    You cannot simply type "Y". You actually have to type in a phrase, like "Yes, I want to go ahead and destroy my system!". LoL!

    Here is the result of the dpkg-reconfigure command (above):

    Code:
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh -a

    Re: GNOME3 Staging PPA

    There are no updates available for evince (the old 3.6 is still there), eog and others. Why not? In the ppa package it says there are.

    Re: GNOME3 Staging PPA

    Removing that one is too scary, and probably will really break the system.

    If you have deactivated all the ppas, then you get, into synaptic, a list of non genuine packages (under "status" synaptic tab selected in bottom left pane).
    There, try to find the package(s) you can downgrade without having to accept the removal of other package(s).
    I've often seen the case of only one downgraded package allow then to downgrade the others without trouble. Thats all the joice of that madness cross (recursive) dependencies.

    Re: GNOME3 Staging PPA

    There is a problem in Gnome3 Staging PPA now.

    The newest gnome-desktop3_3.7.3-0ubuntu1~raring3
    changed the name of the package
    libgnome-desktop-3-4
    to
    libgnome-desktop-3-5.

    A number of packages (like gnome-control-center, eog, nautilus) depend on libgnome-desktop-3-4.
    So all those must be rebuilt before this installation.

    Excellent idea(s)... Thanks!

    I have several "half-installed" packages now. I can see these in the error dialogs (in CLI) and my system logs.

    However, the "half-installed" libpam package is a deal breaker. Without a functioning libpam, I cannot install, remove, upgrade or downgrade anything else.

    libpam is the linchpin. Unless I can fix it, all will be lost.

    BTW, there is one libpam component in the GNOME 3 Staging PPA. That's the reason I'm bring it up in this thread.

    I'm NOT declaring this component to be THE problem. Just saying...

    Re: GNOME3 Staging PPA

    maybe you need to re-activate that ppa , to get around that libpam issue, to be able to downgrade the other package(s). I cant draw a straight howto, you have to try step by step.

    This is a true conundrum -- and also the reason why I love testing.

    The original perl problem caused upgraded packages to only be "half-installed" and/or "half-configured" (actual terms from the system logs).

    This didn't cause any major problems, until a libpam upgrade was "half-configured". And, I haven't figured out a workaround yet.

    The borked libpam package refuses to allow anything to be installed/removed/reinstalled/purged et cetera -- including itself. Thus, a double-whammy.

    It appears to be a rather unique situation, and countless web searches have failed to produce any useful results.

    The easy way out would be to simply divorce myself of the situation and do a fresh install, but where's the fun in that?!?!?

    I never heard of libpam before it took a dump, and as a consequence of trying to fix it (and perl 5) I've discovered a whole new world of debug tools and methodologies that I didn't even know existed. It's a learning experience, and experience is the best teacher, or so they say. So, it's providing me with a quality education -- that's all.

    Anyway, I'll keep chipping away at the mighty oak.

    When I've had my fill, I'll dispatch my old install with a belch, and put Humpty Dumpty back together again. In the meantime, I'm having fun!

    It appears to be a rather unique situation, and countless web searches have failed to produce any useful results.

    The easy way out would be to simply divorce myself of the situation and do a fresh install, but where's the fun in that?!?!?

    I never heard of libpam before it took a dump, and as a consequence of trying to fix it (and perl 5) I've discovered a whole new world of debug tools and methodologies that I didn't even know existed. It's a learning experience, and experience is the best teacher, or so they say. So, it's providing me with a quality education -- that's all.

    Anyway, I'll keep chipping away at the mighty oak.

    When I've had my fill, I'll dispatch my old install with a belch, and put Humpty Dumpty back together again. In the meantime, I'm having fun!
    Have you tried to reinstall critical packages by chrooting from a live-USB?
