After installing some packages, i.e. sudo aptitude install pkg ... , there was a line of message at the end of the output:
Current status: 0 updates [-66].
What does it mean?
Aptitude GUI is a graphical version of Aptitude we talked about in our previous post. As Aptitude has already been removed from official repository of Ubuntu, one cant expect to see this GUI based Aptitude by default in Ubuntu Precise Pangolin.
I have noticed using Aptitude to apply updates, and dpkg -P to purge off old kernel versions, that after purging old kernel versions, Aptitude wants to reinstall the old kernel packages next time I am in there to apply updates.
As is, I must tell Aptitude to forget pending changes / available updates, re-download the list of packages, mark all upgradable, THEN it correctly marks only the upgrad
I was installing and uninstalling some packages on my home 11.10 system, when I suddenly noticed that dpkg and aptitude want to remove almost everything. Synaptic seems fine. At work, where I have an almost identical setup, I am NOT having this problem. From here, I thought it was a multiarch problem, but, again, the same setup at work is fine.
Unfortunately, I need to use IE for some programs, but I am having problems installing it. I am trying to follow this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...ternetExplorer but when I try
sudo aptitude install wine cabextract
sudo: aptitude: command not found
. Do I need to install Aptitude?
I used sudo aptitude update and sudo aptitude upgrade to update the packages, and encountered an error when processing the package man-db (with --configure). A few days later, same error occured with libc6:i386. Since there're many packages depends on these two partially installed ones, more and more errors are generated every day.
