Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 To 10.10 Upgrade - Xorg Broken Packages

Oct 12, 2010

Here is the apt.log from running 'do-release-upgrade'. apt-get upgrade runs without issue and I have disabled all of the extra repos I had (opera, tor, lucid-propsed, chromium). My system is otherwise 100% up to date with apt-get dist-upgrade and apt-get upgrade. I have already purged all of my PPAs using 'ppa-purge', but it looks like there are remnants of xorg-edgers in there somewhere: [URL]

Feb 27, 2011

I have been upgrading 10.4 to 10.10, but in the middle of the new package download my computer turned off (outage). Now Ubuntu won't restart the upgrade or install the packages already downloaded; it tells me it "Could not determine the upgrade" and that unresolvable problems occurred, caused by held packages. How can I reset things to restart the upgrade?

Ubuntu :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 Fails - Broken Packages

Oct 12, 2010

I was updating from 10.04 to 10.10 (was updating through update manager) after some time I got following message:

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

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 bug report. When I tried to run the command

ubuntu-bug update-manager
as above message says I got error

The problem cannot be reported:
This is not a genuine Ubuntu package

Following are the files in /etc/apts/sources.list
Then there are some files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d
their contents are
lucid-partner.list ---->http://paste.ubuntu.com/511417/
medibuntu.list.distUpgrade---- ------->http://paste.ubuntu.com/511422/

What should I be checking now?

Ubuntu Installation :: Broken Packages In Synaptic

May 7, 2010

During my recent upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04, I got a few error messages concerning the flashplugin-nonfree not installing correctly. A user named carlee helped me get flash working over on the absolute beginner forum, but I've got a related problem still unresolved.Update manager is convinced that my perfectly working flash installation is broken, and insists I update it.However, the update fails every time, telling me E: flashplugin-nonfree: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal.

Opening synaptic, I cannot select the reinstall option for the plugin. Removal and complete removal are my only options, and both give the above error. More problematic, I cannot de-select the flash plugin entirely. It MUST be part of any other package update through synaptic (if I wanted to re-install avant window navigator, for example). And since the flash removal operation fails, synaptic is effectively non-operational.How can I convince my update manager that my fully operational flash is just fine the way it is?

Ubuntu Installation :: OpenOffice And QuickStarter - Broken Packages

Feb 5, 2011

Update Manager tells me it has updates. So I close what I am doing with VirtualBox and a Windows Client and I tell the Update Manager to go ahead. But it stops, says I've got OpenOffice and QuickStarter both running. Not so, at last not to my knowledge. I try again, and it tells me I have a broken package, and to use the 'Broken' filter to find it. Where is the 'Broken' filter? And even if I work that out, what should I do about a "broken" package? So I look online. Only references to "Broken" packages are with respect to Windows. Windows is a shut down client, and VirtualBox has been shut down.

So I try the recovery mode on a reboot. This reports I have 15 broken packages, all to do with OpenOffice. I select Fix Broken Packages, and it keep stopping to tell me that OpenOffice and QuickStarter are both running, and I need to deal with that. How? A restart and effort to fix broken packages did no good. I look online again, and this time I run down where someone writes you can follow a link, and what you get there will do the trick. Only the link goes nowhere, so it has been moved or deleted.

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Broken Packages Only Without Affecting Others?

Jun 3, 2011

I was installing some packages using the generate download script in synaptic and 'sudo dpkg -i -R ...' because I don't have my own internet connection at home but somewhere else. I think I got carried away a little and installed some packages that have some dependency issues. Now I have three broken packages that need to be removed, but I don't want them to affect (remove) other packages which would be marked whenever I try to mark them for removal, for fear that their removal might affect other functions. I think my machine was just fine before I started to fumble with individual dependencies; that's why I don't what the other dependencies removed. My question is how do I remove those dependencies only using the terminal without removing the others?

Debian Installation :: Mixed Wheezy With Sid Now Have Broken Packages

May 6, 2015

Without knowing the consequences I added the Sid repository to Wheezy (installed version) in order to install some software. Only much later I discovered that this generated me some mess which does not allow now to install additional software due to library conflicts.

