Re: [tlug] Ubuntu update woes

Hello Ralph,
Which version of Ubuntu? I'm running 8.04 and I see I have 56 updates
waiting. (And having seen your message they'll wait a bit longer :-)

I can see "libaudiofile0" wants to update to 0.2.6-7ubuntu1.8.04.1
It also wants to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.24-27-server. Some mention of
cameras in there, which perhaps includes scanners too?

Have you rebooted since the upgrade? If so, try rebooting again but
choosing the previous kernel.

...reading your post more carefully (about distros being disabled) I
think my advice is no use - you've gone from one ubuntu version to
another, and going back is basically not possible. I had the same
problem when going from 7 to 8.04 [1][2]
