Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet After Partial Upgrade?

Mar 5, 2011

Ubuntu 10.10 offered me a partial upgrade, so I clicked to install the updates. No problem, everything went fine.

Then the next time I boot ubuntu, internet doesn't work. The loopback interface is active, but the ethernet interface is not.

I've googeled for a solution, but can't find any.

This is the second time in 1.5 week. The first time I rebooted ten times or so and internet just suddenly worked again.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Internet After Partial Upgrade?

May 21, 2010

Update Manager gave the following message:

Code:
Not all updates can be installed
Run a partial upgrade, to install as many updates as possible.
This can be caused by:
* A previous upgrade which didn't complete
* Problems with some of the installed software
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

[Code]...

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Do Partial Clean Install Rather Than Upgrade

Apr 14, 2010

I have a compaq nx7010. It started out with 8.04 or perhaps 8.10. I upgraded it through to 9.04 when that became available. I have not upgraded to 9.10 year, because I recall it took me a fair amount of time to get my system working correctly after the 9.04 upgrade. At a guess, audio went down, wifi broke, and that sort of thing. I am now finding that apps I use are not releasing new versions compatible with 9.04. And I see 10.04 is on its way, and I understand it is best to go from one upgrade to the next rather than jump a release.

Here's my question:
I get the impression it is cleaner and more stable to do a clean install as opposed to an upgrade. I've also seen many people expressing that view. I've always just gone with upgrading because I didn't like the thought of having to set my whole computer up the way I like it, again. Is there a way to do a clean install that will keep my system the way I like it? For instance, to not have to reconfigure every application?

I have my partitions set up like this:
ext3 /home
ext3 /
linuxswap

Just how much config related stuff is stored in the /home folder? Or is this purely user files? What is the consensus? Is it better to upgrade or to do a clean install? My intention is to have a stable system that does not require hours of my time to get sound and wifi working, with the latest release on it (so that I can run the latest apps).

Ubuntu Installation :: Not All Updates Installed - Run Partial Upgrade

Sep 29, 2010

I am using the latest Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid lynx. Sometimes ago while I am updating my operating system to linux-image-2.6.32-25-generic (2.6.32-25.44) with update manager, after downloading all the files it was running the installation. During installation suddenly my pc turned off, may be for some power issue. Then while I again start my pc and tried to restart the update process the update manager show me a message. "Not all updates can be install. Run a partial upgrade, to install as many as updates as possible."

This can be caused by:
* A previous upgrade which didn't complete.
* Problem with some of the installed software.
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu.
* Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu.

Then I tried to open the synaptic package manager. But it didn't open either and show another message which suggest to run the command in the terminal: "sudo dpkg --configure -a". And unluckily it wasn't work. and show the messgae:
"dpkg: parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0103' near line 0: newline in field name `#padding'".

Ubuntu Installation :: System Crash After Partial Upgrade 10.10?

Apr 7, 2011

I have a Dell studio running ubuntu for two years now. I had ubuntu 10.04, but a few days ago, the update manager started to bug me that some stuff don't work properly and that I need to to a partial upgrade. I postponed that for a while, and all worked fine, but I finally had sometime and clicked "yes", all began collapsing:

1) the update manager crashed while updating.

2) I rebooted and ran it again. same crash at the same stage.

3) I decided, god knows why, to do a full upgrade to 10.10, which also crasehd.

Now it won't even boot. It always get stuck at a line saying "no IPv6 routers present" or something of that sort. when I switch off manually the wireless switch on the laptop, the boot gets stuck a bit earlier, on a line that says: "laptop login:"

EDIT: I just remembered something which might be important: I had a hibernation problem on the upgrade to 10.04, so I played around a bit with that. now it uses libgcrypt, and I remember I set up something manually then, but I can't remember what.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Wireless/Ethernet After Partial Update

Nov 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.10

I am using an Intel WiFi Link 4965AGN built in adapter.

When I was prompted for a system-update I clicked Update and apparently something failed an only a partial-update happened. Now my wireless/Ethernet connections do not work. I tried enabling all Network Adapters but that option is no longer available in the "Preference/Administration" tab.

Note: I cannot access the internet at all on that partition so I can't download any updates from repositories.

OpenSUSE Install :: Only Partial Connectivity To Internet After New 11.2 Install?

May 7, 2010

After earlier problems with 11.2-32, I replaced the 8 year old MB with a new Asus and an AMD Athlon II dual core CPU, 4 GB of RAM. New HD. First install of openSuse 11.2-64 completed, but have not been able to update repositories and Firefox won't connect to any WWW server outside of the LAN. Errors are about not being able to download from repos, can't resolve address, yet from a terminal on the 11.2 machine I can ping download.opensuse.org, yahoo.com, and the DNS servers. But the Updater Applet says "repo not available:failed to download..." It appears some programs, including the Updater Applet, can't resolve download.opensuse.org while others can.

