Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager No Longer Works Post Upgrade To Lucid
May 28, 2010
When I run update manager, it gives me an error message saying:
This can be caused by:
* A previous update 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
if I click partial upgrade, it looks like it did during the upgrade, then says:
There are no upgrades available for your system. The upgrade will now be canceled.
if I click close from the first "not all updates can be installed" dialog, it says:
It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first.
running the suggested line gives the following output:
In Synaptic, fixing broken packages does nothing. Mark All Updates > Apply seems to work, but I'd still like to figure out why Update Manager does not?
Since I upgraded to 10.04 and ran Computer Janitor, the Xiphos Bible Guide no longer works. The splash screen comes up for a second and then disappears. I've tried removing and re-installing the program to no avail.
I'm trying to upgrade Karmic to Lucid. I open the update manager, click the "upgrade" button, and then again the "upgrade" button in the window that pops up. Then it just closes down. When running the update manager from a terminal, the only output is "Segmentaion fault".
my HUAWEI E160E Virgin Mobile no longer works after upgrade to Lucid it is detected but the connection no longer works. I tried deleting the connection and trying again but the modem is not detected in network-manager. The modem was working when i was using Karmic and still works on my UNR Karmic Netbook. I have tried various methods but I have not been able to get it to work.
having had problems with getting grub2 to work on dual HDD setup...despite the most excellent advice on the forum i took the plunge and installed 10.10 from update manager within 10.04..... bingo fixed grub and now have dual boot again. but the update manager and synaptic package don't work because of libedata-cal1.2-6 file that remains..following other advice on the forum Advice gratefully received, how can i force an unistall of this package
mark@studypc:~$ sudo apt-get -f remove Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done
I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 and the sound on my machine no longer works. I was previously using the OSS for sound. I'd like the sound solution that requires the minimal effort and I don't necessarily need to run OSS again. Ubuntu is installed on a Dell Optiplex 960.
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.
I recently tried to add a repository by following the directions here: Banshee.fm/download and then select the ubuntu icon at the top. Here is the error I get when I try to run update manager: "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 'banshee-team/ppa/ubuntu' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/banshee-team-ppa-natty.list'The command I entered was sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa. I have tried to remove all banshee related checks in software sources of the ubuntu software center. Then I just removed the lines all together. I still cannot open update manger. Get the same error. Anyone know of a fix?
I installed Lucid several days ago, and have just noticed that SCIM no longer works. I need it for Japanese input, but cannot turn on Anthy. The manual is either nonexistent or extremely terse with a lot of presupposed knowledge.I've installed German, Russian and Spanish language support, along with CJK. I can't even get the SCIM tool to pop up now---except ONCE!Simply reinstalling using Synaptic overlays the existing problem(s), and does not resolve any issues.SCIM may be conflicting with the desktop Switcher applet? Actually, SCIM seems to be conflicting with other Gnome desktop shortcuts, as well
I recently got an iPhone 3g and have been trying to upload music onto my device with Rhythmbox because my computer exclusively runs Ubuntu (10.04 LTS, Lucid Lynx). Rhythmbox would show files that were dragged and dropped as being on the iPhone, and they appeared in the iPhone's folders, but they weren't recognized in the iPod player. I followed a variety of forum threads to try to fix the problem, but ended up creating a whole new set of problems with my package manager.
I get this error message before package manager opens: E: Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-lucid.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
And this message after I close the first error message window and the package manager opens: An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:
'E:Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-lucid.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.' Does anyone have any recommendations on how to fix this? If it isn't already apparent, I am very inexperienced working with ubuntu, so the more detailed the response, the better.
The upgrade appeared to go smoothly, but now logging in to a normal session just gives me a desktop wallpaper and nothing else.If I log into Gnome-Failsafe then I get a panel and desktop icons back, but still no window managerI have to initiate metacity manually.Wondered if it was something to do with my messy personalisation settings, but a new test account I created has the same problem.
Update Manager wants me to update to Firefox 3.5.7. I'm currently running 64-bit Firefox 3.5.6. I'd like to update, but Update Manager says nothing about this 3.5.7 being the 64-bit version. If I upgrade from the UM, I don't know if I'll be getting 32-bit or 64-bit FF. How can I tell beforehand which one I'll get?
As stated on the title Ubuntu 10.10 does not appear on the Update Manager in order to do the Upgrade. I really don't want to download it and burn it on a CD in order to Upgrade my Laptop. My current version is 10.04 LTS.
Basically, the update manager pops up and... nothing happens. It checks for updates but doesn't indicate upgrade availability.Running other commands like apt-get distribution-upgrade also doesn't do anything.
