I ran an a software update today and noticed that the grub menu says Ubuntu now instead of Peppermint as the first item.  Also, the system returns the following:

Did the update to Peppermeint 5 do something wrong?  What should I do to fix this?  Thanks.

I could be wrong, but I don't think Team Peppermint is still releasing updates for Peppermint 5.  So, you probably downloaded some updates from the official Ubuntu repos for the LTS release that overwrote something that was set by Peppermint.  I wouldn't worry too much about it.  After all, Peppermint 5 is technically Ubuntu, just with a different desktop environment and some other changes.  ;)  Any OS based on Ubuntu's source code is still Ubuntu underneath.

Now, if it said "Fedora," I'd worry.   :o

I'm going to do a test install of P5 on VirtualBox, update it and see if I get the same thing.

Well, I did a test install in VirtualBox and updated and it still says "Peppermint Five" when I run inxi -F.  I honestly don't know how or why yours says "Ubuntu."   ???  Though, I'm running 64-bit, not 32-bit, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

inxi gets its "Distro" info from "/etc/issue"
but
GRUB gets the distro name from "/etc/lsb-release"

both are contained in the "base-files" package, so I can only assume that for some reason your system downloaded the Ubuntu version of "base-files"

can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep base-files

I don't know how that could have happened.  As you requested, see below:

$ dpkg -l | grep base-files
ii  base-files                                                  7.2ubuntu5.2                                                i386         Debian base system miscellaneous files

Not sure why it is so jumbled looking.  Any help you could give would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Hi jlschwartz,


It actually looks quite normal. Mine looks like this:
Spoiler (click here to view / hide)

ii  base-files                           7.2ubuntu5.2+peppermint2         i386    Debian base system miscellaneous files
[close]
Yours is just missing the "+peppermint2" part.

It's just unnerving for me to see Ubuntu and not Peppermint in Grub and the system info.  I can't figure out what could have caused this.  Hopefully, I can fix it.  Thanks.

Did you by chance at any time remove the peppermint system packages?

I didn't remove anything knowingly.  The system said updates were available and I installed them and when I rebooted after that it was this way.  If I did something, I didn't know it.  Thanks.

I'm sure you didn't, I was just grasping at straws.   :-\

Hi jlschwartz,


You're welcome. As long as everything is working without any hiccups and nothing seems to be missing, then I don't think that you should worry about this. Think of it more as  "behind the scenes cosmetic blemish"   :P

If you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall base-files
now what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep base-files
and
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep peppermint
?

PCNetSpec,
I tried what you asked and got the following:

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall base-files
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Reinstallation of base-files is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.

Also, if I go to repositories in Synaptic the first one now says Ubuntu instead of Peppermint.  Maybe that's why it cannot download the base files? :-\
