    I found my repositories.

    Do any of these repositories look suspicious?

    Type about:version in the address bar for the Chrome browser that works and hit enter. Then post the information here.

    For the Chrome browser that doesn't work, see if you have a folder like this:
    /home/your_name/.config/google-chrome. If you do, look for a file called Local State. (Yes, there's a space in there.) Open it with your text editor or however you wish and look near the bottom for something like "stats_version": "20.0.1132.47" and paste that line here.

    Alternatively, open a terminal and just type:
    Code:
    google-chrome --version
    (No need of "stable")

    As far as repositories go, I don't know how necessary medibuntu is nowadays. The xswat one is for specialised needs and should not normally be found on a computer running Ubuntu that has not given problems.

    My suggestion is that you can just untick them to disable them. That way, you can regain them if you choose by ticking them again. In any case, you can untick any repo that has "source" in it unless you examine source code.

    By the way, could you please mention whether you are the sole user of the computer or are others allowed to use it and install software on it?

    By the way, why do you have Custom Server? How did it get there?

    I then re-installed chrome to both computers.

    The old 2003 computer is still able to use the Chrome browser
    with no problems.


    But my newer computer has same problem even with new installation
    of Chrome.

    So something installed by the update manager must be stopping
    the Chrome from loading.
    On the newer computer, switch Chrome off and check that no Chrome process is running. Then rename
    Code:
    /home/user-name/.config/google-chrome
    to something else. Now see if Chrome works. If it does, you won't have any of your old bookmarks, extensions and history, but that's for later.

    Re: Virtual Package

    Sorry for delay....

    internet was down this morning.

    Att DSL would not allow me access to net
    unless I had Windows and Internet Explorer.
    They said my modem password did not match theirs.
    I had to call ATT to get back online.


    Anyway here is snapshot...ChromeVersion.png

    Here is Chrome version..ChromeVersion.png

    Thank you for your reply and all of your help.
    I am the sole user of this computer. No one else
    has ever used it for anything. I have been on other
    websites that had Ubuntu programs like conty and
    I probably unknowingly downloaded and added repositories
    that I shouldn't have.

    I will try to un-tick medbuntu and the other that you mentioned.

    Also, I don't know anything about "custom server".
    What is that for?

    Thank you for your time

    Best regards

    Re: Virtual Package

    Something interesting...
    Ubuntu Software Center says Chrome is installed.

    But my repository list on the this machine does not include
    the google chrome repository.

    But on my older machine with working Chrome,
    the repository is listed.

    I tried to add the repository manually.
    But it was not allowed.

    Re: Virtual Package [solved]

    Thank you for kind reply.

    You are absolutely correct!!

    The bug was mentioned earlier in this thread,
    but I got so involved with my replies that I failed to checkout
    the bug.

    Chrome is now working after getting rid of the pepperflash.


    I am grateful for the help that you all have provided.
    As always, you have all taught me much.
    And saved me again!

    And I thank you for your time.

    Best regards
