apt-get upgrade problems


Seems I've made a mistake. I had a friend update me to
Ubuntu 8.10.
Not only is it painfully slow but I have some difficult problems.
Such as sudo apt-get update-

I suggest firstly that you find another repository for pidgin-libnotify. This:

I did a websearch, and found this site for information on getting the public key for ppa.launchpad.net.

That site basically said run the following two commands:
Code:
wget http://apt.pearsoncomputing.net/public.gpg

sudo apt-key add public.gpg
I'm not sure this will actually suffice, though, given another site that I found (which seems to contradict the first site's instructions). There are film links explicitly describing what to do here. I would try the above first, though.

For the other repositories you needed keys for (packages.medibuntu.org, and wine.budgetdedicated.com), I found some information that may be helpful.

For wine, it says to run the following:
Code:
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
For medibuntu, it says to run the following:
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update
You may be asked to accept this package even though it cannot be authenticated. This is normal; typing "Yes" means you trust Medibuntu. The package with the keyring will then be installed, and this won't be a worry anymore. Hopefully after this, you'll be able to more thoroughly upgrade your system.

So, after running all the code above (in the order given), try the following:
  1. Code:
    sudo apt-get install apt
  2. Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
  3. Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Note, if "dist-upgrade" does not work, then perhaps "sudo apt-get full-upgrade" (I believe at some point the name was changed.)

Also, I noticed this from your first post:

So I take the advice...

Code:
adrian@infowar-machine:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
In fact, the advice stated running apt-get update, not apt-get upgrade. Both commands are needed for a proper upgrade, but it's also important not to confuse the two. Updating precedes upgrading, normally.

If you can post the file /etc/apt/sources.list we can start there, and help you out. The problems you are hitting are partly to do with your repositories being out of date.

Sometimes the easiest thing to do is make a list of the software you use / have installed, back up your files to a network drive or usb drive, and reinstall from scratch. Many people have tried the route you have with mixed results.

I posted my sources.list already.
Believe me, I am considering scrapping and going back to 8.4.

I half agree. You posted the feedback to your last attempt at an upgrade, which, frankly, gave all the necessary information, I feel (mind you, posting that feedback is not the same as posting your sources.list file). Perhaps try opening a terminal, and enter the command "gedit /etc/apt/sources.list" (without quotes), and then if anything appears in gedit, feel free to copy that to a response here.

Also, feel free to either go back to 8.4, or to try the suggestions I gave in my preceding comment.

Good luck!

Yes you need to review your sources list.. you should NOT see both intrepid and jaunty here...

I beg to differ. In fact, I don't think the upgrade is an issue at all. The main issue seems to be the viewing of video in firefox ("This problem [sic] is making it impossible to view any kind of video in my firefox.") So, may I suggest the following:

Code:
sudo apt-get install mozilla-mplayer
This will allow you to watch videos in firefox, which, from your opening post, is your main issue. It appears that you've already successfully upgraded main, restricted, universe, and multiverse, which, really, is all that you need. The package "mozilla-mplayer" is in multiverse. So, this should install, and you will be able to watch videos.

I don't see your sources list posted either..

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
Or "nano /etc/apt/source.list". So many choices. From what I gather of the ppa.launchpad.net repositories, is that they are package specific (somewhat like Debian backports), and don't work unless there is a key for them. So, while I noticed the jaunty repository, I didn't think it would make much of a difference (especially given that there's currently no key).

It appears the upgrade was already successful, except for a few odds and ends (note, from the OP, it stated, "Need to get 17.9kB/380kB of archives" -- that's pretty small given that there were no problems with the main repositories). Either that or it was a new install of 8.10 which is being referred to as an upgrade.

As I stated previously, I've come to the conclusion that the "upgrade issue" is just a distraction from the real issue, which, of course, is watching videos. Heck, who can live without videos in firefox?

mixed repositories can break Debian based systems, which can cause performance issues and things that just plain don't work because your dependencies end up screwed with incompatible versions..

I would not ignore different versions of a distro listed in a sources.list, lack of a repository key doesn't mean packages won't install it just means it will throw warning about them.

It did state, "The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used". Anyway, I'm guessing it's just one program, so, regardless, likely not a huge worry. That said, I do agree that, unless one has set up a carefully constructed preferences file, that mixing repositories isn't a good idea. I just don't think in this case it's a huge worry. I would, in fact, even recommend that the user change everything to jaunty, and upgrade once again (except I'm not sure there's the required patience for such an action). I'd also suggest getting rid of all the ppa stuff, and just stick with main, universe, restricted, and multiverse. But, to each their own.

I still stand by my statement that his/her firefox video concern could be solved by simply installing mozilla-mplayer, and, otherwise, she/he has nothing more to really be concerned about. Install that one thing, and everything else will just be fine, I feel.

Ouch, I can only use firefox in my VBox Windows XP now. All my ubuntu firefox does now is crash upon startup.
@Mark
I took your advice and the commands created .gpg files in my home folder. I opened them with Import Key.

Ugh. Ok I can't even paste from my terminal into this window. This whole situation is sorry.
I'm just scrapping everything, after I go to my buddies house and punch him in the ear for this shoddy job he called an install. I'm going back to 8.4.

Mark and farslayer, thank you both. I will hold karma responsible for your reparations.

Yeah! Give him a good shot for me too!!

I think you should use Windows. It would be far less frustrating for you, I suspect. Good luck!
