I can't enable KXstudio repositories after upgrading to 18.04

Postby Nurox » Mon Jan 14, 2019 7:59 am

Hello, I've been trying Lubuntu and KXStudio on my old P4 machine for about a year. GREAT STUFF.
I got a problem since I updated to Lubuntu 18.04 LTS. I can't enable anything other than "canonical partners" in the update preferences, and automatic updates always fail: I have to update Ubuntu through the terminal. Kxstudio isn't touched. I'm relatively new to Linux -first time I upgrade from an LTS to another (I must say I didn't even think about KXStudio when I upgraded to 18.04), I must be missing something, any ideas? Do I have to re-enable the repos or something?

tl;dr reinstall the repos

Ubuntu disables all ppa when upgrading. They are renamed.
What I did is just delete the old ppa files and reinstalled the kx stuff and other ppa I needed

If you want you can paste the output of

Code: Select all

ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

here and I'll have a look.

I deleted and reinstalled the repos like you suggested. Everything is up to date, but the software updater still insists on telling me there are new updates available everytime I boot up the computer. What should I do?

Erm.. Update?
Does the updater give an indication what needs to be updated?

I'm just subbing this thread as I am thinking of upgrading to 18.04 Ubuntu from 16.04.5 and my learning curve is already steep. I just want to know what happens in this case for a solution if any. KXstudio is a candidate for my setup I am building. :wink:

Hm, I have had bad experiences with updating the system. Now I do it like this:
I keep a root partition for the OS, which does not have to be that large, plus it is on a SSD drive if possible. The /home is on another partition or disk. I then do not upgrade the OS itself, but install it freshly and just mount the /home partition back. Voila.

Some applications I compile from source, but this is mostly just install the correct development packages with apt and then recompile and install (mostly on /opt)

So far I haven't had problems with 18.04 and KXStudio with this method of installation. Haven't checked if u-he Zebra works though, this is what I still have to do...

lg,
Michael

I don't upgrade.
Back up my files and clean install

I do:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Everything should be up to date, no?
The updater pops up; I click "install" but nothing happens. I don't know how to erm update more than that.
Actually, I realise I have Kernel 4.15.0.36.38 (both generic and low-latency), and the available updates are for 4.15.0.43.45. No idea what to do with that info though.

Yeah, clean install! That's probably what I will do next time I'm tempted to upgrade.. Thanks for the suggestion.

I upgraded from 16 to 18 and it was mostly pain free and easy. The only issue I had was with ppas but just remove and add them again and you're good. Just make sure you have a backup of everything, including your ppas and installed packages, so if you need to reinstall at any time you can everything back up and running in no time. Also, it's a good idea to have a partition of / and one for /home, that way if you have to reinstall you can do it and all your music, documents, and settings etc will still be there.
