Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From CD Fails / Needs Internet Connection / Not Using Packages On Cd

Oct 11, 2010

I use the CD upgrade method to upgrade my kubuntu 10.04 to 10.10.Not to mention,the ISO image of the CD is this one :kubuntu-10.10-alternate-i386.iso.At the first run I choose YES for the prompt asking for internet connection or whatever, but I immediately realise that I have chosen a wrong option, so I exit and restart the upgrade all over again.On the second run, I choose NO for the prompt , then the installation continues until it reaches the 'fetching files' stage. It pops up and says "The upgrade has aborted. Please check your internet connection or installation media and try again. All files downloaded so far are kept."

I don't want to reinstall the whole system again because I want my applications;I don't want to use the updater to upgrade because I have a low internet speed .

Software :: No Packages Installation - Always Fails For Glibc Upgrade

Aug 4, 2009

I somehow landed into this situation (don't really remember how), but no package installation/removal seems to be possible for me. Neither apt-get -f install or autoremove seems to work.

When I do: sudo apt-get -f install I see the following:

- Configuring libc6 screen with <yes>, <no> appears.
- Click on <yes>.
- It fails with this error:

Ubuntu Installation :: Loss Of Internet Connection After Upgrade From 8.04 To 8.10?

Feb 27, 2010

Loss of internet connection after upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10 Like the title says, I lost my internet connection after upgrading my Ubuntu system from 8.04 to 8.10.I used the downloaded automated method. It appeared to work fine on its initial reboot into 8.10. But I noticed the internet icon indicated loss of connection. Even so, I was still able to browse the net through Firefox. But then when I rebooted the next day the opposite was true: the connection icon indicated connection, but Firefox would not actually connect, nor would update manager. It has been like this since. This is a dual boot machine, and the Windows XP Pro side still connects to the internet as usual, no problems.So how can I make my new 8.10 system connect to the internet?

I use a Motorola SB4200 cable modem

Ubuntu :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 Fails - Broken Packages

Oct 12, 2010

I was updating from 10.04 to 10.10 (was updating through update manager) after some time I got following message:

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

This can be caused by:
* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report. When I tried to run the command

ubuntu-bug update-manager
as above message says I got error

The problem cannot be reported:
This is not a genuine Ubuntu package

Following are the files in /etc/apts/sources.list
Then there are some files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d
their contents are
lucid-partner.list ---->http://paste.ubuntu.com/511417/
medibuntu.list.distUpgrade---- ------->http://paste.ubuntu.com/511422/

What should I be checking now?

Ubuntu :: Installing Packages Without An Internet Connection?

Jan 4, 2010

I am a new user to linux. I downloaded and installed ubuntu 9.10 on my old desktop to try it out because i have always liked the idea of linux but have never really found the time to use or learn to use it. having had an old dos computer i can vaguely remember the idea of using a command line to change directories etc. so i just decided to wipe out xp on the desktop and install ubuntu lol. Installation went smooth but then i ran into some problems.

Unfortunately i use iphone tethering for access to the internet but ubuntu will only recognize my iphone as a picture storage device. so i did some research and found that i had to download and install some packages to set up tethering on ubuntu. so on my laptop running vista i downloaded libusb-1.0.6, cmake-2.8.0, libiphone-0.9.5, usbmuxd-1.0.0, and some other packages such as ifuse and libgpod. they were all .tar.bz2 files or .tar.gz files. I put these on a jump drive and took the jumpdrive and put it into my desktop. what i was wondering is if there is a way to install these packages from a usb jumpdrive? or is there a simpler way that i may have overlooked to establish an internet connection.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrades Held Back - Two Packages - Grayed Out And Do Not Upgrade In Upgrade-manager

Mar 29, 2010

I'm running 10.04 and for several days now I get two packages that are grayed out and do not upgrade in upgrade-manager.

If I use the shell and apt-get I get the following message: The following packages have been kept back: firefox-gnome-support update-manager

The system is functioning well, but these 2 packages just linger as I process probably hundreds of lucid upgraded packages.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade RH9 To F10 - Install Fails - Installer Fails Media Check Due To "errors"

Jan 23, 2009

I am trying to upgrade RH9 to F10. I have downloaded dvd iso image i386. The SHA1 integrity check passes. The installer fails media check due to "errors". I did an independent verification of the DVD and zero errors found. Download was from Fedora's own torrent, so files should be verified anyway. If I bypass the media check I get the message : Running anaconda the Fedora system installer - please wait.....

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Net Install Works But Internet Connection Test Fails?

Jun 17, 2011

I just installed 11.4 via the net install cd. In the configuration step, the internet connection test fails. Why would this happen if I just installed opensuse using the internet? It looks to me as if opensuse can already figure out how to use my network card. I went ahead and skipped the test, but it still doesn't make any sense to me. Let's see if internet works once I'm logged in...

