View Full Version : [SOLVED] Ubuntu 18.10 not updating correctly

Hi All,

I have noticed an issue with Ubuntu over the last 2 weeks and was wondering if anyone else had this issue.

Software Updater tells me as usual updates are available. I click Install and it updates. I check again and it advises No software update available afterwards, HOWEVER, the next time i boot the computer it asks for the same update files. This has now been going on for the last 2 weeks. Other than reinstalling Ubuntu is there anything else i can do??

My first screen when updating:

Then my second screen after it finally finds the updates:

Try doing it manually and see what happens. I have had the same issue a few times. In a terminal:

sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get upgrade
