  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: GeForce 8500 GT / Nvidia 340.76
When I run:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
the kernel and LibreOffice are never updated:



As a result LL kernel is still 3.13.0-24, while Xubuntu on another partition is running on kernel 3.13.0.32. At the same time LL's underlying Ubuntu version has apparently been upgraded from 14.04 to 14.04.1. Is this by design or do I have some settings mixed up?



Here are my repository settings:

LL 2.4, Xubuntu 14.04.2, Debian 8, Manjaro

As Valtam said here update your system only via Install Updates.

I have 3.13.0-32-generic kernel at LL 2.0 32bit (x86). Because you have the x64 version maybe that's the case.

When you have a closer look at what's behind "Install Updates", which can be easily done by analyzing that entry in Alacarte (Main Menu), you will see that "Install Updates" is nothing more than a script that runs the command mentioned at the beginning of my first post:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
LL 2.4, Xubuntu 14.04.2, Debian 8, Manjaro

I would recommend upgrading LibreOffice as there is a bug in the current version, see this thread here https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php?topic=736

I'm curious Valtam -- what is the difference between upgrading LibreOffice through Synaptic vs. through the normal Updates script (which is identical to Kirkx's commands)?

I had thought that since the LibreOffice PPA is being used, that would pull in the latest updates/upgrades for it.  If that's not the case, then what is the PPA pulling in?

I'm going to add a Held Packages section to the next version of the Help Manual.
