    donaldt;
    Still hang'n in there with you and the others helping you. Your attention is invited to arpanaut;s response.
    Mine is the same, I have never seen such an error and had no idea as to how to proceed. arpanaut's approach is reasonable. See if the advise clears up that issue.

    try'n to help

    I have never knowingly used chmod or chown on my home files.

    Thanks!

    Re: Update manager issues

    Well, the right command here would be not ls -l, but ls -ld or ls -l /home. Anyway, try
    Code:
    sudo chown donald: .
    There are also some files owned by root in your home directory. To change ownership of them, try
    Code:
    sudo chown donald: *
    Some of those files were clearly created by mistake, after changing their ownership, you may as well remove them:
    Code:
    rm cat gedit gksudo

    Re: Update manager issues

    I will try that and wait for more updates to see if anything changes.

    Thanks for the help!

    Re: Update manager issues

    I just had 3 updates show up in update manager, so I tried it again. There is no change. When I click update it locks up update manager about 50% toward completion.


    Basically, nothing has changed with update manager for all the file examining and checking of files we have done so far.

    What is next??

    thanks,

    donaldt

    Re: Update manager issues

    I noticed there's tmp.txt in your home folder. I guess it's the output of strace. Could you please proceed with the file like matt_symes suggested in that post, and make its contents available to us?

    Re: Update manager issues

    Per your request, here is the output requested in that post:

    donald@donald-Aspire-3810T:~$ sudo sed -i -e '/google/s/^deb/# deb/' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list
    [sudo] password for donald:
    donald@donald-Aspire-3810T:~$ sudo apt-get clean
    donald@donald-Aspire-3810T:~$ sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
    donald@donald-Aspire-3810T:~$
    donald@donald-Aspire-3810T:~$ gksudo update-manager

    Update manager opened, but there were no updates available, so it just said the software on this computer is up to date

    Re: Update manager issues

    Sorry, I meant the last part of Matt's post, i.e.
    Code:
    tail -n500 ~/tmp.txt > tmp2.txt
    Code:
    zip update-mgr tmp2.txt
    and posting update-mgr.zip here as an attachment.

    Re: Update manager issues

    OK, I found that file in the home directory. I zipped it. Here is the link.


    file:///home/donald/Desktop/update-mgr.zip

    Re: Update manager issues

    donaldt; As I continue to monitor this thread;
    The file "file:///home/donald/Desktop/update-mgr.zip "
    needs to be posted to this thread as an "attachment" so that the file is downladed to the thread,
    my small effort to help
