    Update manager is not updating without an error message about dkms

    It seems my synaptic-dkms is half configured or not there. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 Precise


    I have looked in synaptic by searching for dkms. Of the many packages with dkms in the name only 2 are installed:

    dkms
    synaptics-dkms (v.1.0.0)

    I can also other items that are half configured in the log below:


    What should I do about these half configurations?


    dpkg.log:

    You might want to look through this thread and see posts 5 and 6

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1738264

    As regards the packages listed as automatically installed and no longer required you can remove them by running the command that was suggested. This is something not to do with the synaptics-dkms issue.

    Code:
    apt-get autoremove
    Regards.
