    gvfs-daemons upgrade breaking on 12.04

    I'm on 12.04 and an update last week seems to prevent me from using apt-get.

    Code:
    drew@drew-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get -f install
    Reading package lists... Done

    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/gvfs-daemons_1.12.1-0ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
     gvfs-daemons: 1.12.1-0ubuntu1.1 (Multi-Arch: foreign) is not co-installable with gvfs-daemons:amd74 1.12.1-0ubuntu1.1 (Multi-Arch: foreign) which is currently installed
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     /var/cache/apt/archives/gvfs-daemons_1.12.1-0ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    I'm a bit confused by this. Why is it trying to install a NEW version of gvfs-daemons when I apparently already have it installed? This prevents me from installing anything else. I've tried the dance of dpkg --configure -a and apt-get -f install and nothing lets me get past this particular package. I added a ppa this weekend but I have since removed it. Is there a way to figure out what package is demanding that gvfs-daemons be updated so that I can either deselect it or remove it? I'm not super familiar with all the dpkg/apt-get commands so thanks in advance for any help!

    open a terminal and run:

    sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/gvfs-daemons_1.12.1-0ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -f

    I've tried that before and I tried it again now, same issue/error. This may be nothing but I noticed that the error from dpkg says that gvfs-daemons is not co-installable with gvfs-daemons:amd74 - is that really right (I thought the arch would be amd64, not 74)?

    :amd64 means 64 bits installation (compared to i386 which means 32 bits), there is no amd74 on earth till now

    have you made some tweaks ? like adding ppa(s) ?

    please post the result of:

    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    I have added several PPAs on my system including those for chromium, google chrome, firefox, handbrake, dropbox, and heroku. I added the gnome3-team ghome3 precise PPA recently (this weekend) but the issue was happening last week so I don't think it's related. None of these PPAs were added right before this started happening.

    you can first disable the precise-backports repos (from synaptic or software source) to see if it helps after updating of course. If not that means that one of the added ppa also provide a gvfs package which conflict with the default one; in that case, select the gvfs* packages to downgrade to the default ones. If you cant, then use ppa-purge to clean that ppa (ppa-purge need to be installed first)

    First of all, thanks for taking the time to help me out. I really appreciate it!

    Let me see if I have this right, just to be clear:

    I can disable the precise-backports sources from the sources.list by simply commenting them out, correct?

    select the gvfs* packages to downgrade to the default ones
    I'm not sure I know how to do this. My best guess would be to use dpkg but I'm not familiar enough with it to know for sure.

    How can I determine which ppa is providing a gvfs package which conflicts with the default one?

    Thanks again for the pointers!

    EDIT

    As an update, I commented out the precise-backports packages and no dice, still getting the dpkg error code and complaints about gvfs-daemons not being co-installable with gvfs-daemons:amd74. Can I remove gvfs-daemons and reinstall it or is it a critical package? That amd74 really makes me think something is broken with my installation of it.

    Still looking for solutions to this because I basically can't install anything - this package prevents installation of anything else. Any other ideas about how I might reinstall it or fix the issue?

    Never did find a solution to this. If anyone encounters something similar, I recommend backing up what you have and reinstalling
