    Exclamation Partial Updates

    I am having trouble doing updates. It will only do partial updates and also there is something that dpkdg or somthing like that has to be run manually

    Re: Partial Updates

    While your post leads me to guess, I'm guessing from the limited amount of information that you need to run from the CLI
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    to take care of the "something that dpkdg (sic) or something like that has to be run manually". This may clear up the partial update thing, too; or it may not, if there are updates being held back awaiting updated dependencies which are not yet ready, which will result in those being available for download once the dependencies are ready.

    A unresolvable problem occurred while intializing the package infomation.

    Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

    'E: The package virtualbox needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.'




    I dont get this message or what to do.

    Re: Partial Updates

    Best thing to do is run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    in terminal to repair any broken packages. From there either the package will have been removed or fully installed.

    Re: Partial Updates

    I had that once - this should do the trick as the install -f probably won't work.

    Code:
    sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq virtualbox

    Re: Partial Updates

    Run a partial upgrade, to install as many updates as possible

    This can be caused by:
    *A previous upgrade which didnt complete
    *Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
    *Normal changes of a pre-releease version of Ubuntu



    Should I just do the update and the upgrade
