Hello, I have some issues with my Librem 14 that I recently updated (I think). I say “I think” since I do not know if I’ve done it properly: I typed
sudo apt update but nothing really happened but then I typed
sudo apt upgrade and I belive that it was then that my system updated. I had trouble updating: when I went to the “Software” app, and went to “updates” and tried downloading them I got an error; I read that you could update your system with the command lines mentioned above. After I typed
sudo apt upgrade and waited for everything to fall into place I saw that the background went black and that my VPN stoped working. I restarted the computer but I had some trouble getting it to boot properly, sicne when I started it I would get a red error message (since I started it with the security key plugged in) telling me that a file (I have a vague memory of the file having the word “hub” or “github” in it) had been tampered with. After fiddling around with the menu I think I got the system to run properly. Yet when I started it, the load after I unlock/decrypt the hard drive is way longer than what it used to be: It used to be that I entered the password, saw the little PureOS animation and a few seconds after I would be able to log in. Also, the log in time is equally as bad. After I enter my password, it takes about the same time to access my desktop as it took to access the login menu; much longer than what it used to be. Also, now my internet doesn’t work anymore. I use ethernet, and I do not have a wifi card, yet it doesn’t work. The computer says that I’m connected but I can’t access it. I tried
ping puri.sm and
ping google.com but the responce I got was
ping: google.com: Name or service not known which is the same message I get when I do the same command without an ethernet connection. And the same issue is present when I try to connect to my VPN or TOR: it doesn’t.
I am new to Linux and PureOS so I a not that fammiliar with all the commands needed. But I’m sure that what happened, happened because I updated my computer. I am not sure if there’s any troubleshooting I could do to fix this… still…
Has this issue happened to anybody else? Because I’d like to think that it happened after I updated my system and that i just need to wait for a new update… but how would i do that if I do not have internet access?
[edit:It’s probably not my ethernet cable since it worked well with a diffrent device, perhaps it’s the port?]
