I cannot install oracle-java12-installer due to being unable to accept the license agreement through the terminal. Furthermore, I am unable to install, remove, or purge any packages without reinstalling the oracle-java12-installer. It is as if oracle’s Java has locked down dpkg.
Knowing that some pypi packages have a history of being malicious, like libpeshnx, libpesh, and libari.
is there some website/service that labels packages as secure or not?, like https://www.npmjs.com/advisories
if not, why such service does not exist at this point?
I’m trying to update my Ubuntu 18.04 computer that does not have internet connection. However the process is failing when I try to run
sudo apt upgrade. I have checked a couple of other links like: sol1, sol2 and sol3.
I have set up apt-offline on my offline computer we can call OC1, and I have also set it up on my online computer we can call OC2. I set up a signature file on my OC1, I then bring the file over to OC2, and use the command
sudo apt-offline get apt-offline.sig --bundle apt-offline-update.zip. It downloads all the packages to that zip file and I then bring that file over to OC1.
Great at this point everything is normal and running as I expect it to. Now I install the package with this command:
sudo ./apt-offline install /home/fletchy/Desktop/MyPC/apt-offline-update.zip I select
Yes (Y) when prompted to install and it installs the packages. However it just syncs them all. However I suppose that make sense because now I would just do a normal
sudo apt upgrade and I’ll update and I’ll be good to go. However, when I run
sudo apt upgrade it runs as if its looking at the internet to install these packages not my
cache or directories.
I get errors like:
Err:## http://... Could not resolve 'us.archive.ubuntu.com'
E: Failed to fetch http....deb Could not resolve 'us.archive.ubuntu.com'
What I would expect to get is a successful install of the packages and update of the system. Perhaps I’m missing something small, I’ve used Linux for awhile now but never had to update packages offline until recently and I’m encountering this problem. I’ve attempted to reboot the system, and restart the entire update process from scratch.
So there are two PPA causing GPG warning during
sudo apt update
W: GPG error: https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com bionic InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 4FE13824E3FFC656 E: The repository 'https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com bionic InRelease' is not signed.

I want to remove these PPA from my system how to do that at once?

Why? I don’t understand why installing

Finally, for some reason, if I boot up my machine with my Ethernet cable plugged in, my wired connection will not work: even if I replug it, even if I tell my laptop to forget the network. However, if I boot up my system with my Ethernet cable unplugged, and then plug it it after it lands on the desktop, it works just fine. The Wi-Fi works perfectly fine regardless.
I’m painfully watching my
apt dist-upgrade command download each package in a very long list, and what makes it painful is that packages are downloaded one-by-one. I fail to see why this process couldn’t be sped up by downloading multiple packages simultaneously!
For example, if apt is downloading Chrome (PPA), Syncthing (PPA), and Ubuntu system updates (non-PPA), three simultaneous downloads will begin, one for Chrome, one for Syncthing, and one for the Ubuntu system updates.
Since all update packages are downloaded before any installation even begins, I don’t see any reason why multiple packages for Ubuntu system updates coming from a single repository can’t be downloaded in parallel.
I would really like to know if anyone knows a way to make this happen? Can I downloaded multiple package upgrade files in parallel from a single repository when running
apt dist-upgrade or
I have some problems downloading and installing not one but several programs/software et cetera.
This is what I get every time: some broken packages. I tryed every single solution suggested in every single posted question of people with the same problem. Nothing worked.

I would like to get the details about all the available packages in apt without installing them. I know that
apt-cache search . would give me the list and description of all the available packages. However, I’m interested in the same list but with the most recent version. Is it possible?
I also know that I can loop over the package names and run
apt-cache show pkgName, but I do not want to make multiple queries to apt-cache. I want to query it only once or use another tool or another available resource that could give me this info.
I upgraded one of my desktop PCs from Ubuntu Studio 18.04.3 to 19.04.
Now, the Packages Manager (GUI to Upgrade packages) and the Software Center don’t work!
Both apps start to run but… They are indicating that something are doing, but… It seems to wait forever I don’t know what!
What’s wrong here?
How can I fix it?
