Ubuntu Servers :: Sudo Apt-Get Install Fails (Size Mismatch)

Dec 10, 2010

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop fails and has been failing for the last two days, I installed both the lto and the 10.10 newest, starts out OK and runs for about 5 minutes then finishes with many 'failed to fetch [URL] size mismatch issues. This is the first one after many installs over the last two years. Is there something going on with the US servers? On closer examination of running sudo apt-get update it seems to be fine till it hits the pool directory on the server, lucid main and lucid-updates are fine, breaks when it goes past those.

General :: Disk Size Mismatch Using Df

Feb 21, 2011

When I run df command, the sum of free and used space doesn't tally up to total space. Now I found an explanation in this thread: URL...The amount of "reserved" space seems a little too high as OP of the thread had commented, but may be that's what needed. Now my question is is there a way to change/specify this amount of "reserved" space manually?Also is there a way where you can see the actual disk usage for every mounted partition including the hidden "reserved" space? Because sometimes this mismatch makes the output of df very confusing!

I am attaching output of df, and fdisk from my NFS server. The amount of reserved space seems to be close to 5% of the total partition size.

Ubuntu Installation :: Could Not Download The Upgrades (Size Mismatch)

Jun 19, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed and a few weeks ago I tried upgrading to 11.04 using "Update Manager" BUT I got the following error after a few hours of fetching all the files from internet except for one

Code:Could not download the upgrades

The upgrade has aborted. Please check your Internet connection or installation media and try again. All files downloaded so far are kept.

Failed to fetch [URL]

I thought there's something wrong with the internet connection in spite of that everything else works well.. I tried upgrading in different times in different days, I redid the process again today and I got the same error again. Is there any other way to upgrade or ignore this package?

Debian :: Aptitude / Size Mismatch / Weekly Updates To Squeeze

Jun 15, 2010

this is at the root of the problems I'm about to describe: Whenever I try to upgrade my Debian installation, I have repeated "size mismatch" errors that necessitate restarting the upgrade process. Since I'm using Debian Squeeze there are lots of upgrades to be done every week. Today, for instance, because I've not upgraded for a few weeks I have to download over 300MB of files to complete the upgrade. However, because of the size mismatch problem this download may well turn into something between 1GB and 2GB, as I repeatedly have to re-download files that were successfully downloaded in the last failed upgrade. What with my ISP limiting me to 7GB per month, I'm finding that merely keeping Debian up to date is using up most of my allotted bandwidth.

I've tried setting the Aptitude preferences not to "remove unused packages automatically", and not to "remove obsolete package files after downloading package lists", but for some reason I still find that files I downloaded in the last failed upgrade have to be downloaded again (and again, ...) whether anyone either knows how to avoid the package size mismatch problem (I can't change my ISP, which has a monopoly on providing internet to my area), or alternatively knows how to set Aptitude not to forget the packages it has downloaded successfully during each failed upgrade, thereby allowing me to avoid such a huge bandwidth usage on my frequent upgrades.

Ubuntu Servers :: Natty Apt-get Update Hash Mismatch?

May 22, 2011

I keep getting a very frustrating error after reinstalling 11.04 on a 64-bit server:

W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_universe_source_Sources Hash Sum mismatch
which follow
bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing.


I originally installed 11.04 on this system with the same disk so I'm confused as to what is happening. I have tried using different CD's and even installed of a USB. The memory test of the installer came back okay. The box has two PCI NICs that are recognized and functioning. The only package I have installed is openssh as this is a headless box. What makes this even more odd is that I have a newly installed 32-bit 11.04 server with the same procedure on the same network and it does just fine.

I hope I have been thorough enough in my search and investigation that someone can point me in the right direction. After reinstalling 3 times I am at a loss and I know 11.04 can run on my box without problem (as it did before the reinstall).Tonight I'm going to reinstall with the built in interface unplugged and the two NICs removed, I'm hoping this will prevent apt from bricking itself during the install, which is the only think left I can think of. I suspect the issue has to do with the nic despite it appearing to function properly I am unable to uncompress the archives in question on, my workstation, when they are downloaded on the sever but can successfully uncompress the same files when downloaded on the workstation.

SOLUTION: I pulled both NIC's and enabled the integrated interface and it is all working. I wonder why they didn't work though...

