udev isn't configured correctly, stops initramfs-tools from being updated


here is the error:
Code:
# apt-get install
Reading package lists... Done

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
2 not fully installed or removed.

Setting up udev (0.114-2) ...
dpkg: error processing udev (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of initramfs-tools:
 initramfs-tools depends on udev (>= 0.086-1); however:
  Package udev is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing initramfs-tools (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
 udev
 initramfs-tools
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Here is what I've tryed:
Code:
# bash -x /var/lib/dpkg/info/udev.postinst configure notfirst
+ case "$1" in
+ '[' -z notfirst ']'
+ '[' -e /etc/udev/run-write_net_rules ']'

+ update-rc.d udev start 03 S .
+ '[' -x /etc/init.d/udev-mtab ']'
+ update-rc.d udev-mtab start 36 S .

# echo $? 
0
I rebooted already, it seems this is a false error in the scripts with dpkg?

I did find this on the net http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=388374

Try force fully installing udev. udev package should be there at /var/cache/apt/archive. If it's not there download it and install it force fully.

dpkg -i --force-all /var/cache/apt/archive/udev....
If udev successfully installed then you can try

Quote:
apt-get install initramfs-tools

Cool it worked, what could have possibly caused this error?
