    Re: upgrade failure after custom kernel

    deleting that file allowed me to run dpkg --configure -a properly

    update is working now.
    Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

    Glad that it worked!

    However, you're going about things in a risky way.

    Instead of deleting things, move them.

    For example, instead of this:

    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/initramfs-tools/2.6.25.2
    ... do this:

    Code:
    sudo mv /var/lib/initramfs-tools/2.6.25.2 ~
    That way, if it screws something up, you can put it back where it was with this:

    Code:
    sudo mv ~/2.6.25.2 /var/lib/initramfs-tools
    Even if it makes the system unbootable, you can still move the file back after booting from the live CD.

    I'll do that in the future.
