While upgrading to Version 11.10 of Ubuntu, I noticed that the (aptitude) package
libdjvulibre21 failed installation. After instllation, I was prompted that one package had failed installation, and that I execute the Package Manager, or run
apt-get to rectify this problem. Running
apt-get still did not resolve the problem. Instead, it produced the following log file.

No matter how many times I execute
apt-get I receive the same error messages. Judging by this log file. it would appear that the
libdjvulibre21_3.5.24-8_i386.deb package that was downloaded during the installation is broken. Not sure how I can force a re-download using
As an aside, this problem wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that I was trying to install OpenOffice under Ubuntu Version 11.04? In this case, even though the installation was successful, the LibreOffice icons were still being displayed on the side-bar, and the OpenOffice package was nowhere to be found on my system.
