python-pysqlite dependency problem

Ubuntu 8.1.

I'm having all sorts of issues due to a python-pysqlite2 dependency problem that I've introduced. In browsing for solutions, I came across a suggestion to try

sudo dpkg --configure -a

This gives me some fairly typical errors

Setting up python-pysqlite2 (2.4.1-1) ...
pycentral: pycentral pkginstall: not overwriting local files
pycentral pkginstall: not overwriting local files
dpkg: error processing python-pysqlite2 (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of python-pysqlite2-dbg:
 python-pysqlite2-dbg depends on python-pysqlite2 (= 2.4.1-1); however:
  Package python-pysqlite2 is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing python-pysqlite2-dbg (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
I'd be grateful to anyone who can advise me on how to fix this. Yesterday, an upgrade to 8.1 left me with a (thankfully wrong) warning that my system might be unusable.

sudo apt-get remove python-pysqlite2*
sudo apt-get install python-pysqlite2
sudo apt-get install python-pysqlite2-dbg

maybe this helps?

Thanks! I think that worked. If I get any more problems, I'll post again.

Thanks again. Much appreciated.
