Unhappy Unable to lauch the Updates...New Installation of Kubuntu...


I am new at Linux and I have recently installed KUbuntu on two computers and there is a message that says that there are Updates, the first one is Security Updates, then there is a list with all the check boxes checked. When I click on the green check mark to lauch the Updates, the computer freezes up and I do not know what to do but to reboot (cold boot). The same thing happens afterward.

Thank you

Open up a terminal (Konsole) and type there
Code:
sudo apt-get update
hit enter then type your password and hit enter again

let it do its thing but once its done type
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
type your password if prompted
let it do its thing once its done type
Code:
sudo reboot
hope that helps you to fix some bugs or whatever missing drive gets installed.

good luck to you

You might also check the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

On the most recent two installs of Mint I've done (an Ubuntu based distribution) I found the sources.list file just referenced the install media. If that's the case, just grab one off of the Internet and do the above poster's suggestion.
