I don't know of a general way to flash HP consumer machine firmware directly from Linux, but as a second-best, it is at least possible on the machine that I needed to update (an HP Envy 700-060ea) without the use of Windows (e.g. with only Linux installed on the machine). First I extracted the HP softpaq: wine Downloads/sp72302.exe /e /f z:hpbios ... and ...

I was facing the same error on WSL2 Ubuntu and tried to install ca-certificates with no luck, as it was already installed. Then I updated /etc/apt/sources.list to use the global servers, updated Apt, and now it works. After upgrading, I saw some updates were made in the /etc/ssl/certs directory; new certificates. Out of curiosity, I changed sources.list file ...

That package, vulkan-utils does not exist in any of the supported release. You probably want vulkan-tools instead, which is in the repositories, and ... Description-en: Miscellaneous Vulkan utilities This package provides utilities for Vulkan, including vulkaninfo.

Supporting this question - since the OP tries to run his old hardware on a current Linux I'd like to mention that an old NVIDIA driver (which needs to be used by that hardware) does not necessarily work with the actual kernel. The question has been asked and answered here already and should be taken into consideration. You need to remove the "modern&...

Simple. Some times you'll go to /etc/apt/sources.list and wont find the repository that's misbehaving. Solution is to use -r like so..

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS was released in 2020-April with 5 years of standard support; followed by a further 5 years of extended support (once you enable ESM), so you're asking for something that will work in 2030-May? The ESM currently cannot be setup; so you can't currently arrange the second 5 years of support - let alone whatever occurs between 2025 and 2030. ...

The Ubuntu Wiki will give you this What is Firmware? Many devices have two essential software pieces that make them function in your operating system. The first is a working driver, which is the software that lets your system talk to the hardware. The second is firmware, which is usually a small piece of code that is uploaded directly to the device for it ...

The error you are encountering is correct and expected behavior. You are attempting to release-upgrade to a release that is already past End Of Life (July 2021); those repositories were withdrawn. There is no constant, tested migration/upgrade path from an LTS release to a non-LTS release. When the calendar is unfortunate (like now) the tested and supported ...

APT relies on fcntl(2) locking; since ubuntu does not provide an fcntl lock command, you may use fcntl-lock utility for locking (a clone of Peter Anvin's flock command, slightly outdated, though). #!/bin/bash apt_cache=/var/cache/apt/archives # Link: https://github.com/magnumripper/fcntl-lock # fcntl-lock is a fcntl() clone of H.

I was getting this report in the PlayOnLinux debugger. I ended up switching to the recommended Nvidia driver and then uninstalling the default graphics driver. I then reinstalled the Nvidia graphics drivers through Synaptic Package Manager and that stopped the madness. I don't know how the inner workings of the library linking is established but the Nvidia ...

First, excuse me if I am making a wrong assumptions here. I assume you have Thunderbird 78 installed via the Ubuntu package manager and you want to upgrade to Thunderbird 91. There are, at least, five ways, in principle: Remove the apt version, and install the Thunderbird 91 snap, by choosing the "candidate" channel instead of "stable". ...

Warning: doing things below is dangerous if you care about system security. Proceed only if you are sure what do you want to achieve. So you have to remove meta-package (it usually depends on the latest kernel, nowadays it is 5.4.0-86 in this HWE stack) by sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get remove linux-image-generic-hwe-18.04 sudo apt-get autoremove and then ...

Your process is working well. There is nothing wrong with it at all.