I've gone through the configs of Network Settings in 11.2 to make them match a working 11.1 install on another machine. I've looked at the fire wall settings (http is not an option on the pull down list), Checked the router settings, but that shouldn't be the cause since the machine with 11.1 operates normally from the same LAN.Another odd thing: Obviously can boot from the CD drive, but putting a data disk in, Dolphin doesn't show the files.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Connect To Internet After 11.04 Upgrade

Jun 14, 2011

I've just upgraded to 11.04 on my new desktop and I'm using a wired ethernet connection. My web browsers have stopped working (Chromium and Firefox) but my networking is working because I can still run Package manager to install new packages. The system monitor also shows network activity.

There was no proxy server set up before the upgrade. Does 11.04 require a proxy server setup? Checked and set to auto detect but made no difference. I'm currently connecting off my old laptop running Windows XP on a wired connection through the same modem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Doesn't Work After Upgrade

Jan 4, 2010

I just upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10. When I restarted, I admired the new login menu, then went to Firefox. I noticed that my wireless didn't work (it did in 9.04) Thinking I'd just need to reinstall the drivers, I plugged in the computer to a working Ethernet outlet with a working cord. I noticed that Ubuntu didn't tell me that Auto eth0 was connected. It didn't tell me anything. And then I went to Google and realized that the wired connection didn't work either. Then I came here on an iPod Touch and you know the rest.

Edit: And other devices work too on the network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Slow After Upgrade To Kernel 2.6.32-24?

Jul 27, 2010

I have just built a PC based around an i7-860 and Asus P7P55D mobo. It was running fine until the big update that happened today and now the internet is like treacle. I did the same update to my other (different hardware) PC and all is fine with it.

When I load the earlier 2.6.32-21 kernel instead of 2.6.32-24, the new system works as it should and the Internet is very fast. This suggests to me that the kernel update is the problem, most likely the NIC driver. This motherboard has a Realtek 8112L NIC fitted.

Has anyone else had this issue and what is the best way around it other than loading the older kernel and hoping that the next update will fix it?

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Get Wired Or Wireless Internet To Work After Upgrade To 10.10?

Dec 14, 2010

today i installed ubuntu 10.10 on my hp mini 210 netbook. previously i had ubuntu netbook remix running and had no problem accessing the internet both wired and wireless; however, since installing 10.10 i have been searching for a solution for the last six hours but have been unable to get either to work.

as far as hardware is concerned i have a broadband bcm4313 802.11 network controller and am running through a linksys router which i know to be working because i have 4 other computers connected to it all with internet access. i checked ifconfig and a lo conection was listed but no eth0. i also tried downloading a broadband tar.gz driver but dont have any packages to build it and cant get any since the computer has no internet. i assume wired is easiest to setup so lets start there even though i use wireless 90% of the time. im new to linux so please dont expect me to know any terminal commands.

Under Fedora 9 everything was fine. Now, when loading web sites, about half the time, there is a pause of several seconds before the page starts with a message in the status bar of "Looking up <domain name>". Seems like a problem with name resolution. Half the time, this isn't an issue ... wierd.

Ubuntu Installation :: Partial - XP Partition - Do Not Have The Key

Jan 29, 2011

I have an older Dell Inspiron e1505. The hard-drive went bad years ago and I look to revive it. I purchased a new hard-drive and proceeded to install Windows XP Pro that I have a partial install of XP professional but do not have the key. Microsoft explained because I cannot find I would have to buy a new one instead of keeping my key within their Microsoft store. So instead of purchasing a new key I would like to install the latest version of Ubuntu and go the Linux route.

I downloaded the latest version(non pc I believe) and have it booting of the Cdrom. I am now stuck because it bypasses the cdrom /disk and starts to load XP home again. Will continue to research as I move forward but would definitely like some pointers on what I can do as far as removing the partial install of Windows XP home.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To The Internet As Per Normal And Use Any Internet Application?

Feb 1, 2010

On this box I have Two seperate Ubuntu installations. Recently in both I seem to be having the same problem. I initially can connect to the internet as per normal and use any internet application. But after a period of time, sometimes just minutes, sometimes hours, even though the icon says connected, I cant update pages or send emails etc because there is no actual connection. My Physical connection is good I know - My Ubuntu laptop and Windows gamming PC connect fine during this period. So

Does this suggest an intermittent hardware fault or is there some thing in Ubuntu I can check to make sure that it is setup correctly and nothing has been corrupted? I am a lay PC person - I dont really want to be command prompting - Plug & Play and Point & Click is my limit.
