is there a way to review what updates i have gotten and which might be the one i declined?  much thanks for the help, tomt
You can check log file under /var/log/apt directory.  Will be file called "history.log" under it that you can open and inspect with your text editor, leafpad.  Will list most recent packages installed/updated, but I don't think it will show how you answered configuration file question (keep or replace?).

In all likelihood the two config files that the updater asked you about were /etc/issue and /etc/lsb-release.  Since you answered "No" to one and "Yes" to the other, one of yours is different now than it should be.  Here are commands that will show you what yours look like followed by what you should see.  Compare your command results to what they should be and if one of them does not read the same, you will need to edit the file and change it back.

First command:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/issue
What you should see as output:
Code: [Select]
Linux Lite 2.0 LTS \n \l

Second command:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/lsb-release
What you should see as output:
Code: [Select]
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=trusty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Lite 2.0"


Once you see which of the two files needs to be changed, follow directions as posted here for the particular file you are changing.  You can follow directions starting at this point in that post:
Code: [Select]
To make the change
1. Open the file manager, Thunar
2. Navigate to the /etc folder in Thunar

The post describes changing the /etc/lsb-release file.  If you need to change /etc/issue, just substitute that and follow same procedure to change it.

hmm. well.. in conjunction; the very first system update, which was just after i installed; i got the huge list of green text of things being downloaded and installed,,etc.. i did get 2 stop's where i was told something wanted to modify something and did i want to or not, with default being not; the first instance [i have no idea what it pertained to] i selected default,or no, the second i allowed after having a minute to think about it all. i thought i could "catch" the first request on a subsequent update. i was wrong. i havent gotten the option again. is there a way to review what updates i have gotten and which might be the one i declined?  much thanks for the help, tomt

I assume you ran Install Updates after your new install? If so, and it still shows no drivers then you have to use the one that is already provided. Not all machines for a variety of reasons, require proprietary drivers.
