Bug#671715: libc6: Fail to upgrade from 2.13-27 to newer version !
* What led up to the situation?
My system (debian/testing) is using 2.13-27 version of libc6 and I'm trying to
upgrade to the current testing version...
* What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
I'm trying to do an "aptitude install libc6"
* What was the outcome of this action?
It didn't finish well, I obtain the following messages :
A copy of the C library was found in an unexpected directory:
It is not safe to upgrade the C library in this situation;
please remove that copy of the C library or get it out of
'/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu' and try again.
* What outcome did you expect instead?
An upgrade without problem !
I have tryied :
- to move that file -> nothing work after that so I cannot redo the upgrade !
- to use a rescue CD (PartedMagic), chroot the environement and try to force
the upgrade, but I get the same result !
Is there any solution to make the upgrade happen without reinstalling the whole
