Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I was attempting an "apt-get upgrade" through terminal. It came back with this error message:

"Errors were encountered while processing: gnome-elf-thumbnailer"

Now with looking at the line of command I find this:

"Warning: /usr/share/gconf/schemas/elf-exe-thumbnailer.schemas could not be found."

Needless to say my ubuntu is broken and needs repair for a complete upgrade or update to work.

I tried googling for an answer but I just am not typing the right question because I am not finding anything. Can someone help. I would like to get this fixed.
