Installation / Re: Update error

Thanks Andy - everyday's a school day  ::)

Hope this is correct will re-post with the image uploaded  ;)

I noticed some updates available last night in the update manager so opened it up. There were 4 but there was a warning message that they weren't authenticated so despite the high security status of them I was going to wait & find some more information about the warning before installing - however I got distracted & inadvertently started the installation process. I cancelled the process but the manager installed the update with an error message which I didn't catch. I am pretty sure the error occurred only on the first of the four its the one highlighted:



 Please could you advise me what to do.
Cheers

What are you running Peppermint on? / Peppermint 6 on Dell Inspiron 1501
« on: February 21, 2016, 04:20:49 pm »
Hello this is my first post after installing your wonderful OS on my not so bleeding edge laptop. I was running Slitaz 4 which was pretty good & exceedingly fast, as long as the application wasn't too heavy - for e.g. Firefox which often hung & crashed, also it required a fair bit of researching to get things to work & a lot of the software packages were quite old, though whether that is a bad thing I'm not 100% on.
Anyway I decided I wanted a changed & after a good look around, reading & watching reviews I ended up here & boy am I impressed. I have really only used Win XP, Win 7 & Slitaz 4 but to have such a good functioning OS on this old laptop is brilliant so many thanks.

These are my Hardware Specs:

Originally I had only 512MB RAM & I was struggling multi-tasking so I did a cheap upgrade to 2GB, which is the maximum for this old girl, & its much better.

Also initially I couldn't connect to WiFi but after researching this excellent forum & reading "CAN'T CONNECT WIFI(SOLVED)" in the Networking section of Support - specically http://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,2879.15.html & following PCNetSpec's instructions in reply #15 the problem was solved - so thank you for that.

So although its only been a couple of weeks I'm  a happy bunny & glad to be a Pepperminto  ;)
