You have sent your message to the GNU Coreutils mailing list.  The GNU
Coreutils are the basic file, shell and text manipulation utilities of
the GNU Operating System.  You can learn more about GNU Coreutils here:


The GNU Coreutils are part of the GNU Operating System.  You can learn

You are talking about Ubuntu however we don't really have any direct
connection to Ubuntu.  This is not an Ubuntu support forum.
Effectively you have taken your boat to a motorcycle shop.  It would
be helpful if you say why you decided to ask for help here.  You can
learn more about Ubuntu here:


For Ubuntu support I suggest the resources here:

It appears to me from your description that by doing a "full disk
wipe" the you have removed Ubuntu from your hard drive.  This appears
to be what you intended to do and it reads to me that you have done
it.  Further debugging would require more information.  This means
that now that you have no operating system that you would need to
install one before your computer will boot.

Making threats such as this is not a good way to ask for help for free
software.  Put yourself in the position of a helper who is
volunteering time and resources to help other people by answering
questions and developing software.  What would you in that position of
a volunteer trying to help others think and do about someone who opens
the discussion with threats?  Keeping a positive tone usually obtains
better results.  As the old saying goes, "You get more flies with
honey than with vinegar."
