Ubuntu Installation :: Error Downloading Packages While Updating 10.04 After Clean Install

Aug 5, 2010

I'm trying to update Ubuntu 10.04 after a clean installation, it downloaded 245 files,and there is an error in the indexes of the 2 last packages:Failed to fetch [URL] difiere (bad size) Failed to fetch [URL] difiere (bad size) This happens even changing the repository to main server or another through "Software origins".Update-manager doesn't conclude the update because it can't download all the packages.

Fedora Installation :: Updating To KDE 4.2 In F10 - Error Downloading Packages

Feb 17, 2009

I got a problem while updating KDE from 4.1.2 to 4.2. In our college we can't download more than 20MB officially. So I'm unable to get kdegames which is 32MB from Konsole so I downlaoded it using proxy and I copied it into the /var/cache/yum/updates/packages/ folder and now using this command (yum groupinstall 'KDE (K Desktop Environment)').

I tried to update to KDE 4.2 using Konsole but it is showing:
Error Downloading Packages:
6:kdegames-4.2.0-1.fc10.i386: failure: kdegames-4.2.0-1.fc10.i386.rpm from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

And even by double-clicking the KDEgames rpm file I'm unable to install it is saying GPG (I'm not sure GPG or not, start with G i think) Key missing so it is taking too much time and not doing anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Packages In 10.04 - Clean Install On USB Pendrive

Feb 23, 2011

I just performed a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on my flash drive, allocating a 6.5 GB persistence file. Of course, the first thing I did after booting from it was to run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade. After a lengthy install process, I was eventually notified that several packages failed to upgrade. I rebooted and tried again, still to no avail. Now, whenever I install a new package or attempt to upgrade with apt-get, I receive the following or a simmilar output:


Setting up fuse-utils (2.8.1-1.1ubuntu2.2) ...
creating fuse group...
udev active, skipping device node creation.
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)

the paritions on sda have moved to sdc

I have no idea hot to put everything back

Ubuntu Installation :: Updating Fails - Downloading Files Window Pops Up But It Is Blank

Nov 22, 2010

Just during the last three days, when running Update Manager, clicking Check, downloading all available updates, then Clicking Install Updates, the Downloading Files window pops up but it is blank. and it stays blank. The little rotating icon indicates something's going on but, NO. Nothing has happened, even after a couple of hours. Trying to close Downloading Files brings up a window to Force Quit. Then trying to close Update Manager has no effect. to shorten the story, finally a window pops up saying that the "AT SPI Registry" is not responding. I'm sure trying the same thing will not yield different results. I'm running 10.04.

Jun 24, 2010

I did the UPGRADE from Karmic Koala to Lucid, and everything was going well. But now I've been having problems with the UBUNTU UPDATE tool for the last 2 weeks. Every time I try to do an update check on the packages, I get the following message:Failed to fetch http:[url]....Release Unable to find expected entry deb-src/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.I've tried changing the servers to MAIN and others, and still no way to solve it. I've also checked for other posts, but haven't found a solution yet. Here's my SOURCES LIST (gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list)# See http:[url].... for how to upgrade to # newer versions of the distribution.

Ubuntu Installation :: Way To Get All Packages Without Downloading Each Individual Ones?

Dec 26, 2010

I just installed ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my Acer Aspire 5745. The installation was successful. However, I found that my internet is not working. Later I realised that there are no ethernet drivers. The one that I need is Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet controller(NDIS 6.20). My wireless is also not working. This one is a Broadcom 802.11n Network adapter.On googling, I found this thread : URL...

To install the driver first, I had to do build-essential and headers-generic. Since I have a desktop, i thought of manually downloading the packages on my desktop and then transferring it to the acer. But i came across many dependencies for build-essential, that is, I first had to install something else before build-essential. The dependencies led me to further dependencies and so on. Is there any way for me to get all the packages without downloading each individual ones?

Fedora Installation :: Way Of Downloading Some Extra Packages

Jul 13, 2010

if there is a way of downloading some extra packages and including some extra repositories that will automatically install during the main installation? With the option of a few settings being saved too... like for those that are used to windows having the gnome menu on the bottom.

I am promoting and convincing a lot of people to try Linux and I always recommend fedora as the OS of choice. I have no interest in creating my own distro, because I love Fedora. I just want to make sure these users can have all the codecs and little extras that makes computing fun without being a geek.My main issue is when I wipe their HDD and install Fedora, I then have to repeat the same tweaks and installs every time. This is my 7th time doing the exact same install and am looking for a quicker way.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Hulu Not Working On AMD64 / Start Clean And Install Necessary Packages?

May 3, 2010

videos videos work great, but unfortunately, when i try to access videos on hulu.com, i receive this error message: "we're sorry but we're unable stream this video to your system. this may be due to an adobe software limitation on 64-bit linux systems."

this is strange because hulu videos were working after i installed lynx but mysteriously stopped working. i don't have the swfdec-mozilla package installed nor the mozilla-plugin-gnash nor the flashplugin-installer.

what do i need to do to start clean and install the necessary packages?

Fedora Installation :: Get An Analogous Error Associated With Packages Trying To Install Flash Into FireFox

Sep 12, 2010

After a hiatus, I'm fussing with Fedora again. I'm using the 64 bit version of R13. A screen popped up saying I needed to apply fixes to the installion. The maintenance process fails, when tried several times.

FWIW, I get an analogous error associated with packages trying to install Flash into FireFox.

Is it possible that the package archive has been corrupted?

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting After Upgrading To Ubuntu 11.04 And Updating Packages?

Jul 11, 2011

Booted my laptop up for the first time in a while and ran

sudo apt-get upgrade to get updates for my packages. After installing I needed a reboot since I was on kernel 2.6.35-28. Post-reboot, I get stuck on a black screen with random artifacts after the purple screen after Grub, regardless of kernel (back to 2.6.35-22 is the oldest I have) with exception to the recovery mode options. Pressing the power button will shutdown the system in what seems to be the usual manner. The screen changes to the purple with ubuntu in the middle and the dot loading bar and shuts down.

I booted into recovery mode and opted to repair packages and rebooted but to no avail. I can get into a terminal by editing the boot options in Grub swapping out " quiet splash vt.handoff=7 " with "--verbose". Currently have a terminal on kernel 2.6.38-10 Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit. Win 7 partition also boots fine.This feels like a driver issue, but I'm not sure. Boot log (/var/log/boot.log) looks fine except for these lines:

fsck: fsck.ntfs: not found
fsck: Error 2 while executing fsck.ntfs for /dev/sda2 /dev/sda3: clean, 262541/8560640 files, 2310841/36228480 blocks
init: ureadahead-other main process (723) terminated with status 4

The first 2 shouldn't be affecting my Ubuntu boot in this manner (other than failing to automatically mount my NTFS partition, which is a different problem), however the last one worries me. Doing some research on the termination status 4 of ureadahead-other I came across this page here, but am wary to just go around willy-nilly deleting things I don't know much about. It wouldn't be a great loss to simply blow the disk away and restart, but I'd rather salvage what's there if I can..
