View Full Version : Error 100 with dpkg

February 19th, 2016, 12:43 AM
I'm a newbie migrating from Windows coding to Ubuntu, but once I logged onto my machine there was this error with dpkg which is preventing me from installing any packages. I might have messed up while installing previous packages and etc.
I'm using Ubuntu 15.10 btw.
