Ubuntu Installation :: Info Error "error Processing Install-info (--configure)" During Update
Apr 8, 2010
I'm using ubuntu 10.04 beta 1. when I try to update & upgrade I get the following error:
Setting up install-info (4.13a.dfsg.1-5ubuntu1) .../etc/environment: line 4: LC-ALL=en_US.UTF-8: command not found dpkg: error processing install-info (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 127 Errors were encountered while processing: install-info
so i cannot install anything because update-info-dir file is missing from /var/lib/dpkg/info/ .. I've searched for the last day and a half for a way to fix this, but nothing. can't even update dpkg because of this. so how do I bypass or fix this so I can install stuff (this is a fresh install of ubuntu 10.04 lts Lucid Lynx).
This is the error I got when I tried to update it today. On the top the icon for the update manager is a red circle with a white line like a stop sign. When I click on it this is the error message I get. Could not initialize the package information. An unresolved problem occurred while initializing the package information.
please report this bug against "update-manager" package and include the following error message : 'E:Malformed line 54 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse), E:The list of sources could not be read.'
After an automatic update from Debian I get the following error while starting a root terminal: An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for gnome-terminal. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly. Failed to contact configuration server: the most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-bus session bus daemon.
I've been trying to install the latest version of Emacs from source but I'm running into a trouble. The commands "./configure" and "make" work just fine. However, when I run "sudo checkinstall" I get a message saying that makeinfo is missing:

I have a problem with Transmission. After using it for over six months without a single problem, it suddenly stopped downloading. In the torrents that do no get downloaded, I get an error message Tracker responded: Unknown error (0) in the info window, tracker tab. But there are torrents with the same tracker that don'thave a problem and get downloaded fineThe logs don't give a clue about whats wrong either.I tried downloading those torrents with Vuze and I had the same problem. What could be wrong?
I'm trying to read our companies mssql ordertracking db using php's mssql_connect. I was able to make this work when using WAMP, and I had done so by adding the same user on both machines and then applying that user name to the WAMP service. Because of viruses and poor performance... I moved the site over to ubuntu server and I have to say i am very pleased, other than I cannot make a connection to mssql now. I installed sybase5 and can see mssql is available via phpinfo. It's using freetds. I know all my connection info is correct. I can ping the machine that has mssql from the new webserver. When i try to view a test php connection page it returns nothing but a null response, and my error log just says ERROR with no specific info. I did however find out that /tmp/freetds.log returns a bunch of jibberish. ubuntu forum isn't letting me submit the whole log, so i put it on sendspace here [URL]...
I did jack around with odbc_connect but still couldn't get it to work... I feel like I am close with mssql_connect but there is some user authentication problem. why it won't return any info from the mssql db. Also I was wondering if something similar can be done with ubuntu where i applied a user to the WAMP service on my windows machine which then was able to connect to the mssql db.
I have been comileing that kinect hack with the 3d video capture. i did everything, calibrated cameras and everything else but when i try to open the final program (KinectViewer) i get back this error: Caught exception Misc::File: Error opening file CameraCalibrationMatrices-B00363201643043B.dat in mode rb. From what ive gathered off the web it is not opening it because its in binaly mode or something to that affect. any tips to fix it? is there a way to change what mode im in?

Today my computer froze a couple times while running VBox forcing me to hit the reset button on the computer, anyways, now I am getting this error: Code: An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for evolution-alarm-notify. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.
Code: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See [URL] for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-0bZHOOZLeL: Connection refused) to be perfectly blunt with you, i dont know what ORBit is or what it is for and the file /tmp/dbus-0bZHOOZLeL doesn't exist on my computer (not even a symlink) the only network sharing apps that are running on the machine are SAMBA and IPP, according to synaptic I don't even have NFS installed on the computer.
As for evolution-alarm-notify, I don't use use evolution (unless I get a pgp encrypted email) which is highly unlikely that I will get one, I am thinking, if I remove the evolution link from my notification bar will that fix the problem?
I 've some problems with my current version 11 that probably has been fixed in the last version (14). I've updated other non-critical systems through the yum services but from 13 to 14. I've a productive workstation working on ver.11. Is there any possibility to update through yum or other methods through without risks of losses data information?... It's really complicated to backing up Mysql databases, web services and other hundreds things installed. I know, it's convenient carry out a backup but is it a higher risk to dump from 11 to 14 trying to keeping the information inside?
The update manager told me there were several packages to update, and I as usually said 'OK'. Then, it told me that some packages could not be installed. I ran dpkg in a terminal window, and this is what it looks like:

