    [ubuntu] Re: System Policy Prevents Changes

    I believe the lock option means your user is not an admin user.
    And being grayed out might mean you have no admin user.
    I do not see this for any admin set user, but do see it for non-admin users.

    You can remove the linux-generic-hwe-20.04 meta-package.

    Note that the system probably sees one version as 1.6 and the other as 15,
    so to the system 15 is bigger and newer than 1.6.

    [xubuntu] Re: apt error

    Mainline kernels are unsigned.
    If you want a signed kernel install the stable kernels from the normal repos.

    Are you in need of the mainline kernel for some reason?
    Are you testing kernels?

    [xubuntu] Re: apt error

    That's a mainline kernel which isn't available from any repo.
    You need to grab it from here manually:

    [ubuntu] Re: HVR-2200 Install help please....

    lsdiff is already in patchutils.
    I wonder if get means git, as the very next command to run is a git command, and none of the other listed packages are git.

  20. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 21.04 beta: firefox does not work

    Use apt clean or apt autoclean to clean out the cache.

    cleans the whole archives.

    wipes out only the older versions of packages,
    but keeps the latest.
