error in updates

Postby norm37 on Wed Oct 05, 2011 8:26 am

Re Linux Mint 11; the last time I downloaded updates / patches, the network suddenly closed. I spent hours looking for answer and found several files missing, yet the headers remained in Synaptic Package Manager. The files that disappeared are; libavahi-common3, -gobject0, -common-data, -glib1, -client3, -core7, and -ui0. I have never seen anything like this before and tried to download individual files with another computer but was unable to find source for them. I had to re-install Mint and was not happy about that. To make matters worse, I had used the highly recommended DejaDup :twisted: to presumably save everything before new installation, but I found the Home Directory saved with DejaDup :twisted: could not be restored to new Home Directory. This was due to the highly recommended back up and restore program not having any help file. In future, I will be very cautious in using any application without documentation. (I stopped using KDE applications because they are / were so buggy even though they had good documentation.) I hope nobody else has these problems.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Is there presumably a question in the posting somewhere... :? ?
