    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot install new program

    It says it did unpack grub-common, so that should have brought the scripts in /etc/grub.d/ back, but when building the grub.cfg it still encounters the same error.

    Can you check again what's in...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot install new program

    You missed the last command, but I already see which three are broken. I also see that grub-pc is half-configured, so that must be fixed too.

    Let's first try to get grub-common re-installed....
  3. Re: Noob question regarding the 18.04 LTS to 20.04 LTS upgrade.

    Neither have I in 14 years using Ubuntu, and yet the forum if full of such stories. It must have to do with some people installing random stuff from the internet like chocolate bars. The only thing...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot install new program

    I don't know if there's no /boot/grub/grub.cfg and I didn't ask. I guess it's actually there and correct, or the system would be unbootable. I think update-grub creates a /boot/grub/grub.cfg.new and...
  5. Re: Noob question regarding the 18.04 LTS to 20.04 LTS upgrade.

    It is an actual upgrade. Just like your normal upgrades, except that it will upgrade all packages at the same time and the new packages will not only contain bugfixes, but will be new releases of the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot install new program

    Some time in the past you (or unattended-updates) removed the old kernel 5.4.0-42 and failed. Now the package manager will continue to try and fail until this is fixed by a human.

    Re: USB no boot filename recieved

    It appears something went wrong when creating the live disk. Did you check the .iso for errors after download (can be skipped if downloaded via torrent)? How have you created the bootable disk? Your...

    Re: Using 10.04 now?

    On my current laptop (from 2011) I originally ran Ubuntu 10.04. It booted in 23 seconds. Now I run Xubuntu 20.04. It boots in 35 seconds. Slower, but acceptable.

    Who would a hacker care about your...
  11. Re: Package 'browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash' has no installation candidate

    You posted in New to Ubuntu, suggesting you're new. Ubuntu 20.10 hasn't been released yet, so new users are recommended to stay away. Actually, even after release, new users are recommended to stay...

  13. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    Most of it looks OK, but the line in your /etc/fstab for your swap partition is a bit weird. That may confuse the file manager, that's supposed to list the various filesystems except those listed in...

    [ubuntu] Re: Install Ubuntu outside the PC target

    Can you temporarily switch the host computer to legacy mode? Then switch it back to uefi when installation is done and you've taken the SSD out.

    Depending on your flavour, version and settings there may also be a pop-up or a notification in one panel or another.

    And the other two commands? Note that I fixed a typo in one of them. I never see any mounts that I configured in fstab show up in any GUI tools (in particular thunar), just setting mount options to...

    Re: Using 10.04 now?

    But I am bothered about your security. I don't want your computer to turn into a bot that participates in a DoS-attack on my favourite website.

    [lubuntu] Re: Lubuntu 20.04 not starting

    You've got a Lubuntu live disk, right? You can install boot-repair from the PPA in a live session. No need for that big 800MB bootable Boot-Repair disk. The PPA version is more up-to-date anyway.

  19. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    The EFI and root partitions shouldn't be listed as removable storage (but may be listed as such while in the live session). To get some data, try
    sudo blkid
    cat /etc/fstab
    findmnt
    Run those...

    [lubuntu] Re: Lubuntu 20.04 not starting

    You should be able to get to the grub menu using one of those methods. It may take some tries. It's best to configure grub to show that menu always, so that you have no problem using it that one day...

    There are two small problems in the first command:

    [lubuntu] Re: Lubuntu 20.04 not starting

    Can you access the grub menu? There are a few things you can try from there.
