Title: Installing updates failure when clicking menu to install updates
Post by: kat on July 30, 2020, 03:25:18 PM
Hi,  I've had the new LTS 5.0 Linux-Lite since it came out. The below warning happens when I turn on the computer and go right to menus > install updates to see if there are any updates. BUT, a few minutes later, there will be a notice on the top right of my screen to install updates which fades out after a few seconds. After that notice, going to menu and checking for updates works. So, it looks like there are two, whatever you call them, looking for updates at the same time, and one bumps off the other. So how does that get fixed? *When I first installed the new installation, I typed in the terminal, "sudo apt-get update". Maybe that screwed something up at first.                                                                                                                                                                     Thanks, Karen
