I have the Numix icons package on PPA on Kubuntu 14.10.
That has been working fine, but a week or so ago an update came through, it installs and says complete I run
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get upgrade that day and there are no updates available, but the next day it update appears back again.
I haven't been able to find anyone else with the same package problem, i.e. I don't think it is package related or there would be others with same issue.
Preparing to unpack .../numix-icon-theme_0.3+478~201507080101~ubuntu14.10.1_all.deb ... Unpacking numix-icon-theme (0.3+478~201507080101~ubuntu14.10.1) over (0.3+476~201507070101~ubuntu14.10.1) ...
I did try one thing delete the cache in /var/cache/apt/archives - but it didn't work and the post was slightly unrelated, will try again - if directed to correct cache file to delete?
I tried :
sudo apt-mark unhold package_name
which didn't work, the package isn't held.
then after searching tried :
sudo apt-get -f install sudo dpkg --configure -a
Need to wait till tommorrow ?? ....
It is not the october 2014 change to the PPA as it has been working normally till July 2015.
