if it was installed via syanptic it should be able to be fixed via syanptic or terminal but it won't allow it to be purged or installed completely so it may be a broken package.
That's what I thought, since it is in the repo. Quite odd :?

Edit: this sudo dpkg --force-remove-reinstreq --remove <package_name here> is what I found here ... ed-package.
Can that be useful in this case?

Thank you all for all your help and input, I emailed Redmine for support so I will just have to hang tight.

Firstly, condolences regarding losing your mate.

A month or so ago, I had an issue which involved "sub process" errors
viewtopic.php?f=46&t=261295#p1411753 is the topic where it was discussed and solved.

Now the only similarity between our two issues is the sub-process error, and I could well be way off the mark here, but as can be seen, I tried many of the possible solutions suggested here, without success.
The eventual outcome was removing / reinstalling certain files [again, as can be seen in the thread].

I'm not able to do more than hope that my solution might point those more knowledgeable than me to a solution for you.
Fingers crossed...............

Thank you all again for your help and kind words. So Im reaching out if anyone knows where else to look for help, I called a couple of local computer repair places and seems like none of them work with Linux. Any other suggestions? Thank you all again.

This is the answer I got back from Redmine support team:

Hello Jack,

sorry to hear about your friend. I would love to help myself, but I assume we're not talking about Easy Redmine here, right? Usually I can forward people to our Support team, but they're not really able to help with vanilla Redmine problems, as we've developed a different software - built on top of the vanilla Redmine.

My apologies for not being able to help here. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you ever decide to upgrade the current environment, though.

Best regards,
