Running Ubuntu 14.041 x64 (upgraded from 12.04) on Dell Latitude E600 series.
When I try to apply recommended updates - specifically those under 'Ubuntu base' I get the error:
(Window title: Debconf on mymachinename)
At the same time, in the details of the Software Updater window, I show
An attempt to commit /etc changes to bzr failed.
You may manually resolve the issues with the uncommitted changes before continuing.
Any ideas on how to proceed would be much appreciated - happy to do the work but just not sure what 'the work' is. For example, I'm not familiar with bzr (I know it's a version control utility used by Ubuntu for updates and such).
bzr: warning: skipping /etc/X11/core (larger than add.maximum_file_size of 20000000 bytes)
Committing to: /etc/  - Stage 1/5
bzr: ERROR: No changes to commit. Please 'bzr add' the files you want to commit, or use --unchanged to force an empty commit.
Thanks in advance!
