    Having trouble installing/updating programs with Terminal

    Recently, I've been trying to download programs from Google Chrome browser with Terminal.
    For example when I try to download Spotify with these's instructions: https://www.spotify.com/us/download/linux/ ,
    I received an error on step 3 as followed:
    Code:
    ** (appstreamcli:5060): CRITICAL **: Error while moving old database out of the way.AppStream cache update failed.
    Reading package lists... Done
    W: The repository 'cdrom://Ubuntu 16.04 LTS _Xenial Xerus_ - Release amd64 (20160420.1) xenial Release' does not have a Release file.
    N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
    W: http://liveusb.info/multisystem/depot/dists/all/Release.gpg: Signature by key 32027DE3D67157C45E69C0AE4E940D7FDD7FB8CC uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)
    E: Failed to fetch cdrom://Ubuntu 16.04 LTS _Xenial Xerus_ - Release amd64 (20160420.1)/dists/xenial/main/binary-amd64/Packages  Please use apt-cdrom to make this CD-ROM recognized by APT. apt-get update cannot be used to add new CD-ROMs
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    In addition, when I try to install programs, it gives me different errors.
    I believe that this post is similar to my issue but I need additional help because I'm new to Ubuntu.
    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Re: Having trouble installing/updating programs with Terminal

    Is this a live install with persistence on a USB stick ?

    The output of

    Code:
    egrep -v '^#|^ *$' /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
    might be useful.

    Re: Having trouble installing/updating programs with Terminal

    Do you still have the installer CD-ROM selected as a choice for repositories?
    Post this in code tags as a bit longer:

    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    Re: Having trouble installing/updating programs with Terminal

    As I mentioned above, I'm not too good with the knowledge of how Terminal works so I might not understand some of the questions that you guys ask me.
    The output of egrep... :

    Open up the Software & Updates application and from the "Other Software" tab deselect the CDROM options.

    Then try...

    Code:
    sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
    Any errors ?

    OK, try the first tab.. Ubuntu Software, is the CDROM option there ?

    If not we can do this via the terminal easily enough.

    Re: Having trouble installing/updating programs with Terminal

    I actually did find the option on the first tab right after I replied to you and then I input the code you told me to and this is the most common error I've been getting as well:
    $ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

    Re: Having trouble installing/updating programs with Terminal

    I do not think the 4.8 kernel is even released yet. And rc1 is older.
    So one of the many ppa's you have added must include newer kernels, but has not been updated?

    Why so many ppas? Newer users should stay with standard repositories until they fully understand the advantages & disadvantages a ppa may give. I use very few ppa and other than Boot-Repair more in a test install, not my main working install.

    I would turn off all ppa and get system to do normal updates. Then add one ppa at a time until you find the one causing the problems. That is if you really need/want all those ppas.
