Ubuntu system program problem detected[Solved]


I had been getting “System program problem detected” error messages with no further info after upgrading my ubuntu to 15.10 system program problem detected

It turns out that Ubuntu has an error reporting sytem called apport which tries to catch all program crashes in the background and report them to the developers.

Quick fixture: Remove old crash-reports

See all the old crash-reports in the crash-report directory

ls /var/crash

Remove all old crash-reports that might exist in the crash-report directory:

sudo rm /var/crash/*

The error messages will disappear on reboot.
