    My Ubuntu 10.10 gets no more updates

    Hi,

    My old Ubuntu box, now running 10.10, is getting no more updates since a few days ago.

    When I say "no more updates" I mean that when I try to get these via the update manager the answer is "there is none available", not that any kind of error appears.

    I think that it all began about three weeks ago; the update manager downloaded a kernel update (2.6.35-23) but it was unable to install it by some reason. In fact, my box is running 2.6.35-22 since then, although I know (I have another ubuntu 10.10 computer) that the kernel has been updated at least twice since then.

    However, I was getting some updates after this problem, although these were fewer every day. I get none since two days ago.

    I have made no changes concerning update sources etc. so a configuration error should not be the cause of the problem. In fact, the only administrative task I perform is to launch update manager every now and then.

    My theory is that, since my kernel is frozen at version 35-22, the updates that appear recently are not valid for my box, so they can not be applied and therefore not shown in the update manager.

    What should I do to get the new kernels and restablish the update process to a normal state?

    Thank you very much.

    Exclamation Re: My Ubuntu 10.10 gets no more updates

    I am getting this issue as well. I tried to update via the terminal with the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get clean
    ...which updated wine for me (progress!) but not anything else. I have not had any updates in about a week or two now.

    Please help!

    Applications > Accessories > Terminal

    Then type in this command

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

    I noticed the same thing.

    Op - go to System > About Ubuntu and what version of Ubuntu does it list. (Note: If you are running maverick, you may get an error saying that you are running 11.04, ignore it and just post the results, including that one.)

    Re: My Ubuntu 10.10 gets no more updates

    Hmm, yes. Wow. I really dropped the ball on that one

    Yea, I have 10.04, i'm terribly sorry for the mixup...but alas I am still not getting updates. Does it being 10.04 change anything that could be of use to me? Should I start a new thread?

    Again, sorry for the fail D:

    I have exactly the same problem than you, no more updates since two weeks ago. Before I had nearly one update each day, and now nothing ...

    Same thing here. Running Lucid, stopped getting updates 5 or 6 days ago. I have Maverick installed on VirtualBox and also not getting any updates for the last few days.

    Re: My Ubuntu 10.10 gets no more updates

    I have not had updates for a few days. It is not a problem. We only get updates when there are updates available. Before I had broadband I would run Update Manager every week or so and click check . It would often return a "there are none available" message. Now I have broadband Update Manager does a check soon after booting. If there are updates I get a message. If I do not get a message, I do not worry.
