View Full Version : [ubuntu] Updating issue

July 14th, 2008, 01:08 AM

It's not an error as such but I've noticed a distinct lack of updates being installed on my Ubuntu 8.04 system. Whenever I run sudo apt-get update no error messages occur, and yet it has recently stopped finding updates altogether.

Can someone please help me?

Go to System->Administration->Software Sources and make sure you have enabled the repositories that you want. I prefer having the 4 top checkboxes enabled. Under the Updates tab you should enable hardy-security and hardy-updates

Thank you very much.

It seems that the Hardy Updates boxes weren't checked. Now I've got 256 updates to install...
