Ubuntu Installation :: Sudo Apt-get Update Failure?

Aug 23, 2011

Can't seem to update apt-get. Can anyone help with this? I've attached a screenshot of the output of

sudo apt-get update After trying this once, I decided to verify that there was an internet connection. I pinged some IP addresses and almost each ping went perfectly. If that can be ruled out, what is the next step?

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Failure After Update?

Dec 10, 2010

I grabbed an old laptop (a Dell Latitude D600) and installed Ubuntu 10.10 from the CD.Straight from the CD, it worked fine, including a reboot. I then ran an update, and now booting gives me the following message:

Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word,

Ubuntu Installation :: Failure To Update Repository?

Aug 3, 2011

having somewhat of an issue when it comes to updating through Update Manager.

I get "Failed to download repository information Check your Internet connection."

details :W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/jonoomph/op...source/Sources 404 Not Found, W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/jonoomph/op...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Running 11.04, no major modifications.

I will try to be as helpful as possible.

also, I believe I have a few hard drive faults- I have reformatted several times, but I still have issues in the boot process.

Fedora Installation :: 14 KDE Failure After Update ?

Mar 20, 2011

I just completed the latest updates to Fedora 14 - I have mono and wine on the system as well - so they were also updated. Now the only screen I can get is the failsafe (bash).

How do I recover my KDE desktop? (I noticed there were some updates for the KDE as well). I suspect something has failed during the update (selinux was also updated).

Ubuntu Installation :: Failure While Running Update Manager?

Mar 26, 2010

While running the update manager my system froze and all that I knew to do was power down and power up again. When I first started the update said 18.5 MB and on restart it said 17.x MB. I restarted the update manager and it failed with errors.

The last message says "E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) A package failed to install. Trying to recover:" but no progress in 1/2 hour. If I try to copy the messages to the clipboard it says that cntl-c will abort the operation so I haven't done that. From the top of the "Details" there are about eight "Invalid archive signature" messages. I don't know how to proceed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot Up After Update Failure

Sep 30, 2010

This morning my update manager came up so I clicked to update. About halfway through the update an error message popped up & said to restart my system. I restarted my system and now have a black screen with the following message:

mountall: symbol lookup error: mountall: undefined symbol: udev_monitor_filter_a


init: mountall main process (344) terminated with status 127

I read around earlier & tried to use a Ubuntu disk and reboot but I have the same error.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron computer, it's just over a year old. I keep up with all the updates but unfortunately cannot say for sure which updates were taking place because I just hit the update box.

Fedora Installation :: FC 13 Boot After Update Failure?

Aug 10, 2010

I was having problems performing an update yesterday that failed on dovecot dependancies and after a few tries I removed dovecote (it wasn't being used) from the installation and tried again. Everything seemed to be going OK then the update (about 160MB) hung and the screen went black a few times and I think then shutdown automatically. The PC then fails to reboot and displayes the message "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" I have tried to get the PC to boot with the super grub disc but without success (probably my in experience) I have also tried a suggestion from one of the forums to start the PC with a live CD and typed su -c 'grub-install /dev/sda at the terminal again without sucess. I have looked at the files with the live CD there are grub, menu and kernel files there (some are in lost + found, b ut don't know wheer these should be so have not changed anything.

Is there an easy way for the in-experienced to repair the boot process ?

The PC is a pentium 4 running Fedora 13
There is a 200MB boot partition formated as Ext3
and a 19GB partition formated as a LVM with Ext4
There is a CD drive but no DVD

Everything has worked OK for the past year through two online upgrades.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Failure On .ICEauthority And Separate /home

Mar 26, 2010

I created a separate /home partition after installing Karmic on a new computer using this HowTo :


I copied all the files from /home/user using

find . -depth -print0 | sudo cpio --null --sparse -pvd /new/

On booting after the change, the new /home is correctly on a separate partition BUT during boot I get a message :

Could not update ICEauthority file /home/user/.ICEauthority

I checked and the ownership and permissions for /home/user/.ICEauthority are correct. The suggested remedy of deleting the file & waiting for it to be recreated doesn't work either. But when I compare other hidden files in the new /home/user directory, quite a few now have their ownership changed to root. & I am unable to connect to my external monitor because of a permission problem (probably connected).

