A few weeks ago I installed a 32 bit
.deb file through the 'force architecture' command (on my 64bit notebook), however the procedure was unsuccessful and I used the
apt-get purgecommand to uninstall the app. It seems there are some leftovers of the app I uninstalled which has now broken system update. Synaptic recommended a
sudo apt-get install -fwhich I did in the terminal with this initial response:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required: libntfs10 Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. The following packages will be REMOVED: crossplatformui 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 1 not fully installed or removed. After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
I chose 'Y' then got this response:
(Reading database ... 187616 files and directories currently installed.) Removing crossplatformui ... ztemtvcdromd: no process found dpkg: error processing crossplatformui (--remove): subprocess installed post-removal script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: crossplatformui E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
It seems the app I installed
crossplatformuiis still on my system and has caused update manager to stop running with a partial upgrade warning. What do I do now?
