    hello and welcome!

    The dir /usr/src/bin is not likely a proper directory.

    To install binaries (that is, programs), you should use the package manager that comes with your distro (apt-get for Ubuntu, yum for Fedora, etc.). They will properly install the binaries to the proper place on your system.

    You can install packages from source if you must, but you usually invoke something like:
    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    Where "make install" copies the made binaries to a pre-defined location (usually /usr/local/bin) for you.

    I think you had better be specific about what you are trying to install. If you are trying to get your system back into some previous good state, I don't think I can help you.

    But if you want to install a specific package, then please tell us:
    * the name and version of the package you want to install
    * your Linux distro and version
    * exactly the commands you are trying
    * any command output/errors you are getting

    and i am using apt-get to install programs
    and when i apt-get update it will install the updates becaseu of the previous errors
    I don't know what you mean by previous errors. Again, provide specific detail about what you've tried and what you are getting if you want good help from us.
