Question E: Internal Error, No file name for libss2 messing up apt-get


The title pretty much says it, whenever I use apt-get I get this message after it: "E: Internal Error, No file name for libss2" messing up apt-get. It doesn't let me apt-get install anything or apt-get remove either. apt-get update works fine, though. I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04.

Hi,

can you please cut and paste the the contents of your terminal when running the following
Code:
dpkg --audit
sudo apt-get -f install
Please put this in [code] tags (like I've done above) so that we can read it more easily.

Evo2.

The following packages are only half configured, probably due to problems
configuring them the first time.  The configuration should be retried using
dpkg --configure <package> or the configure menu option in dselect:
 libc-bin             Embedded GNU C Library: Binaries
And for the second one...
Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  xfonts-encodings xfonts-utils libxfont1 x-ttcidfont-conf libfontenc1 defoma
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 226 not upgraded.
310 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

Hi,

aha, so it looks like "dpkg --audit" is telling you that there are a bunch of packages that failed to fully install. They are unpacked but not configured. I guess you never actually completed that upgrade you mentioned in your first post.
Try to configure all the pending packages with the following command:
Code:
sudo dpkg --configure --pending
The above command is one of the standard tools in recovering from a botched upgrade.

Cheers,

Evo2.

thanks evo2. I had the same issue with libslang2.....I have never used --audit, I always just use apt-get, and after some large dist-upgrades I tend to re-run it again to make sure it went OK since I sometimes don't hang around to watch the upgrade. Thanks timebirds for pointing me over to this thread too.
