Opening the URL directly in a web browser gives this more informative error message The requested URL /ubuntu/dists/saucy-security/universe/binary-i386/Packages was not found on this server. From this it's a short step to checking whether Saucy still exists. Looking at http://releases.ubuntu.com/ it's possible to see that it's not mainline, but that ...

I used to have a "no internet" update process on my machine. This is how I did it: First I used apt-get --print-uris update > meta.list to create a list of all files needed for updating the system. Using wget, I could run wget -x -i meta.list on any other machine to download the meta data on a USB stick. Back to my machine, I generated the list of files ...

This sounds like it may work, but personally, I'd just use apt-offline. From the manpage: apt-offline brings offline package management functionality to Debian based system. It can be used to download packages and its dependencies to be installed later on (or required to update) a disconnected machine. Packages can be ...

To install the libSBML package in Ubuntu 14.04, first install the Python development packages and the Pip install system: sudo apt-get install python-dev python-pip Then install the libSBML dependencies and development libraries: sudo apt-get install libxml2 libxml2-dev sudo apt-get install zlib1g zlib1g-dev sudo apt-get install bzip2 libbz2-dev ...

The following command will list all packages which have ever been removed (or purged), as far back as apt's history allows: zgrep -E '^(Remove:|Purge)' /var/log/apt/history.log* This does not distinguish automatic removals from explicit removals, but with a little work you should be able to reconstruct that information. If you always use the command ...

There should be logs located at /var/log/apt/history.log that contain your past actions with apt.

I don't know a way to do this using apt, but you may try searching your bash history: grep 'apt-get .*remove' ~/.bash_history This should output all lines with remove or autoremove.

You can do a sudo apt-get autoremove to uninstall everything that was automatically installed and is no longer needed. I guess tor-geoipdb gets removed because it depends in tor so it can't be installed without tor being installed. Now torsocks can be installed on it's own but is no longer required to being installed. So it can be automatically removed. ...

To uninstall a package with all its dependencies you can use --auto-remove sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove tor

That's because the package is most likely not called "opencv". Try first "apt-cache search opencv". It gives a list of possible packages.

Please take a look at the packages website. https://packages.debian.org/source/wheezy/opencv It is a source package, not a binary. And from these source packages are a lot of binary packages built, which are listed on the website. But none of them is named "opencv". If you want to install opencv, you really want to install some or all of these binary ...

On reboot, it gets it's Mint back. "IIRC mintsystem & ubuntu-system-adjustments will take care of these files on the next boot anyway, filling them with the correct Mint info." Ref: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=175398

You need to rebuild the packages for the new ocaml version by yourself or wait until Debian does it officially. For rebuilding, e.g. follow this general tutorial: https://wiki.debian.org/BuildingTutorial There is already a transition in Debian ongoing where all OCaml packages are rebuild automatically for the new OCaml version. You can find details for ...

dpkg --search /usr/bin/mysqldump dpkg -S /usr/bin/mysqldump The argument of dpkg --search is a shell wildcard pattern, so you can do things like dpkg -S bin/*dump. Alternatively, you can search the database manually — it's just text files. grep mysqldump /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list On a system with a lot of packages installed, dpkg -S can be slow because ...

By default, the packages which you install using apt-get are the latest stable versions which are selected by the distribution developer team. It's simple: The package file with specified version is placed on the selected repository. If you want to install the latest version, If other repository provided you can add it to your repo list.. As you also ...

You could use apt-cache depends package (for dependencies) or apt-cache rdepends package (for reverse dependencies).

Another solution would be to run apt-cache rdepends libplrpc-perl.

Just found the answer. For these packages you have to first do: add-apt-repository ppa:avsm/ppa Hope it helps people with the same problem.

You want dpkg. Specifically the -S option will find which package owns a file. An example: $ dpkg -S /usr/bin/whereis util-linux: /usr/bin/whereis The example shows that util-linux is the package which contains /usr/bin/whereis.

Just remove the install-info package. After two days of "computer hell", I finally got the answer. It wasn't easy! Uninstall it from synaptic package manager, or from terminal. sudo apt-get remove install-info I recently upgraded from Xubuntu 14.04 to 14.10, then immediately to 15.04. BOTH TIMES I got the "unmet dependencies" and "held broken packages" ...

It seems that the local repository was out of date, solved after typing : sudo apt-get clean

The only solution I can see is to install a Wheezy system in a VM (you could use VirtualBox), trying to get the same package list as your VPS (use dpkg --get-selections to generate it) Then you should copy every package in */var/cache/apt/deb from your VM to your VPS and, finally, use dpkg -i *deb to install them. I cannot guarantee it will work but I ...

So you have an old custom package which triggers an error when systemd is upgraded due to a bad configuration file. Given the order in which maintainer scripts are executed, the earliest time at which the new version of your package can intervene is the preinst upgrade step, which happens before the new package is unpacked, well before the postinst ...

without installing it manually ourselves before starting the full upgrade That's difficult, because apt doesn't have such facilities. Normally, when you do an upgrade, dpkg is called to install all the downloaded packages and it separates them in groups that makes sense, unpacking them all to then configuring them all (this is very simplified, it ...

You've got a newer libc6 than is available in the Maverick repositories. To revert to the appropriate version for Maverick, you can run sudo apt-get install libc6=2.12.1-0ubuntu10.4 libc-bin=2.12.1-0ubuntu10.4 libc6-dev=2.12.1-0ubuntu10.4 libc-dev-bin=2.12.1-0ubuntu10.4 If the newer libc6 was installed to support some other package, then you'll need to ...

Removing a program just because you don't use it shows a misguided sense of priorities. Disk space is cheap. Gedit takes less than 2MB of disk space. Even at SSD RAID-1 prices, that costs less than ½¢. At the minimum wage in my country, it takes less than 2s to earn that much. It'll take you far more than 2 seconds to do this. The gains from removing the ...

you should install mongodb-org sudo apt-get install mongodb-org this is the package recommended on mongoDB's site and it's actually the meta-package which means it could contain some of the dependencies that you are missing. Hope this helps :D

Find which line in /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and comment it. Then run apt-get update and try install php5-fpm again.

You can't, the maintainer has to do it. Debian sid is currently undergoing the disruptive gcc5 transition, which is causing many uninstallability issues like this one (libreoffice isn't the only thing in the same boat; most of KDE has the same problem). You can try installing libreoffice from stretch (testing), which should still work for the moment. ...

Generally, the solution is "don't try to install from source into directories managed by your packaging system". You can install your custom-compiled code into /usr/local, for example, and having anything that depends on it look to /usr/local for libraries and include files using appropriate invocations of your build system (e.g., setting ...
