I've gotten into a real bind here, I'm not exactly certain when this happened but I've been really perplexed on how to fix this issue. At the moment I can't get apt-get to work at all. As in, there is absolutely no response at all after entering any apt-get command, just a new command line. When I try to run the software center, I get a segmentation fault.
sudo dpkg --configure -a
also does not give anything at all, only a new command line.
I've gone down these routes :
and have removed both
Everything else I've found uses apt-get in some way. I had not considered making a backup of the actual Ubuntu filesystem before, just my own materials, but I'll certainly be doing so in the future.
I'd like to not have to reinstall, are there any solutions?
