View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to make backup link of './boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic'

June 29th, 2008, 02:31 AM
Dear all

I am a beginner user of Ubuntu 8.04 and when trying to install the update for the linux-image-2.6.24-19-generic I've got the following message:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.24-19-generic_2.6.24-19.34_i386.deb: unable to make backup link of `./boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic' before installing new version

I used the new feature of Ubuntu 8.04 to install it on Windows so I believe that this may be the reason (boot on FAT)

Any help will be really appreciated.
