Ubuntu Installation :: Get Update-manager And Synaptic To Agree?

Apr 24, 2011

Is it possible to get them to show the same result.

update-manager says I need 315 files @ 302mb to download synaptic says 315 @ 318mb (using "mark all upgrades" button, then going the summary via the apply button )

this is on a machine with a clean install of maverick without anything new installed/changed from the defaults. Are these the same 315 packages and is it just a discrepancy in the way they calculate the size?

I used "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -s --print-uris > upgrade.txt" to get me the same 315 packages, but unfortunately it seems the simulation switch (-s) stops it from actually printing the uris (which would include the size info) so no help in trying to establish where/what the discrepancy is.

This is just the 1st step in me understanding the whole process so I can do what I outline in my long rambling post [URL]

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager / Software Sources / Synaptic Package Manager Not Working?

Sep 30, 2010

It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.

I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager And Synaptic Error ?

Nov 10, 2010

Ever time I try to use Update Manager or Synaptic Package Manager I get this Error Message:

I have been wondering if I just need to do a fresh install. Am currently using 9.10 on a Compaq laptop which is prone to overheating and "freezing", usually within 2 hours. Maybe time to install 10.04?

Ubuntu :: Can't Run Synaptic Or Update Manager

Oct 29, 2010

I've been running Xubuntu for almost a year, and haven't had any problems with it up till last week, when Update Manager said it couldn't install a lib package. Several days later, I saw the update notif saying that there were 12 available updates, so I went to install them, and it wouldn't install any of them. Now, if I try to start Update or Synaptic in any way, they'll open for about five seconds and then close.

Ubuntu :: Can't Open Update Manager Or Synaptic

Aug 2, 2011

synaptic tells me: "you must manually run sudo dpkg configure -a to correct the problem"

update manager tells me the same thing but also that the software index is broken. And it offered a partial upgrade but it doesnt work or do anything just gets me the aformentioned error message.

I think this was all cause by me interrupting the last update process by pressing cancel, because it froze or something.

Ubuntu :: Synaptic Package Manager Crash Update-apt-xapian?

Apr 27, 2011

I upgraded an older system from jaunty 9.04 to karmic 9.10/ Following the upgrade, and about six hours of stable use, I ran the synaptic package manager, to pull in fvwm-crystal and a couple of other nits. Synaptic went into its usual tiring Rebuild Index while the resource hog update-apt-xapian ran away gleefully with the cpu pegged. for longer than I've ever seen it... about 15 minutes, and then the system crashed. and, I mean it crashed hard. I have not seen linux do this in years. Not just a seg fault, the whole machine just crashed (cpu, display, keyboard, the works). Restart and no problem, until I ran Synaptic (Rebuild Index. several minutes, crash).I played this game for a while; thinking the system might just might be overheating... let it cool down, and retried.same result. I tried running one last time, and this time pressed the reload (on Synaptic main panel) prior to the crash.it pulled in the repository updates and completed the Rebuild Index. (no crash)

I have run Synaptic several times since that. downloaded some goodies, and have had no further crashes (although, it does run Rebuild Index every time I start it.and update-apt-xapian pegs the cpu while this is going on. The question(s) I have are:

1) I was not aware that an apt these days can bring down the kernel (no panic, no logging, just down....) How is update-apt-xapian tied into the kernel that permits this vulnerability?

2) There appears (from searches) to be a problem with Synaptic or at least with xapian...?? What is going on with this resource pig..?

3) If I disable xapian and use sudo apt-get instead, instead of Synaptic, does this solve this resource problem?

4) Is there another forum area where this might be addressed besides general?

Software :: Upgrading Via Apt-get - Synaptic - Kpackagekit And Ubuntu Update Manager?

Apr 30, 2011

The new Natty (K)ubuntu has come out, but I haven't gotten the upgrade notification that I should have gotten. I've tried upgrading via apt-get, synaptic, kpackagekit, and Ubuntu Update Manager, none of which see any sign of it.

I've asked about this in several forums but no one has been able to answer me. So I'll ask two different and more fundamental questions, which perhaps someone here can answer: What is the mechanism by which those update notifications are issued? And what programs are involved?

Debian :: Synaptic/update Manager Causes Duplicate Scim Processes?

Jan 18, 2011

[rant]Ok, I've been ignoring this for a couple of months, but now it's gotten to me and I want to know what's causing it.[/rant] Here's my problem. I have scim 1.4-9 (latest) installed for Japanese input. It works fine. I have no problems with it. However, when I launch Synaptic or update manager a duplicate instance of scim starts.This is on Debian Squeeze. See below:

Fresh reboot:


scim-bridge 34.2MIB
scim-helper-manager 32.7MIB
scim-launcher x2 47.8MIB, 165.4MIB
scim-panel-gtk 153.2MIB

After launching Synaptic or Update manager:

B signifies before as above


B scim-bridge 34.2MIB
scim-bridge 34.2MIB
B scim-helper-manager 32.7MIB
scim-helper-manager 32.8MIB


It's not a huge deal, because when I close said programs, the duplicate process stop. I just find it odd because these are the only two programs that seem to cause it. Oh, and I'm using Gnome, if that matters.

Software :: Force Synaptic/update Manager/aptitude To Accept A Broken Package?

Nov 9, 2010

I forced the install of graph-tool package [URL]. Now it is of course tagged as broken, so update manager wont do anything. But I want to accept it, I know it is not really broken. (In fact, graph-tool_xxx.deb asks for libcgal4. squeeze only has libcgal5, so I am betting this is not an issue, as far as graph-tool is concerned.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Connect To Synaptic Package Manager?

Jan 1, 2010

Have a new Dell Vostro A90 that came with 8.04 and I have installed 9.10 from a CD that was mailed to me. I can connect to the internet with a wired connection, but I cannot connect wirelessly. When I've tried to install the broadcom driver by going to Synaptic Package Manager and hitting reload, I get a message that 1 of 15 packages is downloading, but nothing downloads and I get a failed message for each of the jobs. Any clues as to how to proceed from here? I am very new to Ubuntu.
