I am trying to remove yaws-mail package but get errors


When i use the synaptic package manager to remove the yaws-mail package it gives an error

and when I use sudo apt-get -f install to try and fix it it gives this error:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I have tried removing it using aptitude and I get the same error.

it seems something is broken but i don't know what.

It is stopping any further installations of packages.

Can anyone shine some light on this problem please.

Thanks