I think the problem is the fact that I've installed a bunch of software from rep's and ppa's via ubuntu-tweak that are more recent than the ones in Ubuntu's rep, but I can't been sure.Also, I've deactivated all third party rep's and ppa's, but I still have a bunch of software installed via those sources.
I'm trying to do an online upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04 using the update manager. Since update manager did not indicate that there was and upgrade, I used the update-manager --devel-release command to initiate the process. The upgrade stops during while looking for channels with the following error message:
A problem occurred during the update. This is usually some sort of network problem, please check your network connection and retry.
W:Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dis...kports/Release Unable to find expected entry main/debian-installer/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)
E:Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead. I don't believe this to be a network problem because it fails in the same place every time. I don't see the entry for debian-installer in the Release file which I believe is why the error is occuring, however, I'm not sure what to do about it. It seems like something is pointed to the wrong place. I've maintained this system with update-manager for several years and never had a problem.
I was so impressed by the screen-shots of 10.04 LTS that i wanted upgrade via the update manager( am using karmic 9.10).Everything went well with downloading the new packages till the point of installation of downloaded packages. Halfway through the installation power went off and when i restarted the system it was stuck at some point with the message
Code: mount: nothing to mount in /dev or something like that. Then i restarted the system in recovery mode and ran "dpkg" to fix broken packages hoping it would fix the issue.It did to some extent that i was type the problem here through the affected system.
The problem is i couldn't send the crash report the first time around and i can't get hold of it now.My system is somewhere between karmic and lucid ("About Ubuntu" shows as karmic and System Monitor shows it as lucid").So i how do i get a clean installation of lucid?
I'm noticing that maybe twice a month the Update Manager is asking me to upgrade my kernel. Currently it's asking me to move to 22.214.171.124.25. Is this the smart thing to do? Are these primarily securtiy updates to the kernel?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop edition on one of my machines and its connected to internet via network proxy with username/password authentication enabled.
I've provided proxy details in Synaptic Package Manager and also in System -> Preferences -> Network Proxy. I can see any new updated libraries when I check Update Manager, but somehow I do not see the notice of availability of Ubuntu 10.10 and hence not able to upgrade.
On my home laptop (Dell Inspiron 700m) which connects to internet directly and over there I was able to upgrade to 10.10
So I think there is some problem with respect to update manager where it cant see the new release available behind proxy.
Ubuntu Studio (no idea what version, no idea how to find out) Update Manager has been saying 10.04 is ready for quite some time, but I cannot install the upgrade. The first time, more than a month ago, it had problems with Java and aborted. This time it couldn't find a repository in NZ so it threw up its (virtual) hands and gave up. Should I even try to upgrade? I keep installing maintenance and security updates (except Adobe Flash Player which Adobe cannot identify). It does most of what I want it to do. Does 10.04 (or 10.10) really matter? Assuming I try for US 10.04 LTS again, how do I get it past its problems?
Before I upgraded to Karmic, I had Japanese text input set up on my system, but since the upgrade it no longer works. I can still read Japanese text, and when I press Ctrl+SPACE I still get the ANTHY box in the bottom right-hand corner, but Japanese is no longer on the list of supported languages. how to get Japanese back?
I recently upgraded my Zepto laptop to Natty (11.04), and unfortunately the wifi no longer worked. I have a WPA net, and the combination with a Ralink chip seems unfortunate - judging from the number of internet posts.After browsing loads of threads on the 'net I think I have found a solution for 11.04 - it will work out of the box in 11.10 !
1) Add "blacklist rt2800pci" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
I think this makes the wifi stuff work as I can then do "iwlist wlan0 scan" and get reasonable output. But there is no integration with the Network Manager. So I have also done this (again, with inspiration from a few threads):
2) Edit /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf - change the "managed=false" under "[ifupdown]" to "managed=true".
You may have to do a "service network-manager restart", restart or similar to get it going.It also seems I can suspend and get a wifi net connection upon wakeup.
I'm on a fully updated and upgraded 9.10, and when I do update-manager -d, I don't get the button to do an upgrade to 10.04! What could cause this? I've tried the -d, -c, --check-dist-upgrades, --devel-release, -p, --proposed, and --dist-upgrade. I'm completely up to date on 9.10, but I want to upgrade to 10.04!
I am using Ubuntu 9.10, as i want to upgrade to 10.04. I followed the Ubuntu steps mention in Ubuntu.com but my update manager is not showing upgrade option..i tried below command that too did not show any output about the available updates..#do-release-upgrade.Checking for a new Ubuntu release.No new release found.
I am currently using 10.04 and I want to upgrade to 10.10 but no upgrade button is appearing on the update manager. I had already installed all updates and the settings was already changed to show normal distribution releases.
