Are we speaking about this fruho? https://fruho.com/download
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

Of course, the next step is to read the error message and follow its instructions.

Ive been through this several times, if it would install correctly then I would not be having the problems that I am having. I guess the only way to fix this issue is to reinstall the OS. Thanks

Well, no, it's not. The correct way to proceed is to follow the advice in the error message then post any other error messages back here. But hey, it's your time and your machine.

Run this, should get rid of it:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --purge --force-remove-reinstreq --force-depends fruho

But did it get removed? I'm actually not quite sure based on those errors.

Otherwise

Code: Select all

sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/fruho*
and

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove fruho
will get rid of it for sure.
