It works for me! I was trying to install the wireless driver when this error came. Had to delete the files and also the lock files. sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock cd /var/lib/dpkg/updates sudo rm * sudo apt-get update and then you can run your apt-get install to whatever package you want to install

You are doing the right thing. You need to find out why the installation process gets stuck. Check user rights, disk space, etc. If it doesn't try running sudo apt-get install -f (to fix broken packages) and then try running sudo dpkg --configure -a again.

that is because both you are running it without sudo, and the previous package operation failed and has thus not released its hold on the installation directory. Reboot and run "sudo apt-get -f install"

If you wish to do a comparison between the two, and have a movable list you could do: dpkg --get-selections>new.txt This will take your output and send it to a text file ('new.txt'). From there you can use grep to search through. For example: grep '^linux*' new.txt Or if you just need the packages quick combine the two dpkg --get-selections|grep ...

The /var/lib/dpkg/lock is actually a file. If you think it is important, just rename it don't remove it. sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-backup

It means that software center or another terminal is still running a package operation, force removing it is not really recommended as it can cause corruption, but try closing those and if that doesn't do the trick then reboot and just open a terminal window and nothing else to install/do a package operation

sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock should do the trick. You can use ps afx|grep dpkg to check if there is still a process runnning at the same time. sudo killall dpkg will stop all running dpkg processes. If you need to cancel the dropbox installation, try sudo dpkg --force-remove-reinstreq --remove nautilus-dropbox

There is nothing wrong with your Ubuntu. The Oracle server is replying 403 Forbidden. The installer is attempting to download from Oracle's servers, which block you because you are in Iran which is subject to U.S. export restrictions.

Muru's tip about DKMS put me on the right track. Seeing the zfs-dkms package I looked at /var/lib/dpkg/info/zfs-dkms.list which names /usr/src/zfs-0.6.2/dkms.conf. I didn't have that file, nor any of /usr/src/zfs-0.6.2. Aha! I installed zfs to import an existing zpool and mount filesystems from a FreeBSD system, including a /usr/src. So when I built ...

Because, your package is installed in release/environment that it will not able to work in, That means your packages control dependencies missing something.

Within a Debian package, there's no way to say "Allow installations on 14.04 only". That has to happen at the apt repository level (which I'll get to shortly later). The semi-exception to this is that because Trusty is newer than Precise, Trusty will have some library packages renamed (which, as long as the user's not using a PPA that provides these ...

You can safely run what the apt-get output says: sudo dpkg --configure -a It should solve your problem. This command configures all packages that has been unpacked but not configured yet. See: man dpkg for more details.

First, you can't use at the same time Synaptic and package-related commands (such as apt-get or dpkg). Normally, a simple sudo apt-get update should generate a new pkgcache.bin, since you seem to have deleted it as well. Can't test it right now, however...

I have installed the kubuntu-desktop package on a cloud9 instance and recived the same error. My simple fix is because there is no file /etc/init.d/modemmanager Simply touch /etc/init.d/modemmanager

There are a bunch of files that dpkg interprets that files should be directories and directories that appears to be files. I would recommend reinstalling those package to assure that the file database is correctly set: sudo apt-get --reinstall install linux-headers-3.11.0-12-generic linux-headers-3.11.0-13-generic linux-image-3.11.0-13-generic ...

Packages (like postfix) may install or generate configuration files (files that usually go in the /etc folder). During this process, there may be options that can be changed by the user. On installation, you are usually asked to set these options. In the case of postfix, it involves what type of server you're running, the hostname, and allowed IP addresses ...

Copy .deb packages from cache to ubuntu's cache (/var/cache/apt/archives). Use dpkg-repack to make .deb from installed data. Either copy it to cache or make a package cd using aptoncd and add that to software sources.

APT refers to these packages as "obsolete". Evidently there is no direct way to list these, but you could do: aptitude search '~o' Or alternatively: apt-show-versions | grep 'No available version' Source: How do I get a list of obsolete packages? If you want a GUI tool you can do this with Synaptic by using the built-in "local or obsolete" filter.

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq --dry-run libgfortran3:amd64 That's just a dry-run. I'm not sure what removing libgfortran3 will take with it but run that and see. Assuming it's not going to gobble the whole system, run it again without the --dry-run and then you can sudo apt-get install ... the packages you need back.

If you want to fix this through GUI, you can use synaptic. Synaptic is an excellent package management tool that used to be included in older versions of ubuntu. To install it: sudo apt-get install synaptic click on fix broken packages.

Why are you installing Debian packages?! Don't do that!

This is how I fixed the issue myself: sudo apt-get remove xserver-common-lts-raring If needed enter your password. When asked to remove type yes. That should remove the file, and then you should have no more issues. That worked the first time I tried it.

When you remove that package it's looking for a process called ztemtvcdromd as part of the postrm scripts, and since it doesn't find it it fails. This is a bug of the maintainer of the package which should have used || exit 0 so the process never returns different code of 0. To fix this you need to edit the /var/lib/dpkg/info/crossplatformui.postrm and ...
