comment After update, Ubuntu booting into black screen (but ssh working)
You're more likely to get help here if you state a specific question. For example, "Why doesn't the display awake from sleep when I press enter?" or, "Why isn't my web server running, even though I can connect via ssh?"

comment Ubuntu maintenance general advice
nifty tip/trick: You can create your own repository of ubuntu packages. Then you can update the repo, and then update your systems from that. Otherwise if you have a rolling update of your systems going on, they may not all match because the Ubuntu repo is a moving target. eg, help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Personal

comment Upgrade a package
...then you will need to consider installing rdiff-backup by hand. You might be able to find a pre-built package for it (no idea where, sorry.) I'd guess you'll need to d/l the source and compile it. But you're beyond your original question now -- you cannot upgrade this package via apt-get when you are in 8.04.

comment Upgrade a package
What version of ubuntu? ...desktop or server version? And "apt-get update" (as root of course) should update your repository information... does that generate output to indicate it can see the repositories when it runs?

comment No network loopback device after security update ubuntu 12.04
...me too on 12.04.2. Machine boots fine, but no 'lo' shown by ifconfig. "ifup lo" brings it right up and then all is well (after stop/start of some servers that weren't happy without lo at boot.) You ever figure this out?
