Ubuntu :: Update Unity With 10.10 Maverick Meerkat

Mar 10, 2011

I currently have Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick netbook edition installed and I am using Unity. I understand there are updates to Unity since it was bundled with Ubuntu. When I do:

$ unity --version
I get:
Unity 0.2.46

How do I update to a more recent version of Unity? Or do I have to wait until I upgrade to Natty?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Maverick - Cannot Update To Natty Version

Jul 26, 2011

I have an 10.10 Maverick Ubuntu, and I've tried to update it to Natty version, but when I try it says to I check my connection with Internet and then close the update app, but my connection is fine, I think this could be something related to the host, since when I try to use sudo or play Frets on Fire it says that they "couldn't resolve the host".

Ubuntu :: Update Manager Error - Natty Nawhal 11.04

May 13, 2011

I was messing around with some stuff I probably shouldn't have when trying to get my Intel graphics card working better (that's another problem completely). Now the update manager has ceased to work. Every time I try to use it this error pops up:


Could not initialize the package information

An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:Type [url] is not known on line 57 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list'

Ubuntu :: Natty Update Manager GUI: Not Showing Progress

May 18, 2011

When I run the update manager in XUbuntu (natty/11:04) it does not show its progress while installing the upgrades.

After clicking on "install updates" and authenticating, there used to be a popup window with a progress bar and an option to show "details" but these appear to have disappeared in the last few days.

I don't recall switching these features off and there are no settings to restore them, available within the GUI. Is there another way of restoring this functionality?

If not, is a reinstall the way to go? If so what package(s) need re-installing? And in-case it is a configuration script, what files in my home directory need deleting to ensure a clean reinstall.

Jul 4, 2010

I am trying to update using Update Manager and I get this message: Failed to fetch "Failed to fetch [URL]..404 Not Found" My system is 64 days out of date now.

I have looked elsewhere for an answer and some others have had similar problems, but I have not found a reason for it happening, nor an answer. I wonder if anyone can help me please. I have been using Ubuntu for several months, can use the Terminal if I have the right commands to issue, but beyond that have limited knowledge of the system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Not Restart 10.4 Update After Broken Download

May 2, 2010

I started the upgrade to 10.4 from 9.10 through the update manager. It started the update to 10.4. After downloading almost 95% of the update, it gave an error message of "could not download certain components. downloaded files will not be erased" and stopped the update. I restarted the PC, and started the update manager again. But now it does not show any option of update to 10.4. how do I continue or resume the update process? I just started using ubuntu about 15 days back. So, I am relatively new to this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Results Of 'apt-get Update' Command Different Than Update Manager

Mar 24, 2011

I've run the command "sudo apt-get update" from terminal, showing no update to do.Then I've run the update manager (System-Administration-Update Manager) and it has shown an update (adobe flash).I thought that "apt-get update" command and update manager were the same... Why do I have different results ? Is something missing in my "sources.list" file ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Doesn't Find Update?

Apr 20, 2011

Normally Update Manager always finds the update to the next version of Ubuntu. It still hasn't given me any notion whatoever. I allready changed the settings from regular to LTS, but nothing changes. There are updates to the kernel, but I cannot download them, so I'm kinda stuck here.

Ubuntu Installation :: Warning Against Selecting The 'update' Option In Meerkat?

Nov 22, 2010

Why isn't there a clear warning against selecting the 'update' option in Meerkat?I know it seems like a good idea to have it, but unless a server speed test is run, it adds a huge amount of time to the install (3 1/2 hours of downloading so far). It's not my internet connection (ADSL2+ - fast), so it must be an overloaded server and/or congested intercontinental data pipes.

After the installation, it's possible to find one's optimal (fastest) server before running updates - and I know from past experience that this makes a huge difference to little old me in Australia. I can certainly update everything much faster than I am currently seeing . I strongly recommend that, if this option is kept in future distributions, it should include a server speed test (and auto selection of the best server?) as well as a realistic warning to the user.
