my 16.04 has stopped updating. I’ve added an official Libreoffce Writer dictionary(dict-en-20170101.oxt). A screenshot of the partial update error I’ve made but can’t attach here
Do it in terminal and post the text output.
sudo apt update
Have you tried going to the Software Boutique > Fixes and running the Configure Interrupted Packages and Resolve Broken Packages? That might help. You could also run the following commands in the command line and see what happens:
sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt --fix-broken install sudo apt-get -f install
Follow the terminal prompts if necessary.
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
You could also run this command to clean up the system:
sudo apt autoclean && sudo apt autoremove
As @anon42388993 mentioned, please copy and post the text output of the error messages you might be getting (if you run the terminal commands, select the text and press
CTRL + Shift + c to copy it).
If none of the above suggestions work, I recommend you follow wolfman’s update guide, as it is very comprehensive. I do that update every time I install Ubuntu on a machine.
I hope this helps.
