I know there's already a lot of duplicates for this, but for some reason, I just can't get ttf-mscorefonts-installer to stop bugging me with the error message.

I've followed the steps from here: "Failure to download extra data files" after installing ttf-mscorefonts-installer

apt-get says something about the hash sum not being the same for one of the files. When I manually download the files and run sudo dpkg-reconfigure ttf-mscorefonts-installer, nothing happens! The command runs without any output!

So, since dpkg-reconfigure doesn't do anything, how do I fix this? I only need Wine for 1 program, and it works just fine. Is there a way to simply turn off the popup?

@carnendil, thanks for linking that other question. When I installed the 3.6 version of the package, everything worked fine. The download script looks a lot different compared to the 3.4 package, and it didn't have any issues with invalid content headers or hash sum mismatches.
