Couple days ago I tried to install plymouth theme using super boot manager but it encountered some errors, now every time I try to install new app using apt-get I get this error. This is full log:

sudo apt-get install -f

Can't you remove it using sudo apt-get remove plymouth-theme-mib-ubuntu? Also what is the output of ls -la /lib/plymouth/themes/MIB-Ubuntu? –  Salem Aug 21 '13 at 13:57
I can't remove it, I get same error, output of your command is: "No such file or directory" –  Alen Aug 21 '13 at 15:29
