Re: Linux Mint 17 Rosa update problem

The other problem is my WiFi connection to the PC keeps dropping and I have to reboot. The WiFi shows as connected yet nothing online works. It seems to me some apps are causing this issue though I'm not sure what exactly

Thanks

Try going into Users and Groups and create a new user with administrator privilege.
Log out and log back in as the new user and retry the Update manager from there.
Will that allow updates?

You are using a version 17 and that command should have worked. I think you have a bad install. Was this installed recently? Did you check the sha256sum of the install ISO you downloaded?
