Removing the package from cache, and disabling Recommended Updates in Software Sources gives me an error saying I need to install this package.
I've tried to update several times, but it keeps hanging on unpacking the ubuntu-sso-client package. Which forces me to hard-reset to unlock the package manager.
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get upgrade --fix-broken
Wants me to reinstall said package, resulting in it hanging
Removing the package:
sudo rm -f /var/cache/apt/archives/ubuntu-sso-client_1.0.8-0ubuntu1_all.deb
Results in the same effect, it re-downloads then hangs
I can de-select Recommended Updates but I get error messages when I try to update again:
E: The package ubuntu-sso-client needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
Which won't let me continue
Finally re-enabling the source, I try to remove ubuntu-sso
sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-sso-client
It removes a bunch of other packages but complains about the package:
dpkg: error processing ubuntu-sso-client (--remove): Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal.
Reinstalling ubuntu-sso-client hangs :(
I'm at my wits end, any ideas? I would be nice to install all the other updates but this one is preventing it.