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Packages With No Internet / Is It Possible?

Mar 27, 2010

I have a general question: can I install packages in my Ubuntu, just using the live-CD but no network connection?

I broke my Ubuntu(9.10) and now can not log in, so I want to reinstall gnome, unfortunately I could not connect to internet, so I wonder if there is a way to use the live-CD as a source for the new software.

I would be really happy if I don't have to preinstall the whole system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 Fails?

Jan 10, 2011

In trying to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10, the installation fails when checking software channels. The error basically says that there are breaks, broken depends and unmet dependencies. Yet Package Manager shows that there are no broken packages and mostly everything is running OK except for the Suspend option which doesn't work in 10.04 on a good number of various laptops. I am using an IBM Thinkpad R51 laptop with 1.5 GHz and 512 MB RAM. I have never had a problem like this with any Ubuntu upgrade in the past. How can I get past this problem and upgrade to 10.10? Log files available upon request. If log files needed, Someone on Launchpad said it's because I have third party software installed. But, this never happened before with previous Ubuntu upgrades.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Without Default Packages?

I've just upgraded 10.4 to 10.10 and everything works fine and looks good but I now have the usual palaver of needing to remove some default packages that have been installed but which I don't want such as Empathy and Evolution.

Ubuntu Installation :: After 10.04 Upgrade XP Fails To Boot?

May 1, 2010

Installed v9 a couple of weeks back and have been causally mucking about with it since. I managed to get XP and ubuntu running as a dual boot system (which was an achievement ).

Anyway, i've upgraded to 10.04 - and already loving it. However... my XP o/s no longer boots. It use to prior to the upgrade. Now, when the XP o/s is selected from GRUB2, I just get a series of bleeps and a flashing _.

Now, I am a complete novice. I actually have no idea where to even begin trouble shooting GRUB2 (and i'm assuming its a problem with GRUB).

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 To 10.4 Upgrade Fails On HD 5770?

May 9, 2010

It seemed to upgrade the first round and looks like it booted back into Ubuntu (I had Purple background) and asked for updates and I installed them and on reboot I lose video when entering desktop. I see the initial purple Ubuntu loading screen, but when it goes away I lose video completely and my monitor says it's unplugged.

I tried the grub nomodeset without luck. I am at the desktop in safe mode. If someone can tell me how to edit a file to enable the graphics again, I'd be forever grateful. Sorry if this was answered, but search only gave me help with the Intel 850 graphics problems and not what I was seeking.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 9.10->10.04 Fails To Boot

Jun 10, 2010

Dual boot Windows XP SP3 & Ubuntu 9.10 on a single hdd, w/2 partitions. Booted to Ubuntu and upgraded online. XP boots fine, but Ubuntu, not so much; a msg about /dev not found, followed by a shell login prompt. I suspect a grub problem, but haven't been able to find a definitive answer. Since I can at least boot XP, I do not want to do anything that would screw that up and leave me with no bootable OS. I did the "upgrade" shortly after 10.04 was released. Is there a way to reliably fix this w/o possibly screwing up my ability to boot XP, the only OS I can boot? I have no Ubuntu 10.04 disk, as I used their upgrade online option.

Ubuntu Installation :: Automatic Upgrade To 11.04 Fails?

May 1, 2011

The Update Manager has tried to upgrade me to version 11 three times now, and fails each time.

First I get a warning, that probably isn't important: "Third party sources disabled

Some third party entries in your sources.list were disabled. You can re-enable them after the upgrade with the 'software-properties' tool or your package manager."

After the upgrade I get this:

"Could not install the upgrades The upgrade has aborted. Your system could be in an unusable state. A recovery will run now (dpkg --configure -a).

Upgrade complete The upgrade has completed but there were errors during the upgrade process."

The console has about six messages similar to this, all complaining about the vnc-e package:

"warning, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/available' near line 10992 package 'vnc-e': error in Version string '4.4.3_r16583': invalid character in version number"

Ubuntu Installation :: Fails To Boot After Upgrade To 11.04?

Aug 1, 2011

I just upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 but now all the kernels fail to boot. The resolution of grub changed and the older kernels are put into a 'previous kernels' folder. The most recent kernel halts at the message '* Stopping userspace bootsplash [ OK ]' and the previous kernels fail with the message 'Unlink after no-irq. Controller is probably using the wrong IRQ',

or show the background of the login screen with just a white box.

I think the cause is that I have an ATI graphics card (HD Radeon 3650), because on my 2 other computers ubuntu upgrades fine and they have NVIDEA graphics cards.

As a last resort I tried installing different distro's like Linux Mint but it also gived me the 'unlink after no-irq' message.
