Update problem
« on: October 20, 2019, 09:58:09 pm »
Hello Folks,

I'm having a problem with system updates. I keep being told not all updates can be installed, and to run a partial upgrade.

Problem is, when I try that, the upgrade threatens to uninstall Virtualbox 6, which I rely on. Therefore I keep cancelling the upgrade.

Any help much appreciated.

Mike

Xubuntu 18.04
Virtualbox 6.0

Can you run:
Code: [Select]
mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list
and post the contents of the file that opens back here.
(I'm pretty sure the contents are listed above, but just wanna make 100% sure of the formatting)

Okay, first let's backup that file before editing it .. run:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup
now open the file for editing
Code: [Select]
sudo mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list
and make it read
Code: [Select]

(MAKE SURE YOU GET ALL OF THAT, IT SCROLLS)

SAVE the file and exit mousepad.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
if you get NO errors, try running
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
and (before accepting any changes) see if it still says it wants to uninstall virtualbox ?

I did get errors Mark - see below.

To add to the fun, my internet connection keeps dropping out then coming back. I assume either BT or my ISP is working on it as I type, since the router seems to be quite happy and claims to be connected. I re-booted it to be on the safe side. Maybe the drop-outs explain some of the problems below (I'm thinking of the last five lines in particular)?

Thanks for your help, as always. Forgive me if I don't respond tonight. I may not be able to..

Can you try
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
again and see if you still get errors ? .. because I think those errors may have been due to an internet dropout

Thanks Mark,

My connection seems fine tonight, and the software updater has popped up saying that updated software is available. No mention of partial upgrades.

Virtualbox is listed under "install or remove" and the technical description says
Installed version: 6.0.8-130520~Ubuntu~xenial
Available version: 6.0.14-133895~Ubuntu~bionic.

Which course of action would you think is safer? Running the software updater, or not?

Let it upgrade Virtualbox:-

a) it's a newer version (6.0.14)
and
b) it's the right version for your updated system (ie. bionic rather than xenial)

Will do Mark,

Sorry for the lack of response. Bit busy this end.

I'll report back once I've done it.
