    Vnstat error on installing

    I am using Ubuntu 16.04. When I'm trying to install `vnstat` by running:

    sudo apt-get install vnstat

    I get the following error:

    Error “E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)”

    Can someone help me fix this?

    You'll have to read further up in the messages to see the problem. That message is a summary hinting for you to look back to see the real error message (ie. look at the message from the sub-process that caused the return value to be set to 1)
