    • I hope you aren't setting up a VPS or Dedi atm, when you don't even understand the simplest error messages.

      Software is like sex, it's better when it's free!

      @Ympker edit /etc/apt/sources.list and replace archive.ubuntu.com with old-releases.ubuntu.com
      and then apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y

    • Why don't people at least try to google before opening a thread about every little issue they face?

      maybe they also don't know how to google for something like such issues.
      of course it's a matter of terms and/or phrases and if you don't know how to sharpen your search in first place, the results probably wont tell you anything.

      Because it's apparently easier and more convenient to get serviced by the LowEndHelpDesk rather than taking a mere two seconds to look at the error message to determine what's not right, or one second to look it up on a search engine...

      Also, clusterfuck.

      Duplicate entry '1533973' for key 'PRIMARY'|Gdn_Database|Query|insert GDN_Comment (`Body`, `DiscussionID`, `InsertUserID`, `Format`, `DateInserted`, `InsertIPAddress`) values (:Body, :DiscussionID, :InsertUserID, :Format, :DateInserted, :InsertIPAddress)

      Ubuntu 14.10 is EOL. The repo isn't in that location anymore. You should avoid using non LTS releases.

      Hmm, you're not the OP? Anyway, if you don't want advice don't read it. Non LTS releases won't receive security updates in most cases and should either be upgraded to the next version on EOL, or you should use LTS releases.

      If to "let you be" I must avoid offering absolutely critical advice that is fundamental to running a server, no thanks, enjoy the unwelcome advice.

      It was a joke ;)

      The OP doesn't seem to like people who comment anything other than what he's looking for, which he could easily get from taking 5 seconds on Google.

    • Don't tell me you have operating systems running apt-get dist-upgrade since 3.0 without reinstalls.
