I got my PBP, logged in, connected to my gateway, updated the Debian + Mate system with the mrfixit icon. Firefox crashes when I do anything with it. Chrome either crashes or loads so slowly as to be useless. This is very disappointing. I've used linux on many laptops designed for Windows and Linux alway works more or less well. Why am I having this probelm? Is anyone else seeing this? Otherwise the wifi works okay if slow.

I seem to have misplaced the handy icon for the update script. 
I'm probably just being tired and dense, but is there another/better way to trigger system updates?
Also, will i break anything if i let apt-get update the 80 or so items it's itchy to update?

The icon is a shortcut to the script:

Code:
sudo ./usr/bin/mrfixit_update.sh

So 2 days more for a new batch of pre-order?
I have been monitoring this since a friend mentioned the PBP to me. Feels like the perfect Linux Utility machine

You will not break anything. In fact, you should regularly update Debian for security reasons.

That icon is mostly updating the kernel, uboot and device tree. You should update the actual Debian system from time to time via

# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

Unfortunately, those commands aren't working. 
I get this:
W: chmod 0700 of directory /var/lib/apt/lists/partial failed - SetupAPTPartialDirectory (1: Operation not permitted)
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock directory /var/lib/apt/lists/
W: Problem unlinking the file /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin - RemoveCaches (13: Permission denied)
W: Problem unlinking the file /var/cache/apt/srcpkgcache.bin - RemoveCaches (13: Permission denied)

Any ideas? Thanks! :-)
