apt error message
I installed ubuntu yesterday, it went pretty well, today i'm trying to fiddle with apt i'm getting this message, i'm new to linux and have difficulty interperting this error message
asu: Authentication failure
neshan@Neshan:~$ apt-get update
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13 Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the list directory
Is it because i'm not loged as root, how do i log as root?
what am i doing wrong, your expert advice is appreciated.
use sudo insted of su
ubuntu disables root by default (as a security feature)
if you want to enable it just type
Thank you, it worked, didn't know about sudo, i should collect more info about Ubuntu...
