Can't open administrative tools (mintupdate, etc.)

Postby stephonos11 » Sun Feb 10, 2013 6:07 pm

I'm using Linux Mint 13 MATE.

If I run "sudo mintupdate" from the terminal it works fine, but if I run "mintupdate" I get an I/O error. This is also preventing me from installing .deb applications through Gdebi.

Try:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install mintupdate

It says I already have the newest version. I think there might be something wrong with my host file or permissions because mintupdate works fine when I use sudo.

Did you check md5sum of downloaded iso image, before burn it?

No error there. The program mintupdate needs root privileges.

Best regards,

No, I'm not sure what that is.
