View Full Version : [ubuntu] util-linux upgrade error

January 23rd, 2009, 08:01 PM
I cannot upgrade any packages on my 2.6.24-22-generic system because the util-linux package keeps error-ing out. Here is the error:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/util-linux_2.13.1-5ubuntu3_amd64.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 9

Any ideas? I already tred searching for answers and nothing worked so far.

Please help!

Can you please open a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal) and post the whole output to

sudo apt-get upgradeThis should reveal a bit more info on the error message
