Wanted to know which is the way to get it with the latest stable changes?
I would say it's your call. Both are maintained by Microsoft developers and are updated simultaneously.
I usually install via apt, but snap is listed first here, is there any advantage?
The definition of advantage varies from user to user. But this might answer your question, If a ...
If you install with snap, you can add the flag --channel=edge, or just --edge, to get the newest release. The reason it isn't available by default is because it hasn't been tested enough to be considered "stable" by Snap. That doesn't mean it hasn't been tested by the application developers.
In my experience, The edge release is usually the same ...
You probably have misspelled the software name. It is shipped as Snap and named
Coq Interactive Theorem Prover - coq-prover.
This Snap seems to be really broken in terms of broken launcher file.
So you have two options:
manually create a launcher to file named /snap/bin/coqide and continue to use this Snap version of application.
remove this broken Snap ...
You can manually download and install xfce4-screenshooter 1.98 from the default Ubuntu 21.10 repositories in Ubuntu 21.04. Open the terminal and type:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install ./xfce4-screenshooter/xfce4-screenshooter_1.9.8-1_amd64.deb
Ultimately I got it working on 16.04 using a solution I found in this thread.
Try to run the following in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install python-distutils-extra
Per the user who provided this answer, it would seem that python3-distutils ends up installed as a dependency of distutils-extra, though why this method works where other methods failed for me isn'...
From wickr support: If you are having trouble opening Wickr on your Linux device, please check your processor for AVX and AVX2 support by opening a Terminal window and typing in:
grep ^flags /proc/cpuinfo | sort -u | cut -f 2 -d: | sed -e 's/ /\n/g' | grep avx
This should list both if you have AVX and AVX2 support on this processor.
Alternatively, you can ...
My usual answer to this question is that on Ubuntu, generally if you're trying to do something that requires the terminal, what you're trying to do actually just is complicated and technical, and would be equally hard on Windows. For example, if you run into computer trouble, and the solution online says to do something in the terminal, the reason is because ...
If you just want to run a program in Ubuntu, it is no harder than it is in windows -- you can just open the executable.
If you want to install, it can be as easy as using the graphical software installer if it is in the repos, or double clicking on the .deb file you download from the software author. However, some people think all that command line stuff ...
You "switched the shell to bash", but you don't say how. Did you just run bash as a subshell, or did you really change your shell using chsh? It sounds like the former, given the fact that it is still complaining that your shell is fish.
Try chsh -s /usr/bin/bash, then log out completely and log back in before trying the script again. If that ...
If you need, for example, to automatically switch to Java 8 (compiler 1.8), in an one-liner, for example for a script or continuous integration test suite, you can run
sudo update-java-alternatives -s $(sudo update-java-alternatives -l | grep 8 | cut -d " " -f1) || echo '.'
It will automatically fetch any java 8 version available and set it using ...
Sounds like the script does not have the right permissions to run in or access the /home/test/searx folder. Can you check permissions/owners with
ls -Al /home/test/searx
You may want to make sure you're running it with sudo like the docs specify also.
Close synaptic package manager, and the "sudo apt install" command will automatically continue.
You cannot have two different applications that work with the APT package management system open at the same time.
Yes, I very frequently see the same messages as you ;)
First download the waterfox .tar file from https://www.waterfox.net/download/.
Then move it to a secured folder from the downloads folder. Then extract it there.

If you find it, then click on it and click on "internet". Then click on "New item". Then set a name for ...
Ok. I finally seem to have this working. :) The terminal is still throwing a few errors after running winecfg but it seems to actually be installed and install and run my windows programs now. The current stable version is 6.0.1. On Ubuntu 20.04, the correct install procedure is reasonably involved and is as follows:
You must uninstall wine and all other ...
To create/recreate/update the initramfs file means to update the initrd.img-* ramdisk files in /boot.
Here's a listing of my /boot. Note the size/date of the initrd.img-* files. One or more of these need updating in your case.
~$ ls -al /boot

The update-initramfs script manages your initramfs images on your lo‐
cal box. It keeps track of the existing initramfs archives in /boot.
There are three modes of operation create, update or delete. You must

The initramfs is a gzipped cpio archive. At boot time, the kernel ...
is it just not compatible with ubuntu 20.04?
It is compatible with Ubuntu 20.04. You can have a working wine install on Ubuntu 20.04 as evidenced by these screenshots.
This shows wine 5.0 running on a 20.04 Ubuntu MATE system.
This shows the reason for the wine install, an old Windows birding app running under wine.
To install wine on this system, I ...
I can't tell you why your compiled version is not working. Using the Ubuntu repo, you can get what you want and will get updated with the rest of the system:
sudo apt install python3.9 python3.9-venv
this will give you pip3.9 and the ability to create a virtual environment, something like this:
python3.9 -m venv $HOME/.venv/python3.9
The pyrit package was last available for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS at version 0.4.0. You can install by manual package download:

The best way I found to use snap, because it has later version than ubuntu repos.

The most common situation is when you want to install the latest version of git, but your Operating System's repositories are not updated. For example, in my case I have a laptop running Ubuntu 20.04, and when I executed the command sudo apt install git the installed version was 2.25.1; instead of 2.32.0 which is the current version at git-scm.com.
How can I ...
Took a while to figure out, but I found the solution at least in my particular case.
When checking my python version I get this:
Command 'python' not found, did you mean:
command 'python3' from deb python3
command 'python' from deb python-is-python3
I know i have python2 and python3 installed, but it's not showing up in /usr/bin/...
First, make sure the installation was done correctly by running java --version, you should see something like:
Then, in order to locate the jdk folder, run the command below:
readlink -f $(which java)
It returns the path, in my case it returns:
you can run ls /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64 and it will show ...

Had the same issue on Ubuntu 21.04. I've installed snapcraft.io version from Software Center.
The only solution I've found for now - install ubuntu-hirsute-universe version from Software Center or via terminal. It works good.
