Re: Uninstalled package asks for updates in update manager



Tried some recommended commands. Please let me know if there's anything
you see that could be causing my problem and if I can safely delete it.

giga1@giga1:~$ locate apache
giga1@giga1:~$ locate libapache
giga1@giga1:~$ dpkg -l apache\* libapache\* |grep ^ii

Apache comes in many packages.  Are you sure you uninstalled all of
I suspect some remain installed on your system and so are being updated.

What does

  dpkg -l apache\* libapache\* |grep ^ii

output?  This should be a list of packages starting with the text
"apache" or "libapache" that are still installed on your machine.  If
appropriate, you can then sudo apt-get purge any such packages that you
do not want on your machine any longer.

Not in your home directory, but in the package database :)

If you cannot recreate it, the chances anyone else will be able to help
you with it are very low.

I'll leave this one for others to answer.  Incidentally, it is usually
easier for those helping you if you report one issue per email or per
bug report :)
