ACPI PCC Probe Failed

Following my trials and tribulations in this thread: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=212570 I replaced my SSD and installed a clean Mint 17.3. However, during boot I'm getting "ACPI PCC Probe Failed". This halts the boot. The only way I've found around it is to enter the Recovery co...

Re: Mint Update update keeps reappearing

Drive's been replaced. I was already running diagnostics from a live usb system and it still wouldn't clear the data.

Re: Mint Update update keeps reappearing

The installation fails when trying to format the partition. I dropped out and ran gparted to do it manually and something interesting happens. I delete sda6 (/ partition), sda5 (swap) and sda3 (the containing extended partition) and leave sda1 (the 100mb system reserved partition) and sda2 (my Windo...

Re: Mint Update update keeps reappearing

Hmm, there was a power failure a few weeks back. I tried the advice in the article you linked but whenever I try to restore the superblock backup I get: $ sudo e2fsck -b 163840 /dev/sda6 e2fsck 1.42.9 (4-Feb-2014) Superblock needs_recovery flag is clear, but journal has data. Recovery flag not set i...

Re: Mint Update update keeps reappearing

ok, I've booted into a live system. While here, I tried to run a filesystem check from gparted but got errors about setting superblock flags. Log is below because this forum has ridiculously paranoid attachment rules: $ sudo fsck /dev/sda6 fsck from util-linux 2.20.1 e2fsck 1.42.9 (4-Feb-2014) /dev/...

Re: Mint Update update keeps reappearing

After a reboot, mintupdate has reverted to 4.9.3.2, the 4.9.3.3 deb is gone from the apt archives and the history has reverted to its previous state.

Re: Mint Update update keeps reappearing

Next do the updates for those 2 packages again. This time do not apply the other updates, if the update manager reappears, but open the menu help -> about and report, which version it shows after the update. I guess, that it will still show 4.9.3.2. If this is the case click the refresh button in t...

Re: fsck on reboot

One more thing to try. Have a look at /etc/fstab. Find the entry for your boot partition. The very last number on the right needs to be a "1". If it is "0" fsck will skip checking it. If you have any other partitions you want to check, excluding "Swap", then their values should be set to "2 The roo...

It would also be interesting to see how Synaptic history is reporting/logging updates.
In the Syanaptics toolbar: File/History

Re: Mint Update update keeps reappearing

Go in your file manager to /var/cache/apt/archives and search for the packages mintupdate*.deb and mint-upgrade-info*.deb. Do you see there the new versions (4.9.3.3 respectively 1.0.4) or only the older ones? After you opened the file manager go at first to file system at the left side, than you c...

Re: Mint Update update keeps reappearing

Note, that this problem is critical, as you don't get any other updates via the update manager, as long as those packages are not up-to-date (and Mint is convinced, that you have those 2 updated packages). The odd thing is that they install successfully and the update program allows me to install a...
