Yesterday, I moved my desktop computer around, no big deal, huh? Except after I plugged everything back in, my dual-boot wasn’t working.
• Windows clock was messed up
• Ubuntu wouldn’t boot
• Running dpkg didn’t work
On Windows I got “An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with…”, and Ubuntu said something along the lines of: “last write time is in the future. (by less than a day, probably due to the hardware clock being incorrectly set). FIXED.” then it stalled.
I tried using,
– “sudo apt-get install -f”
– “sudo apt-get install ntp”
– Reinstalled ntp
– Editing the /etc/default/rcS file
– Restarting the Windows Time Service
– Making windows not use UTC
And a bunch of other unsuccessful actions.
I even tried reinstalling, but
unfortunately, it didn’t work because it said I had no internet.
The real problem? An external USB memory device wasn’t plugged in properly.
It all works magnificently now.
