View Full Version : [ubuntu] problem using apt-get

April 14th, 2012, 04:31 PM
so I bought a new laptop last week because my old one broke down. Now I'm trying to get Ubuntu up
and running again. But I'm having this weird issue with apt. Whenever I try to install something (Dosbox,
for example) using apt-get in the terminal, my system tries to download adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.228.orig.tar.gz. To do so it is trying to connect with archive.canonical.com.
Below is te output I get when I try to install Dosbox. Part of it is in dutch (I'm from Belgium) so I hope it
isn't complete jibberish.

There seems to be a problem with the flashplugin-installer and nautilus-dropbox. I have been messing
around with adobe flash player, because I couldn't get it to work. Now I can watch online videos, but
this issue still remain. I also can't get Dropbox to work. It always tells me to download the proprietary daemon, but I have no
idea how I should do that.

EDIT: Dropbox now works, I tried installing it using the commands provided bij https://www.dropbox.com/install and it worked!
And apparently Dosbox works just fine as well, even though I got the errors mentioned above...
EDIT2: So dropbox actually doesn't work. I closed the terminal where I entered the commands and the program stopped, and
the folders stopped syncing...

dino99, what exactly do you mean with this link?

The errors have disappeared when I want to install new programs. After I rebooted, I was somehow able to connect to archive.canonical.com, and the flash-plugin was installed correctly when I entered sudo apt-get update in the terminal. The nautilus-dropbox error disappeared after I manually intalled the daemon using http://dnasmith.com/?p=42. I also downloaded some dropbox configuration files using http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/installing-dropbox-ubuntu-9-10-a-772655/. After another sudo apt-get update, both errors disappeared.
I hope the problem doesn't return, and that someone else ill find this thread useful :)
