I am new to linux and installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bit on my machine. I was attempting to install "synaptic" and used this command:
sudo apt-get install synaptic Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following additional packages will be installed: docbook-xml libcairo-perl libept1.5.0 libglib-perl libgtk2-perl libpango-perl librarian0 rarian-compat sgml-data Suggested packages: docbook docbook-dsssl docbook-xsl docbook-defguide libfont-freetype-perl libgtk2-perl-doc perlsgml w3-recs opensp libxml2-utils dwww menu deborphan apt-xapian-index tasksel The following NEW packages will be installed: docbook-xml libcairo-perl libept1.5.0 libglib-perl libgtk2-perl libpango-perl librarian0 rarian-compat sgml-data synaptic 0 upgraded, 10 newly installed, 0 to remove and 135 not upgraded. Need to get 0 B/2,888 kB of archives. After this operation, 16.4 MB of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Y dpkg: error: configuration error: /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/architectures:1: unknown option 'foreign-architecture' E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
I have seen some other solutions here, but seems not working in my case. Don't know how to solve or how do i install synaptic. Any help is highly appreciated
Thanks in advance.