I cannot install Kubuntu 8.04LTS. When I run the Live CD and click to install it gets me the box that should show me my hard drives and possible partitions but the box is empty. I get the same when booting to the Live CD and clicking on install. I have had this CD since Kubuntu 8.04 was released. So not knowing what might be wrong I figure I will ask here for what to type in a command line to install it. I know it is an old version but it is the last one with KDE 3.5.
Dell laptop booting from a USB stick with a CentOS 5.5 minimum installation.
Uncompressing Linux...OK, booting the kernel. Red Hat nash version 188.8.131.52 starting sda: assuming drive cache: write through sda: assuming drive cache: write through mount: error 6 mounting ext3 mount: error 2 mounting none switchroot: mount failed: 22 umount /initrd-dev failed: 2 Kernel panic - no syncing: Attempted to kill init!
1. Does minimum installation not drop on a kernel or initrd with ext3 support? I can't imagine that's true, but have to ask.
2. The USB stick is single partition ext3. Maybe there is some limitation specifically related to USB stick booting that requires boot to be FAT16 or FAT32? Except the CentOS 5.5 installer refuses to let me install on either FAT.
3. How can I do the equivalent of lsmod on a linux installation that will not boot? i.e. I have CentOS x86_64 running in VirtualBox, I can plug the USB stick in there, so how do I get information on the USB stick's kernel and initrd if I can't boot from it?
4. Is it possible to rebuild the i386 based initrd on this USB stick, when the computer is not booted from that stick, with a system that's x86_64 based?
System Info: Dell Latitude i686 Laptop which has run CentOS 5.5 and Fedora 12,13,14 in the past, and boots from Fedora 14 Live CD transferred to a USB stick. So I know USB booting is possible on this machine, and this stick.
The process of creating the stick:
CentOS 5.5 i386 on a USB stick. Old Dell i686 laptop which has previously run CentOS 5.5 installed from DVD, and has successfully booted from this same USB stick holding transferred Fedora 12,13,14 Live CDs. CentOS 5.5 was installed onto the USB drive directly by the CentOS 5.5 DVD installer (running virtualized in VirtualBox 4.02 on Mac OS X 10.6.5.). No errors or complaints during installation.
For whatever reason, the installer did not do some things correctly. First Grub wasn't working correctly, I got that sorted out and have the Grub+CentOS splash screen, it finds vmlinuz and the initrd, and then I get a kernel panic.
Ext3 was built into the kernel and that's why I'm getting this message. I do not know how the installer would have dropped a kernel or initrd during instalation that that don't contain such a basic thing that obviously comes in linux kernel 2.6.18-89 EL.
Is there an easy way/place to get more info on the updates that the Ubuntu (9.04) Update Manager presents to you? I know you can highlight one and look below at the "Changes" and "Description". But how can you find a real explanation of what the update is? To give one exampe: There's a 5.0MB update called: openoffice.org-writer It appears to be a new version of the Writer program?? or is it just security updates?? Should I install it if I'm happy with the current Writer version? bottom line: where can I get plain talk about what these updates are?
When I open Update Manager and click "check," it starts downloading package information and then the following pops up: Could not download all repository indexes.
The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

I opened Software Sources to try and remove the repositories, but couldn't find them. Plus I'm not sure if I need to manually replace these repositories with newer ones- I'm still relatively new at using Ubuntu (made the full switch from windows in October 2009). Plus, whenever I do install updates with the update manager, the "last updated" time doesn't reset itself. It finishes installing the selected packages, and the message at the top of the Update Manager window reads "Your system is up-to-date. The package information was last updated 28 days ago. Using Ubuntu 9.10 x86_64
I noticed a red triangle at the top right of my screen today and I've been trying to sort out the problem. is says "update information is outdated" I used the update like it suggested but get this error msg. I'm new to ubuntu/linux so explain in simple terms: "Could not download all repository indexes. The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct. [URL].. 404 Not Found Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."
I'm using 10.10 i386 on hp pavilion dv9620us. The top panel keeps showing a red triangular caution alert that when moused over reads: "The update information is outdated. This may be caused by network problems or by a repository that is no longer available. Please update manually by clicking on this icon and then selecting 'Check for Updates'and check if some of the repositories fail." I had clicked this button a few times. The first time it installed a kernel update. The next couple times I don't think it did anything but check for updates.
I've installed Ubuntu five months ago, and updated to 11.04. About two months ago, a red triangle started appearing in tray from now and then, with this message: The update information is outdated. This may be caused by network problems or by a repository that is no longer available. Please update manually by clicking on this icon and then selecting 'Check for updates' and check if some of the listed repositories fail.
When I open the Update Manager to check for updates, it says: Failed to download repository information Check your Internet connection.
Details: W:Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found , W:Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
My connection is just fine and when there actually are updates, everything works great, so I don't understand why the red triangle goes on showing up in tray.
I've just receive my new Dell desktop and I used CloneZilla to move everything from my old computer to the new one. I made an image of the disk of the old computer and restored this image on the new one.
For most of it, it worked well: it was relatively quick, and I have all my old settings except everythings is going quicker. But the new system is not entirely recognized: the processors are correctly identified, but I can't see the new RAM memory: hardinfo, free or cat /proc/meminfo all seem to refer to the memory of the old system, not the one that is on the new computer.Is there a way to force the system to reinspect the hardware and 'discover' its new ressources?
