View Full Version : [ubuntu] insserv and sysv-rc dependencies

September 10th, 2010, 02:54 PM
I upgraded a server installation from 8.04 to 10.4, but get this one nagging message when I update now:

Reading state information... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
insserv: Breaks: sysv-rc (< 2.87dsf-3) but 2.86.ds1-14.1ubuntu45 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

Using -f doesn't take care of it. I've tried
dpkg --purge remove sysv-rc but nothing, autoremove, and so on, but this persists. Any suggestions?
