[SOLVED] Error message after update

So I updated my system via Synaptic, and after applying the changes this error message popped up. Is it anything to worry about? I rebooted the computer and it booted just fine, and is using the newest kernel.

Re: [SOLVED] Error message after update

check /var/log/apt/term.log and /var/log/dpkg.log for more info on the error.
(same upgrade from terminal, didn't cause any issues here.)

maybe try to reinstall from terminal and see if occurs again :
apt install --reinstall linux-image-amd64 linux-image-5.15.0-1-amd64

Hello:

Ron wrote:

Seems some part of the installation process may have not been fully completed.
eg: something not completely removed, dependencies not completed for some reason.

--- snip ---
linux-image-5.15.0-1-amd64 is not configured yet
--- snip ---

No idea why.

But you may want to try giving apt-get a chance to fix it:

sudo apt-get install --fix-broken

Hopefully, the output you get will either mark success or say what's going on or missing.

Best,

A.

Right ...

apt says those packages are no longer required.

Now you do this:

sudo apt autoremove && sudo apt install -f 

The first part (before &&) will remove the packages no longer required and the second part will look for and try to fix any missing dependencies you may have in the system.

Let's see what you get from that.

Best,

A.

Re: [SOLVED] Error message after update

Ron,

I'm not sure what may have happened.

I just got that update yesterday too, and it went fine.

Periodically, I'll run updates and they don't complete. Terminal output usually says something to the effect of "failed to connect to blah-blah-blah debian.org".

Follow Altoid's latest advice first.

If that doesn't correct it, I would try...

apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-amd64

I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Did all three of the above. To me, it looks like there isn't a problem (which makes me wonder why I got that error message). Or am I mistaken?

Doing as suggested by MiyoLinux included the next step I would have suggested to check the state your system was in:

$ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

As you can see, the terminal printout when reinstalling linux-image-amd64 reads:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 reinstalled, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

You may want to try it and see if it comes up clean ie:

~$ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
--- snip ---
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
All packages are up to date.
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.                # <- this
~$ 

If it does, we're done.
Unless you have any other issues, I think now you're good to go.  8^D

That said, in my opinion it is not by any means necessary to run a system on the latest kernel/bleeding edge.
Unless you have the latest hardware or are testing new things.

But then Debian most probably won't have native drivers ready and you will have to depend on the OEMs for that.

Until systemd and wayland reared their heads, it was all about stability and previsibility.
ie: the tried and true way of doing things in Debian.

Things have changed quite a bit, which is why we're here now.

Best,

A.

Could be a temp glitch in the script, caused by [ whatever could be ].

I've experienced it in my boxes a couple of times.
I just retried and that would be it.

This is Linux, not MS. ;^ )

As long as the glitches are not a constant ...

Just trying to give back a bit of the much I have received here at Dev1.
