I am try to resolve some libboost problems. Eventually i decided it would be easier to remove it cleanly and start from scratch. But when i run
sudo apt-get --purge remove libboost* i get:
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: libcmis-0.3-3 : Depends: libboost-date-time1.53.0 but it is not going to be installed liborcus-0.6-0 : Depends: libboost-system1.53.0 but it is not going to be installed libreoffice-core : Depends: libboost-date-time1.53.0 but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
so i run
sudo apt-get -f install and get
Reading database ... 200480 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking libboost1.54-dev (from .../libboost1.54-dev_1.54.0-2ubuntu3_amd64.deb) ... dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libboost1.54-dev_1.54.0-2ubuntu3_amd64.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/quickbook', which is also in package libboost1.53-tools-dev 1.53.0-6+exp3ubuntu8 dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe) Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/libboost1.54-dev_1.54.0-2ubuntu3_amd64.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
so now im stuck in this loop and can't neither uninstall nor install
What shoud i do?
