dpkg error: syntax error in triggers file
 
Hello,

A colleague of mine just got a read-only filesystem on his personal VPS (running VirtualBox) and when he rebooted, he can no longer install any packages.
Anyone have a clue about this?

root@foo:~# dpkg --configure -a
dpkg: error: syntax error in file triggers file `/var/lib/dpkg/triggers//File'

root@foo:~# cat /var/lib/dpkg/triggers/File
<?php
// auto-generated by sfDefineEnvironmentConfigHandler
// date: 2012/03/28 17:02:00
sfConfig::add(array(
'mod_'.strtolower($moduleName).'_enabled' => true,
'mod_'.strtolower($moduleName).'_view_class' => 'sfPHP',
'mod_'.strtolower($moduleName).'_is_internal' => false,
));

Best Regards
Lpe

Solved it by copying the contents of a friends Ubuntu.

root@foo:~# cat /var/lib/dpkg/triggers/File
