Package "menu" causes errors in apt full-upgrade
« on: 2019/02/27, 00:30:17 »
During an apt full-upgrade today, I noticed I got an error from the package "menu"


I am unable to reproduce the error, but it caused the "needrestart" flag not to be set. My system still boots and the GUI works, audio works, etc.




Be warned: there may be an active issue with the package "menu"
every GNU/Linux distro should come with quake (shareware floppy contents) running on a sourceport. If this happens, quake will quickly become the world's #1 first person shooter once again

You don't drive updates very often? That happens. In this case (menu is needed e.g. by kernel-remover) last night.

Just because this flag hasn't been set, nothing happens. After all, you have rebooted.

I got a message like that today:
Code: [Select]
Errors were encountered while processing:
 menu
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Just re-ran full-upgrade command and it didn't reappear.  No problem.

I got the same message, however after running autoclean, autoremove and another full-upgrade it went away. Not sure what the problem was as I could not reproduce it and quit worrying about it until it comes up again.  :)

I have never seen this (yet)

siduction is not the only place seeing this, ubuntu, redhat, arch, lets say everyone

You could try and reconfigure the package database

Code: [Select]
dpkg --configure -a
If the "error" doesn't stop, then we can fix it for good (well, till the next time it's updated at least, but then, that might fix it for good ;) ).

Code: [Select]
apt purge menu; apt autoremove; apt clean; apt update; apt install kernel-remover menu
You may have a few more packages besides kernel-remover, menu, again, depends on what you have installed.

Do not use apt purge menu.  with the period, as this will remove 150 or less/more packages depending what you have installed.
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

It looks like it might have something to do with locales as a lot of things are pointing to mandb and infodb for language's. Being I use localespurge my system seems to clean itself up after an autoclean and autoremove without having to purge anything. More I cannot say at the moment, have to see if it repeats during my next du.  :)
