Problem upgrading ca-certificates (Solved)
« on: 2011/11/01, 19:49:13 »
Edit by holgerw: moved into english section

While trying to apt-get upgrade, after the process reads tha changelogs, it's stopping, I assume, during the update of ca-certificates.  The only way to exit is with a ctrl-C.  Now I could put ca-certificates on hold, but, I'd like to see if there is some way I can get past this.
This stop happened once before, but it dealt with fonts, and I was able to remove the offending fonts and move on.  I can't remove ca-certificates, it would require removing close to 400 packages.
This is what I see before the upgrade process stops:

Does anyone have an idea what is going on?  I'm running vanilla Sid on one laptop and one desktop and it's happening on both machines.

Thanks in advance

  Versionstabelle:
 *** 20111025 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sid/main amd64 Packages

It seems to me that it's not the ca-cert-package that's course the problem but the mozilla certs. Could this be because mozilla revoke some certs after the break-in to some ca?

I was watching the forum to see if anyone else had this problem, and, today, after no one else complained I decided to ask.  Vanilla sid on the desktop was installed when I first heard that siduction was to become a new distro.  Sid on the laptop was only installed a couple of weeks ago.  Both were business card installs direct from the Debian repos, the laptop still doesn't even have codecs installed, so, I don't think any malicious certs are in my mozilla file.  Back when I was using sidux, I never had a upgrade stop like this, and, like I said in the origional post, this same error came up once when there was a group of fonts that needed to be upgraded.  
Could there be something in apt.conf or one of the other config files that causes an upgrade to stop when an error like this occurs?  What it seems to be doing is printing out the changelog for ca-certificates before dying.  Geez, I was hoping someone had encountered this problem before.  I may experiment by deleting the mozilla certs and then run the upgrade again, if I can't think of anything else.

Didn't prevent for me too, but that could be because
Code: [Select]
find / -name "certdata.txt" didn't find anything...
also
Code: [Select]
apt-file search certdata.txt find nothing. So it seems to me that there is a file in the system that shouldn't be there. Maybe by an firefox or thunderbird installed by hand?

First I ran apt-get --reinstall install ca-certificates and it blew up again, I then X'd out of the terminal, brought the terminal up again, reran the command, and got an error message, which contained the answer.

root@siduction32kde:/home/goineasy9# apt-get --reinstall install ca-certificates
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

etc, etc, till it finished correctly.  

I still don't understand why it happened on the first run through of a dist-upgrade on both machines, but, it is fixed.  BTW - Thanks Geier0815, I didn't know about apt-file, I got to install the Debian utilities.  Also, certdata.txt wasn't present, nice guess though.  

Thanks to both of you for your input and help.
