packagekit daemon crash

charlie
man, i've been having issues like crazy with this 'packagekit daemon' crash. at first, i thought it was my laptop, perhaps, so i used the same usb thumbdrive with the same copy of 18.04.1 on a different laptop and it still had the same crash so i'm thinking it's the actual iso itself, maybe. i downloaded a fresh copy from kubuntu.org and i noticed it was a bit larger than before, going from 1.7 GB to 1.8 GB, so perhaps that copy'll do better? hell, i even downloaded and attempted to install the daily live iso of 18.10 and i got the SAME crash. the 'packagekit daemon' doesn't like me for some reason and i'm in no mood to try to 'excorcise' it. sorry, bad joke using 'daemon.' daemon (demon). just trying to keep it light hearted. but my goodness, what's up with this packagekit? it seems that when that crash happens, my computer doesn't seem to be updated when it crashes.

i've filed a bug for it, well, just marked it as affecting me as well. i'm hoping to get this thing squashed soon because i want my computer updated and running good.

Re: packagekit daemon crash

i'm replying to my own post here.

just installed 16.04 and no issues with the packagekit daemon, so far. about to install latte dock via ppa. must be something with 18.04 only. 

also, i just remembered that in 18.04, i was getting an error called 'cannot obtain lock.' i was trying to download and install the tor browser and i think something as well and i never got to file a bug report for that. but, at least i'm up and running again, albeit taking a step 'back' to 16.04, which is not a problem. i'm going to wait until 16.04 hits EOL before upgrading to 18.04 to give the development team time to correct the bugs.
