    Problem installing update (Wayland EGL Platform

    After installing updates today I got a message saying that my Hardware would lose support in August, giving me the option to upgrade now which I selected. I got an error message before upgrade was completed which gave me new instructions to follow. My experience level is very low but I followed the instructions, Following are screen shots (I hope) of what happened:

    Re: Problem installing update (Wayland EGL Platform

    An hour or so ago I put in an install of Ubuntu 12.04.4 specifically to test this offer of a hardware upgrade as some have been reporting that running the update caused problems. In my case everthing went fine. But then again I was doing this on a default installation.

    The update to the Wayland EGl platform was that part of the hardware upgrade or was it offered afterwards? You need to run that apt-get install -f command using sudo.

    sudo apt-get install -f
    Have you tried it that way? And are you using third party repositories - PPAs? They should be disabled once we have used them to install the software.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    I don't know what this sudo is and I don't know what third party repositories are. It's taken me 20 minutes to post this because Firefox keeps crashing and when I try Chromium I get "Aw Snap" crashes constantly.
    I tried adding "sudo" to command in terminal and got this:
    bmacbn@bmacbn-Latitude-D520:~$ sudo apt-get install -f[sudo] password for bmacbn:

    When I open up the Ubuntu Software Center I get a message saying that nothing can be added or removed until the package manager is repaired and it asks if I want to repair it now. When I click to repair, it tries for about 30 seconds and then I got this message:
