    Package dependency issues transmission

    I'm running 12.04 and had updated my repos to pull a newer version of transmission. After a couple months during a system update I had an error telling me that transmission-common was the incorrect version. So, now I can't run apt-get install/update without errors. Here is the versions I currently have installed


    Code:
    prem1er@bubbles:~/download$ transmission-daemon -V
    transmission-daemon 2.82 (14160)
    prem1er@bubbles:~/download$ transmission-gtk -v
    transmission-gtk 2.82 (14160)
    
    transmission-common - 2.82-0ubuntu0.12.04.2 is installed
    The problem is that both of these packages have a dependency on a different version of transmission-common and I can't meet both (as in >=). What do I need to do here to fix this? TIA

    Re: Package dependency issues transmission

    Have you already tried a purge --> reinstall of the packages? That is -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge transmission transmission-daemon transmission-gtk transmission-common
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install transmission
    If they don't help, please post the error messages when doing "apt-get update", plus outputs of -
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep transmission
    apt-cache show transmission-common | grep Version
    apt-cache show transmission-gtk | grep Version

    Re: Package dependency issues transmission

    Thanks for the reply. No, I wanted to try and avoid doing a reinstall, because I have some configurations that I wanted to keep. Basically I'm running 2 instances of transmission at the same time to segregate certain files. I can always save my configurations, but will a purge remove the following directories?

    /var/lib/transmission and /etc/transmission

    I'm not sure. Best to back them up as well if they contain something you consider important.

    This worked for me. I did need to backup my configuration as the purge parameter removed the files. All seems to be good now. Thanks.
