Ubuntu: 12.04 HWES OEM won't upgrade, new HP455 laptop



Question:

Can some one please help, I have a new laptop a HP455 from ebuyer and its throwing up the following complains when trying to install the security and hardware support package in update manager:

installArchives() failed:   Extract templates from packages: 48%%  Extract templates from packages: 96%%  Extract templates from packages: 100%%    Extract templates from packages: 48%%  Extract templates from packages: 96%%  Extract templates from packages: 100%%    Extract templates from packages: 48%%  Extract templates from packages: 96%%  Extract templates from packages: 100%%    Extract templates from packages: 48%%  Extract templates from packages: 96%%  Extract templates from packages: 100%%  (Reading database ...

I am at a bit of a loss with this and wondering if someone could point me in the right direction.


Solution:1

Update 22/07/15

I have since solved this problem, if you look in the proprietary drivers list you will see a driver that is enabled that prevents loading of invalid fglrx drivers, if you deactivate this, then reboot and the Security and Hardware support package will install.
