dpkg -V or dpkg --verify checks the integrity of packages(s) by comparing the metadata stored in it's database and the file paths. You can select the output format using --verify-format option but it currently only supports rpm format. In rpm format only the paths that failed any check are shown. Take an example of failed check: ??5?????? c /etc/lightdm/...

From the dpkg manpage: -V, --verify [package-name...] Verifies the integrity of package-name or all packages if omitted, by comparing information from the files installed by a package with the files metadata information stored in the dpkg database (since dpkg 1.17.2). The origin of the files metadata ...

I only know two ways to do this one is : sudo apt-get install -f and the other is to download everything manually via a browser and putting packages inside of /var/cache/apt/archives (the folder where downloaded packages reside) and call the install again. You can check the integrity of packages just in case corruption is the reason of dependency been ...

You have libcurl3-gnutls 7.43.0-1ubuntu2.1 from wily-updates installed but your available libcurl4-gnutls-dev is the version at wily's release, ie. 7.43.0-1ubuntu2. So make sure in your sources that wily-security & wily-updates are enabled. If not then enable, update sources & all will be well. If they are already enabled then find a better mirror....

You want the ones that have 'generic' NOT 'low latency' in the name and the ones that have 'amd64' NOT 'arm64' AND the one that ends with 'all'. That should give you 3 in total: linux-headers-4.7.0-040700rc6-generic_4.7.0-040700rc6.201607040332_amd64.deb linux-headers-4.7.0-040700rc6_4.7.0-040700rc6.201607040332_all.deb linux-image-4.7.0-040700rc6-...

This is very old, but I had a similar problem upgrading to 16.04, so I figured I'd post my solution here in case anyone else suffers from this. The problem is that the delllctservice and delllctservicecontent scripts are missing LSB headers, which tell the system in what order to start them. Somehow during the upgrade this messes up the boot order, which ...

There are two entries on line 38 of your /etc/default/grub.cfg that end up being merged into one variable: GRUB_FONT="/boot/grub/unicode.pf2"GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=None You need to add a line break after the 2nd quotation mark (") before GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX, or, since the resulting entry would be an exact duplicate of line 39, you can just delete that ...

It says "7 not fully installed or removed". sudo apt -f install should do the trick.

You need to add the following entry in /etc/apt/sources.list or a new file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/: deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org trusty main deb-src http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org trusty main Then add the gpg key used to sign the packages by running the following commands at your command prompt: gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg....

Ok, so I think I solved the problem. I found out that with apt-cache showpkg python I can view all the different python versions available. I picked the latest one and installed it using: sudo apt-get install python=2.7.5-5ubuntu3 It gave me a warning it couldn't delete some "old directories": dpkg: warning: unable to delete old directory '/usr/local/...

Here you go: No difference between the contents, only that 10periodic will be parsed earlier than 20auto-upgrades due to the ascending parsing behavior of apt. If same directive is mentioned in two different files (or more), the the earlier one(s) will be overridden by the last one. No. APT::Periodic::AutocleanInterval takes an integer value and sets the ...

I had this same problem. Here's how I fixed it: First, I executed this shell command in order to add [arch=amd64] back into the Chrome Remote Desktop repository file: sudo sed -i -e 's/deb http/deb [arch=amd64] http/' "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/chrome-remote-desktop.list" Then I did the same to the Chrome Remote Desktop cron file: sudo sed -i -e 's/deb ...
