[solved]no joy with update

Postby houndhen » Wed Oct 19, 2011 10:37 pm

I have installed Mint Debian 32 bit XFCE. Rebooted and tried to update. Got this error as have a lot of people:

Code: Select all

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_i386.deb: 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

Read and followed the thread:

Code: Select all

http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=185&t=83305
Did this from terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
then from terminal did this:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_amd64.deb
then from terminal I did this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
and I still get this:

Code: Select all

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_i386.deb: 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
and the update manager is showing that I have 347 updates that will take up 318mb.

I am going in a circles and don't know what to do next. Is there a thread that I missed that I need to look at?

The file you tried to fix was for the 64-bit version and you have the 32-bit version. Try

Code: Select all

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


If that doesn't work hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I will come forward to help.

If you want to download the rest of the updates uncheck the 'gstreamer' file in Mint Update which will instruct Update to ignore this problematic file and allow you to get everything else.

I think I tried to update before changing the repositories. I will probably just re-install and change repositories before trying to update and see how that goes.
Thanks,

When you do the update after changing the repos the first update is just mint updater then it offers you a big list and just deselect the "gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad" and every thing installs OK then.

After doing those updates if you click on the updater again it offers you the "gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad" and you can update it then

edit: and then go in synaptic and remove "kexec" to get rebooting working correctly

Thanks for the help. Sure glad I am not totally new to Linux. Did those first two things and they seemed to work. Looked in Synaptic and did a search for "kexec" and the only thing that shows is "kexec-tools" and it is not installed. I would guess that the rebooting shouldn't be a problem, then?
Thanks,
Harold

Thanks odo5435!! The force-overwrite flag worked magically. :D
