debsums installed and you changed mirrors (I hope) so try sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-dri again.

I changed the mirrors and tried different ones (the fastest ones and the ones from my country), but neither worked... All mirrors that I tried gave me this:

Code: Select all

daniel-GA-MA78GM-US2H daniel # sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-dri
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Reinstallation of libgl1-mesa-dri is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 13 not to upgrade.
Should I send you a screenshot of the mirrors I have available?

A screenshot won't be necessary.

I'm really puzzled with this cannot be downloaded stuff :?

Does this work sudo apt-get install nfs-common

If it does just let me know and you can get rid of it with sudo apt-get purge nfs-common

I want to see if this cannot be downloaded stuff is isolated to these particular packages.

Hi WarfRat,

I don't mean to intrude, but I think the reason for the "it cannot be downloaded" is it wants to get version 18.x which is in the bionic repo and xenial only goes to 17.2.8.

Code: Select all

daniel-GA-MA78GM-US2H daniel # apt-get download libgl1-mesa-dri
E: Can't find a source to download version '18.0.0~git20180214+18.0.1e173463-0ubuntu0ricotz~16.04.1' of 'libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64'
I don't understand most of your terminal command fu but hoped this might assist.

I welcome the intrusion and I think you're on to something here :D

Isn't that repo an official ubuntu mirror :?:

@Daniel_AYA-AZZ,

Try disabling that repo and see what happens.

I don't think he has that repo. The edgers-ppa he previously disabled (I think) installed newer versions than are contained in xenial repos.

From a previous termbin:

Code: Select all

libgl1-mesa-dri:
  Installed: 18.0.0~git20180214+18.0.1e173463-0ubuntu0ricotz~16.04.1

I installed this system the other day and this is my version

Code: Select all

[bill@slvm] ~ $ apt-cache policy libgl1-mesa-dri
libgl1-mesa-dri:

So I see it's insisting on getting a newer package.

Mmh... nope, I still get the same error:

Could you recommend me any mirror I should use to download this? Or is this something else?

The problem is the packages you installed are taking precedence over the official versions.

change the Pin-Priority to 100 than try to apt-get download libgl1-mesa-dri

Don't worry if you can't respond quickly. I've been very busy myself, so... Anyway, I checked /etc/apt/preferences.d/official-extra-repositories.pref and changed Pin-Priority to 100. But apt-get download libgl1-mesa-dri failed. Here's the result:

Please remove them.

What I meant for you to do was to replace the content of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list with the list I posted.

Adding them in software sources is now causing the configured multiple times messages.

Wow, nothing seems to work here :roll:

I would seriously consider a reinstallation at this juncture as I'm not even sure if reinstalling all of the dri and glx packages would solve the graphics problem.

You can give dpkg -l|egrep 'mesa|drm'|awk '{print $2}'|xargs sudo apt-get install --reinstall one more Hail Mary shot.

If that still fails................. :(

I see that as the only possible option at this time.

Just be aware that everything on that HDD will be wiped so backup/copy anything you couldn't survive without to another media.

Good luck :wink:

Thanks. Uh, I'll bother you with just one more thing. How could I do it? I mean, I've formatted PCs before, but never with Linux. I don't know what to do exactly or how?
