I found this topic
, which possibly holds this solution:
- Code: Select all
dpkg -i --force-overwrite <<all_package_names_listed_at_the_bottom_of_error_output>>
dpkg --configure -a
Replace "<<all_package_names_listed_at_the_bottom_of_error_output>>" with the package name that comes after "Errors were encountered while processing:". You may have to repeat the process a couple of times.
The explanation is in the same topic, but I'll paste it here for good order:
It forces the overwriting of a file that exists in another package(s) due to a packaging error. A file should only exist in one package at a time and every now and again someone makes a mistake and includes it two or more packages, therefore you need to use the --force-overwrite to get by it and install the new package(s).
Edit: Viking's solution will most likely work as well, but it's a work-around
