    Re: E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    I'm getting the same error with postfix.
    tried autoremove, update everything in this thread. Nothing helps for now.

    Below are results of dpkg and install -f commands. Any help appreciated.

    Hi

    @von Papst

    /var/lib/dpkg/info/postfix.postinst: 493: cannot create /etc/aliases: Directory nonexistent
    You could try creating the directory as that seems to be its problem

    Code:
     
    sudo mkdir /etc/aliases
    If that does not work then you can try this to create asn empty file

    Code:
    sudo rmdir /etc/aliases
    Code:
     
    sudo touch /etc/aliases
    And if that does not woirk the post the output of the postinst file.

    Code:
     
    cat /var/lib/dpkg/info/postfix.postinst
    Kind regards

    I assume this returns nothing ?

    Can you post the output of this command

    This appears to be the problem. First let's check the state of the symlinks in the alternatives directory.

    Open a terminal and type...

    Code:
    ls  -l /etc/alternatives/*flashplugin
    Small L after ls. Post back the results.

    Also, from the terminal. please post back the output from the command below.

    Code:
    grep -H ^ /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/*flashplugin
    One again i ask you to post in between code tags. It makes it easier for me to read.

    Here's how you do it again.

    Post the output between code tags like this (this is how i do it)

    [code]matthew@matthew-Aspire-7540 ~ % ls /etc/alternatives/*flashplugin
    /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin
    matthew@matthew-Aspire-7540 ~ %[/code]

    to get output like this

    Code:
    matthew@matthew-Aspire-7540 ~ % ls /etc/alternatives/*flashplugin
    /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin
    matthew@matthew-Aspire-7540 ~ %
    Kind regards
