View Full Version : [kubuntu] [SOLVED] adept problems

September 22nd, 2008, 04:10 PM
Hello! I am getting this warning :The APT Database could not be opened! This may be caused by incorrect APT configuration or some similar problem. Try running apt-setup and apt-get update in terminal and see if it helps to resolve the problem. Does anybody know how to fix this? With adept not working I am at a complete loss.

when I try to use $sudo apt-get update I get this :

sudo: apt-setup: command not found
rob@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update

It seems that my /var directory is full so I ran $sudo apt-get clean. it freed up 550MB. now adeptt works again. Is there anyway to increase size of /var directory?

A couple ways I can suggest but since I dont know your setup in that computer here is what I would do.

1- if i got some partition that is not used, then use that if its bigger or perhaps move /var/cache to it.

2- i will use gparted while booted from a livecd.
