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 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 :: 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 :: 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 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 :: 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 Installation :: Recovering From Crash While Running Update Manager?

I was running the Update Manager when my system froze due to the failure of Karmic to support motherboards using the Intel 845 chipset.

Although the update did not complete when I rebooted and invoked Update Manager it reported that the system was up to date. How do I reset the system so that I can install the updates?

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop Won't Boot After Running Update Manager?

Feb 18, 2010

I'm a little bit stuck and in need of advice from people who know what they're talking about. I've had Ubuntu on my office PC, home PC and laptop for about a year now and never had a problem that I couldn't solve, until now. I'd not turned my laptop (Lenovo N 500 with Ubuntu 9.10 64 Bit using GRUB2) on for about a month so when I did on Monday of this week I noticed that I'd not updated Ubuntu for 27 days, so ran the update manager. After everything was updated I carried on using it as normal but when I tried to turn it on yesterday I get the following issue...

GRUB loads and gives me all the possible boot options. Whatever one I choose, I get the same results. It starts to boot (I see the black screen with the white Ubuntu logo) but this remains on the screen for a very long time, then it goes to a flashing cursor at the top left of the screen and it just sits there indefinitely.

I've tried playing with Super GRUB Disc but admittedly I'm not too sure what I'm doing with it. I've tried using the Ubuntu Installation disc as a Live CD too but with no joy. The main HDD appears fine when in Live CD mode, all my files are there etc.. Is this actually a GRUB issue or something else? It's like GRUB's doing its bit and then it's failing slightly further down the line.

I'm totally out of my depth here and really don't want to have to reinstall everything, I'm sure there's a simply solution.

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?
