Many people who use a Linux Operating System believe that it is by definition a secure system and that they are in no danger. I was once told that Linux is like a room with all the doors and windows closed and locked. I have also been told that the only truly secure computer is one that is disconnected from the Internet, turned off, unplugged and battery removed (for laptops), and placed back in its box on the top shelf of the hall closet. The truth is probably some where in between.

Let's start, uname -a ... do NOT remove this image
Let's do a sudo apt-get update ... make sure it is clean
If, for some reason, you get errors, try sudo apt-get -f install (fix broken)
Let's get a list of all the images, dpkg -l | grep linux-image
