View Full Version : Another `sudo dpkg-reconfigure -aŽ error

November 26th, 2009, 04:36 PM
I recently upgraded an UNR variant dist from jaunty to karmik.

By running `sudo dpkg-reconfigure -aŽ, noting happens except following error return:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a
[sudo] password for user:
This is not dpkg install-info anymore, but GNU install-info
See the man page for ginstall-info for command line arguments
install-info: No dir file specified; try --help for more information.

May someone help in resolving this issue or refine diag?
Many thanks in advance for tips.

best regards.

Why is it that you need to run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a".

Is there a problem with updates?

On an AspireOne oao150, in order

1. I updated jaunty and rebooted before upgrading to karmik.
2. Karmik Upgrade was apparently successfull. No broken deps. I cleaned up.
3. Found some problem by using the system: acpi errors in logs; session lock not working anymore after system wakup; terminal and other gnome apps freezing some time...
4. After last karmik kernel update, i removed tuxonice and dependents.

A bit stuck now, would like to rerun `dpkg-reconfigure -a --default-priority'...
