This question already has an answer here:

I cannot install any packages, the problem started when I tried to install the ruby2.0. Before, apt-get was installing everything. But now, every package returns this error:

Processing triggers for man-db (2.6.7.1-1ubuntu1) ...
dpkg: error processing package gnome-session-bin (--configure):
 package gnome-session-bin is not ready for configuration
 cannot configure (current status `half-installed')

I've tried also

sudo dpkg gnome-session-bin --configure

dpkg: error processing package gnome-session-bin (--configure):
 package gnome-session-bin is not ready for configuration
 cannot configure (current status `half-installed')
Errors were encountered while processing:
 gnome-session-bin

I've already cleaned my /var/lib/dpkg/info/ directory and

sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install -f

Doesn't work at all. What is a half installed package? How do I get rid of it?

I've solved using synaptic. I've reinstalled the package gnome-session-bin and the system is running ok
