    Update system causing problems with Penguin

    During an update process a problem occurred. Update didn't complete and now I have a problem.

    The system works, but I'm concerned the enduser will come up with something when she comes back from vaca so I'd prefer to fix it now if possible.

    the errors are as follows after typing sudo apt-get -f install

    Re: Update system causing problems with Penguin

    Do you really mean Penguin or Precise Pangolin? You should have Synaptic Package Manager installed. Open it and search for kernel. Look through the list for anything related to Linux 3.2.0.36.43 or 3.2.0.40.48 you may find that some are marked with a grey icon indicating that they are due to be upgraded. A right click will let you mark them for upgrade.

    What is strange is that you are trying to install an older kernel. Linux 3.2.0.36.43 is older than Linux 3.2.0.40.48. That is what is causing the problem. You are missing some of the bits and pieces for Linux 3.2.0.36.43

    Can you access the Grub menu? At the menu select the normal line that boots Ubuntu and press E. That will put Grub into Edit mode and you can examine the boot parameters to see what kernel is being booted. Press Esc to back out of Edit mode or F10 to boot.

    If you run this
    Code:
    apt-get autoremove


    then all those non-required packages will be removed.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Yes, Precise Penguin, ubuntu 12.04. Have already tried sudo apt-get autoremove.

    This problem arose through an incomplete update.

    I will try the steps you suggest in synaptic. Will report when I have. Thanks.

    Re: Update system causing problems with Penguin

    Finally got to the machine and try your fix. Unfortunately it did not help. And, I'm getting a MaxReport reached message so an error report isn't being generated.

    Can you suggest something more?

    Tbanks,

    Re: Update system causing problems with Penguin

    Oh, I should say I did an apt-get -f autoremove first, then an apt-get -f install, which got the message I described re MaxReport, then I went to synaptic tried to do the updates. It said it had some broken packages, which I tried to apply the fix, and it wouldn't . I also did a sudo dpkg --configure -a and this also returned an error.
