    Re: procps blues

    Ok, fixed it.

    if you run this

    cat /etc/sysctl.d/*.conf /etc/sysctl.conf | sudo sysctl -p -

    you might see a line

    kernel.yama.ptrace_scope = 1

    to see where this line is linked to

    grep kernel.yama.ptrace_scope /etc/sysctl.d/*.conf /etc/sysctl.conf

    and then comment it out in /etc/sysctl.d/10-ptrace.conf

    Now you can update / upgrade again.

    Re: procps blues

    Fixed. I opened /etc/sysctl.d/10-zeropage.conf and changed vm.mmap_min_addr = 65536 to 65535

    that did not work for me
    neither did the
    /etc/sysctl.d/10-ptrace.conf
    procedure

    Re: procps blues

    have you 'see also, for example: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...s/+bug/1241376'.
    check files for procps in directory upstart for error. In my case just needed to add a new line in one of the .conf's
