    partial upgrade

    i didn't log on the internet for about a week then when i got connected to the internet i tried to update the system _i'm running ubuntu 13.10_ it said it needs partial upgrade .when i click partial upgrade ,it says that the system is up to date and cancels .
    when i click "continue" , it says "software index is broken .it is impossibe to install or remove any software .please use the package manager synaptic or run sudo apt-get install -f in terminal to fix the issue at first .
    i did that .that's the outcome in terminal..
    "The following packages will be REMOVED:
    linux-image-3.11.0-12-generic linux-image-extra-3.11.0-12-generic
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    17 not fully installed or removed.
    After this operation, 136 MB disk space will be freed.
    Do you want to continue [Y/n]? "
    i click y but it doesn't work .that's the outcome ...

    Re: partial upgrade

    Never do a 'Partial Upgrade' in future.

    In Terminal run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    ... and post the output here.

    Please use code tag '#' to paste your output. ['Go Advanced' at bottom to get a full editor, select your output and use # to wrap the text as code], just like I've done to wrap the above commands in code.

    Re: partial upgrade

    The first 12 lines of /etc/default/grub should look like:
    Code:
    # If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
    # /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
    # For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
    #   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'
    
    GRUB_DEFAULT=0
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=3
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
    Is that what yours looks like?
    I suspect you might be missing a quotation mark (") on line 11.

    Those are definitely not quotation marks. See the line below it for comparison?

    At some point, you seem to have edited this line in one of GRUBs config files. I'm not a GRUB expert, so let's hope you remember what changes you made. But you used a word processor or other non-text-editor or non-UTF-8 encoding system. They looked like quotes to you - but they weren't.

    Edit the file in vi or nano or gedit or some other text editor, and replace '€' with plain old '"'. That will get your package manager working again...but until you fix the actual GRUB config file you changed, the problem will certainly recur.

    The problem will recur (and break your package manager again) every time grub updates it's config list. That happens every time a kernel gets added or removed - a few days or weeks. Each update will re-introduce the non-quotes from the config file you originally changed...probably one of the files in /etc/grub.d/
