Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/sane-utils_1.0.24-8+deb8u2_amd64.deb


I am getting error while installing the sane-utils package. I was unable to use scanner on the network , so I messed things up.

Code:

Hi anmol26s and welcome to LQ.

I feel you should add some more information here to have others be able to help you.

What distribution and version are you trying to install this on?

What are the system specifications you are trying to perform this with?

Hi rtmistler
Thanks for you reply.

I have Debian Jessie and this error comes when I try to update with apt-get update or try to install this package manually with apt-get install sane-utils. On service saned restart I get:
Failed to restart saned.service: Unit saned.service failed to load: Invalid argument.

systemctl status saned show:
● saned.service
Loaded: not-found (Reason: Invalid argument)
Active: inactive (dead)

OK, that's a problem with the package itself. /var/cache/apt/archives is where Debian stores downloaded package files before installing them. It looks like sysv-init and systemd are kind of duking it out.

I would use the reportbug program to report the situation. You run it from the command line. Then, after a few days it should work. For now, you can remove the offending package.
