Software :: Grub Fails To Update After A Disk Change?

Dec 20, 2008

I'm using Debian 4.0 Etch (AMD64) with some programs from the testing area. It was installed on a IDE hard disk, and the troubles started when I changed the disk to a SATA one.My system had two hard disks (hda and hdb) and two optical drives (hdc and hdd).Now, the hard drives are sda and hda, and the optical drives remains as hdc and hdd.After the disk change, it didn't work because all references in menu.lst were still pointing at hda. I changed to sda and everything works fine... until next kernel update.Every time the kernel is updated, grub changes all references to hda, so Linux don't boot until I edit menu.lst. I've also changed /boot/grub/device.map, but it doesn't work.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Lucid Update Manager Fails To Update - Now 64 Days Out Of Date?

Jul 4, 2010

I am trying to update using Update Manager and I get this message: Failed to fetch "Failed to fetch [URL]..404 Not Found" My system is 64 days out of date now.

I have looked elsewhere for an answer and some others have had similar problems, but I have not found a reason for it happening, nor an answer. I wonder if anyone can help me please. I have been using Ubuntu for several months, can use the Terminal if I have the right commands to issue, but beyond that have limited knowledge of the system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Doesn't Find Update?

Apr 20, 2011

Normally Update Manager always finds the update to the next version of Ubuntu. It still hasn't given me any notion whatoever. I allready changed the settings from regular to LTS, but nothing changes. There are updates to the kernel, but I cannot download them, so I'm kinda stuck here.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Fails To Boot With 'No Such Disk' Error

Jul 18, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu Server V9.10 (64-bit) on a brand new server I built with no previous OS installed. The drives are two Hitachi 1 Tbyte hdd's configured as RAID1, an ASUS M4A78T-E motherboard with an AMD Phenom-II cpu with 8 Gbyte of memory. I updated the bios following building the computer. The Ubuntu 9.10 server installation appears to go without error. However, on reboot I get the message:

Grub loading
error: no such disk
grub rescue

I suspect the MBR is missing or Linux is not pointing to the correct drive in the grub.cfg.I've made sure the boot order is correct, but other than that I don't really know the commands or syntax to troubleshoot this problem. The only CD I have is the Ubuntu 9.10 server ISO I downloaded and burned to dvd.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Fails To See Hard Disk ?

Feb 7, 2010

The Install program is failing to see the hard disk!

Now heres the really weird bit. The live cd can see the drive just fine.

I have created partitions using gparted and the disktool also sees the drive just fine but as soon as I go back to the installer it shows no hard disk!

It's a SATA drive which I suspect might be a part of the problem.

Is there a way I can install without the install program?

Is there a way to make the install program see the drive?

This is ubuntu 9.10 desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04.1 Install Fails To Boot - Out Of Disk Error

Downloaded Ubuntu 10.04.1 Desktop AMD64, tried to install it to a cleand HDD using the whole HDD, i.e. gave it permission to use the whole HDD. Installation process appeared to run OK but when it came to the restart it just fired up the message
error: out of disk

I've searched this forum and found numerous references to these error messages but cannot make head nor tail of the diagnostic suggestions. Apart from anything else they suggest strings of command lines which I don't understand and can't enter anyway since they don't correspond to my keyboard layout (if I hit > or ) something completely different appears on the screen). Is there someone here who can provide a step-by-step solution in lay language? Or is there such a thing as a bootable file which can be downloaded and inserted into my CD drive to correct this problem?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Always Fails

The Live CD worked fine as did an install to the HD, but I get a message from Update manager that there are updates that need to be applied and these always fail. I've tried selecting different ones in case it is just a particular update, but nothing has updated.

The error message is below

Debian Installation :: USB Installation Fails To Find An Installation Iso Image

Aug 15, 2010

I have installed Debian maybe 30 times over the years since about 2003, stable, testing and Sid on two different desktops and two different laptops. The only problem I have ever had is sometimes with a flaky daily build. It is one of my favorite distros.

