    [lubuntu] Re: Package Operation Failed

    Yeah, it's because you removed the 3.0.0-14 kernel so its headers are trying to install but can't because there's no 3.0.0-14 kernel.

    Fix it with

    Aye, apt-get already told you what was wrong:

    You're missing a closing quotation mark somewhere in '/etc/default/grub'. If you post it we can help you find the error if you want.

    Looks like lightdm just isn't starting when your computer boots. See if reconfiguring it helps:
