Re: apt-get upgrade problem on Jessie




Thanks for the reply, it helped a lot -- I seem to have one problem remaining (below).

Ok, I did the apt-get install firmware-realtek and that got rid of the

complaints about the 8168.

df told me that /var was at 100%, and /boot was at 98%.

 

I did some drastic deletions in /var, and then tried upgrade again and it

became apparent that I had deleted some essential directories and files,

but the error messages told me what they were so I recreated them.

 

Aside: I should increase the size of /var and maybe /boot -- they both (of similar size) seem very adequate in my Wheezy system (still in service).

 

And then, ran apt-get upgrade again and the problems and that got rid of the problems with:

 

linux-image-3.16.0-7-amd64

linux-image-amd64

initramfs-tools

 

(I feel much better now that the linux images are installed.)

 

But now I'm at this point:

 

root@s31:~# apt-get upgrade

Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree

Reading state information... Done

Calculating upgrade... Done

The following packages have been kept back:

firmware-linux-nonfree

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

root@s31:~#

 

I don't know that I'm worried about that, but if someone knows what I need

to do, I'll try it.
