I am attempting to upgrade to the most recent Ubuntu OS but i am being stopped with warning that mfc6490cwlpr:i386 is in a very bad inconsistent state. the warning suggests that I should reinstall before I remove this pkg. The following is my attempt to do so.
dpkg: warning: overriding problem because --force enabled: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal. (Reading database ... 284218 files and directories currently installed.)

Needless to say... I have had no luck. Can anyone guide me through this?
