Fresh install of LMDE 2 64bit fails to update properly
Posted: Wed Feb 03, 2016 5:27 pm
After using LMDE 32 bit (with pae kernel) on all my machines with great success and joy for the last few years, I finally decided to upgrade to 64 bit with a fresh install (British English). Installation went fine (lmde-2 2015 03 Mate), but there were several missing packages when updating from the repositories, and furthermore the Mate desktop failed to work, and the login password field remained blank when typing password. I am now completely stuck.