I tried to install some packages needed to build the PhantomJS but here is what I got:

Code: Select allReading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
build-essential is already the newest version.
g++ is already the newest version.
g++ set to manually installed.

[Code] ....

Is there a way to clean up the mess that Sid introduced and revert back to the Wheezy versions?

I have an old backup, so it would take me much more time to reinstall/reconfigure certain software, so I am looking to alternatives.

Is there a way to check all the packages and find all the potential conflicts and then a way to restore the original Wheezy content?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrades Held Back - Two Packages - Grayed Out And Do Not Upgrade In Upgrade-manager

I'm running 10.04 and for several days now I get two packages that are grayed out and do not upgrade in upgrade-manager.

If I use the shell and apt-get I get the following message: The following packages have been kept back: firefox-gnome-support update-manager

The system is functioning well, but these 2 packages just linger as I process probably hundreds of lucid upgraded packages.

Ubuntu Installation :: Resume Upgrade Broken By SSH Disconnection?

Apr 17, 2010

I started an upgrade last night (from Jaunty to Karmic) using a "do-release-upgrade" command on a remote server via ssh. However, this morning, I discovered that the ssh connection between my machine and my server was broken.

I can see that the do-release-upgrade process is still running (well, a giant /usr/bin/dpkg is in the process list) and waiting for a response.

Is there any way I can take control of that session from my current session?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Upgrade - Fails With Broken Dependencies

I've been trying all morning to update from a working 9.10 to 10.04 and unfortunately every time I try it blocks me.

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

* 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 bug report.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 9.10 To 10.04 - Package Command Is Broken?

May 30, 2010

I've only been using Linux for a few days (Specifically - I installed Ubuntu 9.10 last week on my laptop for learning the OS and updated to 10.04 over the weekend). I have searched Google (and found answers) for every problem now except for this new one. I apologise in advance for the length but I wanted to include my own troubleshooting as well.

When I installed and setup Ubuntu Karmic - I added my work software. Autopackage wasn't installed by default so I used terminal's package install <filename> command for the first file - and double clicked on the rest to install.With the OS change I wanted to check to see if these packages would have problems installing on 10.04 (mostly to double check).First I checked my Manage 3rd Party Software to remove them - but all my entries here are blank. (I should have quite a few actually - I've done a lot of installing and downloading in the last few days).I double clicked to re-run them but that failed saying there was a problem with the packages. So I swapped to Terminal and found the following:

When I try to install a software package:

sudo package install "SMART Product Drivers 10.package"
Reply: package: can't open config file /home/test/.mailagent
If I type in just


What's interesting, is checking my Fedora and Debian builds (I've done a lot of learning for only a few days! But I know a ton about grub 1 and 2 now) - I can't see a /home/test/.mailagent file or folder to copy either. The only thing I can think of is I have never setup an email account on my system (I've only been using it for a few days) and maybe the blank Manage 3rd Party Software tab is indicating a different problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB2 Broken After Upgrade To 10.04 - No Signature?

Jul 8, 2010

I took the distribution upgrade from the update manager and can't boot now. Boot into a Live CD (ver. 9.10 - does that matter?), and go through the following steps.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l
Warning: invalid flag 0x0000 of partition table 5 will be corrected by w(rite)
Disk /dev/sda: 750.2 GB, 750156374016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 91201 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000ad56f


Anyone have an idea here? I have searched a lot and have only found a few references to this issue. Does the invalid flag message relate here? The partition is flagged as 'boot'.

Ubuntu Installation :: After Upgrade Broken Unity Instead Of Plasma

Apr 29, 2011

Upgrade of kubuntu to 11.04 from 10.10 using kpackagekit appeared okay, as did the reboot and login from the new panel. Then, instead of seeing my custom background and plasma desktop all I see is the color wash of the Unity background. There is a right button menu in this desktop with a Create Launcher option that allows me to make launchers for konsole, firefox, and ksystemlog. Windows come up, but with Unity window decorations. Sure enough unity-window-decorator is running, but there is no plasma. System logs don't reveal anything obvious that failed. There is a kdm process running and kdeinit4 appears to have tried to start klauncher and kde4, but they are not actually running.It seems like somehow GNOME and Unity have somehow collided with the KDE environment.
