    Question I can install anything from the USC

    Hello, and thanks in advance.
    Whenever I try to download and install something from
    Ubuntu software center, i can't...
    It does download it, but can install it
    i always get this:

    Code:
    installArchives() failed: Setting up install-info (4.13a.dfsg.1-10ubuntu2) ...
    /etc/environment: line 1: acquire::http::proxyfalse: command not found
    dpkg: error processing install-info (--configure):
     subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 127
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     install-info
    Error in function: 
    Setting up install-info (4.13a.dfsg.1-10ubuntu2) ...
    /etc/environment: line 1: acquire::http::proxyfalse: command not found
    dpkg: error processing install-info (--configure):
     subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 127

    Thanks.

    Do you connect to the Internet through a proxy?

    Hi

    Welcome to the forums

    Press alt + F2 and type this into it.

    Code:
    gedit /etc/environment
    Copy and paste the text from gedit into your next post.

    Kind regards

    Hi

    @OP

    In your case this was the solution, however this is not a general solution (deleting the contents of /etc/environment) to fix these errors for any other people searching for a solution to USC problems.
