The removal is failing because the pre-removal script can't be executed with success due to the failure of the cd command (such directory doesn't exist anymore); comment this line in /var/lib/dpkg/info/spotify-client.prerm by putting a # at the start: cd /opt/spotify/spotify-client && ./unregister.sh so that it becomes like this one: # cd ...

apt-get wants to upgrade some packages at the same time as you want to remove libreoffice-draw. Of course this requires downloading new packages: 8 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 4 to remove and 33 not upgraded. Need to get 27.9 MB/64.3 MB of archives. At the same time, the operation frees some space overall: After this operation, 15.6 MB disk ...

You neither must remove GnuPG (1) installed as gpg, nor can safely. It can safely coexist with GnuPG 2 installed as gpg2, which is supported by Enigmail. The "old" GnuPG version 1 gpg is still used intensively by Ubuntu's (and Debian's) package management system and is not ready to be replaced by GnuPG 2 yet, at least doing so is not officially supported ...

Use gparted from the live CD. The community wiki help contains some good explanations with examples about how to do it https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowtoPartition/ Last but not least, keep in mind that modifying partitions is a delicate task, so backing up your data before is always a good idea.

Here's what I think it is. You're uninstalling LibreOffice and an upgrade to completely unrelated packages is trying to occur. Your command output says that 8 apps are to be upgraded, so I'm pretty sure that's where the 30MB download is coming from.

In case anyone is wondering, there's a much more sane and graceful way to do this. The last previous answer hopes to do the same thing, but that search fails since architectures are not actually part of package names, except in special cases. as root (or with sudo) run: aptitude remove ~i~ri386 If you don't use aptitude over apt-get already, do. It's ...

I don't know if this will help, but it worked out for me. I was looking to upgrade GDAL, and since I had installed it manually from source, I wanted to uninstall the old version first. So I read somewhere (sorry but I had so many tabs open that I can't find it now) that I should just install the latest package and that would override the previous. And I read ...

After that was not successful, I have tested this hard way and it works. sudo rm /usr/bin/click sudo apt-get autoremove -f click The file has a problem when importing a Python module, and you want to remove the package anyway. Therefore, the file can be removed manually.

Well, after some searching I managed to forcefully remove the libqupzilla1 package and update qupzilla to the latest release. For future reference: I removed the package using the following code sudo dpkg --force-all -P libqupzilla1 After that I installed the lastest version using sudo apt-get install qupzilla

All you really need to do is install lxde is this: sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop The removal of the extra files can be done also if you're short on hard drive space, but if all you need is more speed, that will do if for you (see How can you remove Unity?). Be sure to choose LXDE when you login.
