Ubuntu Servers :: Every Time Logged In Via SSH Got A Message Telling There Where Packages To Update Including A Security Update?

Feb 11, 2011

I was running 10.04 LTS and had decided to stick to the LTS versions as I'm now running my machine as a server and don't want to be updating regularly.Every time I logged in via SSH I got a message telling me there where packages to update including a security update. So I did a search to find out how to perform an update on Ubuntu server from the command line.What I found was to do this:sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get dist-upgradeAfter doing that I rebooted but now my machine gives me this message:

init: ureadahead-other main process (794) terminated with status 4Your disk drives are being checked for errors, this may take some timePress C to cancel all checks currently inprogressI'm not pressing C yet and leaving it alone to finish, but I noticed when the machine booted that one of the options for booting talked about Ubuntu 10.10, so I'm worried that I've updated from 10.04 LTS to 10.10 by accident?

Ubuntu Servers :: Which Command To Automatically Update Packages

May 11, 2011

I'm currently writing a script that will update the software packages on six ubuntu servers so I don't have to go in and update them manually constantly. Problem is, I'm not sure which command I should use to do this the most effective and safe way. Currently, I use sudo apt-get upgrade -y on my own machine, though I can see how this could be dangerous on production servers. I was in the IRC chat and I was told aptitude safe-upgrade is something I may want to look into. Is there a way I can only update security related stuff instead of everything? What do you guys suggest would be the best way going about this? Another issue I can foresee is certain packages that have an interactive prompt. While apt-get upgrade -y takes care of most of this, MySQL would fail with this as it opens up it's own prompt. Anyway I could make my script skip these types of prompts, so I can go back and update them later manually?

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 :: Fetching From Update Servers Fail When When Using Update Managers?

Aug 21, 2010

I have Ubuntu Karmic 64-bit installed. Update manager tells me there are updates available, but when i try to install them, downloading the updates fail and throws this error:


Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/e/eglibc/libc6-i386_2.10.1-0ubuntu16_amd64.deb

Consequently, a similar error occurs when I try installing Sun Java 6 Runtime.


Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/s/sun-java6/sun-java6-jre_6-15-1_all.deb Connection failed [IP: 80]

Ubuntu Restricted Extras stalls when it's time to download the Java package I tried synaptic, update manager, aptitude, apt-get, and they all throw similar errors. Then I also tried connecting to different servers, to no avail. So to check if it's my connection to the net that has problems somehow, I tried downloading the file directly through my web browser, and it works. (But it's not recommended, and it won't let me!, install the updates manually, right?) I tried searching for the errors on the net and in the forums, and they're all somehow related to proxy servers. I then checked if I'm using some inappropriate proxy settings, and everywhere it's all set up to connect to the net directly, which is, well, my setup.

Take note though, that I am able to install other softwares normally, i.e, using synaptic, apt-get etc. The ones I tried include Pidgin and Mplayer. It's just these updates and Java:


jeanne@jeanne-desktop:~$ sudo sudo aptitude upgrade
W: The "upgrade" command is deprecated; use "safe-upgrade" instead.
Reading package lists... Done

Ubuntu :: How To NOT Keep Update Deb Packages?

Mar 9, 2011

When I allow Update Manager to download and install security and other updates it saves the deb package files in /var/cache/apt/archives. I don't really need or want to keep these files. I seem to recall that in versions years ago the default was to delete them after installation. But the issue at the moment is how to get 10.04 and later to automatically delete the files after installation. Space is not a concern on my desktop PC nor my server. It is an issue with various virtual machine installations as they are limited in disk space and the more they take up the more there is to backup.

I have tried telling Synaptic to delete the files after installation but this does not change the performance of Update Manager.

Ubuntu :: Update Gives Error Message About Deluge

Jan 28, 2010

Whenever Ubuntu tries to update itself or if I initiate an update I can install every but Deluge's update.I get the following:

What does this mean? It suggests filtering broken to fix it. I do so and mark deluge for reinstallation but it doesn't seem to solve anything.

Ubuntu :: No UPnP Message After MySQL Update?

Jul 26, 2010

I just ran some system updates today. MySQL was among them. after rebooting. I got a message I haven't seen since I was first installing several months ago. I couldn't connect to the database.

At first, I freaked out because I didn't know what to do. I tried checking my passwords, but I still don't understand all the configuration for MySQL. I tried reconfiguring the myth packages, but couldn't get through the setup. It would just bounce me out after a few attempts because of incorrect password sets.

I finally figured out, from the logs, that MySQL hadn't logged anything since it's 'successful shutdown' after the updates. It hadn't even tried to come on. I started it manually and everything seems to be fine, but how do I get it to start at startup again?

Ubuntu :: Error Message With Apt-Get Update Command

Apr 21, 2011

I am unable to update apt-get and I am unable to install any software. The following message when I use the sudo apt-get update command:
W: GPG error: [URL] maverick Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 2EBC26B60C5A2783
W: Failed to fetch [URL] Hash Sum mismatch
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

When I for example try to install the gcc I also get weird feedback:
gcc is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
I thought it was that they where already installed on the comp, however, the computer keeps telling me that gcc is not installed. I am not quite sure what to do. I am using the latest version of ubuntu (10.10).

Debian :: Error Message At Each Update?

Sep 6, 2011

My computer: 3 year old cheapish box, Gigabyte board with onboard video and sound. Cat5 cabled to Linksys wired router to a cable modem. Debian 6.0 Stable. Network installation.

This didn't happen from the initial installation but I now get an error message each time I get the updates.

I first see the red update notification icon top right of Gnome desktop. I click on it, enter root password at prompt. Click the install updates button on the update manager window. The software progress bars show me the download progress but then I get the following errors.

An error has occurred and installing has been aborted. Error Message: subprocess installed post installation script returned error exit status 1

Error message: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured.

I cancel the messages. The notification icon then turns to the reboot icon. If I start the update manager again from the System menu it shows me that my system is up to date, so I suspect the update has taken place. But why am I getting the error messages. This now happens every time I see the new updates icon. Apart from that everything works fine.

I include my source list in case this helps.
