    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    When I try to run the command: "sudo apt-get install deluge" to install Deluge, I get this error.

    Here is the full Terminal:

    Hi

    Do you have the software centre or update-manager open ? if so then close them.

    Kind regards
