View Full Version : [ubuntu] failed to detect canonical device of aufs

July 16th, 2011, 09:56 AM
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 usb installation. When I tried to update from terminal I got this message "failed to detect canonical device of aufs". I have Fujitsu Siemens V5505 (Intel processor T5550, Intel 965 chip set and other hardware is pretty standard as on any other Fujitsu).

Copy-Paste from terminal:
