Hi :)

since the last days, I have got Problems with LMDE-Installation.
(The other LMDEs, I have installed, when LMDE came out in Sept.10, are running perfectly.)
This means only a new LMDE-Installation .. http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=66

After Ground-Installation of LMDE .. the System works perfect, but:

After Installation of First-627-Updates, there is a Problem: LMDE doesnt boot again: "Warnins" & "Failed" ...
I Know the bug of Mint-deskop viewtopic.php?f=141&t=61063
Before updating this 627 upps, I do

Code: Select all

apt update
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/mintdesktop.prerm
apt install mintdesktop

but when the first 627 upps are finished,
there is a Mistake-Warning .. ".. can not be read .." or ".. can not be unlocked.." and so on ..
(sry, I dont know the exact words of the Warning-Windows)
.. and LMDE freezes and the Update-Program doesnt close automatically.

The System must be tilted with power-button on the PC.
Is there anybody, who can help?

Sry about my English!! Greetings from Germany :)
Thx a lot & bye , J .

Instead of using mintUpdate, open up a terminal and paste the following commands:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Paste back here with the exact error message(s) you get after running an apt-get dist-upgrade.
