This morning I checked my inbox and found a comment that seemed to indicate that the users problem was resolved. Upon attempting to read the entire comment from the post at https://askubuntu.com/questions/469844/upgrade-problem-dpkg-dependencies-netbase-4-47ubuntu1-all-deb I got a page not found and an indication that the question was removed by the author. What if anything should be done in a situation such as this?
What if anything should be done about an answered question that has been removed by the author?
The main point to remember: comments are 2nd class citizens on all stackexchange sites - they get easily deleted in several ways.– guntbertMay 23, 2014 at 17:20
1Thank you. Understood. I do however review my Inbox as often as possible and the inbox doesn't seem to allow reading the entire comment. Am I missing something?– Elder GeekMay 23, 2014 at 18:35
The comment suggests it wasn't answered. Here it is in full.
hey, thank you, I ran again
sudo apt-get install -f, then
sudo apt-get upgradeat this stage the upgrade failed because of
var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-generic....deb, I then ran
sudo apt-get autoremoveand then upgrading again, however I could not solve the problem and linux-image was not installed completely... Thanks ..
If you'd posted the answer as a comment and they deleted it, I'd open it back up and invite you to post as an answer...
But in this case they seem to have given up. There's a 7 minute window between commenting and deleting. Getting a -1 on your first ever post probably doesn't help things.
Thank you for clearing that up somewhat. All I got was "hey, thank you, I ran again sudo apt-get install -f, then sudo apt-get upgrade." I can see how getting a minus one on a first post could be distressing. the question remains. "What if anything should be done in a situation such as this?" May 21, 2014 at 14:12
