Upgrade of package "dirmngr" on Debian Testing fails


Hi guys,

on my Debian Testing (32bit - Kernel: 3.2.0-3-686-pae) I encounter the following problem when trying to update installed packages. DPKG cannot configure the new DIRMNGR package. I did quite an extensive search on the web to find a solution, but haven't found anything applicable to my situation. Maybe you can help. In case you need more information, I'll be happy to provide them, please let me know.

Here is the error message (Translation of portions not in English after ##-comments):

Code:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Ein Paket konnte nicht installiert werden. Versuch, dies zu lösen: ##One package could not be

dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten von kde-full (--configure):
 Abhängigkeitsprobleme - verbleibt unkonfiguriert
Fehler traten auf beim Bearbeiten von:
 dirmngr
 kleopatra
 kdepim
 kde-full

I cannot update any package anymore, as dpkg always tries to configure the problematic packages DIRMNGR, KLEOPATRA, KDEPIM & KDE-FULL. In addition, the tray in GNOME Fallback informs me that some dependencies of installed packages are not met.


It seems to me that there is a syntax error in the installation script for DPKG, so I search files and directories with 'dirmngr' in their name.

Code:
find / -iname dirmngr
gave me the following results:

Code:
/var/log/dirmngr
/var/lib/dirmngr
/var/lib/update-rc.d/dirmngr
/var/cache/dirmngr
/usr/lib/dirmngr
/usr/share/doc/dirmngr
/usr/bin/dirmngr
/run/dirmngr
/etc/default/dirmngr
/etc/dirmngr
/etc/init.d/dirmngr
/etc/logrotate.d/dirmngr
Some are directories with configuration files for DIRMNGR itself, some are files in their own right
(BTW: Anyone know how have the console tell me which result of the find-command are files and which
are directories?). There weren't any lines 15, 51 etc. I could look into for syntax errors. (Well,
I wouldn't be able to fix them anyway)

Was that the wrong approach? Would I have to look for the config file in question in a different
place, dpkg or apt, say?


Apparently I'm not a Debian expert, I'm using this distribution to learn. That's why I'm asking.

Thanks a lot for your help,

Pascal

Thumbs up You could try

Try this:
Code:
apt-get update
Then do
Code:
apt-get update
followed by
Code:
apt-get install apt-show-versions
then run the command
Code:
apt-show-versions -u
The -u will show what needs to be upgraded.
Then run
Code:
apt-get install PACKAGENAME
Hope this helps MY

Is that correct, two times:
Code:
apt-get update
????




Or should the second command rather be:
Code:
apt-get upgrade
????

Thank for your help

When attempting an upgrade via

Code:
apt-get upgrade
I get told the following:

Code:
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig ##Reading package list...Done##
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut  ##Building dependency tree##     
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen... Fertig ##Reading status information...Done##
Probieren Sie »apt-get -f install«, um dies zu korrigieren. ##Try 'apt-get -f install' in order to solve this:##
Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten: ##Following packages have unmet dependencies:##
 kleopatra : Hängt ab von: libkdepim4 (= 4:4.4.11.1+l10n-2) aber 4:4.4.11.1+l10n-3 ist installiert
             Hängt ab von: libkleo4 (= 4:4.4.11.1+l10n-2) aber 4:4.4.11.1+l10n-3 ist installiert
E: Unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten. Versuchen Sie, -f zu benutzen.
So I tried the following:

Code:

Finally doing:

apt-show-versions -u
gives my a long list packages to be upgraded.

Do you want me to install/upgrade each one manually? Should be about 120 packages, dirmngr and kleopatra are not among them.

I don't read German, but it looks like I see apt-get -f.

Did you run apt-get -f to see if it fixes the problems?

Some of the depends may need to be upgraded.

Run apt-get install -f, then run apt-get upgrade again. Then run apt-show-versions -u. If you show packages that need upgrading, then you will have to do a manual upgrade (which is apt-get install PACKAGENAME).

try that and post back.

Excuse me for not translating the whole stuff. You are correct, I was asked to type 'apt-get -f' and ran into the same dependency issues, after dirmngr could not be configured.

I'll try the manual upgrade tomorrow, that will take some time typing....

