Re: /boot partition

If you choose to encrypt the whole disk, then you will need a separate boot partition, which if I am not mistaken, will be created by the installer itself. Otherwise, it will be perfectly fine to have boot directory within root partition, that is: no need for a separate partition.

Re: Update Error - mint-artwork-common

Try the following:
Open Software Sources and restore the official repositories to default. Close and run in a terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
and then

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade dpkg
Now open Update Manager and update your system. I hope that this resolves the issue.
