Debian Update => /bin/bash: Permission denied


Hey,


I updated my shared debian box on gandi today and after I applied the updates (apt-get update & apt-get dist-upgrade) I got

Code:
/bin/bash: Permission denied
Its a shared box so I cant access root directly which means I would have to log to another user and then to root, but its impossible since I get the permission denied error and my session ends.

Anybody got any ideas how to solve this problem?

Sincerely,

Salim

I believe you must have root privileges to run dist-upgrade. You'll need to be added to the 'sudo' users then run `sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade`
