On issuing the command sudo dpkg -i (package name) at chronos@localhost ~ $, I get the response sudo: dpkg: command not found. Anyone know why? I'm trying to load version 3 of network-manager and three related files to correct a known problem accessing wifi in 12.04 on some Toshiba computers, so Ubuntu is offline.
When I try to update my sources via sudo apt-get update I come across this error.
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
So, after running that, I try to update again. It tells me I need about 2MB of updates, so I allow them to download.
I tried removing some packages i had installed and received the following error message
dpkg: error: parsing file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 7683 package 'fonts-tlwg-loma':
EOF during value of field `Breaks' (missing final newline)
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
I have tried sudo apt-get install -f among others i have read online but none is working.
many and many and many times I see sudo dpkg-reconfigure foo what is that? seems to be configuration? but what is the relation between that and .conf file? is there any file which store this configuration. If you need example sudo dpkg-reconfigure postfix. I need some more description what I know is just it is for package configuration.
Recently I tried installing teamviewer7 on my Ubuntu 12.04. I tried downloading the deb which due to some reason never did finish its download (stopped at ~~10MB/17MB).
Expectedly, installing the same gave unmet dependencies. I followed instructions given
