    git commit -m "add test.txt": fatal: Unable to create 'test/.git/indexlock': Permissions denied

    +1 for not going down the GUI-y route - command line git is the way to go and there are lots of great resources out there incl. this great Software Carpentry one: https://swcarpentry.github.io/git-novice/

    git commit -m "add test.txt": fatal: Unable to create 'test/.git/indexlock': Permissions denied

    Have you remembered to stage your changes before trying to commit them? So, something like: git add test.txt git commit -m "<insert commit message here>" then git push if you're trying to push to somewhere like GitHub or GitLab.

    [SOLVED] corrupt install of kernel 5.11

    Fantastic! You're right - the issue was with `35_fwupd` that gets created after the update - turned out there was a bug in it which the developers have now fixed: https://github.com/fwupd/fwupd/commit/92c8f0e727aafec6f2ba9df2f236ba6a19b66a30

    [SOLVED] corrupt install of kernel 5.11

    Thanks - I don't seem to have `35_fwupd` in etc/grub.d before updating (does it appear after the update perhaps)? This is what I do have in `grub.d` before the update: [email protected]:/etc/grub.d$ ls 00_header 10_linux_zfs 30_os-prober 41_custom 05_debian_theme 20_linux_xen...

    [SOLVED] corrupt install of kernel 5.11

    Yes - booted into 5.8.x and restored - and it's all fine (with all traces of 5.11 now gone). Not sure whether I had a corrupt 5.11.x or whether it was something else. I think I'll stick with 5.8 for the time being. Thanks again.

    [SOLVED] corrupt install of kernel 5.11

    Thanks - all sorted via Timeshift and life is good again. First time I've used it to restore a system - took just a few mins - impressive bit of software. Many thanks for your help - I very much appreciate it :cool:

    [SOLVED] corrupt install of kernel 5.11

    Thanks - when I run `sudo apt --fix-broken install` it doesn't actually complete (see below) and gives me a `too many errors` error. I'm wondering if maybe I should just grab my Timeshift backup... $ sudo apt --fix-broken install Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree...

    [SOLVED] corrupt install of kernel 5.11

    Thanks for your speedy response - when I try `sudo apt install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-20.04` I end up back with the unmet dependencies problem (see below). Hmm. Am I running the wrong command? It's not a server installation I want to do but I don't see the desktop command - only...

    [SOLVED] corrupt install of kernel 5.11

    Greetings - first time poster so I hope I'm asking my question with sufficient detail. I'm running 20.04 on a Starlabs StarLite laptop. I was running some updates the other day - that look as if they include the 5.11.0-27 kernel and something went wrong. I can't boot into that kernel, although I...
