This question already has an answer here:
I have no idea what the problem is, but I keep trying to install nodejs-legacy by running sudo apt-get install, but it keeps failing. Here's all of the output when I try to do the command.
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: ax25-node libax25 libc-ares2 libv8-3.14.5 openbsd-inetd Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. The following NEW packages will be installed: nodejs-legacy 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded. 1 not fully installed or removed. Need to get 0 B/15.4 kB of archives. After this operation, 119 kB of additional disk space will be used. (Reading database ... 198807 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking nodejs-legacy (from .../nodejs-legacy_0.10.15~dfsg1-4_all.deb) ... dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/nodejs-legacy_0.10.15~dfsg1-4_all.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/usr/share/man/man1/node.1.gz', which is also in package nodejs 0.10.24-1chl1~saucy1 Processing triggers for man-db ... Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/nodejs-legacy_0.10.15~dfsg1-4_all.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
So I found the answer to my question in another thread. I had to use
sudo dpkg -r nodejs-legacy and
sudo apt-get -f install.
So, credit for where credit is due, here is the link the answer that explained to me what I had to do.
