Dist-upgrade of LXQT Version Goes Badly
« on: 2015/09/20, 02:27:38 »
I had read in the Siduction manual that one should do a dist-upgrade to keep up to date. So that's what I did as soon as I completed the installation. There were all kinds of problems, most of which got ironed out. However, I'm left with this prevention of further updating:
Code: [Select]
~# apt-get -f install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded.
5 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0 B/182 kB of archives.
After this operation, 929 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

Unpacking libfm-qt5-2:amd64 (0.9.0+20150908-1) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/libfm-qt5-2_0.9.0+20150908-1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/share/libfm-qt/translations/libfm-qt_zh_TW.qm', which is also in package libfm-qt5-1:amd64 0.8.0-3
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

My question is whether there is a way to fix the above, or do I need to reinstall the OS.

thats the price one has to pay if packages should go to debian - the ftpmasters don't like handling of debian packages that was never in debian before :D
So i guess that the next snippet should work:
Code: [Select]
apt purge libqt5xdg* libfm-qt5*
apt install lxqt screengrab
Should work that way - and no, i don't know what i suggest 8)