Ubuntu Installation :: Power Failure During Kernel Update - How To Recover

Sep 12, 2010

I was updating the kernel and left the computer to let it do its business. There was power failure and I don't know if the update completed or if it was in the middle of it. Now if I start the computer, it freezes up at the login screen. I tried to recover from grub, by selecting "Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-21-generic (recovery mode)". There were no prompts for input after this. The recovery screen is not updating anything after:

[2.348886] EXT4-fs (sda1): INFO: recovery required on readonly filesystem
[2.349015] EXT4-fs (sda1): write access will be enabled during recovery
[2.577641] EXT4-fs (sda1): recovery complete
[2.578072] EXT4-fs (sda1): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
Begin: Running /scripts/local-bottom ...
Begin: Running /scripts/init-bottom ...

When I come out of that screen (ctrl-alt-del), the problem repeats.

Ubuntu Security :: Sudo Apt-get Update The Update Failed Because The Connection To The India Mirror Timed Out

Jun 1, 2010

I am from India, and I tried to update my Ubuntu system today. Code: $sudo apt-get update The update failed because the connection to the India mirror timed out: Code: [URL] Could not connect to in.archive.ubuntu.com:80 ( - connect (110: Connection timed out) I tried the update a few times, with the same result every time.

I had firestarter running at this time, and noticed that I would get new security events every time I tried an update. I checked the events list, and it turned out that the machine at the ip address (the in.archive.ubuntu.com machine, to go by the above error message) had been trying to make connections to seemingly random ports on the machine every time I tried the update: see the attached screenshot. I then changed my repositories to the Main Server using Synaptic, and tried the update again (from the command-line). This time it worked without a hitch, and firestarter did not report any unwanted incoming connection. why is the India mirror trying to open connections that the Main server apparently does not need in order for me to do the update? Should I (we) be concerned?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Upgrade To 10.04. Windows 7 Unbootable / After Using "sudo Update-grub"?

May 9, 2010

My current situation is I have two physical hard disks, one with Windows 7 (sda) and another where I recently installed Ubuntu 9.1 (sdb). At this time there were no issues.

Now after getting used to 9.1 I selected to upgrade to 10.04 from the update manager. During this install I was told I needed to upgrade GRUB which I understand is the bootloader and was told to choose where to install it.Now at this time I had no knowledge of drive naming conventions in Linux and there was no option to cancel the upgrade to look for help, so instead I followed the advice in the help box to simply select every device listed

The result was a fully working Ubuntu installation but at the cost of an unbootable Windows 7.Windows is showing on the GRUB menu but selecting it gives only a blank screen with a flashing cursor and no ability to do anything besides ctrl-alt-delete.

After a few hours of googling solutions including downgrading GRUB, there was no change and it seems that I actually have a version of GRUB on both drives. The one on the windows drive (sda) is the default loaded GRUB that shows Windows 7 but cannot boot it. The second GRUB install on the Ubuntu drive (sdb) is the one I am able to configure through Ubuntu but does not list Windows 7 on its boot list even after using "sudo update-grub"

Ubuntu :: Apt-get Update Failure

Apr 15, 2010

I've got this very strange problem in karmic. When I do "sudo apt-get update", the update process fails to download some repo files.

I'm pasting the whole output of the command here


If possible so that I can update my system. Due to this problem i'm not able to install libqt4-opengl which required for virtualbox.

Also, an off topic question, I can't autocomplete words in shell specifically after sudo apt-get and in some cases after sudo also. The autocompletion is working in all the other cases.
