    Angry picasa i386 update manager and archive failure

    This did not work in my case:

    I did a fresh install of 12.10. Used the LVM for the first time. All seemed OK until I attempted to add Picasa. Now I cannot use update manager, synaptic was not installed yet.

    I have been searching and doing these below with no fix. Cannot even find an archive to reinstall it then remove it.

    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    sudo apt-get update

    cristos69@cristos69:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade dist

    E: The package picasa:i386 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

    I did the suggestions in this thread... and these below do not help either. Cannot even find an archive to reinstall it then remove it.

    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf

    What do you get if you run this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge picasa picasa:i386

    E: The package picasa:i386 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

    I did a fresh install of 12.10. Used the LVM for the first time. All seemed OK until I attempted to add Picasa 3.0. Now I cannot use update manager, synaptic was not installed yet.

    I have been searching and doing these below with no fix... not in that order, though several times over days. Cannot even find a picasa archive to reinstall it then remove it.

    Just want it gone and to update again.

    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    sudo -i
    cd /var/lib/apt
    mv lists lists.old
    mkdir -p lists/partial
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    apt-get clean
    apt-get update

    @eaglemystic69, I've moved the two posts you made in others' threads about the same issue, plus the one reply you received, into the thread you have just started. Please do not post about the same issue in different parts of the forum; this dilutes the community's ability to help.

    Re: picasa i386 update manager and archive failure

    Anyone have a new recommendation?

    My choice without updates and add/remove is to do another complete install... which is a bummer!
