    Exclamation Problems upgrading samba

    Yesterday an upgrade to samba was not successfully completed. The error message is:

    Errors were encountered while processing:
    samba
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    A package failed to install. Trying to recover:
    Setting up samba (2:3.6.18-1ubuntu1) ...
    update-rc.d: /etc/init.d/samba exists during rc.d purge (use -f to force)
    dpkg: error processing samba (--configure):
    subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

    I've tried running "dpkg-reconfigure samba", "dpkg --force-configure samba", reinstalling from Synaptic, completely uninstalling + re-installing using Synaptic. I checked that the file flagged in the error report (/etc/init.d/samba) had been removed before the re-installation.

    All to no avail.

    Anyone else seeing the same/have any suggestions to fix?

    Curiously, Synaptic does not flag any broken packages, though "dpkg-reconfigure samba" says it can't because samba is broken.
