Re: Update Manager Error - Target ... configured multiple times

Actually, most of the warnings, which Update Manager displays to you, are about "target .... configured multiple times ...", in plain English: about duplicate entries.
You can fix this problem, without resetting everything to factory defaults:
Many thanks again karlchen. That did the trick.

When I googled what was the equivalent command to sfc /scannow in Linux it said that

Code: Select all

sudo debsums -s
was the one. Are you saying what I surmised is wrong?

Yep that is where I got it from and when I right clicked on it, the top line said "Open with Oracle VM VirtualBox" and that did the trick. Many thanks for your help. I would have put SOLVED but as I was not the instigator of this thread did not not think that was correct. So have noted it on my thre...

There was no typo in the command I gave.
when I copied and pasted the command

Code: Select all

apt purge --autoremove virtualbox*"
nothing happened so I tried it without the " at the end and it worked. Have I done something wrong?

Hmm, I'd say remove everything vbox you've got installed: apt purge --autoremove virtualbox*" and then reinstall it apt install virtualbox-6.1 Morning GM, I noted that " mark at the end of the first command and left that out as I assumed it a typo. Anyway it worked and then ran the second command a...

Re: VirtualBox 6.1.2 for Linux

Hi GM when I did this I got this info. Then you don't have the repository added (which is bad, because it means you never received security updates and bug fixes for 6.0). See virtualbox.org for details. Hi gm I am back on this again. I uninstalled the old version and would now like to install the ...

Pop!_OS - any opinions?

Been looking a the distro Pop!_OS and wondered what the forum thinks of it. I was considering running it in VM but is it worth my trouble in my quest to find out more about Linux. Look forward to opinions of what I am considering. TIA
