Failed updates

Sometimes Mintinstall fails to remove packages that are no longer required for installation.

This is due to powerless hardware or not to much ram. In particular cases we will have installed live-boot-initramfs-tools that it is read-only and prevent to use regular initramfs-tools and our updates, specially kernel.

To solve this issue open a terminal and type

sudo apt purge live-boot-initramfs-tools


Now you have to regenerate cache, with 'search new updates'. This will be fine, now.

Do not accept partial updates, it will be dangerous.
