Ubuntu :: Wireless Stopped Connecting - Applying Regular Updates Via Update Manager

May 9, 2011

My self-built PC had a BT wireless adaptor in it which worked, albeit after a bit of a faff, with Ubuntu 10.10 in connecting to my BT HomeHub2.

When I came to use it last week it would not connect. I'd not changed any hardware but I had been applying regular updates via Update Manager.

Bearing in mind the "faff" factor, I decided to try a different (Edimax) wireless card but got the same result. Upgrading to 11.04 has made no difference either.

It does *try* to connect but fails, so I think the card is installed correctly. I've also tried a full reset on the HomeHub and the setup works fine with W7.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Stops Connecting After Update To Network Manager

Mar 30, 2011

I am currently using Debian Testing, managing my wireless connection with NetworkManager and the Gnome nm-applet. Both have just been updated: network-manager from 0.8.1-6+squeeze1 to 0.8.2-6 and network-manager-gnome from 0.8.1-2 to 0.8.2-4.On installation of the new packages, I have no problems. However, on a reboot, I can no-longer connect to any wireless connection. I am not prompted on start-up for the password to unlock the Gnome keyring and when I left-click on the nm-applet icon and then click on a network to connect to it, nothing happens.I do not think this is a driver or NetworkManager daemon problem. If I run "nmcli dev wifi" or left-click on the applet icon, NetworkManager seems to scan for wireless networks properly and returns a list including the one I wish to connect to.

Fedora :: Knetwork Manager With The Update - Stable And Robust Enough For Regular Use?

Nov 18, 2009

I'm running Fedora 11, and just did an update of the system. It looks like there was an update to the package that takes care of knetwork manager. In the past, I have played around with it, but it hasn't met my needs, so I went back to nm-applet, which works fine.

I'm curious about the update, and would like to see if it works. However, knetwork manager won't start as there is another network manager already running (there is a message about this everytime I log in). I can easily kill nm-applet, but logging out and back in causes it to reload, and I still get the message from knetwork manager. So here are my questions:

1) With the update, is knetwork manager stable and robust enough for regular use (the docs for F11 said it wasn't upon F11 release, so included gnome's network manager as the default network manager)?
2) How do I get knetwork manager to work (I presume this means I turn off Gnome's network management and switch to knetwork management)?

Ubuntu :: Update Manager Can't Update Security Updates / Solve This?

Apr 23, 2010

Libnss3-1d
xulrunner-1.9.1
xulrunner-1.9.1-gnome support

After click on install updates and entering password, a message says "Some of the packages could not be retrieved from the server(s). Do you want to continue, ignoring these packages? Yes/No.

If I answer No, this message appears:

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po....10.1_i386.deb
404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.31 80]

If Yes, it tries to download but immediately:

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po....10.1_i386.deb
404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.31 80]

It has always installed the updates with no problems, until these 3 updates remain in pending installation status.

Ubuntu :: Where To Get Info On Update Manager Updates

Feb 24, 2010

Is there an easy way/place to get more info on the updates that the Ubuntu (9.04) Update Manager presents to you? I know you can highlight one and look below at the "Changes" and "Description". But how can you find a real explanation of what the update is? To give one exampe: There's a 5.0MB update called: openoffice.org-writer It appears to be a new version of the Writer program?? or is it just security updates?? Should I install it if I'm happy with the current Writer version? bottom line: where can I get plain talk about what these updates are?

Ubuntu :: Install Updates With Update Manager?

May 18, 2011

I am relatively new to Ubuntu, so this might be an easy fix. When I try to install my updates with Update Manager I get this error message: p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } W: Failed to fetch [URL]..Could not connect to 172.16.30.51:3128 (172.16.30.51). - connect (110: Connection timed out) W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...tu1.3_i386.deb Unable to connect to 172.16.30.51:3128: (and it goes on like this for a while) Also, when I go to install software, I get this message: Requires installation of untrusted packages. and if I click OK, nothing happens. The software won't install. I have a feeling this is because I can't update my system.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Changed After Applying Updates?

Jun 18, 2010

So I just recently installed Ubuntu Lucid Lynx over my old XP system and I have been loving it so far. I did run into a problem though. Shortly after installing Ubuntu, it prompted me to install updates and I did so. After the updates had installed, my computer restarted and the whole desktop theme/look changed to a older looking version of Ubuntu. I really liked the look of Lucid Lynx and have been trying to get it back.

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Update Manager Not Able To Install Updates?

Jan 19, 2011

Installed Macbuntu on my new installation of Ubuntu 10.10. At onset was able to run update Manager with no problem. However after a couple of days and since I did the theme to make my ubuntu look like a Mac...it doesn't want to install any updates it receives. It says another program is running but I'm not running anything other than the Update Manager. Any suggestions as to how to fix this or should I drop the theme and go back to the regular window theme that came with the version of Ubuntu 10.10 I downloaded from the main site.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Stopped Worked (http Error 127)?

Jan 12, 2011

I have 10.04 installed and Update Manager has worked fine for months, until about 2 weeks ago. When I ask Update Manager to update its indexes, I get this error message returned almost immediately

"Method http has died unexpectedly!
Sub-process http returned an error code (127)
Method http has died unexpectedly!
Sub-process http returned an error code (127)

The internet connection is working fine on this machine. I have another 10.04 machine sitting right next to the problem computer, and Update Manager works fine on that machine. I verified that all settings are the same between the 2 machines in these areas

1. All Update Manager SETTINGS (including SOFTWARE SOURCES)

2. System -> Preferences -> NETWORK PROXY (which is a Direct Internet Connection)

3. System -> Preferences -> NETWORK CONNECTION

It appears to me that the connection to Ubuntu repositories is failing but I can't find anything different between the 2 machines.

Fedora :: Unable To Login After Applying Some Updates To F11 / Fix It?

After applying some updates to F11, I was unable to login. After putting the username and password in, the dialog would go away and it would appear that the window manager was trying to load. Somewhere in the process the mouse and keyboard stops responding. The HD activity lights flashes for quite a while but later goes out.

Hoping that F12 would help, I upgraded. The upgrade went well but the problem still exists.
