During my last run of the update manager, I got an error about a broken package. I went into Synaptic and found that it was the Cardapio menu replacement. I completely removed all packages relating to it, then tried to reinstall. I got this error:
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/cardapio-gnomepanel_0.9.179-ubuntu1-maverick1_i386.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/cardapio-gnome-panel-applet', which is also in package cardapio 0.9.180-ubuntu1-maverick1
I tried following those instructions, first using the force-overwrite flag, and when that didn't work, the force-all flag. force-all seemed to work, but when I tried running update, I'm still getting errors. Here's the entire terminal session; can anyone help me out?