Again, thanks a lot for your help. I posted this problem on a few (local) mailing list, but all I got as a response, was a discussion whether one should use Debian Testing in the first place (As it is soooooo unstable) and more specifically that I, having no LPIC3 or Red Hat certification, had totally lost my senses in running Debian (and not a newbie friendly distribution like Ubuntu) or actually getting even close to a keyboard. Well.....

Sorry you had so much problem getting help elsewhere. You have come to the right place.

  • Step 4
    apt-get upgrade

    Code:

    aacgain is already the newest version.
    aacplusenc is already the newest version.
    The following package has been installed automatically and is required anymore:

    The following packages will be REMOVED:
      akonadi-backend-mysql libept1 libgdl-3-1 mysql-server-core-5.1
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      akonadi-backend-sqlite libaio1 libatomicparsley0 libgdl-3-2 libmysqlclient18
    The following packages will be upgraded (Upgrade):
      amarok amarok-common amarok-dbg amarok-utils anjuta-common apt gtkpod gtkpod-data libanjuta-3-0
    libgdl-3-common libgtkpod1 mysql-common

OK You can try this:

Make sure to back up of docs first

switch over to console (not terminal in desktop, but control+alt+F1)

Shut down your desktop

/etc/ini.d/+whatever your desktop is, I think I saw kde
now
apt-get update
then apt-get install apt

once that is done reboot your computer to clear

then apt-get update

now here's a little trick

on the command line type script >2120718-upgrade
(This will start a script for you that will copy everything that goes on till you type exit to stop the script).

now type apt-get upgrade

when it comes time to answer y/n type n and then type exit

Now you have a copy of everything that blew passed you on the screen.

open up your list with a text editor and start reading. This will give you each package and it depends.

See how many you have in total and then you can work your way through this list with apt-get install.

I don't know how out of date your system was. It will take a little time to work through. I have had one system that had over 300 packages that needed upgrading and yes it took a couple of hours.

A couple of thing:

If you run into a problem with apt-get install PACKAGE, run apt-get install -f to fix and then move to the next one.

use apt-show-versions -u to show you what needs to be upgraded. pick one and apt-get install PACKAGE.

second thing, use apt-cache policy PACKAGE to show you what's installed now.

one step at a time, inch by inch it's a cinch.

If that too much for you.

Download the latest Sid and wipe the machine and start over.

Keep me posted

You are running Debian Testing (although your prompt says debian-sid?), so you should always upgrade your system with
Code:
apt-get dist-upgrade
, not
Code:
apt-get upgrade
You have 166 packages that are not updated because they are held back by using upgrade instead of dist-upgrade. Try to update with dist-upgrade.

Your observation is totally correct, TobiSGD, the prompt says "debian-sid". That's because it was originally set up as Debian Unstable and used that way for about a year. I decided to switch my repositories to "Testing" as many packages in "Unstable" aren't much newer, or even newer at all. So I thought I might change my sources to "Testing", since that is supposed to be more stable. As far as my experience with the two versions is concerned, they do not differ very much in terms of stability, if at all. I encounter actually more problems under "Testing" than under "Unstable", but do not think that one can generalize that impression.

Finally I can report back with some results, or rather outcomes, as I wasn't too successful inmanually upgrading the packages. Only a few packages could be upgraded without difficulties, i.e.error messages or warnings. I'm through all of the list, but I thought it would be better to give feedback now.

Most packages could not be installed because dirmng could not be configured or any of the packages KDE, Kleopatra, etc. See my previous post on details - I received the same error message.

All the while other packages pose a particular problem, as apt-get warns me that their
installation/upgrade might make my system unstable. See error message below. I'm unsure how to proceed, since apt for example should work I would assume.

The manual installation have brought more problems than solved. Nautilus and Dolphin do not work anymore, that is they crash shortly after starting (I work under GNOME Fallback Mode, but use quite a few KDE programs). All KDE multimedia applications (Amarok, Bangarang, JuK,,,) refuse to even start. The akonadi-system is broken by now, and for the past few days I have been trying to get it fixed, that's why haven't responded earlier. Not one of the programs in KDE-PIM can be used anymore.
