Ubuntu Installation :: Not All Updates Installed - Run Partial Upgrade

Sep 29, 2010

I am using the latest Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid lynx. Sometimes ago while I am updating my operating system to linux-image-2.6.32-25-generic (2.6.32-25.44) with update manager, after downloading all the files it was running the installation. During installation suddenly my pc turned off, may be for some power issue. Then while I again start my pc and tried to restart the update process the update manager show me a message. "Not all updates can be install. Run a partial upgrade, to install as many as updates as possible."

This can be caused by:
* A previous upgrade which didn't complete.
* Problem with some of the installed software.
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu.
* Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu.

Then I tried to open the synaptic package manager. But it didn't open either and show another message which suggest to run the command in the terminal: "sudo dpkg --configure -a". And unluckily it wasn't work. and show the messgae:
"dpkg: parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0103' near line 0: newline in field name `#padding'".

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Do Partial Clean Install Rather Than Upgrade

Apr 14, 2010

I have a compaq nx7010. It started out with 8.04 or perhaps 8.10. I upgraded it through to 9.04 when that became available. I have not upgraded to 9.10 year, because I recall it took me a fair amount of time to get my system working correctly after the 9.04 upgrade. At a guess, audio went down, wifi broke, and that sort of thing. I am now finding that apps I use are not releasing new versions compatible with 9.04. And I see 10.04 is on its way, and I understand it is best to go from one upgrade to the next rather than jump a release.

Here's my question:
I get the impression it is cleaner and more stable to do a clean install as opposed to an upgrade. I've also seen many people expressing that view. I've always just gone with upgrading because I didn't like the thought of having to set my whole computer up the way I like it, again. Is there a way to do a clean install that will keep my system the way I like it? For instance, to not have to reconfigure every application?

I have my partitions set up like this:
ext3 /home
ext3 /

Just how much config related stuff is stored in the /home folder? Or is this purely user files? What is the consensus? Is it better to upgrade or to do a clean install? My intention is to have a stable system that does not require hours of my time to get sound and wifi working, with the latest release on it (so that I can run the latest apps).

Ubuntu Installation :: System Crash After Partial Upgrade 10.10?

Apr 7, 2011

I have a Dell studio running ubuntu for two years now. I had ubuntu 10.04, but a few days ago, the update manager started to bug me that some stuff don't work properly and that I need to to a partial upgrade. I postponed that for a while, and all worked fine, but I finally had sometime and clicked "yes", all began collapsing:

1) the update manager crashed while updating.

2) I rebooted and ran it again. same crash at the same stage.

3) I decided, god knows why, to do a full upgrade to 10.10, which also crasehd.

Now it won't even boot. It always get stuck at a line saying "no IPv6 routers present" or something of that sort. when I switch off manually the wireless switch on the laptop, the boot gets stuck a bit earlier, on a line that says: "laptop login:"

EDIT: I just remembered something which might be important: I had a hibernation problem on the upgrade to 10.04, so I played around a bit with that. now it uses libgcrypt, and I remember I set up something manually then, but I can't remember what.

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Interrupted - Not All Updates Can Be Installed

May 7, 2011

My laptop is sadly rather elderly and the battery is broken, so if it is unplugged it loses power and immediately turns off. Unfortunately I managed to accidentally do exactly this in the middle of upgrading from Lucid to Natty. I turned the computer back on, some automated disk checks were run, and I'm now apparently using Maverick.

Launching Update Manager, I get the following message:
"Not all updates can be installed
Run a partial upgrade, to install as many updates as possible.

This can be caused by:
*A previous upgrade which didn't complete
*Problems with some of the installed software
*Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
*Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu"

Clicking the "Partial Upgrade" option, the system starts to upgrade but exits with the following in the Terminal:
"dpkg: parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0121' near line 42 package 'texlive-xetex':
duplicate value for 'Status' field"

Basically I have no idea what to do from here. The functions that I need from my computer are working (internet, music player) and I don't really need much more than that but I'd rather it was working. Also I can't install any updates or upgrade to Natty until this is solved.

Ubuntu Installation :: Not All Updates Can Be Installed?

Feb 8, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, and I had some trouble with an old Drupal installation, so I ran the script below in an effort to revert PHP back to version 5.2. The script below didn't work for me, and now Update Manager gives me the message "Not all updates can be installed", presumably because the script changed the repository for some of the software from lucid to karmic.Script which "broke" Update Manager:Quote:

Ubuntu Installation :: Updates Are Not Being Installed?

Feb 9, 2011

I am a recent convert to Ubuntu and have the Ubuntu 10.10 version installed on my computer.All has been going on well until I installed FreePops. Since then, when I check for updates through the Update Manager, it shows that it's searching for updates but then it brings up a pop up stating the following "Failed to download repository information" and under this the following is mentioned "W:Failed to fetch [URL], E:Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."I have removed FreePops from Synaptic Package Manager but the above mentioned error still appears and updates cannot be installed. I have rebooted my computer also and performed the updates but the error still appears.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Not All Updates Can Be Installed

Mar 29, 2011

Today when I started my computer I got an error from the updater saying the Following
Ubuntu 10.10
Not all updates can be installed
Run a part upgrade to install as many as possible.

