Need java help... URGENT


Alright so I'm guessing my java packages didn't install all the way.

Everytime i apt-get upgrade,

i can't and get told to apt-get -f install and then the java files are the only ones causing trouble.

This is basically what happens on apt-get -f install:

Can anyone help? This is driving me crazy. Been on the same problem for more than a day!

Its a Debian 5.0 VPS if that makes a difference.

The first line suggests that there is a lock file; some other aptitude process is running. The second suggests there is a dpkg error; perhaps you got a corrupted download of the .deb file? I would suggest deleting the local copy and ensuring aptitude is not running in any other processes. Re-fetch the file and try again.

yeah, the .deb file like stopped in the middle of it yesterday and it's been like this ever since.

How would i go about deleting the local copy? the files on the desktop related to them? And aptitude isn't listed on the processes box that's currently running.

Which distro are you running now? I'll see if I can figure out where the local storage is.

Check the directory:
/var/cache/apt/archives/

See if the .deb is there.

To get rid of a corrupt deb file, run
Code:
sudo apt-get clean