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Server Install Fails

Jul 20, 2010

Attempting to install 10.04 Server on an IBM Series X 232 server. Its an old server with dual p III's, 4 small drives and an adaptec controller with a RAID 5 array. The server is currently running CentOS 5.5.

The CD I am installing from is known good. I verified it after I wrote it and verified it again during the install process. The system boots from the CD, I accept the defaults, then it fails at "adding additional components".

Ubuntu Servers :: Clean Install Fails To Reboot

May 17, 2010

I'm installing 10.4 x64 on a Dell PowerEdge R610 RAID 1 and the install goes fine until I have to reboot the finish it. On reboot after about a minute it gives the error

Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
-Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline/
-check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
-check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
-Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/mapper/mysql1-root does not exist. Dropping to shell!

what to do and my co-worker who knows a little more about Linux can't get it to let him check any of the above common problems.

We're tried letting GRUB manually configure itself at the end og the install before we reboot and we've also pointed it to /dev/sba partition which is what should be the boot partition.

EDIT: in the code tag it's ALERT! /dev/mapper/mysql(one)-root.... the L and 1 look the same

Ubuntu Servers :: Install Base System Fails On 10.04

Feb 26, 2011

i'm trying to build a web server but I keep having a problem. Everything loads fine until I get to the "Install base system" part of the installation and it puts up a red screen warning me that the install has failed. My uncle gave me his ubuntu discs and even some different hard drives, but I keep getting the same problem at the same point of the installation. Here is the rundown of everything i did.

System #1 -
ASUS P5G41-M m/b with 4GB memory
Intel Core 2 quad q9300 cpu
two western digital 640GB hard drives

I was testing it out to run a raid 1 just to learn how to make a software raid array. its my first try at making a raid array. The first time i used ubuntu server 10.04 32bit and the system failed at the install base system point. I then used boot n nuke to clean the drives and tried 10.04 64bit. it failed at the same exact point. my uncle gave me 2 western digital 1.0TB hard drives and I tried again. I got the same results. At that point i gave all the hardware back to my uncle and he gave me a server board to try out because he bought it and hasnt touched it. so I built a second system.

Ubuntu Servers :: Install Fails At Grub Boot Loader

Feb 26, 2010

I'm using the RAID1 setup, which is configured in the BIOS, as it is a HP Proliant server. i have 2 500GB hard drives configured in a mirror. when booting the install, it recognises this, and deals with it fine.

The problem is, when it gets to the section of installing the grub2 boot loader, it just stops and gives me the "ubuntu installer main menu" where if i select grub boot loader install it just loops back, and if i select LILO installer, it errors, saying an installation step failed.

It has the option to skip installing boot loader, but then, can i get it to boot a different way? can i boot manually into the server install and then install GRUB and hope it works? can i install grub1 rather than grub2?

Ubuntu Installation :: Md5sum Mismatch- 10.04.2 Alternate Install?

May 16, 2011

I downloaded the Xubuntu 10.04.2 Alternate Install CD ISO file from http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/ubuntu-iso...10.04/release/

When I checked the md5sum of the downloaded file, however, there was a mismatch.

The md5sum given at both http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/ubuntu-iso...elease/MD5SUMS as well as https:[url].... is 209cfc88be17ededb373b601e8defdee *xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso but running the command,

md5sum xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso generated the following, obviously different checksum for me:

098674ad5a59f0115030c5c0c3973899 xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso

(It also took unusually long to generate the checksum- around thirty minutes.)

Is it possible that the file was corrupted or tampered with on the server?

Ubuntu Servers :: Squid Has "sum Hash Mismatch" Errors With Bz2 Files?

Sep 1, 2011

Ive been experiencing problems with my squid3 recently, i am using 10.04.3 LTS. Configured squid as always have been configuring since 8.04.04, but its not working as it should be.Ive been having issues with bz2 files, in my LAN when i try to do an apt-get update, it just says some indexes could not be downloaded cause of a sum hash mismatch.If you check squid log, for that kind of file it saysTCP_REFRESH_UNMODIFIED/206 Google around i read thats ssquid cache keeppin the files more than usual, so i add this hoping to solve the problem:refresh_pattern -i .bz2$ 0 0% 60 override-lastmod refresh-ims override-expireI dont know if thats well written or not, but it doesnt have solve the problem, and now squid log shows,TCP_REFRESH_UNMODIFIED/304but the same behaviour of the hash sum mismatch, please if someone could throw a ligth in here. The only fix to this problem so far is deleting all cache and recreate it every morning, which is far from a solution.

