I am trying to update using Update Manager and I get this message: Failed to fetch "Failed to fetch [URL]..404 Not Found" My system is 64 days out of date now.
I have looked elsewhere for an answer and some others have had similar problems, but I have not found a reason for it happening, nor an answer. I wonder if anyone can help me please. I have been using Ubuntu for several months, can use the Terminal if I have the right commands to issue, but beyond that have limited knowledge of the system.
I was so impressed by the screen-shots of 10.04 LTS that i wanted upgrade via the update manager( am using karmic 9.10).Everything went well with downloading the new packages till the point of installation of downloaded packages. Halfway through the installation power went off and when i restarted the system it was stuck at some point with the message
Code: mount: nothing to mount in /dev or something like that. Then i restarted the system in recovery mode and ran "dpkg" to fix broken packages hoping it would fix the issue.It did to some extent that i was type the problem here through the affected system.
The problem is i couldn't send the crash report the first time around and i can't get hold of it now.My system is somewhere between karmic and lucid ("About Ubuntu" shows as karmic and System Monitor shows it as lucid").So i how do i get a clean installation of lucid?
I'm trying to upgrade Karmic to Lucid. I open the update manager, click the "upgrade" button, and then again the "upgrade" button in the window that pops up. Then it just closes down. When running the update manager from a terminal, the only output is "Segmentaion fault".
When I run update manager, it gives me an error message saying:
This can be caused by: * A previous update which didn't complete * Problems with some of the installed software * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu * Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu if I click partial upgrade, it looks like it did during the upgrade, then says:
There are no upgrades available for your system. The upgrade will now be canceled. if I click close from the first "not all updates can be installed" dialog, it says:
It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first. running the suggested line gives the following output:
In Synaptic, fixing broken packages does nothing. Mark All Updates > Apply seems to work, but I'd still like to figure out why Update Manager does not?
Last Monday I upgraded the Ubuntu from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx in my laptop (HP Compaq volna 515), and I have no sound. Searching in linux forums for an answers, I've got that (as far as I understand) there's no unique solution for this problem.
This is my lspci code...
Also, I tried to clean up the pulse audio .. What is funny for me is that pulse audio and alsa, and the audio players seems to work normally (no error of device not found or something like that).. except that there's no sound out from the speakers.
Any suggestion to discover if the problem is drivers, kernel, packages, or hardware failure? more important, how do I get the sound back?
I'm currently upgrading my laptop, and it has completed the step "Getting new packages", and is now onto "Installing the upgrades".It says it is going to take another 2.5 hours, but I am leaving work soon and want to take the laptop with me. Is it safe to disconnect it from the internet at this point? I don't want to fudge up the install, but I don't want to have to leave my laptop at work all weekend (or have to come back and pick it up at some point).
I can't upgrade from Karmic to Lucid,If I try to use the update manager I get a message that says "Can't download release notes. Check your Internet connection". I've tried changing the repository and I get the same message, but I can log in to the Internet, and download and install any program from the repository. I also get regular updates for Karmic so the repository is fine.I tried the command line
~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Leyendo lista de paquetes... Hecho Creando �rbol de dependencias
I made the mistake of trying to upgrade my Karmic (server) installation to Lucid earlier today, after which I've been unable to boot into my server. The server is on OVH, so I can't watch it boot, but I am able to access all of the data from the filesystems via rescue mode. I ran fsck and that came back clean. I also ran the boot info script, the results of which are below.
I know my best bet is to backup what I can and do a fresh install, but I won't be able to back everything up so trying to get this working would certainly be more convenient. I'm sure I'm leaving out useful information, so let me know and I'll post it.
