    /usr/bin/aptd keeps crashing.

    I have a fresh install of 12.04 and every time my machine boots up I get a crash error. The crashed program is always /usr/bin/aptd. The error now also seems to extend to a distribution upgrade. Ubuntu keeps saying something along the lines of the system could not be upgraded. I haven't tried to upgrade the system.

    I'm not with the machine currently but I can provide screenshots and any details needed.

    It will help if you can post the exact error message verbatim. Also, if there is anything relevant in /var/log/syslog post the relevant excerpt.

    can you use apt?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install aptitude
    Code:
    sudo aptitude reinstall apt

    The only sort of error report I can get fromthis is the GUI crash report.



    Slug, your suggestion didn't work. It just brought back the error in performing distribution upgrade message.

    Is there anything in /var/log/syslog related to the crashes?

    The only thing I can see is this.
