Trouble installing new apps from Show Applications


I cannot install new apps. I thought this was limited to my problem installing FlightGear, but when I tried to install Wine, I got the exact same error message:

Unable to install Wine:
Error while installing package: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/games/flightgear/Aircraft/c172p/WebPanel/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css', which is also in package flightgear-phi2016.4.2+dfsg1-1

I even tried removing all files and directories under '/usr/share/games/' from the terminal prompt, including the 'flightgear' directory. Even so, I still get this same error message, although none of those subdirectories or files exist anymore.

Thanks for your help.

From your sidebar, it seems you maybe using Ubuntu, if I'm right in thinking that; I'd do a search for a package containing the file it's complaining about. As it says you have another package installed that provides the same file. It would still be listed in your package managers database that, the file mentioned is still installed on your system, even though you manually deleted it. It's a bad idea to manually remove files outside of the package manager where those same files have been installed via software packages.

Type the following command into a terminal window;

Code:
sudo dpkg -S /usr/share/games/flightgear/Aircraft/c172p/WebPanel/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css
Post the results of the above command using CODE tags.

I ran this command from a terminal window, as suggested by the author of FlightGear. This is supposed to remove everything related to FlightGear:

sudo apt remove flightgear flightgear-data-all

However, I got the exact same error message.

By the way, I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.

jsbjsb001, here is the result of running the command you suggested:

Code:
/usr/share/games$ sudo dpkg -S /usr/share/games/flightgear/Aircraft/c172p/WebPanel/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css
[sudo] password for len: 
flightgear-phi: /usr/share/games/flightgear/Aircraft/c172p/WebPanel/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css
Thanks for your quick reply.

While you could try uninstalling the flightgear-phi package and then try installing the wine package; it's probably a good idea to see if there is any conflicting software repositories in your package manager's repositories list;

Run the following command and post the output using CODE tags;

Code:
sudo grep -Erh ^deb /etc/apt/sources.list*

It looks like you have the winehq software repository in your sources.list file twice and it's actually for the winehq.org site, not from Ubuntu's software repositories. I think this could well be your problem - try removing the entries I've highlighted in bold for you above. Then try installing wine again.

jsbjsb001, what you have suggested makes perfect sense. I just am not sure how to "remove" the entries you highlighted.

So before I try anything, I am going to post here the commands I intend to run, before actually doing it. Here goes.

Code:
sudo dpkg -r deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main

sudo dpkg -r deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main
Does this look right? If not,please edit them for correctness before I try it live. Thanks.

No, the "-r" option just removes packages, not software repositories. Just directly edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file with a text editor and remove them. It's just a ASCII text file.

I edited the sources.list file with vi, and now the wine-builds line is commented out.

But when I run the sudo grep command again, the wine-builds line is still showing:

I can't imagine what the problem is.
I dare say it's the line I've highlighted in bold above that's still the problem. You will need to use a text editor that's more user friendly, so we can be certain that line is gone. I will say also that all of those PPA's you have in apt's repositories list are concerning and may well cause further problems later on. Let's just take it step by step, run the command below;

Code:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
gedit should be installed by default and should be much easier to use than vi. Once you've removed that line, then try again to install the wine package.

I used gedit as you suggested. Although the 'wine-builds' line is still there, it is commented out.

Just to be sure, I removed the commented-out 'wine-builds' line. Then I attempted another install of Wine, but I got the same error:

Code:
Unable to install Wine:
Error while installing package: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/games/flightgear/Aircraft/c172p/WebPanel/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css', which is also in package flightgear-phi2016.4.2+dfsg1-1
Perhaps the 'wine-builds' line is in another file which is accessed when I try to install Wine. Could that be?

ok, I was thinking it may well still give you an error, but I think we are closer to resolving this for you. Now it's time to get a little more forceful;

Run the following command to remove the flightgear-phi package forcefully;

Code:
sudo dpkg --purge --force-all flightgear-phi
Then try installing the wine package again. Let us know how it goes.

OK, I ran the above, then I searched for Wine, found it, clicked on the application selection, and it installed!

When I click on the 'Launch' button, nothing happens. But perhaps I can handle it from here.

I'll post back here if I need any more help. But thanks for all your wonderful help!

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: CentOS at the time of this writing, but some others over the years too...

Great news! Well done!

You'll have to configure the wine package, run the following to configure it;

Code:
winecfg
To run a Windows app with it;

Code:
wine /path/to/windows/app
Replace "/path/to/windows/app" with the correct path to the Windows app you want to run with Wine.

(DON'T run wine with sudo)
