    Partial updates are often part of per-release testing. Moved to Ubuntu + 1
    Infinite diversity in infinite combination.

    Do this, in this exact order:

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get upgrade

    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get clean

    sudo apt-get autoclean

    sudo apt-get autoremove

    That should do it.

    (And yes, you can combine some of those command together with &&, but, let's keep it simple.)

    Reference for all things APT, so that you have some idea of what you just did:

    You can also make aliases out of those CLI update/upgrade commands:

    gedit ~/.bashrc in terminal.

    add the blue lines after the other lines and save the file:

    Code:
    # some more ls aliases
    alias ll='ls -alF'
    alias la='ls -A'
    alias l='ls -CF'
    
    
    # update aliases
    alias ud='sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get clean'
    alias ud2='sudo apt-get dist-upgrade'
    alias ud3='sudo apt-get autoremove'
    Logout and back in and then all you have to do is enter ud and your password in terminal to get your updates.
    If there is anything held back after getting all of the above updates, enter ud2.

    That will pull in upgraded packages that also need to install new packages. A new kernel is a good example of where you would use ud2.

    Then if you see it says you have unnecessary packages installed and it says enter apt-get autoremove to get rid of them just enter ud3 and that will do the job.

    This is how I always get my updates and it works well.

    When using
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    also be very awake and look very carefully if some of package You might need are going to be removed...

    I hope we have not forgotten this advice

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2181769

    I have only once accepted the offer to run a partial upgrade when using the development branch. Never again! In the early weeks of the development cycle not all the repositories are open and we get a message about that. Later on in the cycle we get the partial upgrade message. Such is life.

    Regards.

    Lighten up kids, the OP is trying to sort out a fresh install.

    Just installed Ubuntu Trusty via Live CD
    If you have a better scheme on helping him out with his problem, post a solution, not some apocalyptic warning about taking a partial upgrade.

    On the other hand, he hasn't responded to any of the posts, so, maybe the world did end for him.
