Might as well try this:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get install --reinstall dpkg 
If that doesn't do it, maybe something else here will help:

ls -l /var/lib/dpkg/info | grep -i pips-sot30

sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/pips-sot30.* /tmp
and then

Code: Select all

sudo apt update

As I said earlier method 4 worked go back and check it!
You can mark it [Solved] by put it in your first post title.

Yes but this is what it said on method 4
This should be your last resort. You can try removing the files associated to the package in question from /var/lib/dpkg/info.
Not realizing mv and * /tmp to be added
sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/pips-sot30.* /tmp
we know now :)
Thanks again
