    Re: Reinstalling linux-image-3.8.0-15-generic

    I have the 3.8.0-16-generic kernel installed which is the latest.

    Maybe try this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.8.0-16 linux-headers-3.8.0-16-generic linux-image-3.8.0-16-generic linux-image-extra-3.8.0-16-generic

    Re: Reinstalling linux-image-3.8.0-15-generic

    Only time I have ever been able to get past a " needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it." error I've had to use reinstreq
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --remove  --force-remove-reinstreq package name
    but I only use it if I really have to.

    man dpkg -
    remove-reinstreq: Remove a package, even if it's broken and
    marked to require reinstallation. This may, for example, cause
    parts of the package to remain on the system, which will then be
    forgotten by dpkg.

    Do You have any other kernel installed?
    If You do, boot with it then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.8.0-15-generic
    and You should be OK...
    If You do not have any other kernel installed install one from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ (picking 4 .deb's) and You could either reboot in new kernel and purge offending one or purge offending one and boot into new kernel or do update/upgrade and You should get -16 and then...
    Just keep one kernel beside that one and You should be OK...
    Carefully...

    What is the output of cat /etc/fstab? Highlight the output and click the # button above to put CODE around it so it is legible.

    Sounds like a fresh install may be necessary.

    Oh and the output of sudo blkid also wrapped in CODE.

    The output is
    Code:
    goubuntu@MonsterDesktopU:~$ cat /etc/fstab
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    # / was on /dev/sda6 during installation
    UUID=ae9d1883-d5e2-44a8-bda6-ccf5bdb28d64 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
    # /home was on /dev/sda7 during installation
    UUID=2a6b3372-c91f-4763-8ef5-65dad5702db1 /home           ext4    defaults        0       2
    # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
    UUID=8ac0a990-1e3f-417a-9ff2-449ce36548a2 none            swap    sw              0       0
    /dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       0
    I would hate doing a fresh install, is there an easy way to backup applications?

    Surely you do not have all of your important stuff on a development OS?

    I have a 1TB USB drive I copy all of my stuff to before a clean install.

    Make sure you back up your /home/cavsfan/.mozilla folder. Saves bookmarks, settings and a bunch more.

    Everything looks good with your fstab matching your partitions.
