Re: Update Manager and the Red ""X"

OK guys, I booted up my desktop, cause y'all made me keep thinking about it. Went to that, "Software Sources," unchecked and removed it. I hope that solves it for good. If it doesn't will let y'all know, but shut that machine down again till Monday. Also looked in the menu under ALL APPLIC...

Re: Update Manager and the Red ""X"

Software Sources is found under Edit of the menu bar of Update Manager. The potential errors people mentioned earlier include the "Failed to fetch" message for Chrome that showed up in your Update Manager. It isn't surprising that a 2006 desktop with 2GB of RAM is slow by today's standard...

Re: Update Manager and the Red ""X"

Go to software sources and un-check Google-chrome in the Additional repository list. that's if you had installed chrome before. editing the /etc/apt/source.d.list will not be saved, whenever chrome is run it will revert to the old entry. Disadvantage to un-checking chrome entry in software reposito...

If you want to get helped, you need to provide information.

Re: Update Manager and the Red ""X"

As expected, the answer was given by Lolo Uila in the post above yours. Yes, thanks for pointing that post out, but is a moot point for my issue, since I did install and began using CHROMIUM which is supported, and I UNINSTALLED Chrome. Now why am I not getting emails notifying me about replies to ...

You probably did this already, but just in case, did you open Terminal and do an upgrade, and update? sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get update The problem seems to have been addressed for most of us. I know it's hard, but try to remember that this is a completely free OS, and the guys th...
