I tried to
dpkg -i --force-architecture google-earth-stable_i386.deb and it failed.
But now when I try to install the amd64.deb it fails saying
dpkg: error processing google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb (--install): google-earth-stable: 18.104.22.16813-r0 (Multi-Arch: no) is not co-installable with google-earth-stable:i386 22.214.171.12413-r0 (Multi-Arch: no) which is currently installed Errors were encountered while processing: google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb
somehow it thinks the i386 version is installed. No google-earth files or directories even exist.
sudo dpkg --configure -a
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of google-earth-stable:i386: google-earth-stable:i386 depends on lsb-core (>= 3.2). dpkg: error processing google-earth-stable:i386 (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Errors were encountered while processing: google-earth-stable:i386
so it does exist in some capacity.
sudo apt-get -f install
does nothing out of the ordinary:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 10 not upgraded.
The weird thing is that synaptic doesn't show any google earth package available let alone installed, nothing under the broken filter either.
I have also tried
sudo apt-get autoremove and
sudo apt-get autoclean
So, my question: How can I get rid of this issue?
