_cache->open() failed

Postby mandoman on Thu Mar 13, 2014 8:57 am

After last update, while running on Mint Mate 16 64bit, an error warning appeared
Code: Select all
_cache->open() failed
, after which it said "please report". I confess my ignorance as to what this error portents, but am just trying to follow the instruction to report the error. I searched the forum for this particular error, and found nothing, so if this is the wrong place to report, my apologies.

Reason: Moved from LMDE to Main edition, because Mint 16 is definitely not LMDE
What was that code again?

As your apt-get update output has no error message, that means you shouldn't get that error now. So, do you still see that error?

No. In fact, I just got an update dealing with "sudo". I don't know if they are connected, but as long as it's not a problem, then I'm happy. Thanks for the help.
