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 :: Error Message - 280 Broken Packages

Jun 10, 2010

I am new to linux (ubuntu) and I really like it, but the same day I installed ubuntu in my vaio, it asked me to install the upgrades, and after I did it there is sign in my desktop saying:

An error occurred, please run Package manager from the right click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong,
The error message was 'error BrokenCount >0. This usually means that you installed packages with unmet dependencies

So I did some research and use the package manager (it says that I have 280 broken packages) and try to fix broken packages but it did not work. I had to learn how to use the terminal and I did things like apt-get clean all or update upgrade etc but nothing works the message still there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Software Centre Error Message On Packages Download

Apr 24, 2011

I am a new ubuntu user, I downloaded it because it was recommended over windows for programming uses. I am new to Ubuntu, and everytime I try and download something from the Ubuntu software center an error pops up saying:
"Requires installation of untrusted packages. The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources."
It does this for everything I try and download.

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:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/deluge-common_1.2.0-2~karmic~ppa1_all.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/pyshared/deluge-1.2.0.egg-info/dependency_links.txt', which is also in package deluge-core 0

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 :: 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.
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.1a _Squeeze_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20110320-15:03]/ squeeze main

Ubuntu Installation :: Printer Yields Only Error Message Since Update

Feb 24, 2010

Sometime during the morning of Feb 23, 2010, I accepted Update Manager's updates on both my desktop and my laptop, both of which are running Karmic and both of which have been regularly updated by Update Manager. Before the updates, which I think I saw included an update to CUPS, my Brother MFC-8820D printer had been running satisfactorily.

Since the updates, all the printer yields, in response to my attempts to print from either my desktop or my laptop, is the following six lines:
configuration error

Assuming I'm correct that CUPS was updated on Feb 23, is there some way to find out what the latest CUPS update involved, and/or how to return to a prior version?

Software :: Update-grub In Grub2 Gives An Error Message?

Apr 20, 2011

I have an old computer that I use for trying out software and other things before putting them on my newer machine so as to avoid irreparable damage. The machine has 2 hard discs; the first disc contains Windows and I wanted to use the second disc for Linux. I installed Fedora 14 on the second disc and followed this with Ubuntu 10.10.

After I installed Fedora I re-booted and had a choice between booting into Windows or Fedora. After adding Ubuntu I assumed that Grub2 would pick up both Windows and Fedora and add them to the grub menu but instead, the grub menu only contained the options to boot Fedora or Ubuntu. I tried running 'sudo update-grub' but got the following message:

"cannot access /var/lib/os-prober/mount/boot
Boot: No such file or directory"

When I had a look in /os-prober all that was there was a file called 'labels' and when I opened it it consisted of the one line "Fedora 1" It looks to me, who doesn't know a lot about grub2, that something is missing from grub and had wondered whether to re-install it or whether doing so would be jumping out of the frying pan into the fire.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Update Error Message About File Permissions And To Check Connection?

May 3, 2011

I had to register with a new username, because I could not remember my logon details and have since changed ISP so could not get details sent, anyway that aside to the problem.

I upgraded to 11.04 and all went well (hence posting here and not in the Upgrade section) and it is running fine, well until yesterday.

I ran the update manager as I usually do when first entering Ubuntu and it did an update but then gave me an error message about file permissions and to check my connection (which was connected OK).It has also affected the Software Installer, and now I can not install any new software.

Is this a generic problem with the latest update or is it just my Dell Inspiron 1545 please?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Error: Untrusted Packages

A few weeks ago, i installed Ubuntu Desktop 10.10. I installed several of my previously used programs and am now having trouble with the update manager. It refuses to download updates; insisting that it does not trust the source. The details in the error message indicate that the problem is with a package for Banshee Media Player. I am posting a link for a video I made that displays this problem. [URL]

Ubuntu :: Azureus Update - Error Message - The Folder <path-where-I-installed-Vuze> Is Not Writable

Aug 8, 2010

I installed Azureus from their site. It works well. The only problem is when Azureus tries to apply updates, I get this error message:

"The folder <path-where-I-installed-Vuze> is not writable. This will prevent future software updates from being applied."

There was a link the the Vuze wiki, and the problem is that I (or is it the Azureus updater?) do not have permissions to write to that directory, or words to that effect.

How do I apply the proper permissions so that when an update from Azureus is downloaded, it is applied?

The wiki offers this solution:


But this looks like something that I have to do manually, each time...

How do I set it up, so that the updater has the permissions and uses the proper password to do it automatically, when I restart Vuze?

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10

Ubuntu Installation :: LUCID: Downloading Repositories/Packages - Get This Message " Unable To Find Expected Entry Deb-src/binary-i386/Packages In Meta-index File "?

Jun 24, 2010

I did the UPGRADE from Karmic Koala to Lucid, and everything was going well. But now I've been having problems with the UBUNTU UPDATE tool for the last 2 weeks. Every time I try to do an update check on the packages, I get the following message:Failed to fetch http:[url]....Release Unable to find expected entry deb-src/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.I've tried changing the servers to MAIN and others, and still no way to solve it. I've also checked for other posts, but haven't found a solution yet.