BUT, I am totally frustrated is trying to install to a USB. I have followed the manual step by step about 6 times in the past two weeks. The result is always the same. The installation fails to find an installation iso image. Yes, I know the iso image and the hd-media vmlinuz and initrd.gz files are supposed to be the same version.

File: debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso from: [url]

Files: vmlinuz and initrd.gz from: [url]

The USB boots to a Language selection screen and proceeds through the Keyboard selection screen with no problems.

The next step which searches for an installation iso image fails.

Skipping that step and trying to load installer components from iso image also fails.

Searching the entire PC for an installation iso image also fails. (I even copied the netinst iso image to the HD root directory.)

Debian Installation :: 'Squeeze' AMD64 Installer Fails To Detect Hard Disk

Apr 20, 2011

Having trouble installing 'Squeeze' 6.0.1a-amd64-netinst on a new AMD64 system.The installer boots and runs fine until it gets to hard disk detection. Then it hangs for about 20 minutes showing a blue screen, during which time the HDD-activity light flickers every 5 seconds. Eventually it says it can't detect a hard disk, and displays a (longish) list of possible drivers; no idea which, if any, would suit.Anyone else installed (successfully or otherwise) on this combo?

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Fails: Can't Find Root Device + Drop To Shell

Dec 27, 2010

From one day to the other my system stopped booting properly. Since I (finally) fixed it, I wanted to share my solution. It runs on a fakeraid pair of SSD's of 60 GB each (actually a single Revodrive device, but it shows up as two devices). When Ubuntu 10.10 boots, I'm dropped to a shell.During boot, when I removed "silent splash" from the kernel's command line, I got these messages:

Code:

[ 4.960240] scsi 6:0:0:0: Direct-Access ATA OCZ-REVODRIVE 1.20 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
[ 4.960425] sd 6:0:0:0: [sdg] 117231408 512-byte logical blocks: (60.0 GB/55.8 GiB)

[cod]....

I doubt that this is what was needed (as I had that already when it didn't work, but I might be required in addition to installing dmraid)

# update-initramfs -a

After installing this, the problem was solved!! This is strange since I don't recall uninstalling this package or changing anything important, for that matter (perhaps did apt-get upgrade, but that's about it!). [URL]

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 8.10 Intrepid To 9.04 Jaunty With Update Manager Fails

Feb 11, 2010

I had an old machine running Feisty.I followed the EOL guides and upgraded from 7.04 => 7.10 => 8.04 => 8.10 (intrepid).Now that I'm at intrepid, I want to use the update manager to upgrade to 9.04 (Jaunty). Whenever I launch update manager (System->Administration->Update Manager) everything looks fine until I choose "New distribution release '9.04' is available" and click the Upgrade button.

At this point, Update Manager complains and says "Could not find the release notes" "The server may be overloaded". I'm assuming this could be a faulty URL somewhere, but I wouldn't know where. My sources.list seems to work fine for regular intrepid updates, so not sure there would be anything there that could be the fault. Once I get this error, I can only click "close".

Extracting the upgrade failed. There may be a problem with the network or with the server. Obviously, my general networking is fine (or I wouldn't be able to post this message)..and again, standard updates work fine.Any insight into what is causing this (or maybe how Update Manager works so that I might try a bit of debugging myself?

Debian Installation :: Package Updater Fails After Update To V8.0

Apr 27, 2015

After Updating to version 8.0 today...

Package Updater GUI is Failing with the message:

No updates are available
No network connection was detected.
=================================

I did updates almost daily on wheezy

Todays updates [via the Pkg Updater GUI] were over 300 meg.
After the updates and reboot
System was showing version 8.0 in the GUI desktop and using 'cat /etc/debian_version'

Then...
From terminal I did ...

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

The dist-upgrade was over 40 minute and ~ 500meg

Things seemed to go well.

I updated sources.list with apt-spy.

[In order to trouble-shoot: I subsequently commented-out the apt-spy sources and found some generic sources on internet]

==========================================
# sources.list generated by apt-spy v3.2.2
#
# Generated using:

apt-get and Synaptic GUI both work.

I did/reviewed some settings in the Synaptic GUI I imported two v8 signing keys into Synaptic from [URL]
