MInt 19: python3 upgrade messed up. Update manager blocked.

Post by ec91066 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 8:29 am

Hello all,

While installing the latest upgrades in Mint 19, received an error message while configuring python3.

"E: python3: installed python3 package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 4"

Now Update Manager is blocked, keeps resuming at this point.

Any help appreciated. Thanks

Errors were encountered while processing:
python3
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

This is the first package in the list of updates, and attempting to install any of the other updates(via terminal) causes the same issue.

Try

apt install --reinstall hplip hplip-data

followed by

apt install --reinstall python3

Exact same error, running either of those commands - attempts to run 'rtupdate' then the errors occur.

There's a couple of bug reports for this -

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1766020
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1779237

No resolution though.

I'm not sure what's going on - I've successfully updated Python today from python3 (3.6.5-3) to 3.6.5-3ubuntu1. I have hplip and hplip-data installed.

What does ls /usr/share/hplip return?

You could try removing hplip and trying to reinstall python

apt purge hplip-data
apt autoremove
apt install --reinstall python3
apt install hplip-data

What does ls /usr/share/hplip return?
As the comment below yours posted, it shows "ui4" but the update is expecting a "ui5" folder.

I also attempted the 4 commands you suggested, and the same error code happens on the first command.

That's the same version I've got.

OK another tact - avoiding Mint's apt wrapper which is written in python....

sudo /usr/bin/apt purge hplip-data
sudo /usr/bin/apt install --reinstall python3

Can you post back actual error messages you are seeing when attempting those commands?

OK - let's try renaming the offending folder and see if the update will go through.

sudo mv /usr/share/hplip/ui4 /usr/share/hplip/ui5

then try again with

sudo /usr/bin/apt install --reinstall python3

Strike that - just try an sudo /usr/bin/apt update
