I am unable to install or remove a package on my Ubuntu 10.04 due to the following error.
$ sudo apt-get autoremove Password: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

What should I do to resolve this error?
I have tried
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq nscd
but it did not work.
