When I attempt to perform a general update, or install some software, I get the following error:
(Reading database ... 75%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
files list file for package `dosfstools' contains empty filename
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
I have the Ubuntu standard set installed, which claims to contain dosfstools, and I can find the associated .list file, but I'm not sure how to go about fixing this. Can anyone shed light on this problem and a potential solution?
