Apt-get runs perfectly fine in a chroot. The problem is that you seem to be trying to install packages which I believe is a DKMS kernel module. These type of packages include post-install scripts that detect the running try to detect the running kernel and build an appropriate module. The modules related to the running kernel off your rescuecd are not in ...

Turned out that I had to try different repos for apt-get. So I have edited Ubuntu Main Repos section in /etc/apt/sources.list and changed server addresses to different ones. I also have included universe and multiverse repos. From these: deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ ...

This is just the normal package installation.. Just let it download, it could be because the hosting server is busy addressing too many requests simultaneously because of which it is taking quite a lot of time. More about this package here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=gsfonts

will a restart be required will the system be stable/functional until the restart if required will users have to log out before I run apt for updates to succeed You should probably restart if this includes glibc and kernel updates.

In Linux, like I think in all Unixes, when a process has an open file, it can continue to access it even if you delete it. After deletion the file is unreachable by other processes (there is no directory entry for it), but processes that had opened it before deletion can continue to access it using the handle the kernel gave them when they had opened it. The ...

According to https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/amd64/mysql-server, that particular version has been superseded by mysql-5.5 5.5.29-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 (which in turn has a long chain up to 5.5.40-0ubuntu0.12.04.1). I'm guessing that most mirrors remove superseded versions to save space. With a little searching around, you can probably find a mirror (maybe ...

Installing the MySQL "linux generic" binary (pre-compiled, not "source") distribution from the tarballs is painfully straightforward... you extract the tarball, cd into the directory, and start it, and multiple versions coexist on the same machine, in different directories, with no conflict... On Ubuntu, the only noteworthy dependency is libaio1, which you ...

The answer turned out to be much simpler than I had expected: In a terminal I typed in software-properties-gtk and under 'Ubuntu Software' I ticked all the sources. After that I did an update and tried installing again and it worked! Thanks for the useful suggestions Peter Horvath.

I have fixed it by comment of Glueon. And it is working fine now. Had the same problem. sudo apt-get clean; sudo apt-get update didn't help. As i remember i removed securiy repo, did apt-get update, then added it back and apt-get update once again.

Similar to @theterribletrivium answer but even simpler why not use apt-proxy which was designed specifically for this - and may even be available as an official package depending on your distro ?

Simple is relative, but most web proxies offer caching functionality either by default or with minimal configuration. Simply install a web proxy of some kind and point your proxy configuration to this system. We're generally asked to avoid naming specific products, but Squid can work in this instance. With squid specifically the configuration directive you ...

Ah, it turned out that adding the PPA had failed so its packages weren't available. Adding the PPA failed because the add-apt-repository command wasn't available. This was resolved by first apt-get install python-software-properties. Here's the complete solution: apt-get install python-software-properties add-apt-repository -y ...

Well, I did a check and realized that the extra lines in the sources.list file to be missing the "universe" line at the end of the list. So I added it to something like this: deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu precise main universe and deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu precise main universe ran apt-get update , and it works.

My suggestion is to run: apt-get update Before attempting to install the software with apt-get install, to ensure that the right package names, locations and dependency lists are set up on your machine before it tries to grab all the packages. Seems simple but it's fixed problems with similar errors for me in the past.