Code: Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010 Boot Info Summary: => Lilo is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda sda1: File system: ext3
using update manager, i allowed my karmic desktop at work to begin the upgrade process to lucid on friday afternoon... i ran out of time, and headed home for the weekend. somewhere along the process, the screen locked. after arriving back at work this morning, i cannot unlock the screen, or even switch users. other threads in this forum seem to indicate that i should've aborted the upgrade, but... i didn't know enough to anticipate problems, and i guess i assumed that given the lengthy estimate to complete the upgrade, i could just pickup the process again on monday.
in any case, cycling the power didn't help, so i downloaded the iso, and have booted to the 10.04 'trial'. i was hoping somebody could help guide me through resetting a password on the on-disk os from the live cd... i'm ok with reinstalling if i can preserve my account's configs & prefs.
I just upgraded a Ubuntu Desktop 64bit system from Karmic (9.10) to Lucid (10.04). There were several PostgreSQL 8.3 clusters running on that machine. After the upgrade, postgresql was not able to run anymore.
The package postgresql-8.3 was marked "rc" in dpkg -l I was not able to re-install PostgreSQL 8.3 because of a mismatched dependency. There was no warning. I guess i should have read the release notes, which i didn't. There should have been a warning before it was too late to turn back and upgrade postgresql to 8.4 first. I don't see how this is supposed to work, ever.
I'd like to know if this would be considered a bug, if it is known already and how to correctly file this bug correctly if appropriate (ubuntu-bug ?)
I have an HP Mini 210 and I recently performed an Upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 and noticed that the netbook is much more noisy now (and can get very warm). I am not sure wether is the fan or the hard drive spinning. I did a "top" but no process was high consuming. I also thought that maybe compiz could be responsable for it, so I disabled all the visual effects, but still no change.
I'm upgrading my machines UDTE-64 from 9.10 to 10.4LTS. 9.10 is working fine. I just want to upgrade to a current LTS release.Update manager showed the way on one desktop and I upgraded successfully.On another desktop and a laptop, update manager does not show that a new release is available. It's fair game to tell me to use the live cd so long as I preserve user data.
I run three Ubuntu machines - work, home, and a laptop. All were on 9.04, and I was able over the past week to painlessly upgrade the first two to 9.10.Today I fired up the laptop for the first time in a while and saw that it hadn't had the upgrade yet, so went to the upgrade manager. It had a bunch of package upgrades it wanted to do, so I let it. But there was no option to go to 9.10, not even after catching it up on updates. It just says the system is up to date. Clicking "check" again just gives the same message. It doesn't seem to know that there's a koala out there.
Settings on the update manager say to accept normal releases, so it's not an LTS thing. Yes, it's on 9.04 now according to /etc/apt/sources.list. Network connectivity is good.What might I be missing that I ought to look for?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and I'd like to know when does the update manager upgrade the system to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. I do not want it to do the upgrade too early,as this might cause problems.I heard they're going to release Natty by the end of April,when it passes the beta stage but it will take 3-4 months for the bugs to be fixed. Also,please answer my other thread,it has new posts: [URL]
I downloaded a linux kernel from linux.org to check what is the kernel is about, i clicked on make_file or make sth .. and in the same session i downloaded a program called login window.
Now the problem is that the system boots ok, it gives me a msg saying that system is running in low graphics mode, when i press ok i get a few options like troubleshootin or restart x or use back up configuration .. and nothing works .. when i press start normally it never stops loading .. i can see the terminal when clicking ctrl + alt + f1,f2 ... but when i press ctrl + alt + f7 or return back to the desktop ubuntu is still loading .. it never stops loading.
And after using ubuntu for a while i really hate windows 7 .. i have it on the system, so is there a way to fix this problem?
I recently got an iPhone 3g and have been trying to upload music onto my device with Rhythmbox because my computer exclusively runs Ubuntu (10.04 LTS, Lucid Lynx). Rhythmbox would show files that were dragged and dropped as being on the iPhone, and they appeared in the iPhone's folders, but they weren't recognized in the iPod player. I followed a variety of forum threads to try to fix the problem, but ended up creating a whole new set of problems with my package manager.
I get this error message before package manager opens: E: Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-lucid.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
And this message after I close the first error message window and the package manager opens: An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:
'E:Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-lucid.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.' Does anyone have any recommendations on how to fix this? If it isn't already apparent, I am very inexperienced working with ubuntu, so the more detailed the response, the better.
