Ubuntu Installation :: Gnuplot And Synaptic Manager Fails Package On Already Unsupported

Apr 4, 2011

we need to install gnuplot and synaptic manager fails because Intrepid is unsupported. I know we can update to a newer version but we cannot do it now (we'll do it during summer holidays). What's the best way of installing gnuplot (or some other aplication) on our systems? Should we download from sources and compile? Could we add some special source to our list and download from there?

Ubuntu :: Synaptic Package Manager Fails To Start?

Nov 23, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.10 AMD64 installed. When I try to start the Synaptic Package Manager it attempts to start and then quits. I have tried running it through terminal and get the following output.

roy@Bastard:~$ sudo synaptic
sudo: /etc/sudoers is mode 0640, should be 0440
sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting

I get the same output for sudo apt-get update & sudo apt-get upgrade.

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 :: 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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Software Sources And Synaptic Package Manager Won't Run

Oct 1, 2010

Whenever I try to run the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, 'Starting Administrative Application' appears briefly on the taskbar - and then disappears! And nothing starts.I tried uninstalling and reinstalling them in case they were corrupt, but the same thing still happens.These two seem to be the only applications that behave this way, so can anyone think of anything that links the two of them and may cause this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Skip Specific Upgrade In Synaptic Package Manager?

Dec 19, 2010

All of a sudden when I ran an update with the usual
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
I got an input / output error for a specific file followed by an exit with dpkg returning error code 1.

In this case the package (ubuntu-docs) is not exactly life threatening, so I would prefer any update process to simply skip that particular package and move onto the ones that are getting held up. I then opened Synaptic Package Manager where I located the erroneous package. I then unmarked the particular package (ie the blob in front of the package name was green, and the status line shows zeroes for all categories (broken, upgrade/install, remove). So far so good. I then found the 'lock version' menu item under the packages menu. I clicked it, and ran the reload thing. After that thought the package was marked for deletion however, and I once again couldn't get by this one bad package.

So (tl/dr perhaps), how can I make Synaptic / apt-get / or whatever to skip this bad package for real so that I can update my system normally going forward? (Why is it that the whole upgrade process is that fragile by the way? Surely there must the the occasional dud package upgrade that people want to skip, no? Having the whole process grind to a halt because of one issue seems border line paranoid to me. Of course on a minimal server installation where every package counts this behavior makes sense perhaps, but on a IMHO bloated plain vanilla ubuntu install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Synaptic Package Manager Vs Ubuntu Software Centre

Dec 10, 2010

If I want to install a software package, for example, netbeans for Java, it seems that there are two ways to do that, first is through Ubuntu Software Centre, and the second much fancier one is to do it via Synaptic Package Manager. Are there any differences in the end result? Which one is better?

Ubuntu :: Can't See Msttcorefonts In Synaptic Package Manager

Jan 24, 2010

Got Karmic Koala up on running on my main computer and have been going through Beginning Ubuntu Linux, Fourth Edition. It was printed during Jaunty Jackalope, but it looks like its information applies to most areas.

However, it says I should be able to find msttcorefonts in the Synaptic Package Manage, and it's not there. I double checked Writer and Times New Roman and the other true type staples are not there, so it's not that it was installed with the boot disk.

Has the name of the package changed?
