    Non-functioning updates

    I have 2 updates in the list from Update Manager that will not function. Both begin "libwvstreams". When I try to run them nothing happens, the machine goes into suspended animation. How do I get rid of them (get them out of the list)?

    close update-manager and use synaptic to know about broken packages or else like partial updates

    Re: Non-functioning updates

    What if you say 'yes' and install those updates and again run these 2 commands.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Say 'no' to both of them.
