View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrading to Vivid and systemd won't install

I'm in the middle of an upgrade to Vivid. I have foolishly skipped a few releases--too late now. Here's the error I'm getting:

The following extra packages will be installed:
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 482 not upgraded.
14 not fully installed or removed.

dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

Any ideas? The above is what happens when I do
apt-get -f install and I've tried many times to do
dpkg --configure -a but it has no positive effect.
