System damaged because of apt-get upgrade & Ubuntu Repos?

Postby trisec on Fri Dec 28, 2012 6:06 pm

Well, I was shaving the yak when I did

Code: Select all
apt-get update

all went well so far, so I did

Code: Select all
apt-get upgrade


Then I realized, after it asked me to compare the file /etc/issue, that I have http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted universe multiverse repository switched on. But, as some changes were already made, I let it run through.

Have I made a mistake? And if so, should & how can I undo this (ctrl + z)? :mrgreen:

I don't know if the repositories were there already, or if I inserted the repositories long time ago for a software far far away.
I have a Linux Mint 13 Maya with Cinnamon 64bit running. And I haven't shut it down, since running the (maybe unfortunate) upgrade.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Please share the output of the command:
Code: Select all
inxi -r

Also, please check your /etc/issue file:
Code: Select all
cat /etc/issue

It should be:
Code: Select all
Linux Mint 13 Maya \n \l

All looks fine :wink: Unless you have any symptoms that would indicate damage to your system, both your inxi -r output and the contents of your /etc/issue file are in line with a clean install of Linux Mint 13 (except of course for the i2p-maintainers PPA you added).
