Problem with updating. Header error?
When I tried updating my machine running Ubuntu 13.10 I got an error saying that my headers were unconfigured (or something to that effect). So I open up Synaptic Package Manager and attempt to reinstall "linux-headers-3.11.0-19" and "linux-headers-3.11.0-19-generic" and get the following error message.
E: linux-headers-generic: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting configuration.
E: linux-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
So I tried to reinstall those packages and got this error:
E: Internal Error, No file name for linux-generic:amd64
Anyone have any ideas that don't involve a fresh install?
Re: Problem with updating. Header error?
Looks like I might have fixed it by running
sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-generic
I'll have to see the next time an update is available, but I'm thinking it's all going to be alright.
