Ok so there will be some problems if some packages are not available.

You can avoid this with the following methed of installing those pacakges:

Code:
awk '{ printf "$1 install\n" }' < p2install.txt | sudo dpkg --set-selections
sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade

awk '{ printf "$1 install\n" }' < p2install.txt | sudo dpkg --set-selections
The output was :
dpkg: illegal package name at line 1: must start with an alphanumeric

Hmm. Ok, maybe a typo somewhere. Please do:

Code:
awk '{ printf "$1 install\n" }' < p2install.txt > selections.txt
Then post the output of
Code:
head selections.txt

Oops sorry! Stupid mistake by me.

This is what I should have asked in the first place:
Code:
awk '{ printf "%s install\n", $1 }' < p2install.txt | sudo dpkg --set-selections
sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade

The first one produced no ouput. The second one asked me to install some things. I pressed 'y'. Some things were installed, apparently. A lot of lines appeared.
The last ones mention errors.
Erors were encountred while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/sun-java6-bin_6-15-1_i386.deb
/var/cache/apt/archives/sun-java6-jre_6-15-1_all.deb
E:Sub-process usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1).

This is related to the lock file problem earlier. Can you please run
Code:
dpkg --configure --pending
And post the output?

Then please post the last 20 lines or so. Without seeing the error messages I can only make uninformed guesses at how to fix the problem.

So this shows the problem.

I did a quick check at:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?ke...n-java6-plugin

and it seems you need "multiverse" repositories. Does the relevant line exist in your /etc/apt/sources.list file? If not, did you backup your /etc/apt/source.list file from your previous installation? If so please copy that file.

I'm sorry, what relevant line are you talking about ?
No I didn't back up /etc/apt/source.list.

Ok I tried to read it carefully. I didn't understand half of it.
Anyway, back to my problem, what must I do now ?
I still don't know what to do with the /etc/apt/source.list file.
