    Re: trouble with apt-get upgrade

    Looking at a couple other threads and bug reports for procps, fail-to-configure has happened before recently, some resolved successfully...however, none with this specific error message. Nevertheless, not alone!

    Hang on, that's a not-current version of procps.
    Consider deleting it from the package cache ( sudo apt-get clean procps ) and redownloading ( sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade )

    Code:
    $ rmadison -u ubuntu procps
    [...]
        procps | 1:3.3.3-2ubuntu9 | saucy-updates | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, powerpc
    [...]
    Ok so first of all yes, I still get the same error after reboot.

    next I tried the following but no good:

    Code:
    ~$ sudo apt-get clean procps 
    ~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    Re: trouble with apt-get upgrade

    Ok so I ran this from one of the links you posted ( I don't know if this info helps at all but here it is):

    Code:
    :~$ cat /etc/sysctl.d/*.conf /etc/sysctl.conf | sudo sysctl -p -
    
    kernel.printk = 4 4 1 7
    net.ipv6.conf.all.use_tempaddr = 2
    net.ipv6.conf.default.use_tempaddr = 2
    kernel.kptr_restrict = 1
    fs.protected_hardlinks = 1
    fs.protected_symlinks = 1
    kernel.sysrq = 176
    net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 1
    net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 1
    net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies = 1
    kernel.yama.ptrace_scope = 1
    vm.mmap_min_addr = 65536
    fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 524288

    Re: trouble with apt-get upgrade

    slgtheindividual, & Ian;

    Here is my present thoughts.
    The out put of "cat /etc/sysctl.d/*.conf /etc/sysctl.conf | sudo sysctl -p -" indicates no errors,
    The Launchpad bugs all appear to be squashed by procps version "procps/1:3.3.3-2ubuntu8"

    Currently slgtheindividual, your system is attempting in install a later version of procps:
    ~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
    Setting up procps (1:3.3.4-2) ...
    And what is called for is procps version "1:3.3.3-2ubuntu9: amd64 i386".

    This mismatch in versions may well and likely to be the source of the "update-rc.d: error: insserv rejected the script header" error message. [what a wonderful catch on Ian's part]

    Let us focus our attention on getting the proper version of procps installed.

    Let's try this less intrusive method once more to see if the proper version will install;
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean procps
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall procps
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    else will consider editing the control files and try try again (??)

    //
    of topic: I have chores I must get done so will be absent from the keyboard for several hours. I will return asap.

    I think I see
    light at the end of the tunnel

    Ok well unfortunately this didn't work (the reinstall step gave me an error) output below:

    Re: trouble with apt-get upgrade

    slgtheindividual; Well,

    Let's do surgery !
    Put the cat outside, the children to bed, check the skies for storms -> in this procedure a mishap will be fatal (only so in the event of a loss of power), and if we must resort to manually removing "procps" and (re-)installing.
    terminal codes:
    Code:
    sudo cp /var/lib/dpkg/status /var/lib/dpkg/status-orig
    load the file into the text editor "gedit" (in my case my preferred editor)

    Search for the term "procps" and
    Then edit the file to remove the reference to procps;
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/status
    Removing the entire stanza from this point:
    Package: procps
    all the way to and inclusive of this:
    Homepage: http://gitorious.org/procps
    Original-Maintainer: Craig Small <csmall@debian.org>
    leaving one blank line between the remaining stanzas as the delimiter,
    save and exit the text editor;
    and next in terminal do:
    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/procps.list
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall procps
    I am not 100% sure of this "install --reinstall" but rather try this as to "remove" procps" - leaving your system naked and alone in the event that a loss of power were to occur - while "installing" the repository version of "procps".

    If the package manager says no can do, then will resort to removing "procps" prior to "installing" !! - Will in all likely hood have to repeat the surgery in "/var/lib/dpkg/status" and "rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/procps.list".

    where there is a will there is a way
    THE current(cy) in Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PopularPages

    Happy ubutu'n !

    Re: trouble with apt-get upgrade

    Ok so I did everything up until the update and there were no problems, after that there were:

    Code:
    ~$ sudo cp /var/lib/dpkg/status /var/lib/dpkg/status-orig
    
    ~$ gksudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/status

    Re: trouble with apt-get upgrade

    slgtheindividual;Well !

    Not what I had expected !

    OK ... make sure that what was cut from the "status file" was not replaced, (as the update may have replaced them)
    and the procps.list file also not replaced,
    ok the biggy let's do in terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove procps
    sudo apt-get install procps
    Naked and alone .. if nothing interrupts, no problem !

    here we go again
    THE current(cy) in Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PopularPages

    Happy ubutu'n !
