linux mint 9 update manager error

Post by hoshi411 »

toshiba satellite intel duo 32bit
linux mint 9 boot up from persistent usb pen drive

After running the update manager I received the following errors:

E: initramfs-tools: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
E: dmsetup: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: fuse-utils: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
E: gvfs-fuse: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: casper: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

I then tried to set my clock to use an internet server and was told to instal some updates, after which I received the same error and was unsuccessful.

Installing software directly or the use of third party repositories and PPA's in your sources list can be the cause of dependency problems. You will need to run synaptic package manager and look at the broken packages filter which is under the Custom Filters button on the left hand side. If anything is listed there you will need to fix it/them first by examining the versions and sources of the problem packages and disabling conflicting repos or uninstalling.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
