Question apt-daemon not working in Ubuntu


I use xubuntu 11.10. I am unable to install/remove any application from my computer. Whenever I go to install from the Software Centre, it says that aptdaemon is not working. Whenever i try to install/remove from the terminal, it says,
Quote:
The package ooobasis3.4-core04 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
[I had installed OpenOffice a few days back and after that this problem started. I think ooo means OpenOffice.Org].

I want to upgrade online to 12.04 but update manager also doesn't run. It says that I should do a Partial Upgrade.

How did you install Open Office? And where did you get it from?

In any case, although this source is a few years old, it should help you fix your problem: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/package-in...-solution.html

I download ooo from its site and installed all the deb packages it had given me. I followed the instructions at the ubuntu geek site you gave but then I get the following error:
Quote:
dpkg: dependency problems prevent removal of ooobasis3.4-core04:
openoffice.org3 depends on ooobasis3.4-core04; however:
Package ooobasis3.4-core04 is to be removed.
dpkg: error processing ooobasis3.4-core04 (--remove):

Hi,

is there any particular reason you are trying to use this method to install OOo? If not I recommend that you remove/purge those packages and reinstall using the packages provided by Ubuntu.

I came to know that the packages in the Software Center are useless (seen from comments). This is the method I found in the net. But now, if I have to remove OOo, i dont have any problem as I feel LibreOffice is better.

As evo2 said, I would remove --purge Open Office using either dpkg or apt-get. Then install the Open Office or Libre Office package that is in the Ubuntu repos.
Your problem clearly developed because you installed a package outside of the Ubuntu repos that is unsupported.
You can either try to work to get this fixed; or remove the unsupported package and install the package that is supported.

If you really, really must have the latest and greatest Open Office, then perhaps there is an Ubuntu PPA repo for this.
Remember that those PPA repos are also unsupported by the Ubuntu devs.

Can you provide a link to how exactly you installed Open Office???

I download the tar.gz file from the OOo site and then installed all the debs in it using the terminal command:
Quote:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
.
Can you give me the terminal command to forcefully remove OOo?

Hi,

first try the fix-missing option of apt-get:
Code:
sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
Hopefully that will remove the packages with broken dependencies.
Please run it and post the exact output here if you have problems.

Hi,

notice I said "and so on". Please try to remove/purge the reverse dependencies.
