Software Updater wants me to upgrade distribution?

Asked by Sergey Zolotarev on 2012-12-15

Few times a day an anoying window pops up telling me that "Not all updates can be installed". If I proceed, this thing begins what it calls "distribution upgrade". But I'm already on the newest Ubuntu release (12.10)! Is it OK?

I just don't want to scew something up so I thought I'd be better off if I ask here first...

Yes , good thought !

Just open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and apply the 2 commands below

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Do not afraid the dist-upgrade , it will NOT upgrade the distribution , only the packages and will resolve any dependencies.

If any errors occurred , post the full results of above commands , plus the below command , back here.

$ find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \;

Thank you.
