    Re: Package System Broken

    I really do not know.

    Just tried updating laptop which I have not updated for months and got into a similar dependency loop which is with a :i386 file that should not even be there? So I am also working on my system.

    Re: Package System Broken

    @ oldfred, Thanks once more. All our systems "breaking" must be something in the air !

    I will do the safe thing and try and download that .deb file ! Expanding my knowledge base .. I have yet to add to it this day, but it is early yet .

    Re: Package System Broken

    Hope this can help. Checked my versions of 12.04LTS 64 bit, installed with about a year between.

    I have different initramsf depending if I have checked in (Pre-released update) precise-proposed or not, in Repository settings...

    initramfs-tools-bin 0.99ubuntu13.3 <-- precise-proposed checked
    initramfs-tools-bin 0.99ubuntu13.2 <-- not checked


    Azyx@Datorn:~$ lsb_release -a
    LSB Version: core-2.0-amd64:core-2.0-noarch:core-3.0-amd64:core-3.0-noarch:core-3.1-amd64:core-3.1-noarch:core-3.2-amd64:core-3.2-noarch:core-4.0-amd64:core-4.0-noarch
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS
    Release: 12.04
    Codename: precise

    It was the same release on both my computes. One installed for a year ago and one just fore a couple of mounth ago, so It does not seems to depend on which version the orginal install was, but how you set repository updates?

    /Cheers

    Edit. I have backports also checked.

    Re: Package System Broken

    I have wonder why Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64bit, are instable compared to 10.04LTS 32-bit...and find now that I have backport checked....Maybe not a good idea to uncheck it ????

    Re: Package System Broken

    @ Azyx; I agree, not a good thing to enable "backport" and "proposed" repository sources, unless one has a demonstrated need to do so .. When enabled one should be aware that these can and do break your stable system .. software from "backports" should work but can not fit every configuration; where as "proposed" is just that .. maybe ! .. proposed is for development work/testing -expect breakage.

    but ain't ubuntu wonderful

    Re: Package System Broken

    I found my fix. I went thru a lot on my own and had just about figured it out on my own, when I found this which was the bottom line. But I had to use dpkg with the force command to purge the incorrect versions which were i386 in my case and then download and force install of correct venison. Then it seems to let me update and work.

    Do not know if similar forcing of an uninstall & reinstall my work for you or not. Force can be dangous as you can get things totally out of sync. -r is remove some other threads have used -P which is the same per man dpkg. And -i is install.

    Internal Error, No file name for libapt-pkg4.12

    Put pre-released back on then,
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo dpkg --force-depends -r libapt-pkg4.12:i386
    sudo dpkg --force-depends -r libapt-inst1.4:i386
    sudo dpkg -i libapt-pkg4.12_0.8.16~exp12ubuntu10.2_amd64.deb

    Re: Package System Broken

    blueboy1; Certainly worth considering ..

    Presently I am working to get freed up and craft that code for "apt-get download" to make sure we get the desired file. Just need now to make sure my t's are crossed and the i's have dots in my prospective procedure.

    Back soonest.

    it can happen
