Hi I'm a newbie to ubuntu 7.10. While installing any package in the terminal the installation ends with this error.

errors were encountered while processing : jde
E; Subprocess /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Everything else seems to go as it should. tried to Google but nothing could I find.

If anyone can Help I would be greatful

Does this error appear for packages installed via synaptic?
Are these packages downloading from online?
What are you trying to install?
Where did you get the package you are trying to install?
