I'm a Linux newbie trying to figure out the best method to keep the system as clean as possible, without any orphaned files scattered all over the filesystem. I don't want any configuration files from deleted applications laying around in /home or in any other directory.
I currently have Quantal Quetzal (12.10) and I'd like to upgrade to Saucy Salamander (13.10) via the command line. I know I can do this via the Software Center, but I'm interested in learning how to do this through the Command Line. After doing a little research, it looks like these are the commands that I need to enter. Is this correct?
Stuck within upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04..
It is now running a partial upgrade and just hangs...
USB access and internet access (via USB wireless) appears to have dropped out,
though I managed to download a sizable amount of update before this - half or more of the upgrades were installed.
Ok, so below you can find the output of sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, sudo apt-get update, and sudo apt-get -f update.
Hope you can help. I also have the stop sign on the upper notification area. It says that an error occurred. Actually system froze during an update a week ago or so. Current error says: 'Error: Opening the cache.
