This bug is already reported and resolved too in other versions of Ubuntu, but I am facing this issue in release 1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.3 !
The procps service fails to start whenever I try to install or upgrade.
The command I am using is: sudo apt-get upgrade
Which results in tonnes of errors snippet is as follows:
Any suggestion, clues are most welcome!
