I have been installing various applications on my Ubuntu 10.10 laptop and I've been noticing a common theme. There is always an error in the terminal at the end of the install and it is as follows:

Removing ttf-droid ...
/etc/defoma/hints/ttf-droid.hints: Unable to open, or empty.
dpkg: error processing ttf-droid (--remove):
 subprocess installed pre-removal script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
