Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Ssh During Aptitude Updates / How To Reattach

Mar 7, 2011

I lost my ssh connection to Ubuntu 10.10 server during the configuration update stage of an aptitude full-upgrade for a few month's worth of updates.From the following ps ax list, can anyone tell me how I might reconnect to the screen which is prompting whether to keep the existing samba version, or use the distribution conf version?

Failing that, what's the safest sequence top kill these processes and start again? This time I'll remember to use screen to prevent connection loss.

General :: GNU Screen - Unable To Reattach To Screen After Lost Connection?

Jan 1, 2011

I was using irssi in screen but lost connection. After I ssh'd back in to the server, I can no longer attach to that screen. screen -ls shows that the screen is already attached. I tried screen -D to force detach it, and it said detach but screen -ls still says it's attached. I tried screen -x and it just hangs there.

[sub@server ~]$ screen -ls
There are screens on:
4033.poe (Detached)
7728.irssi (Attached)
2 Sockets in /var/run/screen/S-sub.What can I do now?

Jul 11, 2010

I am trying to upgrade an amd64 lenny system to squeeze.I've got a 2.6.32 kernel running, done aptitude update and aptitude install aptitude.When I try "aptitude safe-upgrade", it sits forever resolving dependencies.it seems to search with the resolver counting up more and more open/conflict/ whatever.I stopped it once it got over 100,000)Is it possible to get aptitude to do a safe-upgrade, perhaps using a command line option?

Debian :: Search For Security Updates Using Aptitude?

Apr 30, 2010

I've been looking for an aptitude command to search for security updates. This information is being shown when running the screen. So far I reached to this command: aptitude search '~S ~VCANDIDATE ~Asecurity ~U' It looks like producing the correct results, but I still don't quite understand the how the filter (~S) command works.

New to Ubuntu not to Unix. I am having issues with aptitude updates. Gives error unable to locate. When I look for the file manually I cannot find it either. It is looking for http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid/main Translation-en_US. Is there a site that list all mirrors that carry the updates? I would like to find manually and adjust source.list file.

Ubuntu Servers :: Aptitude Updates Download Speed Fluxuation?

Mar 9, 2011

I've noticed this happening on some servers that I manage. I'll be downloading updates around 300 kb/s - 500 kb/s and then out of nowhere it will drop to about 3 kb/s. It will stay here forever, if I let it. I then have to cancel (Ctrl-C) the updates and restart them. This happens over and over and over until I finally get the full download. Why does this happen?

Debian Configuration :: Updates Available But Aptitude Upgrade Ignores Them

Nov 21, 2010

After running "aptitude upgrade" I have been getting a message lately such as "There are x updates available, it is recommended to update your system". But, running aptitude update/upgrade again afterwards, aptitude ignores these supposedly available updates to the system. How can I clear up this situation?. I am using the latest Debian Squeeze distro

Debian :: Getting Lines On Screen With Aptitude Gtk When Squeeze Updates

Apr 26, 2010

what would happen if aptitude needed to ask me a question, (like which config file to keep for a certian essential program, etc.). I don't think I've come across this problem yet, but I really wouldn't know. I do get the following lines on the screen with aptitude-gtk just about every day when I do squeeze updates and I wonder if it's not related to this same question. Does anyone know if aptitude-gtk is capable of asking you, the administrator, questions about a package that it's updating?

Debian :: Aptitude / Size Mismatch / Weekly Updates To Squeeze

Jun 15, 2010

this is at the root of the problems I'm about to describe: Whenever I try to upgrade my Debian installation, I have repeated "size mismatch" errors that necessitate restarting the upgrade process. Since I'm using Debian Squeeze there are lots of upgrades to be done every week. Today, for instance, because I've not upgraded for a few weeks I have to download over 300MB of files to complete the upgrade. However, because of the size mismatch problem this download may well turn into something between 1GB and 2GB, as I repeatedly have to re-download files that were successfully downloaded in the last failed upgrade. What with my ISP limiting me to 7GB per month, I'm finding that merely keeping Debian up to date is using up most of my allotted bandwidth.

I've tried setting the Aptitude preferences not to "remove unused packages automatically", and not to "remove obsolete package files after downloading package lists", but for some reason I still find that files I downloaded in the last failed upgrade have to be downloaded again (and again, ...) whether anyone either knows how to avoid the package size mismatch problem (I can't change my ISP, which has a monopoly on providing internet to my area), or alternatively knows how to set Aptitude not to forget the packages it has downloaded successfully during each failed upgrade, thereby allowing me to avoid such a huge bandwidth usage on my frequent upgrades.

