I am a recent switcher from another distro, and thought I'd give the LMDE a try on my Macbook Pro. I got it up and running no problem, but once I did a software update, on reboot it went to a command line. So, I re-installed(seemed quicker at the time than try to log into another computer and search for a fix...).
Anyway, I've been running stable for a couple of days and looking at the Mint Update Manager, it says there are 1208 updates available! Holy crap...
I have to say that I'm a bit hesitant to try to do another update. Any advice on what may have happened the first time around? And is it normal to see such a huge update list?
PS- I don't mind doing updates in the command line, as that is how I did my updates in PinguyOS.