I upgraded to Lucid from Karmic.Im now using gnome but would like to get back to KDE. Sadly it seems that even with kdm and plasma-desktop packages installed, I run into a problem at login.If I choose from the downwards facing arrow on the botttom left of the screen, and pick "KDE".Then when I log in, it shows the first icon (a hard disk), goes black and plunks me back on the login screen.This is a Karmic>Lucid upgrade process and I wonder if something got borked in the process.
The title of the thread says it all. Don't know why, the update manager keeps getting 0B of 1B since yesterday morning. Found some other references to this problem but couldn't locate an answer to this problem. Does anyone know the reason why I keep getting this? Don't know if there are any updates released since yesterday, but can't find anything with this message.
I searched through a lot of threads on whether its safe to upgrade from a working Karmic install to Lucid via the upgrade manager. I found a few threads from around 1 month ago where some said it worked, others said they had problems with grub etc.
Does anyone know the current status of this? I would like to upgrade to Lucid but I don't know if its safe. Would it be better to use an install CD instead of the upgrade manager? Do I need to manually install grub rather than let the install program do it? (I think the upgrade manager doesn't give an option it just installs grub after the upgrade)
Update Manager wants me to update to Firefox 3.5.7. I'm currently running 64-bit Firefox 3.5.6. I'd like to update, but Update Manager says nothing about this 3.5.7 being the 64-bit version. If I upgrade from the UM, I don't know if I'll be getting 32-bit or 64-bit FF. How can I tell beforehand which one I'll get?
As stated on the title Ubuntu 10.10 does not appear on the Update Manager in order to do the Upgrade. I really don't want to download it and burn it on a CD in order to Upgrade my Laptop. My current version is 10.04 LTS.
The title pretty much says it all, the sound on this system was working fine until I ran the upgrade to Lucid. I've tried everything in the standard troubleshooting guide, the sticky threads and plenty of forum searches but so far I've come up with nada. For some reason Ubuntu refuses to see my soundcard, no matter how much I twist and tweak it. It's an Asus M3A78 motherboard with an on-board Realtek ALC1200 chip (snd-hda-intel). Here's most of the relevant output, hopefully someone can easily spot what's going on because I'm getting snow-blind staring at the monitor. code...
1st post @ LQ. Ubuntu user since 2007ish. Lots of PC experience... now vexed by upgrade from 9.10 Karmic to 10.04LTS Lucid.
The problem: random freezes whenever I boot into Lucid as user through usual Grub menu. The freeze sequence is: 1- screen stops, 2- mouse pointer freeze w/ no effect on click but moves freely and keyboard is useless, 3- screen blacks out for about 30 seconds and then returns but is unusable and 4- constant HDD activity for about 5-10 seconds. I have waited several minutes for a recovery of some sort but no dice. I reboot via on/off or reset button. Ubu deletes 2 inodes and then I'm off and running again.
If I boot through the recovery console there are no problems at all. The recovery console sequence: 1- select recovery from Grub menu, 2- at recovery menu select drop to root command prompt, 3- give root password, 4- enter 'gdm' at console prompt, finish boot up in my only user desktop (not root.)
I have not been able to find any log files that show an error message, but I'm not so tech oriented that I would necessarily know one if I saw one. Through many hours of browsing posts describing Lucid problems @ UbuntuForums (one of which has over 1,000 responses) I have found my '.xsession-errors' file (attached) is full of data.code...
Basically, the update manager pops up and... nothing happens. It checks for updates but doesn't indicate upgrade availability.Running other commands like apt-get distribution-upgrade also doesn't do anything.
I think the problem is the fact that I've installed a bunch of software from rep's and ppa's via ubuntu-tweak that are more recent than the ones in Ubuntu's rep, but I can't been sure.Also, I've deactivated all third party rep's and ppa's, but I still have a bunch of software installed via those sources.
