  • Linux Lite: 3.8 64bit
This might explain the issue I'm having.

I had an older Linux Lite deployment in a Proxmox VM (QEMU) that I used occasionally. I installed the latest updates yesterday and after reboot I no longer got a login screen. When I connected to it remotely via No Machine, the client said that no display was configured and offered to configure one. This happens after every reboot, but locally I can no longer log in. The video adapter for the VM in Proxmox is set to "vmware compatible". At first I thought the new kernel was the issue, but even booting with the old kernel did not fix the issue. I remember that the virtualbox-guest-* packages were part of the latest updates.

I then just wiped the VM and recreated it from scratch, installing Linux Lite 3.8 64-bit. It all went OK and was able to boot into it, but after the first series of updates the same thing happened. Black screen at boot, no login prompt. Switching the VM's video adapter to something else doesn't fix the issue.

Assuming I've run into this bug, how can I fix it after the fact?

I'm running it (in a few places) on VirtualBox... and I've long ago done the following:

  • I have auto log in on
  • I did install 3rd party items during install
  • the guest items have been installed

Any way I can fix the installations or do I need to rebuild the VMs?

The exact problem I'm having is that some programs won't open such as (but not only) Firefox, Chromium, Lite Tweaks, and System Log...


Update, I've fixed it

For others, I've fixed it by removing the packages listed above. I'll now follow the advice and hold those packages for now.

  • sudo apt-get remove virtualbox-guest-x11
  • sudo apt-get remove virtualbox-guest-utils
  • sudo apt-get remove virtualbox-guest-dkms

I had to install LL 3.8 x64 in VirtualBox this weekend.
Installed "3rd party..." during setup.
Put the three suggested apt-mark suggested by @trinidad and updated without problem.
Tools still worked afterwards (not broken).
But, was wondering if the problem was fixed in updates of maybe Lite Updates was modifed to prevent the problem?

Cheers!

I  had this problem which meant that some of the graphic applications that accessed the internet (Chrome, Team Viewer) wouldn't work although I could carry out an upgrade from the terminal.  I have 2 devices running LL 3.8 an Intel laptop and an AMD desktop.  The Intel laptop has not been affected but the AMD desktop has been.  Did a bit of googling and found this solution on a Linux Mint forum:

I removed the virtualbox related packages and the destop started working immediately on a reboot.  Have updated LL files subsequently and it is still working.

Maybe put this in sticky? Seems to come up regularly... until the issue is fixed I guess.

Howdy, can you please let me know how you got that, "Update Manager" in LL?

Thanks, in advance.

I believe that it hasn't been fixed. Those updates come from upstream and they are pulling bionic updates which certainly causes issues with xenial (LL 3.x). Users on the 4.x (beta) should be able to install them without problems; for 3.x users those updates should be avoided.

We're not the only Distro experiencing this. Mint for example is to despite their 'safe updates' methodology. Thanks to the wonderful folks here, the fix is documented.

I know Jerry, it's not just a Linux Lite thingy, I was NOT pointing a finger like the angry monkey.

@Kurt_R here.

I just installed LL 4.0, does this "Update Manager" option still work in 4?
I guess I can try it out myself but didn't want to break anything majorly.
