    Question Long booting time

    Hello,
    the booting time of my Ubuntu 16.04 has become incredibly long. I'm running it on an SSD drive in dual boot with Windows 10. My current fstab file looks like this:
    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    # / was on /dev/sda5 during installation
    UUID=c6278bc5-5494-40d8-8ee0-54a6801842d8 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
    # swap was on /dev/sdd2 during installation
    UUID=f5b4f0c6-cdfd-4376-adb6-685b549cac01 none            swap    sw              0       0
    Could anyone please help me fix this? Here is some hardware info about of my system: AMD Ryzen 1500X, 8GB RAM, 240GB SSD system drive, other 2 SATA drives for storage.
    Thank you in advance to all those that will help me!

    Re: Long booting time

    Run
    Code:
    systemd-analyze blame
    to show event times for bootup.

    It will show you how much time each event is taking.

    Re: Long booting time

    What exactly do you call a long boot up? How long? Keep in mind that Windows doesn't really boot up any more: it just "suspends" when you turn it off.

    Your list seems pretty normal to me.

    You could also "suspend" the Ubuntu session instead of closing it.

    Re: Long booting time

    Windows 10 boots in about 5-7 seconds. Ubuntu was the same immediately after a fresh install, but I had to reinstall it and I also put a lot of software on it, resulting in a 1-2 minutes boot. I thought maybe my Ubuntu installation is compromised because I noticed some suspicious messages at the end of sudo apt-get update:

    Re: Long booting time

    I forgot how I did it, but I was able to eliminate apt-daily.service for a time savings.

    I may have found a way to delay it's starting until after bootup.

    I think this is what I used.

    https://askubuntu.com/questions/8004...-daily-service

    But make sure you make backups of any files you change in case it does not work !

    Question Re: Long booting time

    Thank you, but when I run sudo systemctl edit apt-daily.timer I get the image in the screenshot and I don't exactly know what to do.

    I was also not able to locate the file I would be editing. Sorry for my lack of knowledge, maybe you could help me with some more hints?

    Re: Long booting time

    What you need to copy-and-paste is in https://askubuntu.com/questions/8004...-daily-service

    It doesn't disable apt-daily.service. It works around a bug. The bug is that apt-daily.service is part of boot at all - it shouldn't be.

    You should fix your apt sources. All those (W)arnings about duplicate source entries - clean those up. They are simply duplicates - delete one.

    Someday, when the time comes to release-upgrade to your next release of Ubuntu, remember that you must disable all those PPAs and non-Ubuntu sources, and uninstall all the packages they provided. Return your Ubuntu system to as close to stock as possible...else you may break your system quite badly. Backup your data before starting.

    Thank you for the advice, I'll try to do that!

    Look at the highlighted line on the bottom. It's prompting you for a filename to save as. If you are happy with the current name, hit <Enter>.

    You will use the 'nano' editor many times as an Ubuntu user, so you may as well learn to use it. It's very easy.
    There are many nano tutorials, just a search engine away. Here's one.
