    update manager not working

    ok, i have searched for similar topics and failed to find any - if this question has already been answered then could you please direct me to previous thread thank you.

    anyway MY QUESTION.
    when the update manager starts then i am only given the option of a partial upgrade - but the update stalls on the 'preparing to upgrade' part. i checked the terminal and this is what it said:
    Setting up sandboxgamemaker (2.6.1+dfsg-7) ...
    Cleaned old data

    The file is already fully retrieved; nothing to do.

    replace PlatinumArtsSandbox2.6.1/bin/jpeg.dll? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename:

    what exactly do i have to do to just get the update to continue?
    i really need help because i cannot find any help on this anywere.

    thank you for your time.

    Welcome.

    It is control+shift+c to copy from the terminal (or mark out the section you want to copy and press the scroll wheel on the mouse where you want to copy it).

    Re: update manager not working

    Have you tried:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    ? What message does it throw when you try updating via the Update Manager? Incidentally, what release are you using? Sorry if you said and I missed it ...

    Re: update manager not working

    Package operation failed

    The installation or removal of a software package failed.
    this is what it says now.
    it lets me start the operation now but i get this message when the operation completes.
    btw. the version is the latest.
    11.10 i think.
