Linuxhelp _ General Discussion _ Apt-get borked

Posted by: BillinDetroit Feb 6 2009, 12:10 AM

I am a 'returning' Linux user. I -used- to have a few clues how to use it, but that was years ago (RH 5,2 or so).
Apparently I have downloaded and installed one package too many.

No matter which program I try to download / install, I get this error message:
Could not connect to localhost:4001 (127.0.0.1). - connect (111 Connection refused)

Trying to find it on my own is probably not going to happen:
bill@ubuntu:~$ sudo locate localhost:4001 / -c
249987

I've removed tor, awfful and privoxy (recent additions, ISTR). But the bugger is still with me.

Any clues? This stopped being funny about 3 days ago.

And the linux distribution / version you are running?

Ubuntu 8.10

What is awfful? My first guess is it could be a a privoxy problem. I am not familar with privoxy but its default port is 8118 not 4001 but that does not mean much.
Your web browser could be configured to use a proxy but since you uninstalled privoxy it is not working. Look at the settings and disable any proxy configurations.

awffull is a "new and improved" awstat ... a web statistics package for reading log files.

All proxy settings for the browser (Firefox 3.0.5) are dead. Still no joy. Isn't there some "nmap-ish" way to find out what might be using port 4001? From the error message, I am intuiting that something else is already using 4001 OR some firewall has it blocked ... thus making it unavailable for apt-get. Is apt-get even supposed to be using 4001?

I have another Linux laptop and it is having no problems with either the Synaptic Package manager or apt-get.

This is the commit log for the last successful downloads.
