Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Cannot Install Db2exc (Unknown Package)

Jan 13, 2011

I just completed a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop 64bit. Everything was pretty much left to defaults. When completed I enabled the partner repositories. Then ran apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. Everything ran perfectly. When I attempted to install db2exc it failed saying it was an unknown package. I ran apt-cache search db2, but nothing came up. Was IBM DB2 Express-C package moved to a different repository or was it removed completely? Maybe a rename? I know I'm not on the up and up about this, but after doing a google search I thought I'd see something. To make sure I haven't lost my mind entirely, I installed Lucid on a test box, fresh installation, and was fully able to do the installation of db2exc.

Ubuntu :: Unknown Package Error On Fresh Install

Sep 4, 2010

Just did a clean install on my desktop of 10.04. Net was working fine, until I installed GIMP and restarted. A little "NO" symbol pops up next to my wireless indicator, and it tells me to either do an apt-get check from terminal or start the package manager to find out what the problem is...so, I do the apt-get check.

Here's what I get returned from the terminal:

E: Unable to write to /var/cache/apt/

E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get Past "unknown User Id (0)" During Install From CD / Fix It?

May 11, 2011

Due to the flaws in 11.04 (Natty) I decided to reinstall earlier 10.10 release. However, when reading the installation CD, I can not get past the following error message code...

I tried also two releases older Lucid (10.04) and I get the same behaviour.

I do not see any reason for this to start to happening now, after I was able to install my previous releases without problems. I upgraded to the problematic Natty release online.

Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Single Package From PPA?

Jan 29, 2010

Is it possible to cherry pick packages from a PPA? The problem I'm having is that I'm getting thunderbird 3 from the ubuntu-mozilla-daily PPA, but by adding that to my sources, it is also upgrading firefox. Is there a way to get thunderbird 3 only and stop it upgrading firefox?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install A Package Without Dependancies?

Nov 16, 2010

I've searched around a bit for the answer to this question and most threads just got the response "Why the heck would you do that!?" so, to clear things up... I have installed VisualBoyAdvanceM via a forced architecture dpkg install to fix a bug vanilla VBA had (I am running 64-bit), and I made a link from where visualboyadvance's executable would usually be to this install, so it's acts the same way as the original program. But when I go to install VBAExpress to get GUI, it want's to install the vanilla VBA overtop of my already-working VBAM.

Ubuntu Installation :: Apt-Get Install / Package Not Found

Sep 1, 2011

Ubuntu Server Edition, 32bit, fresh install today (2011.07.07). Usually the first thing thing I do after a server install, I update, upgrade... then install Emacs to configure services. I can get to it from my other servers and PC's, have an internet connections from that server // so I know things should be okay...

I'm thinking maybe it's a repo problem in my source list... and I'm not sure what repo Emacs is from. I'd like to check this, before doing a reinstall on this. I had just added in the mounts & fstabs on my data RAID arays... Would be more work, but still not too far into it.

Ubuntu Installation :: (Apt-Get) How To Install Package Without Prompting

Sep 1, 2011

When I run 'apt-get install <some_package>' it asks you to enter configuration information for some packages. I'd like to be able to install a list of packages automatically without having to enter any information, ie. an automated installation. I looked in the man page for apt-get, and I was looking for maybe 2 possibilities:

1) Tell it not to require input; I'll download the configuration files later
2) Enter the options in the apt-get command.

I found what _might_ be what's required for option (2), the --option, but I found the instructions for using it not understandable. It says 'The syntax is -o Foo::Bar=bar', but I don't know where to go from there, and I'm not even sure it's relevant to what I want to do. I want to install nslcd, and either sort out the configuration later (I have an ldap config file ready), or enter the ldap configuration along with the apt-get command. At present I have to enter the information interactively, which negates the possibility of an unattended install.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Update On Laptop - Error "Can't Install 'xubuntu-desktop' It Was Impossible To Install A Required Package"

