I just tried to dist-upgrade a older Riders install that hadn't been updated for a while.  It had 1027 updates.  It was able to update about half of the packages marked for update, but seemed to bork when it hit python3-pykde4.

When I rebooted it told me that Consolekit could not start the session (although kde did eventually start) because the permission of the setuid helper was not correct.  Similar error came during the dist-upgrade:
Error: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.Permissions Invalid: The permission of the setuid helper is not correct.

I tried apt-get -f install, without success.  So, before I start experimenting with other methods to fix the problem, does anyone know of a simple fix?  The whole output is in the code section below.

On my other 3 Riders installations, which were updated with more frequency, I didn't run into this problem.  Any ideas?

I would first try to purge software-properties-kde and then try a du, if all goes well reinstall software-properties-kde

I actually thought this was a ubuntu only  package

http://packages.debian.org/sid/software-properties-kde

Understanding that a dpkg guru like DonKult could probably trace the problem to a single bad actor package, I have been known to simply rip out the entire DE, run my dist-upgrade, then reinstall the DE to get around this kind of situation. It's a crude "solution", but it's also usually a fast solution.

i had a simila problem some time ago. I think you can delete software-properties-kde following this guide

i hope it helps

Thanks belize, the tutorial allowed me to remove software-properties-kde, but, the problem remains.

@dibl  I hear what your saying, I'm getting close.  I wanted this install to experiment with dracut, and, I'm spending to much time with this.  Though I'm OCD about giving up.

@piper  This, after removing software-properties-kde.

OK, so I guess that Ubuntu link didn't actually remove software-properties-kde. I should have checked after I ran the routine). python3-pykde4 is not installed.  I guess it did work for that.

Could I see the output of
Code: [Select]
apt-get remove --purge python3-pykde4 libpython3.3 python3-pyqt4 python3-sip software-properties-kde  -s

I don't have  python3-pykde4 installed (nor software-properties-kde), but I know it will bring in libpython3.3 python3-pyqt4 python3-sip, just curious what it will remove.

Edit: Actually installing the whole thing
Code: [Select]
piper@x1:~$ apt-get install python3-pykde4 software-properties-kde -s
NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt-get needs root privileges for real execution.
      Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
      so don't depend on the relevance to the real current situation!

Disregard the mythtv stuff ;)

When was the last time you did a du ?

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

As I mentioned in my first post, it was a while.  I checked dpkg.log, it was 6/22/13.  KDE was going from 4.10.4 to 4.11.1 in this update.

Code: [Select]
root@siduction64kde:/home/goineasy9# apt-get remove --purge python3-pykde4 libpython3.3 python3-pyqt4 python3-sip software-properties-kde  -s
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree    
Reading state information... Done
Package 'python3-pykde4' is not installed, so not removed
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 apper : Depends: software-properties-kde but it is not going to be installed
 python-kde4 : Depends: libpython3.3 (>= 3.3.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


Seems like I can't do anything without the error.

This was interesting:
Code: [Select]
root@siduction64kde:/home/goineasy9# dpkg -i --ignore-depends=python3-pykde4 python3-pykde4
dpkg: error processing python3-pykde4 (--install):
 cannot access archive: No such file or directory
Errors were encountered while processing:

dpkg: warning: ignoring request to remove software-properties-kde which isn't installed

  Version table:
     0.92.25debian1 0
        500 http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages


So I emptied /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/kde and removed software-proerties-kde and using apt-get -f install I got:
Code: [Select]
root@siduction64kde:/home/goineasy9# apt-get -f install

So it sees python3-pykde4 software-properties-kde as dependencies of other installed programs.

Decision to do a reinstall is getting close, especially since your not showing these packages at all.

I would hold off on the "reinstall"

Santa, *might be able to help on this one :)

I would also do a du more frequently in the future, once a week at the least ;)

Hey Piper

After installing Firestarter on a separate HD and transferring everything over from the Riders HD, I lost track of the install.  It sat under another HD since June.  I figured I'd upgrade it and use it for testing.  I don't usually wait such a long time between updates.

At this point doing a reinstall and having to update may just lead me back into the same predicament, unless I leave kdenext disabled, so, I'll let it sit and see if Santa comes up with anything. I'd like to know what went wrong.

My old thinkpad G41 was also recently updated after a long stretch and had no problem, but, then again, it doesn't have experimental or kdenext repos enabled.

I'm not a fan of long waits between updates, but, neither of these were active installs.  The two laptops that I actively use, have experimental and kdenext enabled and have been updated weekly without problems.  The same goes for my Firestarter desktop.

I seem to be ruled by Murphy's Law.  I start one project and wind up spending my time sidetracked by another.

Hi,

I have uploaded a pykde4 to kdenext which might fix your issue.

Santa, you're amazing.  apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade; apt-get -f install fixed the pykde4 problem and finished installing those programs that were already downloaded.  Another apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade finished the whole upgrade.

@piper  Thanks for your help and advice, and, thanks for the feedback.
