I'm trying to update the kernel on Peppermint 5 and I cannot as it cannot find the packages when I run the command that PCNetSpec said to use.   I need to find out how to add the correct repository to get the package updates.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.  :-\

Unfortunately, jlschwartz, I have no idea what to do if you're experiencing this within Peppermint 5.  I didn't have any problem using the Trusty command within P5.  Somebody else, who has more knowledge concerning this kind of an issue, will have to take it from here.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help.  :(

[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

There's no additional "repo" to be added .. the command is directly from Ubuntu, and all required packages and dependencies are in the default repos:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack

It's gonna be hard to give guidance without you telling me what exactly is happening when you try to run that command ? ;)

Have you run a:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updatebefore running that command ?

Have you added any PPA's that might be causing conflicts ?

Here is what happens when I run that command:

lschwartz@jlschwartz-AOA150 ~ $ sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-core-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-vivid libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-vivid

E: Unable to locate package xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-vivid
E: Unable to locate package xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-vivid
E: Unable to locate package libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-vivid

I have run update first.  I don't know of any PPA's that I added that could be conflicting with this.  Any ideas you have would be appreciated.  Thanks. :-\

OK, all those packages ARE in the default repos (trusty-security and trusty-updates), at least they are in the gb server .. so try changing to a different server, and/or post the contents of:
Code: [Select]
gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Okay, you have trusty-updates disabled

First backup your sources.list file .. open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backupnow open sources list for editing:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.listand make it read:
Code: [Select]

SAVE the file and exit gedit.

Back in the terminal, update your package cache:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updatenow try the command to upgrade the kernel and xorg again



Once you're done and have rebooted, it'd probably be a good idea to do a full system upgrade too.

I'm afraid I did something wrong.  After I ran your first command to make the backup I then entered gedit to change the sources.list file but all that comes up in gedit is a white screen with nothing on it.  I'm not sure what to do from here.  I looked back at the command I did in the terminal it looked just like what you suggested so I don't know what happened.  Please help.  Thanks. :(

I must have not typed something correctly as sources.list is showing up now.  Sorry for being such a noob.  Working on making changes now.  By the way I did this is an acer ZG5 which I have the fan modification installed that you recommended.  Will that be a problem for this upgrade?

I noticed you said you're typing out the commands. 

Tip:  To reduce the possibility of typographical errors please click the Code: [Select] function.  This will copy the command.  This function is located just above the line containing the command.  Click on the centre mouse button/wheel while the mouse cursor is in the terminal window to paste the contents.  It'll save you making mistakes and potential disasters  ;).

So far everything is ok, except I seem to have lost the fan control.  Any ideas on that.
