    Re: Update Issue - Firefox problem

    No problem. Sorry I didn't explain.

    If you want to bring your thread up to the top again so that it gets noticed, simply post with the word "bump". It's an acronym for "bring up my post". General rule of thumb: don't bump more often than 24 hours. Anything less is frowned on.

    But good luck!

    Try this:
    Code:
    sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/status /var/lib/dpkg/status_old
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    Re: Update Issue - Firefox problem

    First, undo the previously done renaming of the "status" file:
    Code:
    sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/status_old /var/lib/dpkg/status
    Then try following the steps in this guide (currently unavailable):

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Pa...otingProcedure

    Btw., please try using code boxes for terminal outputs and commands. Therefore, just highlight the concerned text, then click on the #-button in the editor.
