Q: Bash pass commands to different function?

user427936I'm trying to append and prepend commands to various functions. For example: #!/bin/bash wrapper () { echo "start of foo" echo "$1" echo "end of foo" } foo () { wrapper "$(echo 1; echo 2)" } foo The output is great, as desired: $ bash /tmp/script.sh start of foo 1 2 end o...

hello. i am not able to upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 from the command line
when i type doupgrade -c I get a no new release available
i read that a new LTS has been released.
6:33 AM
@gansub what command did you use exactly?
6:46 AM
@jokerdino sudo do-release-upgrade -c
should i do the -d option because that is developmental right ?
6:58 AM
ok i am running it with the -d option
I recall they are yet to enable the upgrade option.
no I read in the news it is released
It is released, you are right.
However, the upgrade path is not yet enabled.
ok so is there any problem with using the -d option ?
it is stable right ?
I think it's alright
7:03 AM
and when the upgrade path is enabled what do i need to do ?
just do updates and upgrades and dist-upgrades?
If you have already upgraded to 20.04, then there is nothing you have to do when the upgrade path is enabled.
Upgrade path is when the majority of the common users will be prompted to upgrade to the new release.
you can preemptively upgrade using the -d switch
upgrading is happening right now as we chat
after i upgrade do i need to recompile all my C and C++ code?
specifically my libraries
I am not aware of such things happening.
plus numpy and scipy ?
I am not friends with those people.
7:09 AM
when i upgraded from 16.04 to 18.04 i had to recompile all my code
It's only a problem if they are python2 libraries.
as 20.04 has dropped support for python2
no they are all python 3 libraries
then, those should be alright
how about qt ? would i have to recompile that?

Q: Feature request: Two step verification

technastic_tcSecuring our digital accounts is a very important thing to do to be safe in the Internet. Having a strong password is just the start in my opinion. Two-step verification is a very important tool to keep our accounts safe. Many companies provide two-step verification feature to its users like Goog...

@gansub That package isn't installed in my installation. I assume you have some package of which libglade2.0-cil is the dependency. What is the exact error mnessage you got?
I am getting a whole bunch of errors
Is it possible to salvage this installation
12:58 PM
It depends on the error message. I'd encourage you to ask a new question on Ask Ubuntu with all details and error messages.

Q: Should I merge the comments with my answer to make a more useful answer?

Kevin BowenI have a mildly popular answer that has generated a number of (IMHO) helpful comments over the years. I am asking the community if you think that the answer might be cleaner/more helpful if I took the comments and added them to the answer and have the comments removed? This might reduce some of t...
