    I hope those messages are really not result of wrong permissions/ownership, but just a manifestation of running update-manager with sudo.

    Secondly, please reduce, compress and upload the new results of strace (tmp.txt) as described in that post

    Re: Update manager issues

    Hi

    Well i have to say i'm really not sure what is going on in your system.

    The second trace you posted looks different from the first.

    One thing of note is that it is never using the dbus apt interface. I would expect to see some references to

    Code:
    org.debian.apt
    org.debian.apt.transaction
    Can you post the output of

    Code:
    dpkg -l python-aptdaemon
    It's not often i say this (in fact very, very infrequently) but it may be a quicker fix to back up your data and reinstall as i don't think the people helping you in this thread are that familiar with update manager and nobody else more familiar with it has jumped in to help.

    Post the output of the above command first though.

    Kind regards

    Here is the post you requested:

    Since our last session, I purged and re-installed update-manager again, but nothing changed.

    I have been looking at the upgrade to 12.10, available on update-manager for the past few months. Would it be a good idea to upgrade and see if it clears up the problem? Or is it best to re-install from a CD?

    Your diligence in chasing this problem is much appreciated.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi

    Would it be a good idea to upgrade and see if it clears up the problem?
    You could certainly trying upgrading your current installation. You can do this from the command line.

    Close any open programs you may have open. Press CTRL + ALT + F1 at the same time to get to a console.

    Login by typing your user name and password. Then type...

    Code:
    sudo service lightdm stop
    The above command will stop X. Then type...

    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade
    That should kick off the update process and update to 12.10 for you.

    If that does not fix the update-manager issue then backup your data and perform a fresh install.

    Re: Update manager issues

    Matt,

    I decided to try the update to 12.10. I got as far as stopping X, but [sudo do-release-upgrade] said command not found, so no upgrade from the terminal. BTW, I used synaptic package manager to remove update-manager and associated files, so they are no longer on my computer.

    Thanks!

    Command do-release-upgrade is provided by package update-manager-core, so if you removed that package, it wouldn't work.

    Re: Update manager issues

    Hi

    There is another method you can use to upgrade from the terminal.

    Stop X as before. Then from a console (CTRL + ALT + F1)

    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/precise/quantal/g' /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*}
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    Re: Update manager issues

    Matt,

    I did your upgrade. It went ok last night, but this morning there was a big bunch of updates to install. They took 1:30 to install and then the system crashed. This message is coming from my IPad as I cannot get past the wallpaper page. The page is devoid of anything except the background. Also, i see references to 64 bit and I have been running a 32 bit system.

    Can you point me to a way out of this??

    Thanks

    donaldt
