Ubuntu Installation :: Certain Programs Fail To Run After Upgrade?
May 3, 2010
I have a laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 and also two dual boot desktop machines, both running Windows XP and Ubuntu. I have upgraded one of the desktops to Ubuntu 10.04 and since doing so Thunderbird will not run on the laptop or the desktop. On clicking the launcher there are signs of activity for a few seconds and then they stop and Thunderbird fails to open. Also there is no longer any sound on the desktop that I have upgraded. I am reluctant now to upgrade the remaining desktop in case I have the same problems
how to get Thunderbird running again, please. I have already spent a week unsuccessfully trying to get the sound working and have abandoned it, but I would like Thunderbird to start running again.
Fail the upgrading... Could not calculate the upgrade An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: The package 'update-manager-kde' is marked for removal but it is in the removal blacklist.
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.
After upgrading to 10.4, Eclipse started showing the the following error:
Failed to load JavaHL Library. These are the errors that were encountered: no libsvnjavahl-1 in java.library.path no svnjavahl-1 in java.library.path no svnjavahl in java.library.path java.library.path = /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-184.108.40.206/jre/lib/i386/client:/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-220.127.116.11/jre/lib/i386:/usr/lib/xulrunner-18.104.22.168:/usr/lib/xulrunner-22.214.171.124:/usr/java/packages/lib/i386:/lib:/usr/lib

The other evening I was in the lengthy process of upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 to version 10.04. It had downloaded all the packages and was in the process of upgrading when a thunderstorm blew in. The power failed momentarily. The system crashed and the installation did not complete.
The system is dual boot to Windows XP. From GRUB when I try to boot Ubuntu the display goes dark, after a few seconds of the white Ubuntu logo. If I hit ENTER I get a flashing Cursor. I can boot to System Restore and get the Recovery Menu. I don't know if there is something I can do from there to repair/finish my upgrade, or even revert to version 9, when I could restart the upgrade.
Can I burn a Live CD for version 10.04 and finish the upgrade? This would salvage the settings, printer drivers, and other programs that I have installed. If I have to make a brand new installation I have to rebuild all of the things I spent many hours getting setup.
I need to determine which package is causing every upgrade installation or removal of software to fail in Ubuntu 10.04 I have had a problem since allowing some non-supported upgrades (not certain what they were for) in 9.10 (FAIL!) I hoped that upgrade to 10.04 would resolve the issue (I know FAIL again!). I am guessing I can;
a) Remove the offending package b) Repair the missing/damaged 10.04 files c) replace the 10.04 OS
I am running a dual boot one drive system with XP and Ubuntu each in their own partition and a 3rd partition where data resides
I wanted to upgrade qbittorrent to the newest version. So I went to the official website and followed the steps of typing some commands in the terminal. However, it said missing libtorrent-rasterbar5. I went to Synaptic and checked, showing "libtorrent-rasterbar6". Does this mean my version of libtorrent-rasterbar is too new?
And I've removed something regarding qbittorrent because I wanted to install rasterbar5. I searched for rasterbar5 in the Net and downloaded it. It connected to the Ubuntu Software Centre automatically but it showed unable to install.
So I thought I failed to upgrade qbittorrent. I just wanted to install the original version (v2.4.0). I did it like the first time I downloaded qbittorrent. Open the Ubuntu Software Centre and search for it and press "install". It failed! Because a type of repositories named "qbittorrent" showing conflict.
I've dealt with a similar problem regarding GIMP successfully before. But I can't remember.
My first upgrade attempt to 9.10 ruined my install - there was no return and as 9.10 would not install either, I reinstalled 9.04 and everything was as expected.I decided to wait for 10.04 hoping the issue had been solved - unluckily it has NOT. Neither Live CD 9.10 nor 10.04 work. New Mint does not work either - to closely related to Ubuntu, but Suse live CD does. Played around with findings from different threads - like taking out "quiet splash --" and adding modprob parameter to no avail Prime suspect is HD and HD controller (ATA/PATA) - but I could not nail it.
I had a hell of a time getting 10.04 to work, because I only have a Logitech Dinovo Edge keyboard, and it stopped working after I upgraded. After grub, I'd get to the login screen, and the keyboard wouldn't do anything.
First, I dug up a mouse that did work. Then I logged in by clicking the Human Accessibility icon on the login screen. Somewhere in there, I was able to bring up an on screen keyboard. With the on screen keyboard, I could now login. Under system>preferences>bluetooth, I was able to, after some fiddling and plugging and unplugging, get the keyboard paired to the bluetooth dongle. Anyway, it seems pretty obvious now that my original bluetooth pairing was lost with the 10.04 upgrade, and I just needed to re-pair. I don't remember having such problems on previous upgrades, though.
I installed a PPA repository ppa:danilo/evolution, and try to upgrade evolution from there. However, there was a dependency fail, and it did nothing. Thus, I remove the repository. Nonetheless, today I find out that my installed version of evolution is gone! and when I try to install it again, it says that danilo's repository has a dependency fail... and it does nothing.
