After an update, I get a red warning icon in the system tray, warning about an
error: broken count >0
Opening Update manager, I see that the broken package is
linux-headers-2.6.32-38 (new install)
Trying to use the update manager, I get a further error message:
You have 1 broken package on your system! Use the "Broken" filter to locate it.
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-headers-2.6.32-38_2.6.32-38.83_all.deb: unable to create `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-38/arch/arm/mach-netx/include/mach/vmalloc.h.dpkg-new' (while processing `./usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-38/arch/arm/mach-netx/include/mach/vmalloc.h')
apt-get clean as suggested in another question on this site, and tried reinstalling the package in Synaptic.
One option I have not tried is simply to restart, but I don't dare to in case I can't reboot back into Ubuntu.
I have also tried
apt-get install --fix-broken and I get the following:
