error when using slackpkg to upgrade-all (solved)


Hi,

When trying to use slackpkg to do an upgrade by issuing "slackpkg upgrade-all" I am getting the error below. Anyone able to tell me why, and more importantly, how to fix it.

Thanks

I would try to reinstall from scratch:
removepkg slackpkg
then remove manually all directories that removepkg did not remove because there were modified files in it
installpkg slackpkg

Turns out it was a corrupt findutils package. Re-installed that using installpkg, and the error has gone. So, going for a full upgrade now!!

Wish me luck.

Actually, the package was not corrupt. You probable upgraded to the newest -current version and the previous findutils package was not compatible with the new glibc-solibs that was already upgraded. I had the same problem here but managed using slackpkg with the "-dialog=no" option.

You two saved me some hair today. Thanks. upgradepkg findutils worked fine.
