aptdaemon failure


I am running a Wubi 11-10 on a PC with Windows XP. Attempted software installations fail. The error message reads "An unhandlable error occurred. There seems to be a programming error in aptdaemon". Under details:
Traceback (most recent call last)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/distpackages/aptdaemon/workerpv'
line 698

Should I try to run the installer over again and hope that the error has been corrected? Or should I delete it and install from a CD or thumb drive. I don;t have the expertise to correct the error. Any suggestions will be welcome.

Hello,

I don't fully understand your issue; Is this actually in ubuntu, or within windows? The way you have worded it is a bit confusing. But on a side note, read here - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1792106

Cheers,

Josh

Let me try to clarify. I have a PC running Windows XP. I downloaded and installed ubuntu 11-10 as a free-standing program on the PC. That is to say, not in a separate partition. The installation appears fine. However, when I try to download and install software, I get the error message shown in my first post. Now I have your response, and I thank you for the link. I used the link and read the thread posted there. The problem cited seems to be the same as mine. The suggested solution was to type from the terminal (1) sudo apt-get clean, (2) sudo apt-get update, and (3) sudo apt-getupgrade. I tried these commands. The first yielded nothing. The second produced a large volume of results which I presume were updates. The third produced some output. When returned to the GUI and tried to download software, I got the same failure notice with the same detail. The only thing I can add is that the person with the problem posted three error details with three different lines cited. I have no idea if this is meaningful.

It worked. Great Thank you very much. Shouldn't there be a credit box to check? That link you gave me also had some other neat stuff in it pertaining to Oneiric.

What do you mean a credit box to check?

It seems to me that a short time ago there was a check box after an answer to a problem which said "Did I solve your problem?" or some such. I got the impression that a favorable response would be a feather for the solver. Am I dreaming?

Oh, yes there is. You are looking for "Did you find this post helpful," I presume? Look at my previous post, and where you see the buttons for report, quote, underneath it you click yes. Alternatively, you can click the reputation icon beneath my username in my post on the left hand side.

Cheers,

Josh

Forgot to mention this before... If you can, kindly mark your thread as solved using the thread tools located at the top of the page, thanks!

Cheers,

Josh
