An interrupted installation of updates resulted in ubuntuone-control-panel-qt breaking and now I cannot install or update anything. There seems to be an error in python2.7 -

ImportError: No module named _sysconfigdata_nd
dpkg: error processing archive ubuntuone-control-panel-qt_13.09-0ubuntu1_all.deb (--install):

When I try to reinstall the package via .deb

a dpkg --audit yields:

The following packages are in a mess due to serious problems during installation. They must be reinstalled for them (and any packages that depend on them) to function properly:
⠀python-pexpect Python module for automating interactive applications
⠀ubuntuone-control-panel-qt Ubuntu One Control Panel - Qt frontend
⠀hplip-data HP Linux Printing and Imaging - data files
⠀python-libxml2 Python bindings for the GNOME XML library
⠀apport automatically generate crash reports for debugging

The following packages are only half configured, probably due to problems configuring them the first time. The configuration should be retried using dpkg --configure or the configure menu option in dselect:
⠀python-ubuntuone-client Ubuntu One client Python libraries
⠀python-ubuntuone-control-panel Ubuntu One Control Panel - Python Libraries

--configure or --configure -a doesn't work

Any help?

If you have "Synaptic" package manager installed, launch that program and on the left panel is a choice for "Broken" packages. Use Synaptic to try to fix them or remove them.

Lastly, you can try to reinstall and "force" the package to be installed: How to reinstall a package

  • Cant seem to run Synaptic - E: The package ubuntuone-control-panel-qt needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. E: Internal error opening cache (1). Please report. – baale7 May 30 '14 at 8:10
  • Also cannot reinstall it, keep getting the same error - E: The package ubuntuone-control-panel-qt needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. – baale7 May 30 '14 at 8:16

Try http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/all/ubuntuone-control-panel-qt/download Download the .deb file, click it and see if this installs. The one thing I don't like about Ubuntu is that if 1 package is broken, it holds up others from installing