Debian Configuration :: Stuck In Aptitude Limbo - Errors During Updates

Sep 1, 2011

It's trying to fix/complete failed installs but keeps encountering the same errors (error message below). I'm running basically Testing, but there are a few Stable and SID packages due to issues with the blasted nVidia legacy drivers. I've swapped out the video board with an ATI board so that is sorted, but now I can't do any updates. Hoping there is some way to manually override apt's determination to try to fix all broken packages whenever I do anything (install, remove, update, etc). A Google search of this error message didn't turn up anything recent. Any thoughts are welcome.

There were a ssh session, but client side crashed and after reconnect, here is still pseudo terminal and process attached to it. Is there any way how to reattach the pts or reattach process to another terminal?

General :: Internet Connection Lost After Ubuntu 10 Latest Updates

Feb 14, 2011

I installed ubuntu 10 just yesterday. Everything was working just fine. The auto-update function advised me to download and install the latest updates and so I did. It was over 300 MB. I installed it, did a reboot and my internet connection was lost. I tried a few things I found on this forum yesterday. Nothing worked. I can go on-line on the same computer using windows 7. But I always have to reboot to try the different solutions. All right that's fixed! But now I just have to fix Firefox...

Fedora Networking :: Lost WPA Support After Updates

Mar 5, 2011

Running FC14 64 bit with KDE. I have an atheros wireless card that was working fine for months. Just recently I downloaded and installed some updates I got automatically. After a reboot, I have suddenly lost my wireless connection. I am still able to connect to unsecured networks but my network uses WPA and the status of the connection always freezes on "Awaiting Authentication". When connecting, it pops up the secrets windows asking for the wpa key even though its already entered. I've reset my home router several times to test various configurations with no encryption and with WPA. My key is correct but it will not connect. I've researched this issue and found others to have the same problem though their fixes have not worked for me.

I've gone through a few things. Wireless radio button on, networking and wireless enabled in fedora. Card still shown in lspci and with iwconfig. Funny enough, there was no wireless card listed in Network Manager. So I added the connection again and set it to be controlled by network manager and start on boot. No difference.

I'm wondering exactly what was updated that caused this. I didn't pay attention to what updates they were. This update occurred 3/5/2011. I've tried booting to the two previous backup kernels, but that doesnt help either. Also ran dmesg | grep wlan0 to find that the device was not active or ready but I could still connect to unsecured networks. So I'm stumped and would really rather not reinstall. Besides, when I get the updates again, it will probably do the same thing. Is this a bug? I would post more information but I am not with my box at the moment.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Updates Returns To Main Window Without Installing Updates

Mar 24, 2011

For some reason Update Manager is not installing updates as of yesterday.I have it set to check daily and notify if updates are available. It has been working without issues for well over a year now.

Update Manager tells me updates are available and presents the list of security, recommended, and other updates. All are selected to update, but when I select Install Updates in Update Manager it returns with a Reading Package Information window overlaid on the main Update Manager window - building dependency tree then reading state information and dumps me back to the main Update Manager window without performing any update actions.

Ubuntu Installation :: Aptitude Wants To Remove A Package?

Jan 19, 2010

i installed a package with dpkg --install and told it to ignore an unmet dependency because the package it depended on could not be installed with apt-get (it was a perl module) and i have manually installed the perl module, it works... however every time i do "apt-get upgrade" or anything like that it wants to remove the package i forced to install because it still thinks there are unmet dependencies, is there a way to either tell it to ignore that the package has unmet dependencies (i mean ignore that always, not something i will have to add every time i use aptitude) or is there a way to convince it that the package it thinks is missing (the unmet dependency) is actually met.

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

Ubuntu Installation :: Aptitude Downloading Files Simultaneously?

Apr 24, 2011

Ubuntu Lucid 32-bit desktop machine. I run "aptitude update" and "aptitude safe-upgrade" manually from the command-line regularly to upgrade my machine. I usually don't pay that much attention to the downloading, but I noticed yesterday that aptitude appeared to be downloading four files simultaneously, rather than the one at a time that I've always seen. Would this be correct? How can I change that? I can't say I've ever noticed it before.

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

Debian :: Aptitude Doesn't Work After Installation

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.

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
