View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Size mismatch for package hpijs at automated security update

November 23rd, 2008, 06:48 PM

I use Ubuntu 7.10 and perform regular security updates. For a few days the update manager tries to update the package hpijs and some other related ones. If I try to install the updates, it downloads the package and then I get the message:

W: Failed to fetch http://at.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/h/hplip/hpijs_2.7.7+2.7.7.dfsg.1-0ubuntu5.1_i386.deb
Size mismatch

Since I don't use this printer driver, I deinstalled all packages but hpijs. It still keeks asking me for updating this one package.

I cannot deinstall hpijs because it would also trigger the deinstallation of other packages I want do keep.

Can anybody tell me what I can do in order to fix that problem?
