Mint 20.3 Cinnamon version 5.2.7 wont update?

The update manager says - unable to install updates. Is there any thing I can do please?

Hey @Dartsdart and welcome to the forums!
Does the update manager give you any reasoning under the details?

Alternatively, you can open up a terminal and type in the following commands, one line at a time:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade -y

If it gives you any errors, you can perform the following process (on terminal again):

sudo apt update --fix-missing
sudo apt install -f
sudo dpkg --configure -a

The above should fix your problem, if it’s not internet-connectivity related. :slight_smile:

Thank you so much vasileios. It’s all up to date now. I purchased a new computer and had Linus installed on it, I was going to take it back to the shop but they are busy with business after the town had been flooded. Thanks again, regards Darrell

You are very welcome, Darrell!
The funny thing with IT support in general shops is that very few have any idea about Linux. Believe it or not, Linux support is an… advanced commodity! So, you’re already way ahead!
Congratulations on getting through it! :smiley:
