    Re: Broadcom BCM4311: Network works but fails

    Thank You my sir! I was away for a few days dealing with the Estonian local WorldSkills 2013 and where I used their computers. Coming back home everything seems to be just fine, even transmissin is working well. Now it's time to start troubleshooting why software updater crashes every singel time I use it.

    But really, Thank You for helping!

    Awesome!

    Is it Updater, Synaptic, apt-get from the terminal or all three?

    Updater alone. Might have something to do with software center not doing anything when I click install (but still making the button inactive). It's total mystery for me that came with whole network problems as such. Still I think it might have something to do with some files in "to be updated" list. Now when theres oly 14 i can try by trial and error.

    Is Synaptic installed? Can you open it, mark all upgrades, click Apply and get them updated that way? We need to figure out if it's a problem with your software sources or the updater itself. Here is what my software sources look like and what I recommend.

    As said it in the first post, synaptic is the only thing that seems to work quite perfectly in this computer. But what really get's me confused is that both updater and software center stopped working at the same time. So it shouldn't be purely updaters software issue it has to be something connecting them both. Only thing besides sopurces that comes to ming is network again.

    I suggest opening Synaptic and re-installing update-manager and update-manager-core. Then try again. If Synaptic works, then apt sources seems intact.

    So, did reinstall and the problems are still here. Update manager changed to software updater and now when hanging (stops working but doesn't believe itself to be crashed) doesn't give any errors.

    Update manager/software updater says every time I start it "You've stopped checking for updates, updates are available from last check" witch is strange because I haven't stopped anything.

    We're pretty far outside my area of expertise. I suggest you ask over on General Help: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=331

    You may get some clues running Update Manager from the terminal:
    Code:
    sudo update-manager
    When I run it, there are no errors, warnings, smoke or sparks.

    I'll move myself over to general then - but big thanks to You! I can now at least use my computer.

    Thank You!
