When I do the following command,

sudo dpkg --configure -a

I get the following error:

  • can you add some more info on what you did before running into this? – Anders F. U. Kiær Dec 14 '13 at 10:27
  • im not really sure. This has been an ongoing issue for a while. if I do 'sudo apt-get install -f' I get pretty much the same error. What is cpufreqd and how do i fix it? – user1344643 Dec 14 '13 at 17:41
  • 'sudo dpkg -C' The following packages are only half configured, probably due to problems configuring them the first time. The configuration should be retried using dpkg --configure <package> or the configure menu option in dselect: cpufreqd fully configurable daemon for dynamic frequency and volta – user1344643 Dec 14 '13 at 17:58
  • Can you add the output of uname -a? – Anders F. U. Kiær Dec 15 '13 at 22:34

It is the crash of cpufreqd that blocks your apt.

I would suggest you to remove the package cpufreqd with sudo apt-get remove cpufreqd and then do apt-get -f install to look for and fix broken package depencies.

If the command sudo apt-get remove cpufreqd do not work, try sudo dpkg --remove cpufreqd.

When you get your system running normally again can you try to reinstall the cpufreqd package if you need it.
