after using my sarge home server long and happily, I now have an issue (for some weeks): every time I try to apt-get anything, I have the following error message:
# apt-get upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
vim: Depends: vim-common (>= 1:6.3-071+1sarge3) but it is not installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
well then I used -f, for the system told me (and up to now, that always helped):
#apt-get -f install
Unpacking vim-common (from .../vim-common_1%3a6.3-071+1sarge3_all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/vim-common_1%3a6.3-071+1sarge3_all.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/doc/vim-common', which is also in package vim-doc
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
. I am quite puzzled. No clue on the net
, neither. Today, I apt-get removed vim vim-full vim-common, but no change. Are my packages fouled up? apt database is always kept fresh and up to date ... Oh, by the way, vim works on the box
- although it is not properly installed?!?
Anyone who has a clue? Your help is much appreciated!
