View Full Version : [ubuntu] Updates don't stick

September 21st, 2008, 07:10 PM
Ever since installing Ubuntu Hardy Heron I have been installing the updates regularly. Over time I wondered things like why Hal would be updated every single time. Eventually I noticed that Firefox 3.0 would be installed every time. The list of updates is now quite long and it takes a while. From what I can tell, every update is installed every time. They don't "stick" between boots. :(

Ideas? Comments? Funny jokes?

Can you run this command in a terminal, and post the output here?

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude upgrade

You could check /var/cache/apt/archives to see if the files you are talking about are archived there, if they are they don't need to be downloaded again.

Do you can any error messages when you do an update?
