Grails with intelliJ IDEA on Ubuntu

So, I struggled for a while to get idea to create a grails project - when tryin to create my first project, I've been told I have no grails sdk configured yet, but could add a new one. But the "ok" button on the file selector for the grails SDK location kept being gray and could not be pressed when I was on /usr/share/grails - the location where the debian package of grails places the whole software into.

Solved ntp problems on Ubuntu upgrade

I just wanted to make an upgrade "on the run" to get latest security patches and fixes onto my laptop.

The ntp package wasn't installable, hanging on errors like this:

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
A package failed to install.
