Unable to update the cinnamon package

Post by PRSoftware » Tue Aug 30, 2016 8:40 am

Hello,

After a fresh installation of Linux Mint 18 in a virtual machine, the first update returns an error for the cinnamon package (sorry, the message is in French)
W: Échec de la récupération de http://mirrors.ircam.fr/pub/linuxmint/p ... ah_all.deb
Somme de contrôle de hachage incohérente
The checksum is not correct.

Could you help me ?

Patrick

Do a refresh with the update manager. The first update you should get is an update for the update manager. Apply this.

It seems that cinnamon is broken :(

My user account is configured to auto login at startup but it shows the login page, asks to select a user. I enter the password and then it shows the console login prompt and returns on the login page to select a user, and so on indefinitely.

Is it a way to repair cinnamon without a new complete install ?

Auto-login in LM 18 is known to be notorious unreliable.

No, at this time it behaves like a Christmas surprise: You never know beforehand, what you get (if it works).

At now there is only the workaround to activate the timed auto-login; this costs at every boot 10 seconds, but it works.

Try downgrading / removing then install a different version.