Security :: Defaults For Sudo - Permission Denied And Script Fails

Mar 18, 2010

I have a CGI script that when called runs another script as a different user. Yet when the script does run I keep getting a permission denied in the logs and the script fails

In the sudoers file-
Defaults env_reset
www-data ALL=(charly) NOPASSWD=ALL

For the full question-
When looking at /etc/sudoers there is the defaults line that you can add things to. When doing a sudo -L so that I can see what I can put on that defaults line. Can an individual user have specific defaults? Ones that don't effect the rest of the people in /etc/sudoers?

Ubuntu Servers :: PSSH - How To Use Sudo

Oct 24, 2010

I have a set of servers that I have to manage and I thought that pssh (parallel-ssh) would be a great tool for the job. Except that I can not see how to use that with 'sudo'. I can set password-less ssh between multiple servers for a given user. But I cannot see how to do administrative work if I cannot call SUDO as it requires a password to be entered firstly.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.10 - Can't Sudo Apt-get Update

Mar 16, 2011

I wanted to installed transmission on my buntu server box 10.10 tonite so from my laptop top i ssh'd into it...which took an unordinary amount of time.. went to type in sudo apt-get install transmission half way through each word at the terminal prompt it would just hang...had to wait then it would recognize my typing and i could continue....pressed enter waited a long time; then noticed i coulnd't connect to the repos?

So i manually (as in sitting at the box not over ssh) tried to ping google nothing....sudo apt-get update....nothing....

- i restarted the machine twice
-sudo ifdown eth0 /sudo ifup eth0

sudo nano /etc/networking/interfaces made sure it said


I have my router saved to assign to the machines eth0 MAC of 00:14:2a:e9:15:0b so i can always use my webUI w/o having to guess my ip ifconfig shows my broadcast running i dunno i'm sooo confused and lost scared...a lil' cold....kinda hungry..pretty tired....

I'm on cli no gui anyone ever have this?

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Sudo When X Forwarding

Jul 13, 2011

I'm trying to set up my mythtv backend on a headless box. The many tutorials out there tell you to run mythtv-setup from a machine with a display by x forwarding through ssh.


ssh -X username@ipaddress /usr/bin/mythtv-setup

The x forwarding works fine except that the first part of the mythtv-setup requires you to stop the mythtv-backend process which you have to do as root. It brings up a box asking for your password (much like is would if you just typed sudo xxxxxxx in the terminal) but it won't accept the password. Looking in the auth log it seems that it can't authenticate


Jul 13 11:21:08 server su[21869]: pam_unix(su:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=1000 euid=0 tty=/dev/pts/1 ruser=administrator rhost= user=root
Jul 13 11:21:10 server su[21869]: pam_authenticate: Authentication failure


Now I know that my account (administrator) can have root privileges because I can sudo xxxx to my hearts content via ssh in the terminal, but it seems to not work when it's being requested from a forwarded X window....

Ubuntu Servers :: JeOS 8.04 And Sudo Tab Completion?

Mar 3, 2010

how to get tab completion working with sudo in JeOS (Ubuntu Hardy) 8.04? Assuming I have the command '/usr/bin/svnadmin'. As a normal user I can type:

svnad + TAB
and it auto-completes as 'svnadmin'. If I type:
sudo svnad + TAB
nothing happens. My 'echo $SHELL' is '/bin/bash'. I tried enabling the following in '/etc/bash.bashrc':
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then


auto-completes as I'd expect. I think I once read that there's some kind of configuration variable for sudo that causes it to use a 'more secure' path rather than the current path in the user's environment. I can't find any info on it though. I'm executing the commands from my home directory.

Ubuntu Servers :: Sudo And Ssh Not Working After Upgrade?

Jul 27, 2010

I have a server that started out at 8.04 LTS was upgraded to 8.10 and to 9.04. When I upgraded to 9.04 sudo and ssh stopped working.

Fortunately I have a root account and can login as root or su to root.

I suspect this is the result of changes I made to nsswitch.conf and pam.conf to get winbind working.

I was hoping for a fix by upgrading to 9.10, but that didn't work. I want to upgrade to 10.04 LTS, and stay there but I think need to resolve this first.

auth.log reports failed password for ssh attempts and authentication failed for sudo. I am at a loss to determine where the problem is and how to track it down.
