View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't Update

September 3rd, 2008, 02:57 PM
I am using Hardy, and I am having some trouble updating. In short, I cannot. Not from the updater, or the terminal, or synaptic.

I keep getting this:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libglib2.0-dev_2.16.4-0ubuntu3_i386.deb: files list file for package `evolution-data-server' contains empty filename

I am mostly a novice at this and I need some help.

Try moving the evolution-data-server.list out of the way and reinstalling the package.
Open a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal)

sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/evolution-data-server.list /var/lib/dpkg/info/evolution-data-server.list.old
then try to reinstall the evolution-data-server package

sudo apt-get --reinstall install evolution-data-server

Try removing the akirad's repo that you have in your 3rd party Software list from Software Sources (System>Admin>Software Sources>Third Party Software) then try renewing akirad repo by

sudo wget http://akirad.cinelerra.org/dists/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/akirad.list
wget -q http://akirad.cinelerra.org/dists/akirad.key -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update
