I had this error which made it impossible for me to do anything:
I tried to change the “
fstab” file, but I couldn’t, because I had this error.
sudo didn’t work, because I had this error.
I couldn’t use “
make” to compile code I’m writing.
I tried booting in recovery mode, and chosing “drop root” .. But I had this error.
When you turn your computer on, in the “
grub” menu .. Chose “Previous Linux versions”.. Then chose the oldest one in recovery mode…
So for example, you’d find something like this:
Release 3.0.0-16 recovery mode
Release 3.0.0-12 recovery mode.
Chose the last one, Release 3.0.0-12 recovery mode
Then chose “Drop root” .. Then use the following command:
And chose yes to everything.
After it’s done, reboot normally. Perform an update:
sudo apt-get update
Perform an upgrade:
sudo apt-get upgrade
By the way, Ubuntu 12.04 has just came out a couple of days ago. It’s an LTS version (Long Term Support).
