Debian Installation :: Aptitude Safe Upgrade Not Installing Anything

Dec 29, 2010

I am running squeeze. I ran aptitude update and then safe-upgrade. The system detects 104 conflicts and then installs nothing, with no other messages. What can the problem be?

sudo aptitude safe-upgrade Resolving dependencies. open: 794300; closed: 315857; defer: 133767; conflict: 104

Debian Installation :: Packages (Security Sensitive) In Aptitude Safe Upgrade?

Feb 17, 2011

Today I ran
aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade
Like I regularly do, and I see these two packages need to be upgraded:
login passwd

Since these packages seem kinda security-sensitive I would like to know exactly why I would need to upgrade them. I checked Debian's security list but couldn't find anything relevant, and the links to the changelog for both packages are broken:
The requested URL /changelogs/pool/main/s/shadow/shadow_4.1.4.2+svn3283-2+squeeze1/changelog was not found on this server.
Where can I see what is changed in these packages so I can safely upgrade?

KDE 4.3 squeeze-SID
I've got a strange problem with my last "aptitude safe-upgrade". It had removed all my kde 4.3 and packages I have installed, I don't know why!

Debian :: Aptitude Safe Upgrade - Untrusted Packages

Jul 4, 2010

I am new to Debian (just used Gentoo until now), I run a little server for our company and clients. Unfortunately our hosting company switched us from a Gentoo system to a Debian Lenny box with Confixx and stopped maintaining it. So I will need to do the house keeping, which worries me a bit. Today I started and ran: aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade and got a huge list with packages to upgrade. Unfortunately, I am not confident, if I will break something upgrading (Confixx, apache) as I get the following warning message:

WARNING: untrusted versions of the following packages will be installed!
Untrusted packages could compromise your system's security.
You should only proceed with the installation if you are certain that this is what you want to do.
mysql-client mysql-server-5.1 mysql-client-5.1 mysql-common mysql-server-core-5.1 mysql-server libmysqlclient16
Do you want to ignore this warning and proceed anyway?
Is it safe to ignore it and upgrade the needed packages?

Debian :: Install Backports With Aptitude Safe Upgrade?

Oct 18, 2010

I see that the backports now is officiel. My question is rather simpel: Is it possible to upgrade with (and how to) the backported packages without to much work? Is is needed to install all backported packages individually? I want to upgrade to any backported package with the command:

apitutude safe-upgrade - if it is possible.

Debian :: Name Of Package That Prints Ncurses Style Dialogs During 'aptitude Safe-upgrade'

Mar 1, 2010

I'm running Debian squeeze and my packages are all up to date. I usually do my updates by typing 'aptitude update' and 'aptitude safe-upgrade' at the command line as root.Sometimes when doing regular updates aptitude, or the package that's being updated, shows a ncurses-style dialog box on the screen, usually to have the user 'OK' a change, or to select which version of a configuration file to keep. Recently I've found these dialog boxes to be slightly messed up... in that the spot at the bottom where I would expect the 'OK' button to be is replaced by nonsensical characters.

There seems to be no problem with the way that the program functions, as I can press the tab key and then the return key, or just the return key alone, and the dialog goes away, seemingly doing it's job. But I would like to know what this program is. It's likely been updated recently, but looking through /var/log/aptitude and /var/log/aptitude.1.gz I cannot figure out which one it is. I'd like to file a bug report, or simply be able to follow the progress of someone else's bug. That's all.

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Reinstall Mysql-server After Power Failure During Aptitude Safe-upgrade

Jun 2, 2010

A week or so ago I ran an aptitude safe-upgrade and while it was updating mysql I suffered a power-failure. Now, this never really happens in Holland but of course this once it happened at the worst possible time.

I've tried a lot of different things to get mysql working again, but am running into all kinds of problems. First mysql won't shut off properly (it does startup with the computer but I can't connect to it at all) during an aptitude purge. If I kill the process mysql seems to purge properly, but I guess this is not the case because I wasn't able to install it then.

Things seem to have gone a bit more smoothly this time, however:

Code:
snek@snek-server:~$ sudo aptitude install mysql-server
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade My System Through Aptitude - Apt-get *

Sep 1, 2010

I'm currently experiencing a problem when trying to upgrade my system through aptitude (apt-get *). I can install programs, but whenever it tries do anything with the kernel I get this error:

E: linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2

This started about a month ago when I was trying to install some upgrade (with apt) which stalled and I unknowingly shut down the comp while it was running.

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe To Upgrade From 9.04 To 9.10?

Jan 17, 2010

I read some of the thing under thread about ubuntu not working after update to 9.10, mainly connected with nvidia etc. This all seems rather complex for someone with only small experience. The Q is : is it safe today (bugs fixed?) to update from 9.04 to 9.10 simply via the update manager? Or will I have definitely no running system then and will need lot of special work to be done on drivers etc? My system is a dell dimension 4550, nvidia GeForce4 Ti4200. Or is the upgrade to 9.10 to dangerous still?

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe To Upgrade To 10.04?

