[SOLVED] add / remove software and dual boot problem

Post by abutrab »

Hi , how are you doing all ?
i have mate desktop installed for more than a year now , after updating it last month and i have found that the other os is not recognized when booting , and a couple of days ago i realized that add / remove software is not starting.
is there a solution ? or i have to download and install a new version?
thanks all.