This can be caused by:
*A earlier update that hasn't been complete
*Problem with parts of the installed software
*In offical program packages that havent been "?Something?" By ubuntu
*Common changes in a early version of ubuntu

So what should I do? Just take Part update? And do you know what may be the cause of this. Only thing I installed lately was a "game" from the ubuntu Program central and I haven't run it and I restarted my computer 1 time before this when having it installed.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet After Partial Upgrade?

Mar 5, 2011

Ubuntu 10.10 offered me a partial upgrade, so I clicked to install the updates. No problem, everything went fine.

Then the next time I boot ubuntu, internet doesn't work. The loopback interface is active, but the ethernet interface is not.

I've googeled for a solution, but can't find any.

This is the second time in 1.5 week. The first time I rebooted ten times or so and internet just suddenly worked again.

Ubuntu Installation :: Flawless Upgrade On Toshiba NB-100-11R - Disabled To Only Allow Updates For 8.04

May 2, 2010

My Toshiba NB100 originally came pre-installed with 8.04 LTS and even has a 'Ubuntu Certified' case sticker, so I expected that jumping to the next LTS should be easy... It was. Simply burnt the image to a thumb drive, booted into the live mode, saw that everything worked and installed it. Everything that worked in 8.04 works here. Not a single problem!

Of course, you have to do a clean install though because the 8.04 supplied by Toshiba is disabled to only allow updates for 8.04 but not to upgrade. I did not need to install any 'Payson' packages and the once proprietary wireless driver is now not, so I have a totally non-proprietary system.

As well as looking nicer and booting faster there are other pluses. I can now upgrade in future without a clean install (if I want) and hopefully no longer have to put up with updates breaking the system - for example sound disappeared on two 8.04 updates (a finding found by many NB100-11R users) and the last update which pushed me to try 10.04 ASAP also made my webcam undetectable and the keyboard mapping all wrong. No such problems here now and I don't expect it.

So, if you have Toshiba-NB100-11R, there is absolutely nothing to lose. Backup your valued files and go for it. Totally painless. Of course you'll need add all the restricted stuff back yourself, but that's not hard. EDIT: Only one thing doesn't work (that doesn't bother me): the function key to toggle wireless on and off. It always remains on.

Ubuntu Installation :: "Not All Updates Can Be Installed"?

Sep 7, 2010

start ubuntu, the update manager will automaticly start and tells me that "Not all updates can be installed". I know this is a common issue people ask questions about, because I've seen a number of threads.Still, after reading about this issue, I'm unsure how to fix it. I'll describe my situation:When I close the messagebox, I'm left with an update manager that presents me with 851 updates. Some checkboxes are unchecked and cannot be checked. It also shows me that I can upgrade to 10.4. I don't want to do that yet. I just want to recieve my updates to keep my system safe and up-to-date.I've taken a look at the situation in synaptic. I clicked "Mark all upgrades". It marked a whole lot of them. I noticed that "gdm" and maybe 20 other packages were about to be removed. I became supsicious. Is this a good thing? I've also added two third party repositories, as you can see in my sources.list:

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu karmic-security main restricted
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu karmic-security main restricted

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Upgrade - What Packages Are Installed By Default

Since I had problems with Openoffice since the upgrade to 9.10, I've tried to uninstall all openoffice. I've searched for 'openoffice' in synaptic and uninstalled all thet I've found. It has uninstalled many other things, thunderbird, firefox and god only knows what other. Now, there is a way to know what are the packages installed by default? Or, to install all the dafault packages? Or, there is a log of what I've uninstalled?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Packages That Are Newer Than Those In Upgrade?

Nov 13, 2010

After upgrading from one version of Ubuntu to another, what happens to packages that have been installed prior to the upgrade that have higher version numbers (are newer) than the ones that are supposed to be installed via the Ubuntu upgrade?Specifically, I'm referring to compiling the latest version of FreeType to try to alleviate some dependency issues related to compiling Wine (I need a custom Wine patch), and I was wondering what would happen if I had a newer version of FreeType installed if I then later upgraded from Lucid to Maverick, and if Maverick used an older version of FreeType by default than the one already installed on my system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Partial - XP Partition - Do Not Have The Key

Jan 29, 2011

I have an older Dell Inspiron e1505. The hard-drive went bad years ago and I look to revive it. I purchased a new hard-drive and proceeded to install Windows XP Pro that I have a partial install of XP professional but do not have the key. Microsoft explained because I cannot find I would have to buy a new one instead of keeping my key within their Microsoft store. So instead of purchasing a new key I would like to install the latest version of Ubuntu and go the Linux route.

I downloaded the latest version(non pc I believe) and have it booting of the Cdrom. I am now stuck because it bypasses the cdrom /disk and starts to load XP home again. Will continue to research as I move forward but would definitely like some pointers on what I can do as far as removing the partial install of Windows XP home.

Ubuntu Installation :: Freeze After Partial Install?

Dec 15, 2010

Today I tried to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10. It got through probably 50% of the install and then everything froze. I had to hard restart the computer, but when I try to boot to ubuntu, it just gives me a prompt and acts as if everything is wrong. I have tried a few things (sudo dpkg -configure -a; sudo dpkg -reconfigure; etc..) but it all seems to lead back to the prompt with no success. Is there anyway to recover my upgrade? Do I have to resort to a reinstall of ubuntu and lose all my data?
