View Full Version : [SOLVED] Ubuntu Software Center: Package operation failed but installs anyway?

So, when I try to install anything from the Ubuntu Software Center, it asks me to authorize it with my password, so I do, but when I hit authorize all that happens is that the password box goes away, and the window stays there, and the stupid thing wont install until you get rid of the window, so I hit the exit button (since now the authorize and cancel buttons magically don't work) and it seems to install fine. But then towards the end I get this every time (this particular one was when I downloaded OpenShot Video Editor):

And I have NO Idea what it means, but when I get out of that window that package finishes installing and then works fine. So.....what? It said it failed! Why is it working? SO confused.


And fyi, I have little in-depth knowledge of Ubuntu because when a smart computer guy was cleaning up my laptop and examining it as to why it used to shut down at random, he heard that I hated windows and so he made it so I can dual boot Vista (BLEGH) and Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop. Sometime last year I'd been actively learning the command line, but I've forgotten it all. So my knowledge is pretty sparse (hopefully not for long);)

There is a couple of things to keep in mind first.



Make sure everything is up-to-date software wise, there are a lot of dependencies that each application needs. (Example: Directx for 3D gaming)

To do this: System > Administration > Update Manager [Located on the top bar]


Try uninstalling it. Then Reinstall it.

The password it asks for is your superuser or /root password. Once you put this in it will stay there for a period of time unless your ask it to instantly forget in options. Also make sure your drivers are up-to-date.


System > Administration > Additional Drivers

Let me know if the methods I've given do not work.

Er....I've done everything except uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing else has worked. Are you saying uninstall the package I installed, or uninstall/reinstall the Software Center? How do you do that?:tongue:

Oh my apology I should have been more specific. The software you installed uninstall that. It might work by doing that. Worse come to worse, depending on how much time and effort you have invested it might be wise to reinstall the OS itself, you should have all if not most of the dependences you need to install that application right after you have installed Ubuntu on your System. Ubuntu itself takes no time to install.

I hope reinstalling works for you through, I know what a pain it is to install a OS again. Please let me know if the reinstall after uninstalling works.

Good Luck.

Gah! Okay. I just got settled in too! I'll have to figure out how to do that :| It might all be because the smart computer guy put natty narwhal alpha 1 on it (probably because he's a developer and he had the disk around, as my guess would be). I could just deal with it I suppose. I mean, it's installing the packages anyway, even though it says they failed. I don't know what it might be doing to glitch things up, but meh. I'm used to VISTA, baby glitches don't bother me! :P

Lol sounds, good. If you do have issues just continue to ask around I am sure You will get your answer.
