I'm trying to install a package from a PPA I've added. (Yes, I'm the author of the package if that helps in any way.)
Running a simple install command yields the following:
xxxxx@xxxxx:~$ sudo apt-get install opentracks [sudo] password for xxxxx: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages will be upgraded: opentracks 1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove Need to get 1,834kB of archives. After this operation, 184kB of additional disk space will be used. (Reading database ... 218827 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to replace opentracks 0.0.2-1 (using .../opentracks_0.0.5-1_amd64.deb) ... Unpacking replacement opentracks ... dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/opentracks_0.0.5-1_amd64.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite directory '/usr/share/pixmaps' in package mysql-query-browser 5.0r14+openSUSE-2.1 with nondirectory dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe) Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/opentracks_0.0.5-1_amd64.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I have emphasized the error... it seems like something is trying to overwrite
/usr/share/pixmaps for some strange reason.
What could cause such an error?
