I opened the Terminal and entered these lines:

sudo apt-get install synaptic
Ok. Scatch this. The filled in green dots appear to indicate what is already installed.

I just did the same thing but skipped the upgrade. I can see the following ubuntu upgrades in Synaptic:

ubuntu-release-ugrader-core 1:16.04.14
ubuntu-release-upgrader-gtk 1:16.04.14

These are automatically selected (square filled in with green). I presume these are what has been identified on my system and it automatically selects them for updating. Should I go ahead and update everything automatically selected or is that risky?

It doesn't appear that the release was updated. Here is the output you requested:
  • ubuntu-mate@ubuntu-mate:~$ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
    Release: 16.04
    Codename: xenial
Apparently I need to do something else to upgrade the release. At least I have Synaptic now.

Unfortunatly it doesn't support 3D my 7700 series graphics card but it seems to work well with Libre Office. Currently running 16.04.1 LTS with Kernel 4.18 installed on the CF card.

I'm running into the same update issues as xeno74 so I'm following along closely. Just wanted to let you know that more than one person is being helped by this thread. Thanks!
Just to clarify: xeno74 is the one who has been helping me and I'm xenic (the novice he's helping). You're lucky you got a CF card recognized. I made the mistake of partitioning my CF card with Amiga OS and it took me 2 days to fix it and get it recognized by CFE and Linux.

Yes, my mistake and apologies to xeno74.

As another data point. I executed the lsb_release command as well and received the same response you did.

ubuntu-mate@ubuntu-mate:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial

I'm not sure how to get updated to that latest either.

Maybe something is missing in /etc/apt/sources.list. For example xenial-updates. Could you please post your sources.list?

Here is my sources.list:

When I entered the commands update & upgrade I don't think I had as many sources set.

I managed to get updated to ubuntu Mate 16.04.5 with these commands:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo atp-get dist-upgrade
However, there were several errors as shown here:
  • Errors were encountered while processing:
    cryptsetup
    ubiquity
    ubiquity-frontend-gtk
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    ubuntu-mate@ubuntu-mate:~$ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS
    Release: 16.04
    Codename: xenial
However, that doesn't get me any closer to updating Firefox. I D/L firefox-52.5.2esr-1-32-bit-linux-powerpc.tar.gz but don't see any way to install it in ubuntu.

Hi Xenic,

It seems it is necessary to do an apt-get dist-upgrade for an update from 16.04.1 to 16.04.5. Thanks for the hint! :-)

Cheers,
