Ubuntu :: Cannot Install .deb Files Any More - Software Center Doesn't Start From Main Menu

Oct 31, 2010

Yesterday, I made a clean install of 10.10 (64 bit). Among others, I installed World of Goo from a .deb file, and it worked fine.

Today, I wanted to install Skype from the .deb file. When I double-click the file, I get a "wait" cursor for ~20 sec, then nothing happens. When I try to start Software Center from the Main menu, I also get the Wait cursor and then nothing happens.

I started software-center from the terminal and the software center opened, despite some warnings in the terminal. I could install some random application from the list. Then I tried to start


And the software center window showed, with Skype selected. When I clicked Install, there was an error message. Despite the "no such a file or directory" part, I am sure that the file name is correct (I tab-completed it).

This is the error message I received when I tried to install:


Here are the warnings I received when I started the software center:


There seems to be a programming error in aptdaemon, the software that allows you to install/remove software and to perform other package management related tasks. Please report this error at [url] and retry.

Ubuntu :: Software-center Doesn't Run?

Apr 17, 2011

I believe I have deleted a dependency package to Ubuntu Software Center for 10.10. I just don't know how to fix it. When I try to launch the program from the terminal I get a bus error, I've tried removing and reinstalling it, but this does not solve it. Any one have ideas of how to fix this (other than just reinstalling ubuntu)?

Ubuntu :: Software Center Downloads Won't Start?

Jan 7, 2010

I've been trying to download some software stuff off of the Ubuntu Software Center, but every time I try it tells me "Waiting for other software managers to quit", and just sits there at 0%. I've been waiting for 45 minutes for it to start the download of Pidgin.I looked in the Processes of System Monitor, and I dunno what other Software manager would be running. The only processes that are running are System Monitor... and then the process"software-center" under the Waiting Channel tab goes from 0 to "do_wait" to "poll_schedule_timeout", and its status goes from Running to Sleeping.

Ubuntu :: U10.10 Software Center Doesn't Install Anything Anymore / Get It Going Again?

Nov 6, 2010

I seem to have caused a problem with the software center in Ubuntu 10.10. When I pick out a piece of software and click 'install' I see it doing something (CPU goes up etc.), but the usual "fill in your password" window doesn't pop up and after say 10 secs the 'install' button in the software center returns to its normal state, i.e. as if I hadn't pressed it yet at all.

I am afraid this is related to a manual install (i.e. through apt-get in a terminal) I did some time ago (I was following an online tutorial to get DVD playback working properly) that probably went wrong (the installation process did get stuck at some point, when it hadn't progressed for a long time (>1 hour) I saw no other option than to quit the terminal). I don't remember exactly what packages I was trying to install though.

What would be the best way to get software center going again?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Start Synaptic Package Manager Or Software Center

Jul 23, 2011

This is what I get when trying to start synaptic:
E: Type 'ain' is not known on line 3 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/am-monkeyd-nautilus-elementary-ppa-natty.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.
I admit fooling around with trying to install nautilus elementary, not really knowing what I was doing, and now things are all messed up.

Installation :: Ubuntu Software Center Doesn't Open / Get It To Work?

Feb 18, 2011

When I try to open Ubuntu software center, it appears on the process bar for about 10 seconds before it disappears. I can't get it to start.

I have tried alt+f2 and typing 'software-center', didn't help. I tried reinstalling ubuntu software center in Synoptic package manager, but I got this error message: "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/software-center_3.0.7_all.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 1"

This started to happen after I reinstalled Ubuntu 10.10. After I did that, I got the 'modprobe: FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.8.custem/modules.deb, no such
file or directory.' error. Could these two problems be related in any way?

Ubuntu Installation :: Software Center Doesn't Instll Or Uninstall?

May 30, 2011

I recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my computer and all had been going good except for this little snag.here's the thing :whenever i try to install something using the software center, the file doesn't get downloaded and the progress bar says "applying changes" which obviously goes on for infinity.I read somewhere that another guy had been experiencing similar problems after installing "ubuntu restricted extras" (codecs) and he solved it by uninstalling the codecs.I noticed that even my last successful install was those codecs.problem is, my s/w center doesn't even uninstall them.i don't know any other way to install apps nor can i figure out how to reinstall s/w center.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Slow - Start Up Time Is 30 Minutes But It Usually Doesn't Start Up At All

May 4, 2011

I did a clean install of Ubuntu 11.04 64bit and the start up time is abnormally slow. If I start up the computer and don't press anything, the start up time is 30 minutes but it usually doesn't start up at all. It just boots into a purple screen, no splash, then it sits there and the computer doesn't have any loading lights flashing.

I had a similar problem with 10.10, but I assumed it would go away when I did a clean install of 11.04.

I can't get a read out of what's going wrong because when I press Esc it doesn't display anything, though weirdly it can sometimes get the start up process moving. I have also found that pressing enter really fast can sometimes help and something that seems completely oxymoronic, if I press the power button while it's starting up that can make it work, but nothing works every time.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Takes 30 Second To Start , Used To Be Instant / Resolve This?

Oct 16, 2010

My Firefox used to start instantly, or at least near instant, but since yesterday it took about 30 sec to launch. Opening subsequent windows is near instant, but once all windows are closed it would take a long time to open again.

When I open it up in a terminal, it has absolutely no error message, clean start up and shutdown.

I turned up the CPU clock speed from 1.2GHz to 2.0GHz and it doesn't seem to help. Other programs starts fine too, so I kind of ruled out performance issue.

Yesterday I also tinkered with compiz settings and also installed the cairo dock and some media codecs. But I can't pinpoint when does it happen exactly, I also struggle to draw any relationship if there is any. And if it matters Firefox is 3.6.10 and Ubuntu is 10.04.

Installation :: Ubuntu Doesn't Boot After Install / Resolve This?

Jan 5, 2010

I'm trying to dual boot 9.10 with Vista on an HP Pavilion Slimline (AMD64). I've tried both booting from a disk and using Wubi, and neither has worked. Booting from the disk takes me through the screen where I can choose to try Ubuntu without installing, but after selecting that, the desktop didn't load, the screen just went to black.

I decided to try Wubi, and it went well enough. Everything in windows worked, and upon rebooting, it was able to finish checking the installation. After one more reboot, I selected Ubuntu from the Windows boot manager, and then the grub command prompt appears. I can't seem do anything after that except reboot.

I have no idea what's going on with this computer.
