View Full Version : Update problem on UNE

November 19th, 2010, 08:42 AM

I've recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my samsung N210 netbook, and I'm facing one major problem :
The first big update won't install. Everytime I boot UNE, I get a window telling me all these updates are available (for different programs and such), but if I click "Install" the window will just freeze. I can't seem to find a way to get it to work, or even close. This window will stay frozen and inactive until I manage to close it or turn the computer off.

If I click "cancel" instead, the window goes away as normal.

I have to admit, I'm a complete newbie at everything Linux, and I really think I don't get much of it! But I'm very eager to learn.

I hope you'll be able to help me. Thank you.

I sometimes have a similar problem with the update window freezing.I'll hit cancel and it closes,then I open the update manager and check for updates.After it brings up the updates I can click on install and it works.

Maybe it could fix itself after an update?
