I am using Lubuntu 17.04, and when using Synaptic, I get the "...unsandboxed..." message after a completed download. One message per download. (Why only one? The package I just downloaded for testing purposes pulled in six or eight other packages, but only the last was shown in the message.)

The command is lowercase “chown”, without the “(1)”. The general syntax would be “chown ”. You'll normally need superuser privileges to change owners on system files and directories, activated by adding the command “sudo” before the “chown” (separated by a space). The “(1)” refers to which
