package managers and update

Postby stevenkra on Wed Oct 17, 2007 1:16 pm

I should have the latest version installed (on hard drive) and after updating last night, not sure the update took, Update manger, package manager and deb installer all start when and installing new program, then disappear without seeming to finish. Tried installing mini install and Frostwire and neither shows up in menus.
I did do a reboot.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Welcome to Mint stevenkra
Let's see if I get it right
You installed and updated, both Update manager and Synaptic just disappears. Did you install a deb package too?
That's much.... Hope you did not do all at the same time (think you'll get an error message, but anyway)
mini install
What's that?
Try this in a terminal and report the result
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

The outcome can tell us what's wrong
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
