Hello. I'm fairly new to Linux and just recently installed Ubuntu 7 on my machine. I want to get wine and some other programs up and going (they aren't important because this happens with any program I try to install) and I get an error about short read in buffer copy or something to that affect. Anyway this is what I see no matter what I'm trying to install. Maybe I'm not using apt properly?
OH. This also happens if I use the Add/Remove programs GUI tool as well with pretty much the same message.
sudo apt-get install wine
(Wine just for example) and receive:
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? Y
(Reading database ... dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libartsc0_1.5.6-0ubuntu1_i386.deb (--unpack):
short read in buffer_copy (files list for package `python-orca-brlapi')
Errors were encountered while processing:
Processing was halted because there were too many errors.
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Thanks in advance
