    Update error

    I tried to install some updates this morning and I got the following error:

    (Reading database ... 80%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
    files list file for package 'libpciaccess0' is missing final newline
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)


    I've searched around and I can't find anything to help.

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    The package download is probably corrupted, delete all the package files from your APT cache to force a fresh download.

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately that was the first thing I tried with no success. I've also tried reinstalling libpciaccess0.

    Are you experiencing disk errors lately? I looked up the above error and landed on this bug caused by corrupt or failing disk -
