Messed up the update

Post by pcrene » 29 May 2008, 16:12

Hello I experimented with the sources.list

and now:
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/dhcp-client_2.0pl5-19.1sarge3_arm.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/etc/dhclient.conf', which is also in package bubba
Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/dhcp-client_2.0pl5-19.1sarge3_arm.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I get this...
What can i do to fix this.....(did many thinks with unix..but 20 years ago...)

This is what you can do, first uninstall the bubba package (and make sure that nothing will go wrong white that package is uninstalled). Install the packages you wanted, and after that reinstall the bubba package.

Solved the problem bij cleaning up the blocking installation file..

Now the upgrade works fine and i even got my log-in for the SMTP..

Seems that 20 years of no unix....was no problem at all...still got the feeling for it.... thanks for the support.....

pcrene,

Can you go into more detail about how you cleaned up the blocking installation file?

My bubba has been running fine to the point that I've been neglecting it.

I updated the sources.list and got the exact same word-for-word error message that you posted originally.

I've been trying to fix it but I haven't had any luck.
