Screwed up an upgrade from 14.10->15.04->15.10 badly. I've been messing around in recovery mode and am confidentish that I managed to get all the broken packages/dependencies removed and reinstalled, but now I'm running into this queer issue. Aptitude won't run, it says I need to do stuff with dpkg. dpkg will do stuff, but always gets hung up on
