Postby mcdave on Wed Mar 21, 2012 12:20 am

Hi- hope someone can advise me . . . . .quoted in full below, is this a problem ? If so, what can I do about it ?

trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstxvid.so', which is also in package gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad 0.10.22-0.1
configured to not write apport reports
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_i386.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I get a similar error when I run Update Manager on a freshly installed version of LMDE 64-bit. The system update then aborts, so this error prevents me from having an up-to-date installation:

Here's a copy-and-paste of LMDE's failed attempt to update my system:

FWIW, my /etc/apt/sources.list file looks like this:

Code: Select all

deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free

one of you are running a 32bit system and the other a 64bit, so:
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_amd64.deb

or
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_i386.deb
