View Full Version : [ubuntu] Setuptools causing errors when installing and updating packages

Something really annoying.

Whenever I install new packages or upgrade my system, I would get this error:
(running Hardy)

sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done

1 not fully installed or removed.

Anyone know what is going on here?
