For some reason, your initramfs is failing to start your RAID array. That could mean it just wasn't configured to, or that it was somehow generated wrong. Since you're able to boot from a recovery disk, you can easily change the setting and regenerate it using the following commands: dpkg-reconfigure mdadm. You should be asked which arrays to start in the ...

The solution is fairly easy, just replace auto to allow-hotplug. So I ended up with this: allow-hotplug lo iface lo inet loopback allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.150.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 allow-hotplug eth1 iface eth1 inet manual up ifconfig $IFACE ...

check new kernel location in /boot/grub/grub.conf file. upgraded kernel params will show upper side of old kernel. Another thing is check default value. It should be 0 for new kernel.

You could try to download the deb package and open it up using the file explorer. Then it is possible it will install. You can download the .deb on the official Debian site at https://www.debian.org/distrib/packages then use dpkg -i package.deb

The more general approach is to compare the two source packages corresponding to the version you're upgrading from and the version you're upgrading to. To find the former you may need to look through the snapshots; the latter should be available from your archive. Then run debdiff on the two .dsc files. Here's an example, comparing stella 4.1.1-1 (the ...

You can download the source code from the Debian repositories using: apt-get source <PACKAGE> It will download 3 files, a .dsc that describes the package, a .orig.tar.gz that contains the source code, and a .diff.gz that contains the changes. This will work if in /etc/apt/sources.list/ you have included deb-src entries, for example: deb ...

Additionally, Sometimes it's not working with the error: Md5 Hash mismath for the file exiting /mnt/dists/kali/Release. You can remove or regenerate it to get everything back on track.(cp -r /mnt/ /var/mnt/ first for read-only reason)

There's a package for that ;-). As well as cron-apt, which can be configured to perform certain upgrades automatically, another useful package is unattended-upgrades which is designed to safely apply security updates automatically. Beyond that, as Erathiel says it's not safe to run dist-upgrade automatically, but it's safe enough to run it manually every ...

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade is very safe to run as it won't do anything to the system, instead stopping to ask for your confirmation ;) You would have to add a -y switch, which is intended for unattended upgrades and makes apt assume that you always answer 'yes' to questions: sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade. The man page states that If an undesirable ...

The problem for me was that the repos use https and that doesn't work. cd /etc/yum.repos.d/ grep -RFi "https" * This shows in what repo files https is used. Open them in an editor and make it http. For me that fixed the problem.

The value for APT::Default-Release can be modified in: /etc/apt/apt.conf/10defaultRelease Since the "stable" version has changed from "wheezy" to "jessie", it is needed to replace "stable" with "oldstable" in that file. If you want to upgrade to jessie (and if you updated your sources.list), you can replace the string with "stable" again. Edit: When ...

For each of the urls mentioned in the error message in the question, do a search for it. Then remove it from the relevant file in /etc/apt/sources.list.. For example cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d grep -R http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty/main/binary-amd64/Packages This will give you a name of a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d. Then go into ...

It appears that my Mint 17.1 is not using /etc/apt/sources.list, but rather /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list Please try the following command: # inxi -r Let me know what you get.

The kernel update tutorial posted on the Linux Mint Community is like a spam/fake. One can remove the version 3.18.2-031802-generic by running: sudo apt-get remove 'linux-headers-3.18.2*' 'linux-image-3.18.2*' In my particular case, everything works well now.
