    Update Problems

    I just checked for updates and there was 2 items that I couldn't select. Both were related to VLC.

    I then did a partial update, which I was not sure what it was, but it removed VLC from the system as well as xscreensaver.

    I have no idea what just happened lol

    Any ideas?

    Your description isn't helping me come up with an answer. Sorry.

    I do updates from the CLI, so that any warnings and errors can easily be copy/pasted into the forums. Perhaps that would help?

    I did see that VLC was updated this week.

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade | tee /tmp/dupgr.log
    is all you need. This will replace kernels for your current distribution with newer versions. It will never upgrade from 1 dist to another. There is a different command for that.

    I don't know why it didn't explain it in the update, but I guess that is what happened.

    I went from 12.04 to 12.04.1. And for some reason it removed those 2 things.