Oct 6, 2010

I downloaded the 6.06 version of xubuntu because i have a laptop that doesnt support high graphics mode, and i wasnt able to figure out how to get it to run in low graphics mode. i figured that i would get a version from a while back, and then update it up to the current version. now, to the problem. I was able to upgrade 6.10, but now it says Ubuntu version 8.04 available, so i tried to update it. it gets most of the way through the part where it says calculating or something like that, and then it says: "Can't install 'xubuntu-desktop' It was impossible to install a required package. Please report this as a bug." with an option that says close at the bottom. when i click close another window pops up that says: Could not calculate the upgrade A unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade. This can be caused by:

* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bugreport. Then the window just closes... anything that i could do to get rid of this problem? EDIT: Is there any way to update directly from an .iso file on the desktop?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install Selected Kernel Package

Mar 15, 2010

I've been trying to install Ubuntu Server on an old server since a couple of days and have been unsuccessful. I've google'd a bit but found no solid solution yet to this problem. Everything goes fine and I'm able to partition my SCSI drives and everything. After the installation starts unpacking and copying files this happens. I have to mention that I'm installing from a USB drive with the following added at the end of the normal install options:

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Install Package - Permissions Error While Using Sudo

Mar 17, 2010

tl;dr - sudo make -> operation not permitted, sudo chown -R 777
* -> operation not permitted on some of the files

I am trying to install a library. Sudo make is getting permission denied on file 1, while using regular make I am getting permission denied on file 2. I have noticed some of the directories in the library are under nobody:nogroup. I tried chown and sudo chown, both didn't work. Sudo chown got permission errors, while chown didn't change ALL the files. (operation not permitted once again) Tried sudo su, and working from there, that also did not work. (permission once again). Using lsattr returned "lsattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device While reading flags on".

Ubuntu Installation :: Package Installer Closes When Trying To Install Libc6?

Jul 22, 2010

I have a laptop which has Xubuntu on a Wubi install. I have no way to connect my laptop to the internet, as I have dial-up on my desktop and my laptop doesn't have a dial-up modem. I need to install "libc6" as a dependency for libc6-dev, but when I double click the .deb (which I transferred using an sd card using my desktop, which has Vista) It shows the window for a couple seconds, and then closes. I already have libc6 installed, but it is an older version.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install From Scratch / Package - Grub Failed

Aug 20, 2010

i tried my first linux installation with Fedora distro. using the live 64 usb boot version, everyhing looked fine. BUT i had issues with WINE so by recommendation, i went with Ubuntu and flushed Fedora. So, technicaly, the install works fine, during the process of installing from the live usb 64 bit 10.4 ubuntu. BUT at the end, when installing GRUB, it just simply failed! thats's a shame for me what i can tell you is the following. (thats what i think is my problem, but i need some expert help tho!)

my motherboard is a ASUS, im using 3 HDD 500GB sata2 drive, configured as a RAID in the bios, strip 0. so it presents to the OS one partition of 1.5 TB. Fedora detected it correctly, and was able to install grub on that now, during the Ubuntu install, i can chose to pick up a partition that was not used on my 1.5 TB ( i reduced my partition to 1TB and allowed 500GB to linux). Windows 7 reside on the first partition. on this disk, partition 1 is a 100MB windows bootmanager. partition 2 is windows 7 itself 1TB.

during the install of ubunto, i tell him to create a / partition, using 480GB as the third partition, and i created a 4th partition as a swap for linux. the install process the information, install the DATA on the third partition... BUT grub, can't !!! it failed... it keep looking for a /dev/sda disk... when installing GRUB, i can chose the drop down, for the 1.5TB disk, and when i press OK, he just simply try again to access /dev/sda disk... which is full of course and within a BIOS raid..........

Ubuntu Installation :: Find A Version The Entire Package AND Install?

No matter how I try, or how many sources I go to, every instance of open office gives me an error message saying that the JRE (Java) file is corrupt. I cannot find an instance of Open Office I can download regardless of the version. I have no Open Office now. How can I find a version that will give me the entire package AND install? I've had a lot of trouble getting any version to install...but that may be due to the corruption of the JRE file
