During upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 I got lots of errors about various items related to TeX. Most of them reported 'tex-common is not configured' as at least a part of the problem.
When I try to reinstall tex-common, I get the error: No file name for tex-common:i386
Other side effects of this problem are that I can no longer start Eclipse, and as you would expect Kile and other applications that manipulate LaTeX don't work any more.
Any help would be much appreciated.
