I'm getting trouble by the error:

click-system-hooks.service couldn't start.

Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/click_0.4.38.5ubuntu0.2_amd64.deb

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

It's also showing this message:

enter image description here

How to solve it, pls?

Tried:

sudo dpkg --configure -a

sudo apt-get install systemd

And the out put:

Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

systemd is already the newest version.

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: click : Depends: python3-click (= 0.4.38.5) but 0.4.38.5ubuntu0.2 is to be installed

E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Try: sudo apt-get -f install

It looks that don't have systemd, but installer false detects it installed. It is a known bug in Ubunutu #1448623. Make sure, the systemd is installed

dpkg --configure -a
apt-get install systemd

Then purge click, as suggested in this comment by weiqi_chen

sudo pip3 uninstall click
sudo apt-get purge click

Your click problem

click for Vivid has the version 0.4.38.5ubuntu0.2 and needs exactly the same python3-click version. Both are in the repositories.

  1. Remove the DEB file

    sudo apt-get clean
    
  2. Update the package information

    sudo apt-get update
    
  3. Reinstall click

    sudo apt-get install --reinstall click
    

Your ttf-mscorefonts-installer

  1. Install the package ttf-mscorefonts-installer, we need some things from the package ater

    sudo apt-get install --reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    
  2. Download and install the fonts

    TMP=$(mktemp -d)
    cd "$TMP"
    awk '/Url/ {system("wget "$2)}' /usr/share/package-data-downloads/ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    sudo /usr/lib/msttcorefonts/update-ms-fonts "$TMP"/*
    
  3. Avoid future error message

    sudo touch /var/lib/update-notifier/package-data-downloads/ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    
  4. Housekeeping

    cd ..
    rm -r "$TMP"
    
  • Done and fail. Impossible to install click, yet. – evergreen Oct 23 '15 at 16:58
  • sudo apt-get install --reinstall click sorry, this is the complete command – A.B. Oct 23 '15 at 17:17
  • Even sudo apt-get install --reinstall click applied, no result. However, it helps with installing fonts. – evergreen Oct 23 '15 at 17:57
