LMDE: Aptitiude: Partially Configured Packages?


Hi all,

Whenever I use aptitude, I get the following error:

No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed.

I tried reinstalling these packages but it didn't do much. Any suggestions as to how I can fix it? It doesn't seem to affect anything.

I found a bug reported for Ubuntu on this.


You can try the following which several users confirmed solved the rpoblem:

Code:
sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/python3_3.2.3-3ubuntu1_all.deb && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Now I'm concerned with teh apt-get dist-upgrade portion of this as that will attempt to ugprade your kernel and so forth but that is what is reported as the solution.

Read over the following to get info on what dist-upgrade actually does: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...pgrade-219920/

Bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...s/+bug/1024016

Hi, I don't have that package, probably due to running Mint Debian, rather than Ubuntu version of Mint?

It doesn't really look like I have anything related in there.

Thanks for the idea anyway.

it may not be named the same thing.

what does the following give you? You should have a python package in your apt cache and thats where the issue is.

Code:
ls -al /var/cache/apt/archives/python3*

Debian has a package called python3.3 Maybe that's the one you need to install?

Thanks for the responses.

Code:
ls -a /var/cache/apt/archives/py*
/var/cache/apt/archives/python-libtorrent_0.15.10-1+b1_amd64.deb
/var/cache/apt/archives/python-pygame_1.9.1release+dfsg-7_amd64.deb
/var/cache/apt/archives/python-pyinotify_0.9.3-1.1_all.deb
Nothing obvious there. Would that be clearled by 'sudo aptitude autoclean' or 'sudo apt-get autoclean'?

For python3.3
Code:
Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "python3.3"

Can I politely request a bump on this, as the computer is still suffering this.

Did you see jdkaye's post? Have you tried downloading the appropriate python3 package and installing it with 'dpkg -i'? I don't use LMDE so I don't know where you would get it from, but if you post your /etc/apt/sources.list I (and others here) should be able to work it out.

So, did you download the deb file? Did you install it?

I tried to download the package but it reminded me of Linux many years ago, where I kind of had to play guess what's missing. So I added the appropriate line to my /etc/apt/sources.list and use aptitude to install it.

Python3.3 is now installed and at the end of the installation it gave this error:
Code:
Errors were encountered while processing:
 python3-minimal
 python3.2
 python3
 python3-apt
 wajig
Please bare in mind that I really do not know or understand computers when I ask this, I have no idea what python even does on my computer. Can I just uninstall python3-minimal, python3.2, python3, python3-apt and wajig?

I don't know why you edited your sources.list: This was not suggested by anyone. What did you add to your sources.list?

From the error messages you posted earlier, it looks like python 3.3 will conflict with python3-apt. Please post the full error message and your sources.list file.

Python is a scripting language and is used by many packages on your system. In general you can't simply uninstall it.

I tried installing the single package, it refused to let me install it as it had unmet dependancies and I tried installing about 5-6 of them before I felt like I was chasing my tail. I figured this was due to the advice I initially ignored at the top of this page where I downloaded the .deb file which told me to add it to my /etc/apt/sources.list.

Is it really normal to have that debian jesse line in your sources.list?

The error message indicates that python3-minimal needs it, however you may not need python3-minimal... or any of python3 since presumably the system is actually using python2.x for most things. If you want to try this solution, then try running the following:
Code:
sudo apt-get remove --purge python3-minimal
(Debian recommends using apt-get over aptitude for non-interactive command line operations: not sure what LMDE recommands). You should get some output showing what packages will be removed, and a "Do you want to continue [Y/n]" prompt. If unsure if you should continue post the output including the list of packages to be removed here.

Neither Romeo or Jesse mean anything to me other than being names of Debian, but how that impacts me, or the packages that are installed, I have no idea. I have no idea what happened for me to get into this place and I'm really lost in how to get out. I am not a computer guy. I'm afraid all this technical jargon is completely lost on me.

Configuration file `/etc/bash_completion.d/wajig'
 ==> File on system created by you or by a script.
 ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : start a shell to examine the situation
 The default action is to keep your current version.
*** wajig (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?
I typed D to see the differences. I'm not sure which option I want to select. Guidance would be gratefully received as I'm currently stuck on that screen.

Code:
sudo apt-get remove --purge python3-minimal
(Debian recommends using apt-get over aptitude for non-interactive command line operations: not sure what LMDE recommands). You should get some output showing what packages will be removed, and a "Do you want to continue [Y/n]" prompt. If unsure if you should continue post the output including the list of packages to be removed here.
I've tried that command, selecting no just to see the options. The output is printed below.
Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  python3* python3-apt* python3-minimal* wajig*
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 4 to remove and 1188 not upgraded.
5 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 1,121 kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n
Abort.
I appreciate your help and have no doubt it must be frustrating to be working with someone who doesn't really have a clue but I am very grateful.
