View Full Version : [ubuntu] updates will not complete

August 25th, 2011, 01:14 AM
I have been having this problem for quite awhile. I can download a little better than half of the updates at which point I get the error that update failed. It tries to tell me I am not connected to the internet, which I am. What do I need to do here? Thanks. David

Run this in the terminal and post back the response in code tags:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade

I'm curious about this too. I had it happen when I was going through the update manager and it kept just closing and not letting me install anything, so I went in through Synaptic and installed what I could, it asked did I want to skip the "problem" I said yes. Then I went back into update manager (where there was only a few that hadn't installed) and installed what was left, one by one, and for some reason, it worked. I don't know what it was.
