Hi,

I'm in need of a good long vacation I think . I'm not sure if it has to do with the way apt-get works but when I run the script it only processes the first line and then exits. I don't know however get the error you're getting, so I'm a bit lost there. But playing around here at work I found an easier solution.

Code:
sudo apt-get install `cat p2install.txt`
(cat p2install.txt is between back-ticks so that command gets executed and replaces it with the contents of the file).

That one command should process the entire list in p2install.txt file, including any dependencies if needed.

Kind regards,

Eric

Can you answer that question? Ie are you using apt-get, aptitude or dpkg in another terminal at the same time?

If you are not sure please post the output of:
Code:
ps aux | grep -E 'apt|dpkg'
Edit: And
Code:
sudo fuser -vk /var/lib/dpkg/lock

Evo2.

Hello evo2, thanks for trying to helping again.
the output of ps aux | grep -E 'apt|dpkg' is :

Hi,

I guess that apt-get process is running in a terminal somewhere waiting for some input from you. Can you find that terminal?

There is only 1 opened terminal, and there's no process being used. Shall I kill all the mentioned processes using kill 8803,8825 8831 and 8838 ?

Sorry, I just realized that I asked you to use '-k' with fuser: that will have automatically killed the processes. So now you should be able to run:
Code:
sudo apt-get install `cat p2install.txt`

okay, now the output is :
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configre -a' to correct the problem.
Shall I use this command ?

I did. There was no output. Should I run sudo apt-get install `cat p2install.txt` again ?
