Hello Dane,

Currently the running vm has (apt-get upgrade) latest packages upgraded. 
This upgrades is done on the 'base'  of virtual machine. In click2try vm , 
if something is applied on  'base' then that is present for running 
instance of vm.  You might see some 'numbers of pakage' still needs to be 
upgraded . Its because 'app' layer also has apt-get info (database) just 
like  'base' which misguides user. This misguiding information is something 
which we still need to work on and will be fixed soon.

If you have observed something different or specific location then please 
share your thoughts. we will be happy to provide you more details. 

Now about error ,

"dpkg: error processing gnome-power-manager (--remove):
failed to delete `/etc.dpkg-tmp': read-only file system". 

Its because at present , if 'user' require to install any package using 
dpkg (or apt-get) , we require to run the vm in different mode (which is 
maintence mode where 'app' or base has write permission) rather then the 
one which its running for user mode.

Does above information provides all information as expected ?

Please reply in case you have more queries.

Arun Sharma

So the new line was added to the 'sources.list' but 'apt-get update' 
was not run on this new machine. Why not?

I tried to do it myself within the running VM but after all packages 
are downloaded (took about 20 minutes) dpkg bails with this error:

'dpkg: error processing gnome-power-manager (--remove):
failed to delete `/etc.dpkg-tmp': read-only file system

Do you know why this is happening?
