I need help with Ubuntu 18.04 updates. I haven’t found this question asked so far. I’m running Lubuntu on a MacBook Pro 2011 with a burnt graphics card. I managed 2 years ago to switch it completely to Lubuntu Xenial and it all worked fine until I upgraded to Bionic Beaver last year. All still works fine except for the software updates which haven’t updated even once since the upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04.
In the Terminal I do a
sudo apt-get update (runs fine) followed by an
apt-get upgrade. I get the following:
~$ sudo apt-get update [sudo] password for bo: Hit:1 http://mirrors.neterra.net/ubuntu bionic InRelease Hit:2 http://mirrors.neterra.net/ubuntu bionic-updates InRelease Hit:3 http://mirrors.neterra.net/ubuntu bionic-backports InRelease Hit:4 http://mirrors.neterra.net/ubuntu bionic-security InRelease Reading package lists... Done ~$ sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.
Graphic interface works similarly. In Software Updater I get a “The software of this computer is up-to-date” message, which it definitely cannot be.
So far all I have managed with my Linux is from reading Ubuntu forums and my common sense, I’m not a Linux expert so I do need to ask for help. I suppose there’s a broken repository link but I can’t figure this out by myself. Do you have a suggestion to try?
