Updating LMDE - Shouldn't have done it...

Old threads created long before the LMDE forum restructuring

Updating LMDE - Shouldn't have done it...

Postby Imagus on Sat Dec 04, 2010 6:55 am

Well, I tried to run the three lines of code as mentioned in the article about the LMDE update:

Code: Select all
apt update
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/mintdesktop.prerm
apt install mintdesktop


There were a few warnings about virtualbox when I did this, but I thought this was not very important and I could fix that later.

Anyway, after the commands had finished, the icon in my panel indicated that there were 135 recommended updates available. So I tried to install them all, but the process stopped almost immediately with this error:

An error occurred:

E: initscripts: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Update is complete. Not all changes and updates succeeded. For further details of the failure, please expand the 'Details' panel below:


The expanded panel shows a lot of messages about nvidia that I cannot copy because CTRL-C seems to have another function in this kind of window. And indeed, I have lost all my compiz effects, my emerald theme is gone and also my screensaver doesn't work anymore. Great.

Maybe I can try to reinstall the nvidia drivers to get my desktop effects back (if I'm lucky). But the most frustrating part is that I cannot get the 135 updates because of this error. I hope there's a simple solution to all of this, but if not then I'm afraid I'll just have to reinstall everything (again).

This may help with the updates


Thank you. In this thread I read: "Be sure to run those commands after updating, or you will get a "fix broken packages" error when you allow mintupdate to run. If you already did that and now can't get the rest of the updates to install, you can open package manager and mark the packages to update."

Does this mean I have to search, mark and install the 135 packages one by one in Synaptic? I don't think I have the patience for that. I have looked in Synaptic for an option to import the list from Mintupdate, but couldn't find anything.

To fix broken packages from the command line, run
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -f install


From a terminal, ctrl-c stops the current operation. To copy, use shift-ctrl-c, and to paste, use shift-ctrl-v. You can also use ctrl-Ins to copy.

I first opened package manager, chose Edit/fix broken packages. Then typed "mint" in the search field and marked the files that showed an update available. Sorry for not explaining that. I believe there were only seven or eight packages that needed updating. After that, Mint update worked fine and I was able to use mint update normally.

I just tried that, but I still get the same error (E: initscripts: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1) early in the upgrading process. And here is the rest of the messages from the detailed terminal panel:

I think I'll just restore my partition from the image I made last week and not update at all. Or maybe I'll just reinstall LMDE at a later date. By the way, do these updates get incorporated in the iso files? I mean if I download a new iso for LMDE, will everything be installed automatically or will I still need to update manually after installing? If so, I'm really not going to bother with it. My system worked perfectly complete with Compiz and Emerald and these updates completely ruined it. Fortunately I have a fresh image of my partition.

You can restore it with "gksu gedit /etc/init.d/checkfs.sh", and pasting that into the blank file, if it is blank, and saving it.

LMDE is a rolling release, and thus no .iso will have all the updates available, since new updates can be posted daily. But no distro will have an up-do-date .iso if the .iso is older than a day or two, since updates are posted to them, too. You can certainly use the .iso for LMDE without updating it if you want, but expecting to not need to do regular updates is unrealistic, no matter what distro you use. Or even what OS you use.

I tried the gksu command, but the terminal also gives an error before opening gedit:

(gedit:8199): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported

Still, gedit opened fine and I copied the contents of the file you gave, saved it, and then tried to update. Still get the same errors, only this time it appears that checkfs.sh is not an "executable regular file".

Here's the full story:

Since there also appears to be an error in initscripts, I tried to reinstall it with Synaptic, but that didn't work either. Here's what it told me:

E: initscripts: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
E: libgl1-nvidia-alternatives: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
E: libgl1-nvidia-glx: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

There's just too many errors... My system is completely broken, so tomorrow I'm just going to restore my partition and forget about the updates. I know it's not wise to not update regularly, but if updating also means breaking your system I might as well go back to Windows. Surely the .iso's will get updated sooner or later.

The gksu message isn't important. You have to make the script executable. Open a terminal and input
Code: Select all
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/checkfs.sh
Your system doesn't seem to be broken, you just don't know how to do the basics. That's just a matter of experience, which you really need if you plan to use Linux. You have to know how to do basic admin stuff on Linux just as you do on Windows, and it took you time and effort to learn Windows, so don't be surprised when it takes it with Linux.

You appear to have broken packages, thus the errors you're seeing. There is nothing wrong with initscripts, and mucking with that will only cause more problems. To fix broken packages, run
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -f install
and remove the partially installed items.

I understand I still have to learn a lot, but I wouldn't call this kind of errors "basic", especially since it seems that one error only leads to another. I tried the chmod command and the fix broken packages command, but that doesn't help. I can now no longer remove, upgrade, install or re-install anything. Not with mintupdate and not with Synaptic.

Here's the latest message from the installer. Apparently checkfs.sh is "broken" now, and there's also still a problem with dpkg and initscripts. I went back to the beginning and repeated all of the commands you gave (including copy, paste and chmod the checkfs.sh file), but still no luck.

Re: Updating LMDE - Shouldn't have done it...

Postby Tomas_IV on Sun Dec 05, 2010 6:13 am

Well, I'm just guessing, but if the package management system fails to work after trying to do update 135 packages, one possible trouble cause which comes to my mind is full partition containing the /var filesystem. Please try in the terminal command
Code: Select all
du -h

It will list all your mounted disk partitions, their sizes and free space. If any of the partitions is full, it can cause problems. The /var filesystem keeps system logs and also cache of packages, i.e. the packages are downloaded there before they are installed. If you do not have separate partition for /var filesystem, it will be likely part of the root (/) partition. If there is a full partition indeed, post the results here and we should be able to help you further.
Otherwise I hope someone else would come up with a better idea.

Try running:

Code: Select all
sudo aptitude -f install


aptitude may give you more than one option to fix the problem if you decline the first alternative. If that doesn't correct the problem, run:

Code: Select all
sudo aptitude full-upgrade


aptitude can often be better at getting the package manager out of a dependency pickle than apt-get. Be careful with the second command, as it will give aptitude the go-ahead to remove packages where necessary to upgrade others. It will give you a relatively detailed rundown of what it is going to do though so just take note of any packages it plans to remove.

@Tomas_IV: my var folder is not on a separate partition but in the root directory. It contains 12 folders and there is still 8.9 Gb free on the partition, so I don't think that hard drive space is the problem.

@randomizer: I tried the first command (sudo aptitude -f install), accepted the changes that were going to be made, but the process still ends with the same errors. The text in the terminal got rather long, and I only managed to copy the last part:

After that, I also tried the second command (sudo aptitude full-upgrade). I saw the same errors flashing by, then suddenly the whole system went crazy: the screen disappeared then reappeared again, Nautilus started opening new windows all by itself and then, when there were like 50 Nautilus icons on the taskbar, I interrupted the process by closing the terminal. The Nautilus windows then started to disappear one by one (very funny to watch btw, Windows would never clean up a mess like that) and after a few more screen flashes everything went back to normal. I didn't even have to reboot or anything.

Unless there are still options, I think it's safe to assume now that my system is broken enough to restore my whole partition and not touch the update icon until I'm ready to do a whole new install with an updated .iso file.

Thank you.

There's something really screwy with those nvidia packages.
