    Re: Server Update and Upgrade

    Those ULR's appear to be non-working. Can you try a different mirror?

    Re: Server Update and Upgrade

    Hi Still stuck on lock...
    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the list directory

    I'll try to redirect to another mirror, but not sure how to do this from the command line.

    Re: Server Update and Upgrade

    Thought I'd cracked it....
    Added the following (but edited to "lucid") to my sources.list
    deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt precise main restricted universe multiverse
    deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt precise-updates main restricted universe multiverse
    deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt precise-backports main restricted universe multiverse
    deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt precise-security main restricted universe multiverse
    Then ran
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf immediately followed by sudo apt-get update. It scrolled thru reams of updates before sticking on
    Get: 71 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com lucid-backports/multiverse Packages [1,378B]
    Get: 72 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com lucid-backports/main Sources [9,423B]
    Get: 73 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com lucid-backports/restricted Sources [14B]
    Get: 74 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com lucid-backports/universe Sources [24.1kB]
    Get: 75 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com lucid-backports/multiverse Sources [1,633B]
    99% [10 Translation-en_GB bzip2 0B]

    This looks more like some kind of time out than anything else???

    Re: Server Update and Upgrade

    Seems like this has died a death and I'm no further forward....there must be a comprehensive guide to updating somewhere?

    Re: Server Update and Upgrade

    why are you mixing lucid & precise ? Are you trying to break it ?

    look at your sources and maybe do some cleaning

    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    Re: Server Update and Upgrade

    Hi Dino99
    Many thanks for picking this up.
    My sources list is all lucid. The reason you see precise in my earlier post is that I copied it from another post and tried it since it was supposed to work with lucid as well as precise (with editing).
    My sources.list currently looks like this:- (the #V are the lines I currently have hashed out to try to resolve the problem)

    Any assistance much appreciated.

    Re: Server Update and Upgrade

    Last orders...can anybody help further?

    There are way too many half baked posts on updating. When I get to the bottom of this I'm going to write a comprehensive guide. Honest.
