Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrades Held Back - Two Packages - Grayed Out And Do Not Upgrade In Upgrade-manager

Mar 29, 2010

I'm running 10.04 and for several days now I get two packages that are grayed out and do not upgrade in upgrade-manager.

If I use the shell and apt-get I get the following message: The following packages have been kept back: firefox-gnome-support update-manager

The system is functioning well, but these 2 packages just linger as I process probably hundreds of lucid upgraded packages.

Debian :: Can't Upgrade - All Packages Held

Mar 30, 2015

Since I upgraded Gnash: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=115357 I can't upgrade anything. At least I think that's when it started.

In Aptitude, I have 176 "packages being automatically held in their current state", and 47 "packages being held back". When I updated the package list, there was a dozen or so lines that were yellow instead of green, but it ran too fast for me to read. I doubt that is important, but I try to give as much info as possible.

I'm running Debian Wheezy, 7.1.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrades Held Back For Weeks ?

Jan 29, 2010

On my 8.04 server installation, I've been getting this message from apt-get upgrade for a few weeks:


I thought this would be fixed with the 8.04.4 release yesterday, but alas, it was not so.

It's bugging me a bit that there are packages that need to be upgraded, but it's not doing it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Back To Original Packages After Upgrade/install?

Dec 14, 2010

I just did a fresh install from 8.04 to 10.04 with separate "/" and /home partitions. I really wanted a new 10.04 system to start from scratch and rebuild it again & differently. Instead I got a really messed up system. Is there any way to change it to a fresh new 10.04 install. That nothing has been added to yet?

This is very important because on 10.04 my video card won't handle all the mods that I had on 8.04 and my system freezes very soon after I log on.

Ubuntu :: Recurring Failure To Resolve Openoffice Dependencies - Possibly Due To Held Packages

Feb 16, 2011

Distro: Ubuntu 9.10 (partially upgraded to 10.04)

Terminal log below:

In addition, I was unable to uninstall libreadline5 (since I already have libreadline6 installed).

It appears that libreadline5 may be the source of this problem with dependencies.

Ubuntu Servers :: Dist-upgrade Wants To Pull In Irrelevant Packages

Jun 22, 2011

I've been running an overnight cron job for months on my servers which tells me what apt-get dist-upgrade wants to do.

This morning I was faced with it wanting to install 115 new packages including many (if not all - I can't face checking, e.g. firefox) which are entirely pointless on a server with no gui.

apt-get upgrade wants to do the sensible (in my mind) thing.

To save anyone asking, I've been using dist-upgrade because upgrade wouldn't report on pending kernel upgrades and, until I spotted that, I was due kernel upgrades for quite a while before I realised.

I presume this is caused by an over-enthusiastic depends or recommends somewhere but does anyone actually know?

Off to work now but I'll look further this evening so any pointers before then gratefully received.

All ok again now, the bug with language pack dependencies has been fixed - [URL]

Ubuntu :: Back-up Installed Packages For Total Reformat?

Oct 29, 2010

I just installed the 32 bit version of Ubuntu 10.10 and though I like it an all, I'd like to put the 64 bit edition in in order to use all four gigs of RAM I have installed... To my knowledge, 32 bit computers should be able to handle 4GB RAM but I guess my address but is too small.

In any case, I'm developing a Ren'Py game and for both it and GIMP and a few other apps I could really use that extra gig.

Quick cut: I would like to back up the programs I've got installed so I can re-install them on the 64 bit version. Most of the things I've installed I've gotten from the Software Center, but for the things I've had to type into the terminal to install, well I haven't logged them anywhere so I'd have to dig up on Google again.

Debian Configuration :: Upgrade The Installed Packages From The Packages.debian.org Site?

Jul 22, 2010

I have just installed Debian Lenny and was trying to upgrade the installed packages from the packages.debian.org site. when i asked synaptic to add the downloaded packages the would not appear, but when i checked the .xsessions file there are entries saying that the packages were being ingnored because they were either different versions, the MD5 did not match or even "can't find pkg". i have to use the local library to download the packages because i dont have an internet connection at home.

Debian Installation :: Remove All Sid Packages And Roll Back To Lenny?

Jun 7, 2010

I added Sid to my /etc/apt/sources.list, so that I could install KDE4 (as described on some random KDE4/Debian web page). However, I now think that was a mistake and it would have been better to attempt to backport KDE4 onto Lenny. Over time, more and more sid packages have crept into the system to resolve dependencies, and now my system seems a bit broken; 'top' won't run, complains about missing libtermcap which is there, my cron jobs seem to be ignored and so on.

So given a system that is a mix of Lenny and Sid, what is the best way to uninstall all the Sid packages and then get back to a clean Lenny install? Is there some way that I can list all Sid packages, maybe to a file, then use that to tell apt what Lenny packages to install after sources.list has been updated to remove Sid?

I kept a log as the system was built, of everything that had to be manually set up after the debian installer has completed when I moved from 32-bit to 64-bit, so I could just do a clean install of Lenny then reconstruct the system from scratch. However, would much prefer to use the package management tools to revert to a clean Lenny.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Upgrade 9.10 Packages

Feb 28, 2010

I have not been able to upgrade any of my 9.10 karmic packages for about a week now. I have attempted to do so using both the Update Manager Gnome tool and the terminal command "sudo apt-get upgrade". Using the terminal command gives me (at the end of the resulting process) the following:

"dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
" syntax error: unknown group 'Debian-exim' in statoverride file
"E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)"

I have tried:

#sudo apt-get update
#sudo apt-get check
#sudo apt-get upgrade

The first two of the above 3 steps work as expected. I get the reported failure message after the last (3rd) step every time.

The last thing I remember doing before I started having this problem was to upgrade Firefox to version 3.6 and Thunderbird to version 3.0.

Ubuntu Installation :: No GUI After Upgrade / Get That Back?

Apr 26, 2010

I ran an update about a week ago - I am not sure what update was but the update did not all the GUI to display.

Boot Sequence is okay but as soon as the nice Ubuntu image loads up usually the cool login GUI shows up after but instead I get a constant blinking console for a login.

I couldn't figure out what it was through logs and I didn't make a restore point so I took my info of the hard-drive and re-installed Ubuntu.

I ran into this problem again but this time I did not update anything. I had to log out of my account to switch monitors BUT I had Ubuntu set to automatically log my user name in when my finishes booting up (some option that is use-full). So now it is back to the constant blinking login console.

so what I got now is:
1) my computer automatically load my user name up
2) Switched monitors so I had to log off
3) After Logging Off I got a constant login console NOT GUI blinking like mad.
4) Tried rebooting and the issue still remains

Ubuntu :: Unable To Upgrade Some Packages?

Jul 23, 2010

I ran sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade . It says that 3 packages are not upgraded. Thet are linux-generic, linux-image-generic and linux-headers generic. I have never had this problem when using sudo apt-get dist-upgrade since it is supposed to resolve all conflicts and other issues with upgrades. Can anyone tell me how I can upgrade those three packages?

Ubuntu :: All Packages Not Installed After Upgrade

Dec 13, 2010

I have been running Ubuntu on my laptop since 9.10 by itself (not dualbooting Windows). I had no problems with it back then but I did notice that when I upgraded, not all the packages installed and I would get an error message saying so. I never thought much of it. The problem became apparent when upgrading from 9.10 to 10.4, I would get an error message everytime and the upgrade would be cancelled. This forced me to reinstall Ubuntu for both 10.04 and 10.10. As soon as I downloaded 10.10 I downloaded docky and chromium. Heres where my current problems arise:

- Docky (which worked in 10.04) wont work even after I download compiz.
- Every time I update the system, if i try to update chromium or anything else from google it cancels the upgrade.
- I tried using "sudo apt-get upgrade" in the terminal but I get
"Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened."

Ubuntu :: Apt-Get Upgrade And Available Updates For Packages?

Jan 22, 2011

I'm a bit confused with this: When I log on a server it says 6 packages can be upgraded. When I run apt-get upgrade though it says that 0 upgraded, 0 new installed, 0 uninstalled and 3 cannot be upgraded. Occasionally, when there are indeed more updates available than those 6 packages, upgrade works fine. I believe the server is up-to-date. Why is that?
