Some programs request and doubts

Did you Activate the abiword module? Once the USM module is created you have to Activate it to use it.

A free basic compiler. Interesting.

CHROME and FIREFOX latest versions

I always use the ESR version so I manually download it and put it in the /tmp folder before starting the update-firefox tool. That approach should work for you too. I've never been a fan of the latest beta option.

Porteus Updater - ERROR An internet connection is required

I installed Porteus on a fairly large pendrive. How big a pendrive, what format, how did you install Porteus to it? :%) When you try the Porteus update function do you get something like this? sh /opt/porteus-scripts/update-porteus sh-4.4# sh /opt/porteus-scripts/update-porteus Starting checks ... ...

Porteus Updater - ERROR An internet connection is required

Yes, and apparently it's been around for awhile. fastest-mirror test
