    Re: Update or update ubuntu 16.04

    Not sure if you missed the point when 16.04.2 became 16.04.3. if that is the case read this. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack

    The following command is a simulation of what will likely be installed and removed, no changes to your system will happen
    Code:
    sudo apt -s install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04
    If you are happy with what is shown run the command again leaving out the '-s' then try
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
    Let us know the result.

    Thanks for your time on this.

    The response is not good:

    With a broken sources.list I cannot update anything on the system.

    Annoyingly I built another system at the same time and it too has exactly the same problem - it cannot be updated.

    Re: Update or update ubuntu 16.04

    Are we trying to fix this issue purely in the terminal or do you have access to a desktop environment (GUI)?

    I prefer sometimes to use point and click apps. This will be difficult for me if you have only terminal access.

    Re: Update or update ubuntu 16.04

    At the moment the only thing I can suggest is looking at this page to see if it gives you any ideas. https://askubuntu.com/questions/9181...ported-release

    Unfortunately my knowledge of the terminal is very nearly exhausted where servers are concerned, I wish you good luck if the page is helpful.

    If it is not helpful it may be quicker to clean install from a newer iso.

    Thumbs down Re: Update or update ubuntu 16.04

    Thanks for your help. I think it's sad that a stock build can get borked like this. I won't be rebuildings this box as a Ubuntu, I think RHEL maybe a better plan. Cheers

    Before you jump Ubuntu ship you could try installing webmin on server to do remote configuration.

    I would love to but with a broken apt capability, I can't install anything (unless I use individual deb files) so flattening it seems the fastest fix.
