Trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 from the MS Store – get error “Something happened on our end…”

I am running Windows 10.0.17134 with the Windows Linux Subsystem (or whatever it’s called) installed. When I attempt to install Ubuntu 18.04, the MS store tells me “Try that again” “Something happened on our end. Waiting a bit might help.”

However, I can install the older version from 2017, which I’m sure you all know isn’t good enough.

Spoiler Alert: waiting does nothing. Neither does rebooting, nor resetting the store to defaults, nor does MS Store troubleshooter (I was getting desperate, despite the fact that a Windows troubleshooter has never done anything, ever).

Anyone have any potential solutions? Workarounds?

16.04 – 32 bit Ubuntu online upgrade to 18.04 Failure

I had gotten the message on my software updater that there was an update from 16.04 to 18.04 and it appeared valid. I had been putting it off as I usually wait before moving to the latest LTS release. Long story short I finally chose to update and now I’m stuck. It appears to be booting up but then goes to a blank screen and nothing seems to work. I try to get to a console by pressing Cntr + Alt + f1 and I get no prompt to login. went through all of the console sessions not one of them work. When I press the power button it appears to be shutting down I see the the Ubuntu splash screen and the laptop powers off. When I boot up I see the same splash screen and then it just goes to a blank screen?? Anyone have any thoughts?? Dam why would they allow an upgrade to process if the processor type is a miss-match?

Any help or direction on how to recover back to 16.04 would be helpful.

Thanks in advance…

Problem with python in Ubuntu 18.10

I recently upgraded to 18.10 from 18.04, but I am facing a new problem.

When I type python, I am getting this

Python 3.7.3 (default, Apr 9 2019, 04:56:51)

[GCC 8.3.0] on linux

But when I type python3, I am getting an error

bash: /usr/lib/command-not-found: /usr/bin/python3: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

I couldnt opem ny terminal so I changed the very first line of /usr/bin/gnome-terminal to:

!#usr/bin/python from #!usr/bin/python3 since then I am able to open my terminal. Upon entering sudo apt-get update I am getting this error

sh: 1: /usr/lib/cnf-update-db: not found Reading package lists... Done E: Problem executing scripts APT::Update::Post-Invoke-Success 'if /usr/bin/test -w /var/lib/command-not-found/ -a -e /usr/lib/cnf-update-db; then /usr/lib/cnf-update-db > /dev/null; fi' E: Sub-process returned an error code 

No matter whether I enter

pip

or

pip3

I am getting this error bash: /usr/local/bin/pip: /usr/bin/python3: bad interpreter: No such file or directory I tried sudo update-alternatives --config python3 I got There is only one alternative in link group python3 (providing /usr/bin/python3.6): /usr/bin/python3.7 Nothing to configure.

But when I type sudo update-alternatives --config python I am getting

There are 2 choices for the alternative python (providing /usr/bin/python). 

Selection Path Priority Status ------------------------------------------------------------

0 /usr/bin/python3.6 2 auto mode

* 1 /usr/bin/python3.6 2 manual mode

2 /usr/bin/python3.7 2 manual mode

What is the recommended way to have a software RAID1 desktop install in Ubuntu 19.04?

I have a system with 2 512GB SSDs that I’d like to install in RAID-1 configuration (including /boot) with Ubuntu Mate 19.04, without encryption.

In the past this was possible using the Alternate installer ISO, which is no more. The normal installer doesn’t include options to manually mark partitions for RAID and setup RAID, the closest I found was using the server install and then adding the desktop with tasksel. This brought other problems including unmanaged network, bluetooth not fully installed, etc.

In the past I’ve used Raider succesfuly to convert 1-disk installs to RAID with success but the project hasn’t any activity for almost 7 years.

The Software RAID documentation in the Ubuntu Wiki is also 4 years old although it looks like it could still work.

Have there been significant changes in Ubuntu 19.04 regarding software RAID ? Am I missing something in the standard installer or is it really not possible to have a desktop on RAID without manual paritioning ?

What would be the recommended, upgrade-able, best supported way to do this in Ubuntu 19.04 and later ?

Control dynamic power management options for Ubuntu 16.04

I want to test an application to verify (power v/s performance) how it works in different power options available for Ubuntu 16.04. In Ubuntu power management options, I only find sleep, hibernate, and power-off. However, I want more options to work on.

I found that TLP helps in advanced power management, but TLP works silently in the background and does power management. I really want to keep a power management option each time and check the application performance for the respective mode. Is there any tool that lets me do this.
