    Update problems

    Hi,

    i have a Compaq Presario notebook whit Ubuntu 12.04 LTD installed on, it's about 1 week that i try to update my sistem with the default updating window (I'm italian, i don't know the specific name in english for that) actually i have 773 updates waiting, cause it doesn't work.

    It open itself and show me the list of avalaible upgrades, when i confirme it, after a bit the program crashes and teels me:
    Code:
    installArchives() failed: (Reading database ...
    (Reading database ... 5%%
    (Reading database ... 10%%
    (Reading database ... 15%%
    (Reading database ... 20%%
    (Reading database ... 25%%
    (Reading database ... 30%%
    (Reading database ... 35%%
    (Reading database ... 40%%
    (Reading database ... 45%%
    (Reading database ... 50%%
    (Reading database ... 55%%
    (Reading database ... 60%%
    (Reading database ... 65%%
    (Reading database ... 70%%
    (Reading database ... 75%%
    (Reading database ... 80%%
    (Reading database ... 85%%
    (Reading database ... 90%%
    (Reading database ... 95%%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
    reading files list for package 'libglib2.0-doc': Input/output error
    I had tried to force the updates from terminal as below
    Code:
    sudo apt-get updates
    at the end of the screen it tells:
    Code:
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/psyke83/ppa...source/Sources 404 Not Found
    
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/psyke83/ppa...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
    
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    I know that "404 Not Found" code error means a problem whit the server connection, i have alredy chosen in the setting pannel "main servers" as source......... it still doesn't works

    I have checked the EOL of my version it is supported until April 2017

    Now I really have not others ideas...........please i need some help


    Thanks in advance

    Re: Update problems

    Try to disable these two ppas from your /etc/apt/sources.list file, edit it with gedit:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    and then write a # sign (comment) in the begining of the two lines wich addresses two these two ppas:

    Code:
    http://ppa.launchpad.net/psyke83/ppa...source/Sources 
    
     http://ppa.launchpad.net/psyke83/ppa...-i386/Packages
    save and close the file and try again
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update

    Re: Update problems

    Else from Software Sources uncheck those PPA's .Then try again .
    Google First your issue , if no solution then ask.

    Hi Raja

    @Alibdo
    Welcome to the forums

    This is a reference to software sources that may help.

    Re: Update problems

    Hi everyone

    and thanks to try to helping me, i really appreciate it


    @ claracc

    i have opened the source list as you show me, but i'm not really fitted into code language so i coudn't find the exact lines for the apps so I coudn't put # at the begining of these, so i decided to check the link posted by ibjsb4 and i tickeded off the apps lines from the software sources pannel.......it still doesn't working


    Actually something is changed but i don't know what this change means, if i ask to get update from terminal (whit these apps tickeded off) it runs without probs and at the end tells Reading packages........done

    But from software centre it shows no changes, i still got

    installArchives() failed: (Reading database ...
    (Reading database ... 5%%
    (Reading database ... 10%%
    (Reading database ... 15%%
    (Reading database ... 20%%
    (Reading database ... 25%%
    (Reading database ... 30%%
    (Reading database ... 35%%
    (Reading database ... 40%%
    (Reading database ... 45%%
    (Reading database ... 50%%
    (Reading database ... 55%%
    (Reading database ... 60%%
    (Reading database ... 65%%
    (Reading database ... 70%%
    (Reading database ... 75%%
    (Reading database ... 80%%
    (Reading database ... 85%%
    (Reading database ... 90%%
    (Reading database ... 95%%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
    reading files list for package 'libglib2.0-doc': Input/output error


    and the updates on waiting list are still 773

    What it means? Do I mess up anything? Do I get something wrong?

    Re: Update problems

    There are two parts to updating the system.

    1) we update the sources lists and determine what software packages are available to be updated. We do this in the terminal with this command:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    then we need to actually update (upgrade) the packages. We do this with the command:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    The Software Centre and the Upgrade Manager will do this for us. When we instruct the Update Manager to check for updates it will run apt-get update. When we confirm we want the updates the Update manager will run apt-get upgrade.

    You have removed those references to the PPA from your sources list. Next you run apt-get update. That was fine. Now you need to update/upgrade the packages needing to be updated/upgraded. You can do that with the apt-get upgrade command or through the Software Centre of the Upgrade manager. It is your choice.

    It is fine to use a Lauchpad PPA to install software but once it is installed we should disable the PPA in Software Sources. Then we will not get this error.

    Regards.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Re: Update problems

    i got a new problem
    ubuntu runs into a fatal error : Error to open the cache (E:Read error - read (5: input/output error), E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.).


    @grahammechanical
    ok i will try to upgrade it right now from terminal, but i run in the fatal error before read your post......

    i upgrade it and then will see if i got the fatal error again? or it's better if i try to fix it first?

    Re: Update problems

    I have found this interesting thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/newreply.php...2725&noquote=1, you also seem to have a package lists corrupted but the offending package in your case seems to be libglib2.0-doc.

    Re: Update problems

    @claracc

    I think you posted a wrong link, when i click on it i've been redirected on my own thread

    i looked for "corrupted package" and i found 2 threads about packages probs......... first one "Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg exited unexpectedly", second one "dpkg: error processing duplicity (--configure)".....

    i'm not sure these cases are the same as me, but my problem is about 'libglib2.0-doc' package, isn't it?

    Is it possible to disinstall and install again a single package?

    actually when i try to upgrade the system it tells me (I translate in english the parts that it shows me in Italian I hope you can identify the code)

    Code:
    (Reading database... 95%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, exit:
     list packages file "libglib2.0-doc": input/output error
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

    Re: Update problems

    Yes, sorry, you are right, I posted the wrong thread, the good one is: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2112029

    Please, see particularly post 8 in the thread, and replace all said for libgnome-keyring-common with libglib2.0-doc, which seems to be the corrupted package in your case.
