I know similar topics have already been posted, but I seem unable to apply any of the solutions, since the faulty installation of the VyprVPN beta, which I downloaded from their website, is not allowing me to open Ubuntu Software Center or to install any new items. I just keep on getting the error "E:Vyprvpn needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it."
I tried manually deleting the entry from /var/lib/dpkg/status that reads:
Package: vyprvpn Status: install reinstreq half-configured Priority: optional Section: net/non-free Installed-Size: 15 Maintainer: Gregory Horejsi Architecture: amd64 Version: 0.0.1-55 Provides: vyprvpn Depends: network-manager, network-manager-pptp, network-manager-openvpn, network-manager-vpnc Description: VyprVPN for Linux - Provides a simple service and command line interface to manage NetworkManager based connections to VyprVPN Homepage: http://www.goldenfrog.com/
But I get the following error:
Could not create a backup file while saving “/var/lib/dpkg/status”
Any help resolving this would be much appreciated. I am running Ubuntu 15.10.
