Hey everyone! I'm a complete newbie who got fed up with windows and thought I'd give this a shot. After a clean install, I can't get mintUpdate to do any updating. Here is what happened:
I just freshly installed Linux Mint, and after it booted up, I noticed that the icon in the toolbar says that there are 49 updates to install. When I click on it, mintUpdate hangs. Finally, after about 15 minutes, I got to the screen with the heading "Keep your system up-to-date." It showed no updates, so I clicked on refresh, and the window grayed out, and I watched the cursor spin for another 25 minutes, and nothing happens. Does this mean that everything is up to date? I really appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks in advance, and sorry if this is a dumb question.