I had a machine that dual-booted Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10. This past weekend I thought I'd upgrade to 10.04. I obviously selected the utterly wrong set of selections when prompted during installation to pick partitions for GRUB2 to manage. I am sorry I can't say what I picked, but I can tell you the results:
* Ubuntu 10.04 boots fine * Windows 7 just blinks with a flashing cursor in the upper left * I do have my Win 7 install disc and used the "repair" option and the command line commands, but the repair disc does NOT see any valid Windows partitions... no C:, nothing. I can't run the various repair options I've seen online because there's nothing to run it on. * I can see the Windows partition when booted under Ubuntu... all the data is still apparently there. * I've seen various threads about restarting with the LiveCD and re-running GRUB2 but am not sure I've seen a definitive page on how to re-run GRUB2 and what to select once I've done so.
I would be happy to get both Win 7 and Ubuntu bootable, but barring that, I would like to get Win 7 back with everything intact. If the easiest path forward is to reformat and reinstall Win 7, that's less fine but doable -- I've backed up what I can via Ubuntu to an external drive.
I am attempting to upgrade Fedora 12 to 13. I get an error screen that said root could not be found. Four options are given. Not sure exactly their wording, but two appear to allow you to cancel the other two warn that if you reinitialize you will wipe out all data.
I have a Vista partition and a Fedora partition. I've added the vista ntfs partition to fstab with no help. All of the partition use the long UUID form. I added the root location (root (hd0,5) to the upgrade menu item in grub.conf and that didn't work either.
I'm reluctant to proceed for fear of initializing the entire drive. I could live with installing Fedora 13 over the existing partitions.
since it started i cannot launch software-center, vlc, emesene... they all stopped working... i checked the logs of synaptic to see if i removed a python package and i didn't. i tried selecting all python packages for reinstall, and it didn't help! i really don't want to reinstall ubuntu.
Since upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, I have this problem where programs to redirect me to webpages. It just loads up my home page and acts like it's finished. Even if I have Firefox previously open, nothing happens.Programs this happens with are Apport (when I try to file bug-reports), Tomboy (if I click "get add-ins"), and Liferea until I edited a setting telling it not to use the default gnome browser but to use Firefox.I know the first thing you'd think hearing that is that my web browser isn't set in my gnome default applications, but it is. When I open firefox in terminal this error pops up
I am using Fedora 11I have sound working for flash videos, audio files, and simple recording applications like Audacity and in general.I get tons of fatal error popups on the screen as well.Rather annoying but does anyone know what the source to the problem is?
Ihave Ubuntu 9.10. would like to upgrade soon to the new version of Ubuntu via the package manager. If i upgrade this way will my programs and files and pictures stay as is. I have all my stuff backed up anyways, but would like to know how this upgrade works.
Today I upgraded my 10.10 to 11.04. Since the last step of upgrading, when it was restarted, I get stucked in consola where it is checking, and there is written fail at stopping automatic crash report generation. How can I repair it. I tried to do
I recently upgraded to 10.04 and now netbeans is not working. It worked fine the first restart after i upgraded so i thought all was good. This morning i ran it and it said something about not being able to load some modules. Since then, i've tried uninstalling it, re-installing it, and numerous restarts, all to no avail. I'm gonna try downloading the package from their website and running it from a separate install and see if that helps, but after that, I'm out of ideas.
When i run it either from the terminal or by clicking on it, it shows the loading screen, then the loading screen dissapears, then nothing else happens. In the terminal, it waits about ten seconds after the screen dissapears and the program seems to exit, since the terminal begins accepting commands once again.
I upgraded to 10.04 and cannot boot my system, even in recovery mode. No errors are shown, only some random color noise at the top of screen. I tried the 10.04 livecd and it doesnt boot eiter, it stops in busybox prompt with error: "Could not mount /dev/loop1 on /cow" or something like that. Before 9.10 was functioning perfectly.
Yesterday I attempt to use update-manager to do a distribution update. all was going good. i went to the kitchen to get a coffee and returned to a black screen with no cursor. the install couldnot have finished as it was still downloading updates i believe.
on reboot gnome did not respond so my last resort was to use kde for the time being. by running update-manager through kde I successfully updated to ubuntu 10.10. After completion of the update i restarted and gnome still had a non respinsive black screen on login.
After upgrading my ubuntu server from 8.04 to 10.04 and then to 10.10, grub failed to load and showed a: L 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 ....
I restarted using a liveCD, mounted my boot partition as /boot and then "grub-install /dev/sdb" (sda is the usb drive now) so I have access to grub console, but I don't know how to recover my boot menu.
I also use LVM, but I don't know if this is relevant.
I just upgraded to F15 and it went well. But at the next and each subsequent cold boot the BIOS reports "Your system last boot fail or post interrupted Please enter setup to load default and reboot". The board is an asus P5N-D. I press F1 to blow past the error and all is well until the next cold boot. Restarts are fine, no errors at all.
