Updating packages in ubuntu

If your system is 64 bit, enable 32 bit architecture (if you haven't already): To install Wine on an Ubuntu machine without internet access, you must have access to a second Ubuntu machine (or VM) with an internet connection to download the Wine package and its dependencies.

The procedure goes like this: On the machine with internet, add the Wine HQ PPA, then cache just the necessary packages without actually extracting them: The same instructions can also be used for an offline installation of the `winehq-staging` packages.

Ubuntu's implementation of Multiarch is still incomplete, so for now you can't simply install 32-bit and 64-bit libraries alongside each other.

If you're on a 64-bit system, you'll have to create an isolated environment for installing and building with 32-bit dependencies.

I am running Ubuntu 7.10 and R-2.6.0, and I am having trouble updating packages. For example, here is the output of an attempt to update the Hmisc package. ** libs gfortran -fpic -g -O2 -c cidxcn.f -o cidxcn.o gfortran -fpic -g -O2 -c cidxcp.f -o cidxcp.o gfortran -fpic -g -O2 -c hoeffd.f -o hoeffd.o gfortran -fpic -g -O2 -c jacklins.f -o jacklins.o gfortran -fpic -g -O2 -c largrec.f -o largrec.o gcc -std=gnu99 -I/usr/share/R/include -I/usr/share/R/include -fpic -g -O2 -c ranksort.c -o ranksort.o gfortran -fpic -g -O2 -c rcorr.f -o rcorr.o gfortran -fpic -g -O2 -c wclosest.f -o wclosest.o gcc -std=gnu99 -shared -o cidxcn.o cidxcp.o hoeffd.o jacklins.o largrec.o ranksort.o rcorr.o wclosest.o -lgfortran -lm -lgcc_s -L/usr/lib/R/lib -l R /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgfortran collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [Hmisc.so] Error 1 ERROR: compilation failed for package 'Hmisc' ** Removing '/usr/local/lib/R/site-library/Hmisc' ** Restoring previous '/usr/local/lib/R/site-library/Hmisc' The downloaded packages are in /tmp/Rtmpka H0Db/downloaded_packages Warning message: In install.packages(update[instlib == l, "Package"], l, contriburl = contriburl, : installation of package 'Hmisc' had non-zero exit status I tried searching on the error message /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgfortran along with R and Ubuntu and was not able to find anything that was helpful to me.

I have successfully updated packages on Ubuntu 6.10 and 7.04.