Jun 12, 2010

About 3-4 weeks ago, I tried upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 several times, using all of the methods. However, every single one of them had a bug; a black screen, completely blank. I saw other people had this problem and did everything others suggested, but yet I still got that black screen. So I decided to wait a few weeks and see if most of the bugs have been fixed. So is it safe to upgrade now?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Fails To Boot After Aptitude Full-upgrade

May 12, 2010

I run "aptitude update;aptitude full-upgrade" today, then I updated /etc/default/grub changing only the default boot line number, and I dully run update-grub, with no error messages. Now Kubuntu will not boot. The new kernel 2.6.32-22 is in the boot menu. When I turn the computer on, a blinking cursor appears on top line, column 8, and after a few seconds this cursor disappears and the screen is blank - my monitor indicates no video signal.

The failsafe 2.6.32-22 grub line does not boot either. I tried pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1, Ctrl-Alt-F2 etc. up to Ctrl-Alt-F10 to get to a text mode login prompt, but the screen remains blank and my monitor indicates no video signal. The workaround is to boot to kernel 2.6.32-21. The machine is Athlon XP, 2GB RAM, ATI Radeon 9600

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe To Upgrade To Thunderbird 3.1 Yet? (Lucid)

Jul 16, 2010

I notice the repository Thunderbird version is 3.0.5 but 3.1 is already released. I'm on 3.0.4 and it took me forever to find a compatible version of the Lightning extension, which I really need.Now I am afraid to upgrade to anything older than 3.1 because it might break Lightning, and I'm afraid to upgrade to 3.1 because maybe there's a reason it's not in the official repository yet (and because who knows if the latest version of Lightning really is compatible with the latest version of Thunderbird). My question is, is anybody out there currently running Thunderbird 3.1 with the Lightning extension on Kubuntu or Ubuntu 10.04, AMD64? Have you found it to be stable?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Upgrade Safe On Setup With Packages?

Apr 28, 2011

I want to upgrade to 11.04 but I'm extremely scared of breaking my installation. First of all, I have all that experimental Compiz bling installed, does it break anything with Natty's Compiz? It obviously won't work because Natty uses 0.9 while Maverick uses 0.8, but I don't want any dummy plugins or anything. Also, these plugins are way too cool to miss (I just installed them and now I can't live without the extra eye-candy). And what's with my awkward startup settings? I have a compiz --replace --loose-binding command in there and many disabled docks that, in KDE, all launch simultaneously (including Compiz, which renders everything unusable) and completely screw the desktop (I stopped caring about KDE now). Also, my setup feels like my computer's going to blow up any minute while upgrading because of too much dull packages, including gnome-shell which I don't use after all. My computer is, in terms of packages, a complete junkyard! So, is it safe to upgrade with this setup, if yes, tell me the recommended way to do this (CD, update manager?) or if not, how do I scrap that from my updates forever? By the way, will the upgrade also ruin KDE?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing Windows 2nd Will Data Stay Safe?

Mar 8, 2010

I have a 200GB partition where I keep my music, movies, photography, /home backups, and other really important things to make changing linux distros easier. I'm planning on installing 10.04 when it comes out and figure ill do a clean install. I need to install Windows XP for business purposes, and was wondering if I create an NTFS partition in gparted beforehand, will windows simply install to that partition and leave my 200GB data partition alone? (10.04 will be installed afterwards, but i know how not to overwrite when installing that.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe To Use Lubuntu Beta Upgrade To Final

Apr 15, 2010

I'm so excited to see how nicely Lubuntu 10.04 runs on my EeePC. I went ahead and installed it, knowing that it's just the second beta. Everything seems to be going nicely, but when I did a "sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade" it showed there were tons of updates (about 90MB worth). I saw updates for Chrome, the kernel, xserver-xorg, etc. I understand this is just a beta operating system and is not recommended to be used as a primary OS, but I'm just so excited and can't wait. If I stay with this install, and keep updating, would I eventually make my way to the final release? Or would you recommend doing a reinstall with the final image?

Debian Installation :: Aptitude Won't Unhold

Jan 20, 2015

Running testing

There were some grave bugs being showed by listbugs for apt dpkg etc

So ran aptitude hold for these buggy packages and upgraded others

Now unable to 'unhold' dpkg. ie

synaptic shows it as 1.17.13 both installed and latest and no upgradation possible

[URL] .... shows it as 1.17.23

Code: Select all# aptitude dist-upgrade

The following NEW packages will be installed:
dpkg:i386{ab} libbz2-1.0:i386{a} libjpeg62-turbo:i386{a} libsystemd0:i386{a}

some other stuff

Code: Select allThe following packages have unmet dependencies:
 dpkg : Conflicts: dpkg:i386 but 1.17.23 is to be installed.
 dpkg:i386 : Conflicts: dpkg but 1.17.13 is installed.

So I can only conclude that aptitude sees the need to upgrade from .13 to .23 but for some reason it cant 'get out' of the installed dpkg:amd64

I want to download the driver for mi wireless, get openoffice and a bunch of other things, but with this not working, I'm guessing there's not much I can do now... I have the driver of the wireless, which I downloaded before the installation of Debian, and that I now copied to my new Debian desktop, but I cannot open it... it is a tar.gz file. I'm currently connected through wired connection by the way.
