broken packages

Postby jmidd on Fri Jun 13, 2014 10:48 am

I am new to Linux. I installed Linux MATE 32x on my desktop and every time I try to udpate I get the same errors. It tells me I have 8 broken pages. When I try to install them or the latest updates I get the following error:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libqtgui4_4%3a4.8.4+dfsg-0ubuntu18.3_i386.deb: cannot copy extracted data for './usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/' to '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/': unexpected end of file or stream

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello, jmidd.

The following steps are suggested: Plrease, open a terminal window and execute the following commands in the given order:
Code: Select all
sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/libqtgui4_4%3a4.8.4+dfsg-0ubuntu18.3_i386.deb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
sudo apt-get upgrade

It would be nice if you posted the complete screen output, in particular if any error occurs, e.g. a complaint about broken packages.

Kind regards,
