I have been trying to fix my Kubuntu 14.04 installation for the past two days now. I have found that there is generally very little self-contained help/guides/tutorials available. While there is an abundance of posts about various methods for fixing installations, none of them walk you through the entire process of fixing the installation.
I understand that there is simply too many different variables that could go wrong to cover every single possible error, but (I am assuming) new Linux users are more prone to mucking up their system. I have found that assembling all the available information about mounting discs, using
chroot, etc. is simply too overwhelming and very frustrating.
As a counterexample: there are dozens of guides/tutorials available for installing a Linux systems.
So, to recap, why are there hardly any self-contained guides for repairing Ubuntu/Linux installations?
