Samba didn't get updated correctly


Hi

Some time ago some security update for Samba was released (I'm using Ubuntu-server 6.10). Apt-get complained about some postinstallation configuration that failed. Now, everytime there is an update, it tries to update Samba too, always with the same error. This does not seem to affect the application itself, as it is still working (server is rebooted frequently). The Webmin interface was/is used.

Is there some way of getting the Samba package out of the "queue" so apt-get just ignores it?

Thanks

PS: Will post which version of Samba I have this evening.

Try commenting out all the lines in /etc/apt/sources.list
Code:
sudo apt-get update
uncomment the lines
Code:
sudo apt-get update
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
Hope that works
