Well I definitely don't want to hose my OS, the whole point of installing MonoDevelop in the first place was to continue to develop .NET applications, but under Linux (since I don't intend to continue using Windows beyond Windows 7, but I still need to develop for it). Since these are new installations of Linux Lite, I can redo them without too much impact. Would that be the recommended process? or is there a way to roll back from my current MonoDevelop installation and then install an older one from the default repositories.

Just wondering? Not pretending to understand what you are needing either. Being a Linux using biker and all.
But have you looked at

https://github.com/dotnet

That is where Microsoft is porting .net to be able to be worked on in Linux.

Yeah the official Ubuntu 14.04 PPAs will let me install MonoDevelop v4.0, but it's a bit old. The current version is v5.9 and there have been many bug fixes and feature editions since v4.0. I could always attempt to build it from source (but that's another bag of worms). A friend recommended I search across LauchPad.net fist , and I found this PPA:

https://launchpad.net/~ermshiperete/+archive/ubuntu/monodevelop-beta

which appears to include v5.9.0.431 built for 14.04 (trusty).

Still being new to Linux, I figured I'd ask you guys if that seems like a legit way to get the software I need without having to build it myself.


** Strangely enough, the repo listed above is listed as obsolete, and then points to the original instructions I followed that had me add the Debian PPAs to my system...

I guess the maintainer has other issues in life.

Sadly, we are few and far between. I used to maintain pianobar for Puppy Linux users till I got burned out doing it every week trying to keep up with pandora breaking it on purpose.

In the subject of this thread, can you change the word "suck" to "stuck"?

Oh wow, sorry, that was a legitimate typo. I've fixed it.

So I started to investigate .NET Core, but ran into the same exact issue... check out the "Installing .NET Core on Linux" documentation:

http://dotnet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/getting-started/installing-core-linux.html

it asks me to install the latest mono, and points me to more Debian packages.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mono-complete

but reading over that guide it states the .NET 5 Core team is using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, so they're including Debian repos under Ubuntu as well... it seems like this is pretty much unavoidable if I want to keep to LTS, but develop using the latest tools. I mean I was able to get Visual Studio Code (their cross platform editor) installed and running without issue (it was just a zip). But now I'm at another road block.

anyone have any other suggestions?

If you don't get the issue from the command I supplied, but you do with the GUI, then the GUI runs a different command.  I wouldn't recommend giving up on the GUI.  It's doing what it's supposed to do.  And in your case, it's letting us know something is odd.  The GUI also more than likely produces a log even when you cancel out of the process.  I just don't know where that log file is.  Perhaps someone else will chime in.

Did you try Edit, Fix Broken Packages within Install/Remove Software?

Also consider Lite Tweaks (Menu, System, Lite Tweaks).  The Autoremove Packages and Package Cache are safe options.

Just as a heads up, it appears the GUI updater is a script run from /usr/scripts/updates-gui and it generates a log in /var/logs/llupdates.log. However I'm not sure if this file is generated line for line while the updates are running, or if it is only generated after the updates are done all in one shot. Just wanted to let you know, since I was able to track these down.
