Task cannot be monitored or controlled in Ubuntu Quantal

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have a small issue with my Ubuntu Quantal machine. I just updated and since then my Nvidia driver suddenly stopped on working. So I reinstalled it and it works again. However, my Firefox started crashing after some time of of running. When I run the Software Updater, I received another error which I don't know how to fix anymore:

Task cannot be monitored or controlled

The connection to the daemon was lost. Most likely the background daemon crashed.


It seems that the daemon died.

This might happen sometimes when Daemon becomes corrupted or somehow, misconfigured. It is possible to any application.

1. Download and install the latest release of Daemon from this page. Then install it.

2. Open a terminal and run this command to clean all the cache:
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get clean all
sudo rm -fr /var/cache/apt/*.bin

These commands always fixes many problems. If you want to skip typing these commands every time, just save them as a .sh file.
