    package failure: tex-common

    Hi,

    I have been getting errors during updates all related to the tex-common package. The main error is "package failure: tex-common 3.13~ubuntu 12.04.01".

    When running
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    I get
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    tex-common
    texlive-luatex
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    Can anyone help with fixing this problem as I do need to use LateX?
    Thanks,
    Jane

    open your terminal and do these steps one by one

    Code:
    dpkg -r tex-common
     dpkg -r texlive-luatex
    sudo apt-get update
    suso apt-get install -f

    Thanks for the quick reply, I did as you mentioned and still having problems with tex-common.

    Running dpkg for texlive-luatex, went smoothly but for tex-common I get this:

    Code:
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent removal of tex-common:
     lmodern depends on tex-common (>= 3).
     texlive-common depends on tex-common (>= 3).

     luatex depends on tex-common (>= 3.12).
     texlive-doc-base depends on tex-common (>= 3).
     texlive-base depends on tex-common (>= 3).

    open your terminal

    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -f
    then try again .

    Re: package failure: tex-common

    Still same problems:

    Code:
    Setting up tex-common (3.13~ubuntu12.04.1) ...
    Running mktexlsr. This may take some time... done.
    Running updmap-sys. This may take some time... 
    updmap-sys failed. Output has been stored in
    /tmp/updmap.jtEJljTW
    Please include this file if you report a bug.
    
    Sometimes, not accepting conffile updates in /etc/texmf/updmap.d
    causes updmap-sys to fail.  Please check for files with extension
    .dpkg-dist or .ucf-dist in this directory
    
    dpkg: error processing tex-common (--configure):
     subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     tex-common
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
