View Full Version : [xubuntu] Error Installing the Base System

June 5th, 2008, 07:07 AM
Hi I'm trying to install Xubuntu 8.04 on my old vaio using the alternate install cd.

The installer stops at installing the base system and gives me the following error:
"Debootstrap warning

Warning: Failure trying to run: chroot /target dpkg --force-depends --install var/cache/apt/archives/dpkg_1.14.16.6ubuntu3_i386.deb"

Is this a common issue?
