Question duplication errors with Clarkconnect

I have installed the latest community 4.0 edition. Registration went well, but I keep on getting error messages when I try to down load the critical /reccommended updates. The message is "this will not be a clean install because of duplicated packages" The solution was to run apt-get update to remove any problems. I tried to do this, but the it keeps hanging on "building dependency trees" The other solution was to manually remove the duplicated packages myself. I cannot find them!! The following packages showed up when I ran a search:
I am quite good at solving problems, but I am still learning when it comes to linux.
Is there anyone who can tell me what command I need to write, or do I need to do a clean install of the program software? I had registration problems the last time I tried to do a clean install - I was forced to change the mothercard so that the linux server thought it was a clean install!!?? I would like some help with that problem. My biggest problem is tha command structure - still a bit foreign to me. I would appreciate any help that I can get on this matter. Thanks

Did you perhaps install a 64-bit version of Clarkconnect?? If yes then this is the problem, apt is not 32_&_64-bit friendly (why the duplicate package issue). Possible solutions are to use yum or download and install the updates manually.

Hi Lenard, sorry for the delay in replying - had problems with my back and have been bed bound. Thanks for the information - it wasn't something I had even considered. Well, it solved my problem, so I am very grateful.
