I installed accomplishments 3 months ago. Yesterday when i tried to update my Ubuntu there was an error in accomplishments-lens that stopped me from using apt-get update so I removed it from my system.

since ypu have the same problem (I thought I am the only one who has it). May be the accomplishments-lens package has been removed from the repository ?

Now if you really want to install accomplishment run the command again but without

Note: The accomplishments-lens package is optional, it provides integration with dash, but it is not needed to use the rest of accomplishments system. – Rafał Cieślak Oct 21 '12 at 11:12
