I try to install a .deb file in my vagrant box that use generic/ubuntu1604 image but i got the following error:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Reading state information... Done A queue based service for watching directories for files to process as per its configuration. Do you want to install the software package? [y/N]:y (Reading database ... 108439 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack wtbuild.deb ... dpkg (subprocess): unable to execute new pre-installation script (/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst): No such file or directory dpkg: error processing archive wtbuild.deb (--install): subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 2 Errors were encountered while processing: wtbuild.deb
That only happens with that image. If i try to install the same .deb file in my linux machine ( xenial ) or in another vagrant box with a different linux image the .deb file is installed correctly.
